Ex-wife of Army veteran who married twins admits his child may not be his

The husband of conjoined twin Abby Hensel was reportedly hit with a paternity lawsuit by his ex-wife, creating drama in the wake of the news about his marriage to one-half of the conjoined twin duo.

Josh Bowling, a US Army veteran and nurse, recently entered the tabloids after marrying Abby Hensel, who shares a body with her sister, Brittany.

While the marriage took place in 2021, it has only recently made headlines, presumably due to the twins staying out of the spotlight since their TV show on TLC.

As interest has grown in the trio, news broke of a paternity lawsuit that was filed by Josh’s ex-wife, Annica Bowling, in October 2023— nearly two years after he married Abby.

The divorced couple currently share custody of their 8-year-old daughter, Isabella.

The two were divorced on April 23, 2020, but Annica had another child later that year who was referred to as “Isabella’s half-sister” in court documents.

According to the Daily Mail, it isn’t known which child the paternity is being tested for, but a DNA test was filed in court records on March 7th.

A third party, Gavin Vatnsdal, was also named in the suit.

The details of that test, however, are not available to the public.

While Josh is a hospice nurse, Abby and Brittany are now both fifth grade math teachers at an elementary school in Minnesota.

The unusual nature of the conjoined twins means that while Josh and Abby are legally married, Brittany is along for the ride— to include if Abby and Josh decide they want to have children.
