Two women who serendipitously crossed paths on TikTok believe that they are long-lost twins.
According to Newsweek, the women confronted their families about the revelation after they found each other online and learned that they both had, in fact, been adopted as infants from Gongyi. They still haven’t taken a DNA test to confirm their blood relation, but they share a birthday, blood type and birthmark, and it’s hard to deny how similar the two girls look.
Keke explained to Henan Television that she contacted Li on Douyin (the Chinese version of TikTok) and urged her to ask her parents “how many daughters they have.” She eventually convinced Li to talk by sending her a selfie, which proved how eerily similar the two women look.
“When we had our first video call, it was like I was talking to myself,” Keke told Henan Television. “It was like looking in a mirror.”
In February, Keke traveled to Dengfeng to meet Li. After meeting in person, both felt almost certain that they were “twin sisters,” though they have yet to take a DNA test.
“Ms. Zhang and I plan to have a DNA test, but first we want permission from our families,” Keke told Henan Television. “If one of our parents [doesn’t] support our decision, then we won’t go ahead. We don’t want to hurt them.”
Keke and Li’s story has grabbed the attention of several news outlets in China, which has led to many rumors surrounding their families and origins. One thing they want to make very clear is that no matter what happens, both women fully intend on remaining close to their adopted parents.
