Jaqi Clements knew that with three small children, she’d have to be more creative about her work hours when they were born. But even in the midst of balancing being a mom and wife, Jaqi never thought their family would become world-famous seven years later for something completely unexpected…
The beautiful twin sisters Ava and Leah Clements turned seven on July 7th, 2017. These lovely girls love doing fun things like swimming and dancing, but their beauty has been praised since they were babies so when they turned seven, the twins started a journey that is currently taking over social media with people across the globe calling them “the most beautiful twins in the world.”
Jaqi and her husband, a typical couple living in Orange County, California had their first baby boy Chase. In 2009 the good news came they were having two new babies at once! They prepared for twin girls but never realized how much these little ladies would change them.
Ava Marie and Leah Rose came into the world four weeks early on July 7, 2010. Their mom Jaqi described their personalities as showing up “unannounced” when she wrote about them in her blog after they were born. The babies were healthy so the couple had to adjust to having two baby girls instead of just one like originally planned for but soon found out that these little sisters are extraordinary.
When the girls were 6 months old, Jaqi took them to an LA modeling agency. But it was too much for her with a 2-year-old son and two twin daughters so she gave up on the idea three months later.
At seven years of age, the twins had very different personalities and also loved to be in front of an audience. As Jaqi said, “They loved performing their dance routines for any kind of audience-neighbors, friends or strangers… it didn’t matter.” So now that they were older she was looking at modeling again, and she soon got the sign she was looking for.
Leah and Ava just turned seven years old. she’s always been a huge believer in signs, so when the twins’ birthday fell on 7/7/17, She had the feeling that it was going to be an exciting year for them! her blog post said: “Aside from the fact that I’m a huge believer in luck and have been told by almost everyone that 7 is lucky number…I had a feeling [the girls] were going to make some big changes.” But first, she wanted to make sure that the twins were interested in the idea.
Jaqi presented her idea to the girls. They were enthusiastic about it and decided to give modeling a try, but they needed headshots for their portfolio before walking into an agency. Luckily opportunity knocked.
Jaqi’s neighbor started a kid’s pop-up boutique from her garage and needed children to model clothes. Jaqi found her old Nikon camera, gave the girls a hair and makeup makeover, then got enough photos for their portfolio. Now she was trying to find agencies with interest in kids’ fashion models.
Jaqi kept the modeling contacts that she had when her twins were babies. She hoped to hear back from some of them and was surprised by how many expressed interest in working with her daughters again. After signing both girls on with a couple of agencies, Jaqi did something even more fantastic to upped her daughters’ fame status even higher.
Jaqi created an Instagram account for her twins and uploaded their photoshoot pictures. By September of that year, they had only 1000 followers. But on social media things take time to grow – six months later the girls ended up with 290,000 followers!
With their natural talent and love for the camera, Ava and Leah quickly became well-known models who were sought after by dozens of magazines. They started out doing just a few photoshoots per week but soon found themselves working seven days in a row. Due to their success, their mother Jaqi manages this career path as it has become her family’s business.
As a family of naturally beautiful people, Chase has joined the same modeling agencies as his siblings and sometimes they all participate in photo shoots together. Though it seems like this should be easy for them, there have been some snags along the way to mastering their career choice.
Jaqi’s daughters were signed with two modeling agencies, one in Orange County and the other located in Los Angeles. This gave them different opportunities to model; however Jaqi had to make sure that both of their clients would be okay with this scenario before continuing on.
Jaqi was very honest with both modeling agencies and they told her there would be no problems. Then she got called back for a Barbie audition, but the other agency has already taken them to an audition. She decided to call because if that happened it could have led to canceling of contracts from two different agencies so she needs help in resolving this conflict between these companies. After Jaqi was upfront about the whole thing, both modeling agencies realized she hadn’t intended to cheat anyone. The twins were still represented by them and they continued their work. This stressful moment had taught her something new in the world of modeling which would be beneficial for everyone involved – especially her twin daughters!
Ever since Ava and Leah were dubbed the world’s most beautiful twins, they’ve grown up a bit. Although their appearance has also grown along with them, they’re still certainly as pretty as ever. Let’s take a look at their journey to becoming the world’s most beautiful twins and what they’re up to today.
At just a few months old, Ava Marie and Leah Rose Clements were already drawing the attention of strangers. One woman even approached their mother to comment on how pretty they were. That is when she decided that her girls might have modeling potential and should look into it further as soon as possible.
When Jaqi’s son and the girls’ older brother, Chase Clements, was hitting the dreaded toddler years of life during this time period in her hectic mom schedule. This caused a bit of sidetracking for Jaqi who had wanted to pursue modeling options with Ava and Leah. Eventually, things calmed down enough that she could explore designing potential opportunities when every single agency approached both sisters asking them if they would like to sign up as models on their roster!
When the twins turned 7 years old, Aqi first created an Instagram page to show off her daughters’ beauty. Now with over 1.8 million followers and growing every day, this social media account is run by their parents Kevin Clements and Jaqi Clements-Clegg; it offers a glimpse into what projects they’re currently working on as well as any trips they’ve taken together. The entire family also features frequently on their Instagram page showing just how close everyone in the household really is!
On the days that Ava and Leah have to work, their mother drives them two hours to Los Angeles from Orange County. Jaqi says she’ll often take her daughters out for lunch or dinner so they can spend time together on these busy days. Even though child models may seem like all fun and games, there’s still a lot of responsibility involved which is why everyone needs balance in their life!
As they are no longer the young children that began modeling, soon enough they will be entering teenagehood. However, one thing has remained the same — how pretty and talented these girls continue to be! Now named as “most beautiful twins” years after having a successful career in modeling we’re sure there’s so much more of this beauty ahead for them.
