In just 19 days, they stole Australia’s heart.

The girls, Hope and Faith, were conjoined at birth.

They shared a body but two separate faces and separate brains, Mail Online reported.

On Tuesday, Australia Channel 9’s  A Current Affair revealed on its Twitter account that they have died. 

“We are blessed we’ve got this far. I just find them adorable,” the girls’ mother, Renee Young, earlier told Australian magazine Woman’s Day.

The girls survived a miraculous birth on May 8 and were christened on the same day.

Rare condition

They were born with the extremely rare condition known as disrosopus — which leads to a baby with two faces. 

Less than 40 people in history are believed to have suffered from the condition.
