Sup Travellers?! Donnie and Ronnie Galyon turned 62 years, eight months, and seven days old on Saturday, meaning that they have outlived the original Siamese twins, Chang and Eng Bunker.

The Ohio born Gaylon Twins are joined from the breastbone to the pelvis.  

"It’s what me and Donnie’s always dreamed about, and we hope to get the ring, because we’ve dreamed about getting this since we were kids," says Ronnie. "Put it this way, I'm stoked."

"I had promised 'You get there, we're going to have a really big bash,'" younger brother Jim Galyon told ABC News. "We've had a lot of friends and family coming in from five different states and local neighbors." 

Donnie and Ronnie live with Jim and his wife inside a specially constructed addition to their home that lets them provide 24/7 care for the twins.

The Gaylons still have some work to do to become the oldest conjoined twins in recorded history. They have to hit 63 on their birthday this October to become the oldest conjoined twins to ever grace the planet. According to Guinness, Italian twins Giacomo and Giovanni Battista Tocci currently hold that record.

Congrats to the Gaylon twins and I hope that they live to become the oldest conjoined twins in history. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
