Leah Rose and Ava Marie Clements are seven-year-old identical twins.
Still, they’re also making headlines for the way they look.
“For as long as I can remember strangers would approach me when we were out asking first if they were twins,” their mother, Jaqi, wrote in a blog post. “Their follow up would always be… ‘Wow they are so beautiful, you should really think about getting them into modeling.'”
Excited about the prospect of her daughters becoming mini models, Jaqi signed them to an agency when they were just six months old.
However, life became too hectic, especially since she was already raising a two-year-old son.
She ultimately decided to cancel their contracts because it just wasn’t the right time, and they were still too young to be in front of the camera.
It took a few years for Jaqi to reconsider her decision, but when Leah and Ava turned seven on July 7, 2017, she took it as a sign and created an Instagram page for them.
“Aside from the fact that I’m a huge believer in signs and have been told by almost everyone that 7 is a lucky number, I just had a feeling that this year was going to be a fun and exciting year for them,” she said.
Little did the Clements know that the photo would change their lives forever.
