Abby and Brittany Hensel, the conjoined twins who became famous for their TV guestings, posted some throwback photos taken during Abby’s wedding.

On their official TikTok page, the two posted a compilation of snaps from when Abby tied the knot with nurse and United States Army veteran Josh Bowling. 

With the caption "#forever," the slideshow features pictures of them with their flower girl as well as couple photos captured on their special day—with But Daddy I Love Him from Taylor Swift's latest album The Tortured Poets Department playing in the background.

Abby and Josh got hitched in 2021 but it only became known to the public when TODAY reported about it in March 2024, citing official records.

Abby and Brittany rose to fame in 1996 following their appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show when they were just six years old.

They had their own reality show dubbed Abby & Brittany on TLC in 2012, which revolved around their lives as conjoined twins. The TV offering only had one season.

According to E! News, the two "were born fused together at the torso and remain so as adults."

"They have separate spinal cords, brains, hearts, and other organs but share those located below the waist. Brittany controls the left side of their body, while Abby controls the right," the entertainment outlet reported.

During their birth in 1990, their parents Patty and Mike refused to have them separated via surgery as doctors told them there was little chance for the procedure to be a success.

In a 2003 documentary, Brittany revealed her and Abby's desire to become mothers in the future.

"Yeah, we're going to be moms. We haven't thought about how being moms is going to work yet. But we're just 16, we don't need to think about that right now," she said at the time.
