- Stephanie Buckman and Sammie Nowakowski, both 30, are identical twins
- The Florida-based siblings are both practicing aesthetic physician assistants
- They hired builders to create their houses right next door to each other
Identical twin sisters have revealed how they live the ‘exact same life’, every day – from having similar houses next door to each other, meeting their husbands on the same day and getting pregnant at the same time.
And they admit their partners sometimes struggle to tell the identical twins apart.
Stephanie Buckman and Sammie Nowakowski, 30, are practically clones of each other – but not just in a physical sense.
The tight-knit duo also have very similar lives, having been inseparable since birth and now both working as aesthetic physician assistants and even living right next door to one another on the same street in Jacksonville, Florida.
Stephanie and Sammie also share their lives on Instagram, where they have 96,100 followers and over tens of millions of views on their videos.
‘We have always been best friends and are extremely close,’ Stephanie said.
‘We live on the same street and are currently building our own homes… amazingly our builder found two lots right next to each other and we knew it was meant to be!
‘We are also both physician assistants and work together at the same medical spa.’
The pair are also equally lucky in love, with fate seeing them meet their ‘similar’ husbands on the same day.
‘We met our husbands on the same day on a medical mission trip,’ Stephanie shared.
‘They’re really similar; both love working out, playing tennis and board games!
‘Our voices are also very similar – our husbands cannot always tell us apart because we sound the same.
‘We also went to college together and were roommates.
‘We both have Golden Retrievers who are brothers from the same litter.
‘We were pregnant at the same time and had our babies three weeks apart.
‘We also have the same car and share clothes.’
The sisters say all of their similarities are organic, they just happen to be identical in their lives as well as looks.
‘We are family-orientated but also career-driven,’ she explained.
‘We are home bodies at heart and love spending time with our families, cooking and eating dinners together, spending time outside, working out, being active and healthy!
‘And if either of us decide to have more children, we hope to have them at the same time again.
‘Most people think it’s amazing we are so close and we have a built-in best friend to do every stage of life with.
‘Our friends and family are really happy for us.
‘Of course there are some people out there who do not understand why we want to be so similar, and we know it can definitely be hard to understand especially if you don’t have a twin.
‘People are mostly very supportive and sweet. They love our story.’
The sisters regularly share videos on social media, including funny pranks, details about their husbands and day-to-day activities.
In one clip, Stephanie and Sammie can be seen standing next to each other outside, in their work outfits, facing the camera.
They then ask their husbands to come out and guess who is who.
Both husbands get it right – so the sisters then tie up their hair, swap positions, and stand differently, before asking again.
The husbands then come out and guess – and miraculously, get it right again.
The post has so far gathered 11.8 million views, as well as 755,900 likes and thousands of comments from fans.
