All about Identical Twins!

Born an identical twin. There were two sets of identical twins in my family, and we were the younger set.

What are Identical Twins?

Identical twins develop from a single egg/sperm combination that splits a few days after conception. Their DNA originates from a single source, thus their genetic makeup is the same and the characteristics that are determined by genetics will be similar. Identical (Monozygotic) twins are always of the same gender.
