It’s hard to speak about Vanessa and Veronica Merrell separately. The girls are almost identical. Still, there are some different things they can boast about. So, let’s focus on them.
Vanessa is 45 minutes younger than her sister. Veronica was born naturally, while Vanessa got an opportunity to make her first breath through a Cesar section. The reason was the umbilical cord, which wrapped over her neck. That’s why it was hard for Vanessa to start breathing and she has weak lungs till now.
Unlike Veronica, who found her sweetheart several years ago, Vanessa was single for a long time. In 2021 she finally announced, that she fell in love and started a relationship with John Vaughn, a member of the band “PUBLIC”.
Although Veronica and Vanessa very often star in various screen projects as a duo, sometimes they participate in the shows and films separately. Vanessa appeared in the film “Switched”, the body swap story, as Olivia, without her sister by her side. That was very awkward for her.
