  • The world’s oldest conjoined twins have died.  
  • Their names were Ronnie and Donnie Galyon. 
  • They were 68 years old. 

 

Ronnie and Donnie Galyon, the world’s oldest conjoined twins have died. They were 68 years old and presumably died of natural causes. Conjoined twins are very rare. It is even rarer that conjoined twins would live past birth, or live well into their 60s. They truly defied the odds!

Ronnie and Donnie are from Ohio. They were born on October 25, 1951, and were joined together at the abdomen. It was too dangerous to separate them, due to where they were conjoined. So, they lived their lives together. That doesn’t mean they were exactly alike!

Ronnie and Donnie Galyon, Galyon Siamese Twins. Born in 1951 in Dayton, Ohio. The Galyon twins spent the first two years of their lives in the hospital while their parents and doctors weighed the risks for separating them. Their parents eventually decided against it and, despite being offered separation procedures numerous times throughout their lives, Ronnie and Donnie agreed with the decision their parents made and never took anyone up on it. They began exhibiting at age 4 and went on to appear at various single-o shows in the U.S. and then tour South and Central America, including with Circo Unión. They retired to Dayton, Ohio in 1991 and appeared on Jerry Springer in 1997. Ronnie and Donnie also hold the record for the longest living conjoined twins and are still alive today.

Reportedly, they had very different personalities and even different political views. When they were young, they started working in circuses and at carnivals. The twins performed for 36 years as the “Galyon Siamese Twins” until they retired in 1991.

After they retired, they moved in with their brother and his wife. Soon they began experiencing health complications. Over 200 volunteers worked together to help update the home so they could live safely and comfortably there. They also received a custom wheelchair.

Kate Hudson’s Rare Photo Of First Son Ryder Has Fans Reeling At The Resemblance

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Social media allows celebrities to share all sorts of photos featuring themselves and family. But others lean into privacy a bit more, making any candid family photos real treasures. Recently, Kate Hudson shared a photo of her oldest son, Ryder Russell Robinson. Fans loved the warm look into their home life, but they also loved something else.

Followers on Instagram noted a striking resemblance between Ryder and his mother. Others still felt absolutely floored at how much he has grown. For them, 2004 feels like just yesterday. Yet this year marks 16 years of living his best life for Ryder.

He still likes a hang with his mama…so that’s good ❤️ @mr.ryderrobinson

A post shared by Kate Hudson (@katehudson) on Jul 7, 2020 at 1:55pm PDT

On July 8, Kate Hudson shared a candid photo of her oldest son Ryder. Ryder is the son of Kate and The Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson. The couple married on December 31, 2000, and four years later, in January 2004, they gave birth to their first son. 16 years later, Kate’s followers can’t believe the passage of time.

When Derek Blasberg asked, “Who is this adult male?” another user named Barbara replied, “same thought!!!! Wow where has time gone by!!!!” David Babaii voiced what everyone was thinking, seeing the sentimental shot, by writing, “I can’t get over how fast you have grown and what an amazing man you are becoming.”

Life is just full of learning opportunities for everyone

Viewers also noted a certain resemblance between Kate Hudson and son Ryder Robinson. Hello Magazine points out how users commented, “He looks just like you,” “Looks like his mama,” and so on. Despite any resemblances, though, raising Ryder was a big learning experience for Kate, who was relatively young when he was born. She described the situation as “unusual” because “I was really young, like, 23, when I had Ryder. So, our relationship has always been [a little unusual]. I mean, we’re close, and I am his mum. I’m big on manners. I’m big on politeness. I’m big on gratitude. But I’m a bit of a wild mum.”

Kate captioned her photo of Ryder Robinson, “He still likes a hang with his mama…so that’s good.” But, again, her own feelings ended up a bit “unusual” because of her evolving feelings as a mom. She elaborated, “Some days I feel like I should win best mom of the day award, and some days I find myself doing strange things that don’t have any real purpose, in faraway corners in my house, and I realise I am literally and deliberately hiding from my children.” At the end of the day, though, traveling for work causes her a “tight, pulling sensation that never goes away that it comes at the cost of missing a week of my children’s lives, and it aches.”

ABC is hoping to premiere the reboot during the 2021-2022 television season. Of course, the coronavirus pandemic will play a role as many shows are still not able to film. The original series focused on a middle-class family in the ’60s. The reboot will focus on a Black middle-class family in the ’60s, in Montgomery, Alabama.

Willie Nelson Reveals That Kenny Rogers Originally Wanted Him To Record This Hit Song

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Willie Nelson and Kenny Rogers often collaborated together, but many fans wouldn’t know this surprising fact. He originally wanted Nelson to record “The Gambler.” Can you think of anyone besides Rogers who could sing this hit song? Nelson actually went on the Today show to talk about how he almost ended up recording and singing the song.

“Through the years, him and I were big pals,” he tells Jenna Bush-Hager. “In fact, he tried to get me to record ‘The Gambler.’ We were somewhere, I don’t know, and he was like, ‘I’ve got this song, I think you should do it,’ and he played it for me and I said, ‘You know, I think it’s a great song, but I don’t think I’ll do it,’ because, I was doing, every night, a song called ‘Red Headed Stranger’ which has 100 verses in it.”

Would what it sound like if Willie Nelson had recorded “The Gambler” instead of Kenny Rogers?

Nelson continues, “I said ‘I just don’t want to do another long song,’ so he said, ‘OK, I will record it myself,’ and so he did and, you know, there it is.” The song has since become synonymous with the late Rogers’ career as it earned him a No. 1 spot on the charts in 1978. It would also earn him a Grammy Award for best country vocal performance the next year.

Nelson was also asked if he regrets turning down this recognizable song. Safe to say, Nelson doesn’t regret it at all, saying “that was Kenny’s song all the way.” Mr. Nelson is also doing pretty well in the music industry, as at 87 years old, he just released a new album called First Rose of Spring.
