These identical twins want to get pregnant at the same time!


This pair of twins have taken being identical to the next level – vowing they will get pregnant at the same time in order to maintain their similar appearance.

Anna and Lucy DeCinque appeared on an Australian TV show to talk about their obsession with being the same.

The 30-year-olds from Perth have both been dating electrical mechanic Ben Byrne, 32, for four years and have claimed they must have children together as their “bodies need to be the same”.

The two share a bed as well as a boyfriend and also have identical sets of clothes.


“We would have to be exactly the same — even if we went through IVF at the same time,” they said of their pregnancy plans.

Although the twins are not ready to fall pregnant yet, they said they “love children and kids love them.”

The two appeared on Australian TV channel SBS, on a show about identical twins, to talk about how twins develop as they get older.

According to the program, identical twins share 99.9 per cent of the same DNA and their intellect, sexuality and health can show genetic versus environmental factors.

Lucy DeCinque told the program, Insight: “If she walks a few metres, I need to walk a few metres because we have to burn the same calories.

“Our diet is identical. Our food has to be identical. The same glass of water we measure. The same size of chip packets we have to measure.”

The pair said they feel as if they ‘don’t exist’ if their sibling is not with them.


They said they have been inseparable from an early age, going to nursery, school and college together.

Anna and Lucy DeCinque undertake an extensive weekly beauty regime together in order to maintain their identical looks.

They use infra-red saunas, microdermabrasion and skin peels to maintain the mirror image. They also follow the same exercise routine and keep an identical diet.

The two started a YouTube channel to talk about their life.

Their boyfriend discussed what it was like to date a pair of twins in 2014.

Mr Byrne met them after he added them on Facebook on the suggestion of mutual friends.

“It’s my first time with two girlfriends, and to be honest it’s very difficult because it has to be 100 per cent even,” Mr Byrne told Woman’s Day.

“Whatever I do for one I have to do for the other, so it’s a fine balance. My mates reckon it’s a cool problem to have.”
