Is being a twin all it's cracked up to be? We consulted a few 'experts'

What does it mean to be a twin?

This Monday on TODAY, as part of our Summer of Secrets kick-off, we asked: What does it mean to be a twin?

We consulted a few experts of all ages to learn more about the deep bond shared by twins, and heard all about the upsides and downsides in the process.

"I like cherry," one twin told TODAY.

"I like cherry, too," said her other half.

And as if that wasn't hardhitting enough, things got even more philosophical with the older set.

One pair discussed their significant others' reactions to their twinship: "It was very difficult, because our wives saw themselves as second fiddle."

We also consulted Jenna Bush Hager and her sister, Barbara Bush, who may not look like twins (they're fraternal), but who have become close "in a way that very few can understand."

The wombmates, born one minute apart, shared their favorite aspects of being twins. "She's seen the best of me and the worst of me and she's been there for every single moment," Jenna said of her sister.

And, of course, they shared a few cons, too. "That one minute was short, but you like to use it a lot, don't you?" Barbara laughed.
