Identical twins Leah Rose and Ava Marie were born in California on July 7, 2010. It wasn’t long before their mom, Jaqi, was inundated with comments about the girls’ natural beauty.
Jaqi originally signed the girls to a modeling agency when they were 6 months old, but she ultimately decided it wasn’t the right time. With a 2-year-old son and a set of twins, life was simply too hectic.
But when Leah and Ava turned seven on July 7, 2017 (7/7/17), Jaqi took it as a sign. She posted the first photo of the girls on Instagram and had no idea their profile would go viral.
The Clements twins became Instagram stars overnight, and modeling agencies began clamoring for the chance to sign them…
Jaqi Clements and her husband were so excited to start a family.
Two years after the birth of their son, Jaqi learned she was pregnant again. This time, with identical twin girls.
Ava Marie and Leah Rose were born four and a half weeks early, on July 7, 2010.
“Knowing their personalities now it makes total sense that they would show up early, unannounced, and ready to take on anything,” Jaqi wrote on her blog.
“For as long as I can remember strangers would approach me when we were out asking first if they were twins,” she wrote.
“Their follow up would always be… ‘Wow they are so beautiful, you should really think about getting them into modeling.’”
