For identical twins Maria Pignaton Pontin and Paulina Pignaton Pandolfi, May 24 is a truly momentous occasion. The women will celebrate their 100th birthday – a century of companionship, love and sisterhood.
Both women are proud mothers and grandmothers. Paulina has six children, 19 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren, while Maria has five children, 12 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
The twins are from Brazil.
To mark their birthday the pair took part in the fun shoot in the city of Vitória, Brazil, where they’re already local celebrities.
