The siblings at next to each other in the clip where the captions explained everything, it read: “We were conceived in 1996, I was implanted first, JJ was frozen for three years.”
It turns out, one sister was born in 1996 since she was implanted straight away, but the other wasn’t born until 2000, which they said makes them sort of the same age, but not really.
“My parents still of out twins frozen 25 years later,” Michel said.
Adding, “So if we wanted we could use the embryos and birth our own twins.”

Michel said: “Ok, I know this isn’t really twins, but we were conceived at the same time, same batch of eggs, still pretty cool.”
According to Medical News Today, a lot of families go down this route, so it’s not as uncommon as you might think.
They said: “Embryo freezing is a procedure that allows people to store embryos for later use.
“A person can also freeze eggs, which are not fertilized. An embryo forms after fertilization and after the cells start to divide.”
