Twins dating twins
Today, at 27, they still have much more in common than blond hair and similar features.
For one thing, they share not only a birthday, but also an anniversary. The two couples -- Mandy and husband Kris Westerman, 26, and Brandy and husband Daniel Laman, 27 -- followed up the wedding with a joint honeymoon in Jamaica.
And then a few months ago, the couples bought their first homes, closing, of course, on the same day.
The houses, just down the street from one another, share the same floor plan, only in reverse.
The vaulted-ceiling living rooms in their new Cordova homes even contain identical beige sectional sofas, side chairs and TV stands.
The twins didn't set out to match, but they've found over the years that it's simply hard not to.
People were confused how a Chinese couple managed to run a busy restaurant 21 hours a day without getting tired. However, a journalist from Today Morning Post interviewed the restaurant owner and found out the truth.
Identical twins Mandy Westerman and Brandy Laman fit several of the classic twin stereotypes.
They were so hard to tell apart as babies that their parents first painted their toenails different colors, then had their ears pierced at 2 months old, putting tiny hearts in one twin's earlobes and stars in the other's.
The two couples, from Binhai town, look so much alike that members of their own family struggle to tell them apart.
One brother, Yang Kang, 23, met and fell in love with one of the sisters, Zhang Lanxiang, at work in Wuxi.
