Identical twins who share everything including a bed and their boyfriend, have vowed they will try and fall pregnant together as well.
Anna and Lucy DeCinque, 30, from Perth, have spent nearly $250,000 on cosmetic enhancements to look more alike – including lip fillers, breast implants, and fake eyebrows and eyelashes.
The pair 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,’ news.com.au reported.
‘We would have to be exactly the same — even if we went through IVF at the same time,’ they said.
Although Lucy and Anna are not ready to fall pregnant yet, they said they ‘love children and kids love them.’
The twins will appeared on SBS’s Insight program on Tuesday to discuss how identical twins change and 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.
‘If she walks a few metres, I need to walk a few metres because we have to burn the same calories,’ Lucy told the program.
‘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.
From an early age Anna and Lucy were inseparable. The sisters went to the same nursery, primary and secondary schools, before enrolling on a beauty course at college together.
They undertake an extensive joint beauty regime to maintain their appearances. Once a week, Anna and Lucy take advantage of 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 pair started their own Youtube channel last year and used their videos to explain how they ‘feel each other pain and know when each other is sick.’
The duo met Mr Byrne 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 in July 2014.
‘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.’
Lucy said the question they got the most was: ‘How does one guy keep up with two girls in the bedroom?’
‘Put it this way, we’re very active girls and he needs twice the energy,’ she said.
The three share a ‘super king-sized bed’.
