Two headed baby born in Brazil

Brazil has witness a rare case of a healthy two-headed baby this week  and doctors say the two-headed baby is actually a set of conjoined twins who had to share one body due to a rare birth defect. 

The twins, born on Monday and named Jesus and Emanuel in honour of the upcoming Christmas holiday, have distinct brains and spinal cords but share internal organs, appearing as a single baby with two heads. 

The hospital said the 23-year-old mother only learned that she was pregnant with twins at the time of the delivery, when an ultrasound was performed.
