The world’s oldest identical twins, born December 24, 1909, celebrated their 103 birthday. Charlotte Eisgrou and Ann Primack of Florida are in good health, despite their age and being born premature.
In fact, neither of the twins use a hearing aid or reading glasses.
“I don’t know the secret to a long life.” Eisgrou said. “And I wouldn’t tell you if I knew it,” she added.
Eisgrou and Primack were born in Chicago, two months premature; between the two of them, they weighted 7 lbs.
Since they were born before incubators were invented, they were wrapped in blankets and put in the door of a stove to keep warm, reported the Daily Mail.
“I feel wonderful. I have all my faculties,” Eisgrou told the Daytona Beach News-Journal.
Due to recent falls by both women, they were unable to spend their Birthday’s together, but they remain very close to each other.
“We love each other, and we always will,” Primack told ABC.
Both twins are amazed by how long they have lived.
“I can’t believe it, that I’ve reached that age. The good thing is our minds are sharp. That’s the only good thing,” Primack told ABC.
