Living as One The life expectancy for conjoined twins who are unable to be separated strongly depends on what organs they share. Conjoined twins that share a heart for example have a low survival rate. Ronnie and Donnie Gaylon are currently the world’s oldest living conjoined twins at 61 years old. They have separate stomachs, lungs, and hearts, but share one large intestine and a single set of male reproductive organs. Their longevity is a medical miracle by itself

Ronnie and Donnie Galyon (born October 28, 1951) are two American conjoined twins, who hold the current record for the oldest living conjoined twins. With nine children to support, their father, Wesley, made the decision to take the twins on the road as a sideshow attraction. The boys were exhibited in sideshows throughout their childhood in the U.S. and later in Latin America. (Pictured here from late 1950's or early 1960's)
