This is the heartwarming moment two twins separated at birth were reunited for the first time on live TV.

Much of the Good Morning America audience were reduced to tears after Audrey Doering, from Wisconsin, and Gracie Rainsberry, from Washington state,were introduced to each other.

The ten-year-old twins were born in China and both adopted by different families in the United States.

It’s very overwhelming,” Gracie said after meeting her twin sister.

“It felt like there was somebody missing … Now it’s complete,” said Audrey. “I thought my parents, were, like, playing a joke on me.” 

Audrey’s mother Jennifer Doering set the wheels in motion for the reunion after discovering an old photo of the pair with the help of a Chinese researcher.

She found out they were twins and eventually tracked down Gracie’s mother Nicole Rainsberry on Facebook.

Ms Doering told ABC News it’s “the craziest thing in the whole wide world to look at your child exactly”.

She added: “I mean, everything was the same. The same hair, the same glasses, the same outfits.

“As soon as I had that picture, I was desperate to find out … who that other child was.”

“I mean this stuff you read about. And how could it really be that there are two of them?”

Ms Rainsberry added: “It’s hard to process that information. It was crazy to be looking at what looked like Gracie, but knowing that it wasn’t Gracie.”
