On July 7, 2010, twins Ava and Leah were born in the family of Jackie and Kevin Clements. Soon after birth, relatives and even outsiders began to pay attention to the external data of the girls. Many people thought that the girls were going to have a successful modeling career, but mom didn’t even want to think about it.
But after a while, she herself noticed that her daughters have model data. Therefore, she enrolled her six-month-old daughters in a modeling agency in California. This attempt did not bear fruit, as over time the parents realized that their daughter should grow up with peers and socialize, and not work from the very cradle.
At the age of 7, Jaki invited her daughters to try themselves as models. The girls enthusiastically accepted this offer. Fortunately, a friend of Jackie’s just at that moment needed small models to advertise a boutique. That’s how Ava and Leah’s career began.
Over time, the girls drew the attention of scouts, one of them offered to cooperate with the Barbie brand. After that, the family was literally showered with offers of cooperation. Now 10-year-old girls work with LA Models. They managed to shoot for advertising brands such as Nike, Disney, Mattel and Target, and also took part in several shows of Levi’s and Converse brands.
Parents make sure that modeling does not interfere with their daughters’ education and hobbies. Girls go to school, go swimming and dancing, and also communicate with friends. And only in their free time from these classes, they work as models. Jaki maintains an Instagram page where she posts photos of her daughters. Now about 1.7 million followers have subscribed to it.
Their father Kevin was diagnosed with cancer last year. The little ones turned to their subscribers with a request for help, as their father urgently needed a donor. The disease was defeated, but Kevin’s immunity is weakened, so he sees his daughters only in the hospital, where he has to stay because of the epidemic of the virus.
For the same reason, Ava and Leah do not go to school, but they will participate in photo shoots several more times before the end of the month.
