Abby & Brittany: Naviating through life on TLC

TLC’s eight-episode series Abby & Brittany filmed then-22-year-old Abby and Brittany Hensel as they progressed into true adulthood. The show highlighted milestone events such as the twins’ graduation from Bethel University in Minnesota with teaching degrees, taking a trip to Europe, and seeking out their first jobs. In essence, they try to live normal lives, but no matter where they go, they still receive open stares. However, the girls have long since learned to deal with the unwanted attention and have long since let go of the idea of a completely normal life. Still, we see them having fun with friends, spending time with their loving and supportive parents, and even driving a car with ease. During one interview in the series, the two stated they hope to get married and have a family one day, and doctors have deemed their reproductive organs to be healthy enough to make that dream a reality.
