'World's most identical twins' want to get pregnant at the same time by the same man
Anna and Lucy DeCinque are sisters from Perth, Australia. But they aren't like most sisters. They're identical twins, for starters - and their similarities go far beyond their looks. They dress the same, act the same, and, despite being 33 years old, they still share a bed.
Even more bizarre than that, though: they also share a boyfriend.
Ben Byrne, who is 35 years old, is dating both Anna and Lucy - and all three of them are very happy with the setup. "Love is love; we are all adults," they said.
But things might get a bit complicated between them in the very near future, as the two women both want to have a baby with Ben... at the same time.
The twins revealed their plans to become mothers simultaneously on Australia’s Today show.
"We want to experience pregnancy together. We want our bodies to look the same because we're so close, we always want to be together and do the same," they said.
"That's why we share a boyfriend and so we want to experience pregnancy together, it's such a beautiful thing for any mother to go through.
"We're going to make that happen. If it happens, it happens so we will see. Time will tell."
But they understand that their wishes may be hard to fulfil.
"We need to be pregnant at the same time," they said. "It’s going to be another challenge. There’s a lot of pressure on Ben."
The sisters considered going through IVF in order to have a better chance at guaranteeing that they would be pregnant, but their mother convinced them to try and conceive naturally. They have accepted, however, that the chance of them both conceiving and having their babies at exactly the same time are very low.
"At the end of the day, that's not really a call we can make. And that's when nature comes in I think. You can't control these things," they said to one another. "But it would be amazing if we got pregnant at the same time. Even if my kid was born in the same week as yours."
The twins also revealed that they both want to marry Ben. Of course, it isn't currently legal in Australia for one person to marry two different people, so Ben would be committing a crime if he attempted to do this.
"If we can change the government we would love to marry Ben," they said in unison. "I think we should marry the same man. This is what works for us. People need to get that. We aren’t hurting us."
Anna and Lucy know their lifestyle isn't exactly 'the norm', but they had some strong words for critics who disagreed with their way of life.
"We know there's a lot of people out there thinking "what the f***" but at the end of the day, it's our bodies, it's our life," they said.
"You've just got to respect our choices. We want to have babies with the same man and we want to get married with the same man. That's the way we want to live our life. We're so happy that we found a guy that we love and he just cherishes us and loves us for who we are.
"This relationship is beautiful. Ben has spoken to us about kids and he's so good with kids. We think he'll be an amazing father."
If they do eventually fulfill their wish of both having children with ben, their kids would be biological siblings, but legally half-siblings and cousins.
