THESE two tots may still be swaddled in hospital bandages — but they’re getting a fresh chance at a normal life.

In the first pictures released after their separation, formerly-conjoined twins Anias and Jadon McDonald stared at each in the recovery room of Montefiore Medical Centre in The Bronx.

“It’s the most amazing thing. I just can’t even believe it,” their mother, Nicole McDonald, told CNN about the operation last month to split them from where they were joined at the skull.

“And look at his little hair. On top, it’s growing in!”

The New York Post reports that the 14-month-old boys are moving to rehab to recover from the craniopagus surgery that separated them.

“How does it feel to be your own little boy?” the father, Christian McDonald, said to his son Jadon, after the 27-hour operation.

You sure are handsome. Look at you. You look like a perfect little boy.”

Lead surgeon Dr. James Goodrich told the network that their recovery has been the fastest he has seen from this procedure.

“Since the day they were born, these boys have had every test under the sun,” she wrote.

“They’ve been poked and prodded more than I could have ever imagined, and the worst part is that I can’t even hold them when they cry. Instead, I press my cheek against theirs and whisper in their ears that it’s going to be OK.”

After exhaustive research, the family finally consulted a doctor at the Bronx hospital and the boys underwent a series of surgeries that would enable them to separate while maintaining the appropriate blood flow to their brains.

The boys still have more surgeries to go but can survive fine by wearing a helmet before doctors fashion a new skullcap out of other bone.

Mum and Dad are ecstatic that their long journey has reached a safe and comforting phase.

“When this all began, back in that dark ultrasound room, I knew we were in for a battle, but I also knew that with God anything is possible,” the family wrote.
