Krista and Tatiana Hogan have been a curiosity since the day they came into the world joined at the head, drawing sneers from people who say they should never have been born. Now, the conjoined twin girls, who are a medical marvel because their brain stems are fused at the top unlike any other twins, are set to celebrate their second birthday in their hometown of Vernon, B.C. | CP

NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. - Canada's conjoined twins, Tatiana and Krista Hogan, and their parents were guests on Anderson Cooper's new daytime television talk show.

The Vernon, B.C., girls who are joined at the head will be five next month.

Their mother, Felicia Simms, told Cooper that even though the girl's are joined, they are very different people.

She says Tatiana is very loving and wants plenty of hugs and kisses, while Krista is more of a diva, who knows what she wants and when she wants it.

Simms says some parents have a negative reaction to the girls and have even stopped their children from playing with the twins, but most children don't have any problem interacting with the conjoined pair.

Doctors have said surgery to separate the girls wouldn't be safe because they share a critical part of their brain. (CKIZ)
