A Couple Gave Birth To Beautiful Twins, See Where They Are Now
When Jaqi and Kevin Clements found out they would have twin baby girls, they were excited and nervous. The couple decided to name the two girls Ava Marie and Leah Rose, who were born earlier than anticipated but came out healthy. One thing that was quite special about the twins is how strikingly similar they two looked since the day they were born. Another thing that stood out is that the two babies were just beautiful and looked like models from a magazine.
Jaqi and Kevin knew they had created two unique girls who would be the most famous twins in the world. Since people were always telling the family that they should get the girls into modeling, they gave in as they saw how beautiful their twins were together and knew everyone was interested in their looks. So if you want to learn more about the Clements twins, check out this article!
The Clements Twins Were Born
On July 7, 2010, Jaqi and Kevin Clements welcomed Ava Marie and Leah Rose to the world. The twins were born earlier than expected, which was a surprise for their parents, and came four and a half weeks early. The Clements were quite excited to start a new chapter in their lives and raise two beautiful girls.
Jaqi was quite puzzled that the twins arrived early, but as they grew older, she found out that it was their personality that made them come out early as they were bold and willing to take the world on. Jaqi and Kevin felt blessed that Ava Marie and Leah Rose were in their lives.
Clements Twins Looked Like Supermodels
Jaqi and Kevin knew that their twins were unique as they both looked strikingly similar and were beautiful from the start. Many of Clements' family members started noticing that the twins were not ordinary twins and urged Jaqi to start getting them into modeling.
Jaqi knew that the girls were destined to be models but were hesitant at first since the twins didn't even know how to speak, and she wanted to make sure that they actually wanted to be models. The Clements twins were full of natural beauty, and many people would comment on their exceptional looks.
The Clements Twins Started Modeling
The Clements twins started modeling when they were just six months old as everyone pressured Jaqi to start them early. This was a lot of work for Jaqi as Kevin was working a full-time job and didn't have time to help her out. Jaqi was also taking care of her 2-year-old son Chase during this time which brought more stress to her table.
The first attempt only lasted about three months as Jaqi felt that there was too much pressure on her shoulders and she decided to focus on raising her family before she got the twins into modeling.
Quality Family Time
Jaqi and Kevin thought that it was important to raise their kids right instead of living a stressful life. Jaqi was keen on raising her children right and was grateful that she pulled the twins out of modeling since it would have added stress to everyone in the family.
Jaqi knew that modeling for the twins was not out of the question but wanted to wait until the proper age for them to start taking modeling on again. The Clements family lived an everyday life and spent most of their time in Orange County, California.
Waiting For The Right Time
Jaqi knew that the girls were still interested in modeling but was waiting for the perfect time to ask if they really wanted to pursue modeling as a career. Jaqi felt that it was important that the twins were happy and not pressured into anything that they didn't like to do.
Jaqi wanted the twins to verbally answer if they wanted to be models, which was one of the reasons why she pulled them out of modeling at such an early age. As time passed, the twins became even more beautiful and looked more like models every day.
Thinking Of The Perfect Time
When the twins were about to turn seven years old, Jaqi felt that it was the right time to ask them if they wanted to take up modeling again. Since the twins were born on 7/7 and Jaqi's lucky number is seven, she believed that God was giving her a sign to let the girls make a decision on their own.
Since the twins' birthday was around the corner, she knew that she needed to ask them on this day as many of her signs in life have been good fortune. Jaqi knew that the twins were keen to start modeling again but wanted to hear it from their own mouths.
The Big Question
When the Clements twins' birthday finally arrived, Jaqi was excited to ask the girls if they wanted to start modeling again. When the big question was asked, the twins eagerly responded with a yes as they had been waiting for the question for some time.
Jaqi knew that it would be a perfect time as the twins had to grow into bright little girls that were up to any challenge. The twins were in several sports and extracurricular activities, making them stand out in school. The twins were ready to take on modeling, and they were just as excited as their mother was.
The Twins Were Not Shy
Ever since the Clements twins were a couple of years old, they were not afraid to perform in front of people. The twins had a plethora of talents that they were not afraid to perform in front of strangers, so they were destined to be models.
Now that the girls were older, Jaqi felt that the twins were able to handle a good amount of pressure and she was right. The Clements twins were extremely popular from the start as they had been on the radar of many agencies. It was just up to Jaqi to find a suitable agency that she liked.
Taking Things Slow
Jaqi felt that she needed to take things slow with the twins' modeling career and decided to start taking modeling pictures herself to get the girls more comfortable in front of the camera. Jaqi didn't want the girls to have tons of makeup on and fancy clothes so she decided to make things simple and photograph the twins in cute outfits together.
Jaqi ended up using an old Nikon camera that she had to start the twins' modeling career. She was grateful that she started out this way as it eased the girls into modeling, and they were not put under pressure by an agency.
Worked Some Things Out
Although the twins were not shy in front of the camera and were very beautiful, there were still a couple of things that they needed to work on to be the top models of their age. Jaqi stated that it was hard at first as it wasn't easy to keep the girls to stay still.
Eventually, the twins were able to learn what it takes to become a model and started to mature very quickly. Jaqi didn't put a lot of pressure on the girls as she knew that they were still just little girls that wanted to have fun, so she cut them a lot of slack.
Finding An Agency
Jaqi's next move was the find a modeling agency for the twins that was going to treat them right. Jaqi had previously worked with several agencies when the twins were modeling for the first time but she was quite worried that she wouldn't be able to find a suitable one.
Luckily, most of the agencies that she worked with in the past kept a close eye on the girls as they knew that it would only be a matter of time before the girls started modeling again. Jaqi had several agencies to pick from, and she decided to go with two agencies to represent her daughters.
The Twins' Personalities
Although the twins look identical, their personalities are quite different from each other. Jaqi admitted that it could be quite challenging to work with twins as they both think differently. Luckily Ava and Leah get along, which is a weight lifted off Jaqi's shoulders as it is one less thing she has to deal with.
The twins might have different personalities but have the same ambitions to be the best models in the world. The twins get most of their drive from their parents, who have always been hard-working. The twins are inseparable, and Jaqi is hoping that will last when they get older.
Since Jaqi decided to work with two modeling agencies to help expand the amount of work the twins would be getting, things didn't turn out the best for them. One of the agencies alerted Jaqi that the twins were scheduled for an audition that the twins had previously done the day before with another agency.
Jaqi had to reveal to both agencies that she was working with two agencies to represent her daughters. This wasn't too big of a deal, as the agencies didn't mind, but she was still worried as other models had gotten in trouble for doing the same thing in the past.
In July 2017, Jaqi decided to create an Instagram account for the twins, which she named @clementstwins. This was huge for the twins as they gained a significant amount of their popularity on the social media platform. Jaqi knew that Instagram would help the girls get their names out in public for agencies to see.
Within the first week, the twins' account already had 300,000 followers and grew significantly. Another thing that Jaqi noticed is that she was getting multiple offers from agencies as they saw the potential in the twins' modeling careers. This opened up another chapter in the twins' and Jaqi's life.
A Whole New Beginning
The Clements family became extremely popular after Jaqi decided to create an Instagram account, as the twins were the center of attention. Although the twins' Instagram page was quite popular, Jaqi had to learn a lot about running an Instagram account.
Jaqi had to go through a steep learning curve to gain followers on Instagram. One of her tips was that she never cheaped out on her Instagram photos and spent the time to get a great-looking photo. It didn't take long for Jaqi and the twins to start getting used to the social media life.
Best Year Of Their Lives
In Jaqi's eyes, the best year of the family's lives was 2017, as it was the time that the twins started modeling and their Instagram account started gaining a lot of followers. Jaqi knew that 2017 was going to be a good year as her lucky number had always been the number seven.
Not only were the twins doing well, but the whole family had a tremendous amount of luck that year. Jaqi and Kevin knew that their family's lives would be bright in the future as they had a lot going for them.
Chase Gets Into Modeling
Although Ava and Leah are the stars of the family, their brother Chase has also started a modeling career which has been pretty successful. Chase began modeling next to his twin sisters and eventually signed up with an agency as he had the same charisma as his sisters.
The talent runs in the family as Chase has become just as popular as his twin sisters. Chase also knows how to act and wants to pursue an acting career. Chase has already been in a couple of commercials, so his acting career is looking bright for the future.
Everyone Wanted To Work With The Twins
The Clements twins were becoming more popular each day, and that meant that they were offered several jobs every week. The twins were working up to six jobs a week, plus they were in school and still doing extracurricular activities.
Although the twins had a lot on their plate, they were still up for more work and really enjoyed the time when they were modeling. Jaqi knew that being models was what the girls were destined to be as not many girls their age were up to the challenge. It didn't take long for the girls to become professional models.
Highs And Lows Of Modeling
When Jaqi first got her daughters into modeling, she was entirely new to the industry and didn't know much about the ins and outs of the business. Jaqi has learned a lot since the start and advises anyone that is just starting their modeling career to learn from her mistakes.
Luckily, Ava and Leah don't really have to deal with the lows as their mother is there to take care of that side. Jaqi has stated that you better know who you are dealing with before you start taking advice from them. Jaqi also learned that you must look out for yourself as everyone wants to make money off of you.
Los Angeles Traffic Is The Worst
One of the hardest parts about modeling in California is dealing with Los Angeles traffic. Since the Clements live in Orange County, they must drive to Los Angeles almost weekly, as most of their modeling jobs are in Los Angeles. Most of the time, it takes the Clements a couple of hours to reach their destination.
Although the twins sometimes complain that the drives are too long, they know that it is just part of being a model. Jaqi has gained a lot of patience as she is the one that is driving the girls to their photoshoots most of the time.
Finding The Right Advice
Since Jaqi was new to the industry, as well as Ava and Leah, she would often ask anyone for advice. But that changed quickly as she discovered that people acted like they were professional when they were just trying to get something out of it. Now Jaqi has a series of questions she asks anyone she wants advice from as she has learned to do her research before trusting anyone.
Sadly, Jaqi says that there are a good amount of agencies and people in the modeling industry that are just in it for themselves. Now Jaqi is a veteran and knows who is pulling her strings.
Ignoring Negative Comments
Another thing that Jaqi and the twins have unfortunately dealt with is the negative comments that they receive on social media. These comments can be pretty hateful, which adds more stress to Jaqi's life. Jaqi has gotten a lot better at dealing with haters online since she first started managing the twins' Instagram account.
Jaqi has lashed out a couple of times defending her family as some of the comments are directed not only at her and the twins but the rest of her family as well. Jaqi has stated that it is pretty frustrating dealing with haters, but it is part of being on social media.
The Twins Sometimes Look Sad
Since the twins are always giving the camera their modeling look, people have repeatedly commented why the girls look so sad, which has led some to believe that they are not enjoying their modeling careers. Obviously, this isn't true, as the twins have expressed how grateful they are to their mother for making their modeling career possible.
The twins even commented, saying that some of the photoshoots they do are supposed to be more serious and sad. One certain thing is that the twins know how to show their modeling faces and will probably be the top models once they get older.
Even though Jaqi wasn't too sure about having the girls put on makeup, she understood that makeup was just part of the industry, no matter how old you were. Many people have criticized Jaqi for allowing agencies to put makeup on the twins, but she explained that every agency does this and it is just part of the job.
Jaqi has been firm on how much makeup the girls wear as she wants them to look more natural in their photos and show their real beauty. Jaqi understands that as the girls get older, they will have their own choice to put on as much makeup as they want.
Jaqi Hates When People Say, "Let Them Be Kids"
One thing that bothers Jaqi the most is when people tell her, "let them be kids," as she waits for the twins to determine if they want to become models. Jaqi understands that not everyone knows that she waited until the twins were seven years old to ask them if they wanted to become models, but she gets annoyed with the comments as many people say the same thing.
Jaqi is not the only that is annoyed by the comments, as the girls often see these comments and know that it was their choice to become models at a young age.
The Clements Twins Have Several Talents
Ava and Leah are not only known for their modeling skills but have several talents that they are good at, which makes them pretty unique. The twins have always been fans of dancing and often would perform in front of their family when they were younger, which is probably the reason why they love modeling so much.
The twins also enjoy their time listening to pop music, hanging out with friends, and sometimes annoying each other, which leads to fights. The twins are just like ordinary little girls but spend the majority of their time modeling.
Modeling Life Has Its Perks
Being a model can be exhausting as there is a lot of traveling and long photoshoots but don't be fooled as it comes with many perks. One thing that the twins look forward to is traveling to new places and meeting new people all the time, which is a big part of the job.
Amazingly their modeling career actually brought the Clements family together as they are always with each other whenever they are traveling. Jaqi is grateful that her husband and son are benefiting from the girls' careers, as she didn't want them to feel left out.
Even More Perks
Modeling has brought the Clements family together and it allows them to travel to different places. Another perk that came along with the job is that Ava and Leah often receive clothes and products as gifts. The twins have received dresses from companies such as Gucci and have more enormous wardrobes than most adults.
Jaqi also benefits from this as she always wears the trending brands and is grateful that her daughters have given so much to the family. Almost every company wants to work with the twins, so they have unlimited new products to try out.
Jaqi really knew what she was doing when it came to managing Ava and Leah's Instagram account, as she was able to gain 300,000 followers in a short time. She stated that it was vital for her to learn how social media actually works and the tricks that helped her gain several thousand followers. One tip that Jaqi has given to people is not to overload your Instagram with photos, as people will start to get tired of seeing you, and eventually will lead to unfollowing you.
Jaqi explained that you have to find the perfect sweet spot, which will lead people to want to see your photos more often.
Hashtags Always Work
When it comes to Instagram, one of the best ways to spread your name is to include hashtags in your photos. Jaqi noticed that every time she didn't use any hashtags, the photo she posted wouldn't receive as many likes compared to the ones she would. Hashtagging also helped the twins get in contact with other models their age.
Jaqi really had to learn the ins and outs of Instagram and social media in order to get her girls in the spotlight. Without their mother, the twins wouldn't have been as famous as they are today, as their Instagram account has over 1.8 million followers.
Increasing Their Fame
Another way Jaqi helped the girls become some of the most popular models is that she started following several Instagram accounts that were part of the industry. Jaqi would follow other models that were the girls' age, kids' clothing stores, modeling agencies, photographers, and many others.
This tremendously helped Ava and Leah's success as everyone started recognizing their faces. It wasn't long before big-name companies started offering Ava and Leah modeling jobs. Now that the girls are a little older, she allows them to choose what companies they want to follow and work with as it is their career.
The Twins Love Commenting Back
One thing that the twins look forward to is when they comment back to people on social media. This has also led to the twins' success in modeling, as they have attracted a big following. Jaqi would often comment on other models' accounts so that they could get in touch and start working together.
Jaqi made the twins' faces familiar to everyone, leading to many agencies offering the twins jobs. When the twins would comment back to fans, it was always received well as it showed the true personalities of the twins. Jaqi thanks Instagram and Facebook for the twins' success.
Pictures That Stand Out
The Clements family started to notice that the public began to like particular photos the twins would be in, such as when they were right next to each other, and their eyes were level with each other. So the twins started to take more photos that the public liked, which led to them gaining over a million followers.
The twins have a unique appearance that draws most people in as they look strikingly similar, which is why so many enjoy seeing them right next to each other. These girls will be superstars once they get older as they have a particular look.
Where Did All The Outfits Come From?
Another reason why the twins' photoshoots are so popular is because of the outfits that they are wearing. Almost every photo features the twins in different outfits, leading people to question where they get all their outfits from. Jaqi knew that she needed a supplier that would lend her different outfits. When she started to ask around, she found out that her neighbor was the owner of a children's boutique and was glad to work with Jaqi and the twins.
The twins would promote their neighbor's clothes in return for using the outfits for photoshoots. This worked out perfectly for both parties as both were gaining profit.
Honesty Always Works
When it comes to working in the modeling industry, the Clements family found that it is best if you are honest from the beginning. They have stated no matter who you work with, you should be honest as it will only lead to good things as they knew from experience.
Your reputation in the modeling industry means everything, so it is best to be honest and upfront even though some things might not be liked when said. The twins have some of the best role models as their parents teach them everything they need to be the top models when they get older.
Model As Long As You Want
Since Jaqi and Kevin didn't want to put any pressure on the twins, they agreed that if the twins didn't want to model anymore, they didn't have to. The same thing went for Chase, the twins' brother, as he also got into modeling. Jaqi and Kevin have stated if their children want to model for the rest of their lives, they are up to the challenge of helping them through the process.
Their parents also agreed that they would back off if the twins wanted them to when they got older, as they knew they would eventually start working independently.
The Twins Have Several Friends
Another perk that the Clements twins have enjoyed about modeling is the number of friends they have made along the way. The twins are constantly meeting new people almost every day, which leads to a lot of friendships. Many of their friends are models their age that have a lot in common with each other.
The twins are very friendly and are prone to making new friends wherever they go. Jaqi is grateful that her daughters are able to have such a wonderful life at an early age and wishes that she was given the same opportunity when she was younger.
They Don't Want To Stop
The Clements twins have been on a roll ever since their mother started their Instagram account, and it looks like they won't be stopping anytime soon. The twins love to model and see themselves modeling for the rest of their lives. The twins are also interested in acting, so it wouldn't be a surprise if we saw them on the big screen one day.
The twins have their own YouTube channel where they post vlogs about their life, so they are not afraid to be in front of the camera. Jaqi and Kevin stated that they would support whatever the girls wanted to get into.
Modeling Comes At A Price
Modeling can be quite expensive, as the Clements family has found out, and it takes a lot to become the top models. A lot of money is spent on gas, food, photos, and traveling, which adds up. Luckily the twins are working pretty much every week, but that doesn't mean that the family is wealthy, as they still have to pay for a majority of their travels.
Jaqi has stated that they were fortunate enough to support what their daughters wanted to do as they know that not every family has the luxury of affording everything for their children to model.
Obviously, the twins got most of their genes from their father and mother, as they both are gorgeous people that were lucky enough to have beautiful children. The Clements family is often portrayed as a good-looking family as every one of them can be either a model or a movie star.
The Clements are grateful that they have such beautiful children and the luxury of creating a whole business behind them. Jaqi and Kevin never knew that their lives would end up like this, as they had no idea that Ava and Leah would be such a big deal.
Always Up For An Adventure
The twins have always enjoyed their modeling career besides the traffic and are always up for new adventures, as almost every photoshoot is different. The twins are always looking forward to working in different locations and meeting new people. The twins are lucky enough to experience something new every week, and they still haven't even traveled the world.
Even Jaqi has admitted to liking a new setting all the time, as nothing around them gets bland. The Clements twins show much promise for the future as they are not afraid to try anything new.
Close Relationship With Their Mother
The Clements twins have always been close to their mother and are grateful that she always supported them no matter what. The twins spend most of their time with their mother, who has created an unbreakable bond between them. One of their favorite moments is when the girls are traveling with their mother in the car when the three of them are just goofing around.
Jaqi is grateful that modeling has brought so much joy to her family and created a bond between her daughters that will last for eternity. In general, the whole family is pretty close to each other, which is something that just isn't as common as it used to be.
Officially Pro Models
Ever since the Clements twins started modeling in 2017, they have now become professional models as they have been modeling for over five years now. The twins look back on 2017 as one of the best years of their lives as they gained most of their popularity within that year.
Ava and Leah have just started their modeling careers and have a bright future ahead of them as they have become more famous than adult models at the peak of their careers. The twins are still working hard every day as they are looking to be supermodels one day.
Pretty Easy Life
Besides the stress from modeling, the twins have a wonderful life as most of their free time is spent either shopping for clothes for their next photoshoots or taking pictures with fans. The twins have it lucky as Jaqi is always there to ensure the girls receive the best care.
The Clements twins don't realize it now, but they really do have an awesome mom that is always trying to make their lives the best they can be. The Clements family has always been well off, but now the twins' popularity has been generating a lot of money for the family.
Using Their Fame For A Good Cause
When the twins' father was diagnosed with leukemia and lymphoma, they wanted to help out in any way that they could and decided to use their Instagram account to promote awareness. Luckily, the twins' father was able to fight off cancer which made the twins feel like they needed to help people that had the same sickness.
Ava and Leah ended up working with DKMS, which was an organization that prompted awareness for leukemia and lymphoma, which ended up being quite successful as the girls were able to raise a large amount of money for the cause.
The Twins Getting Older
Now that the twins are getting older, they have a lot more say in what companies they want to work with and the type of photoshoots they want to do. Jaqi and Kevin want the girls to eventually start working on their own as it will teach them responsibility, but they know that it might be some time as the girls are not even in high school yet.
Since the twins are older, they have been offered several jobs and their popularity has grown tremendously since their start in 2017. It looks like these girls will be modeling for quite a while as they are just as passionate as they were when they started.
1.8 Million Followers
The Clements twins have gained tremendous popularity since they started modeling and reached over 1.8 million followers on Instagram, which is pretty amazing since the girls are only 12 years old. The twins really have to thank their mother as if it wasn't for her, the twins wouldn't have had such a big following.
It will be surprising to see what these twins will achieve in the future as they are just as famous as movie stars. It won't be long until the twins are the most followed models on Instagram the way things are looking.
Always Speak Your Mind
Another tip that Jaqi and the twins give to new models is to speak your mind, as it can be hard to say what you want when you first start. Jaqi explained how it was hard to speak her mind when she first got the girls into modeling and urges people to speak up, as it helped out tremendously.
Sometimes these agencies need to hear what you actually want, and it is important to speak your mind when it is necessary. Jaqi stated that it could be quite intimating at first, but you will eventually get used to the pressure that comes along with modeling.
What's Next For The Twins?
Ava and Leah have a lot going for them as they are two beautiful little girls with their whole lives ahead. The twins are pretty lucky to have a family like their own as they fully support the girls becoming the top models in the world. Jaqi and the twins have learned a lot since they started in 2017 and they feel like they are professionals now.
Ava and Leah have become so popular that big-name brands are starting to sponsor their photoshoots, so the sky is the limit for these two. Before long, you will see the twins on the cover of a magazine or starring in a movie.
