Ava Marie and Leah Rose are better known to the world as the Clements twins. Their outstanding modeling success got them world Fame at the age of seven. The girls have an Instagram account managed by their mom, which is amassed one and a half million and followers. Twins Ava Marie and Leah Rose were born four and a half weeks early on July 7, 2010. Their mother, Jackie, says that it’s typical of girls to show up early, unannounced and ready to take action.
The twins have been getting compliments for their distinguished beauty since they were born. She knew it wouldn’t be easy, but she tried anyway. Most of the time it was difficult to even leave the house, let alone do any of the more complex endeavors. Kevin and Jackie were determined not to influence their kids lives in such a way, considering the fact that their kids would still be babies. This meant that for the following several years, modeling would not be an option.
The first modeling trial lasted for three months before Jackie realized it was way too early. The year was 2017 and the girl’s 7th birthday was approaching. Their parents decided to gently bring up the idea of modeling to the girls. After all, the number seven is a lucky number for many people and they were born on the 7th day of the year. One of their neighbors had a kid’s clothing store, so this was a great opportunity to try out the potential new hobby.
Jackie knew that the world of modeling can be tough on such young girls, so she took it slowly. The photos came out really nice and Jackie decided to send them out to some of the top modeling agencies. They enjoyed the spotlight, but the photo shoot looked a bit different than they imagined. Jackie decided that it would be a good idea to start an Instagram account for the girls. She felt that the account would help the girls reach higher popularity.
Also, it would make it easier for the modeling agencies to check them out and contact Jackie in case they were interested. Soon, agencies from all over the world started contacting Jackie about the girls. Their mother, Jackie, felt that they’d come clean with the agencies about their situation. Both agencies understood and had more gigs for the girls after they worked together on the shoot. The most popular pictures were headshots with the girl’s eyes in focus.
Also, people seemed to like the symmetry, so the photos of both sisters gained more likes than one of them being very sociable. The girls were able to make new friends in the industry. Jackie says there’s no price for meeting the amazing people she’s met in the modeling industry. Jackie Clements had to deal with mean comments from people saying that the twins look sad in pictures. Jackie assured her followers that the girls have a very happy childhood.
She tried to compare modeling to dance recitals where girls wear costumes and makeup for the sake of looking good. The criticism is just one of many negative sides of the business. Modeling costs a lot, definitely, but Jackie and Kevin put in another perspective. Parents support their kids emotionally and financially, and also it’s money that they invest in them now, but in the future it might give them an opportunity to earn on their own, she says. The worst thing about working in the industry was trusting the wrong people.
Even their older brother, Chase has started showing interest in modeling. His mother, Jackie, created an Instagram account for him under the name Cut to this Chase. She would also be in charge of his own Instagram account. Chase had signed on with the same agency as his sisters, and he’s worked for campaigns of Ross, Reebok and a variety of other brands. His Instagram account has over 600 followers and is steadily gaining in popularity.
Seeing Chase, Ava and Leah’s images makes you wonder about their incredible genetics. When you see a photo of the Clement’s family, you can’t help but think that they have a very attractive bunch. With parents that look like this, it’s no surprise that the children turned out to be so lovely. It’s no surprise that Jackie is getting increasingly involved in the modeling industry, participating in photo shoots with the girls because Jackie is committed to be their manager. From the beginning of her children’s modeling careers, this meant that they would spend a lot of time together, so she attempted to make the most of it.
She would offer them useful life lessons whenever she could because she understands that success at such a young age is rare, and while she can’t protect them from all the negative influences or comments, she can at least try to prepare them for difficult surroundings. Despite the fact that Jackie attempts to teach the youngsters how to deal with a variety of scenarios, she enjoys spending time with the girls as well.
All the girls in the family enjoy shopping and getting their nails done, so it’s always a girl’s adventure when it comes to shopping and painting their nails. These activities do not appeal to the males of the house, so they seek out other ways to have fun. Kevin and Chase like playing and observing as the girls do their nails and go shopping.
Kevin had a strong swimming career, finishing third in the world in the 200 meters individual medley in 2003. That’s why he’s always attempting to promote healthy lifestyle practices in the kids, and playing sports with Chase on weekends not only sets a good example, but also enhances their father son bond. Both Jackie and Kevin have long promoted healthy living, and it isn’t just rhetoric. When they get the opportunity, they like participating in any type of sporting activity as a family. Kevin and Jackie, as well as their children, love jogging, swimming, dancing, and playing basketball on a daily basis.
They always attempt to promote a healthy diet with their children as one would anticipate, the kids had a natural talent for modeling and their mother wasn’t far behind. Jackie also began modeling for a Mommy and Me ad with the girls, but because Jackie is aware of how much the girls like being in the spotlight, she’s always made an effort to take a backseat. She just wants to be there for them all the time, even if it means shooting a few pictures along the way. After a year in the industry, the girls had amassed over a million Instagram followers. They also maintained a blog, which Jackie was in charge of.
They had multiple collaborations with well known fashion labels and newspapers, and given how frequently they were contacted, the chances were that they would have even more and bigger gigs in the future. So Jackie was correct in her assessment of 2017 is a fantastic year for the girls who celebrated their 7th birthday on July 7, 2018 was also a year filled with new experiences.
The girls were still getting new interesting gigs and loving being the center of attention, but they had also begun their own YouTube blog, Clements Crew. Their followers could keep up with their daily exploits as well as the latest initiatives they were involved in. It was obvious that Leah and Ava had a sizable fan base, but no one knew what it meant or how it would affect their lives in the future.
The topic of millennial influencers piqued the interest of the creators of the CBSN Originals documentary series. They visit three prominent kidfluencer families in one episode, one of which is the Clemens family. This episode followed the lives of the kidfluencers and provided some fascinating insights not only into the modeling profession, but also into the ever changing world of social media, which has had a huge impact on people.
This one episode highlights the potential dangers of such a work, particularly because children aren’t entirely aware of the situation. Everyone has always appreciated young children’s performers for their incredible abilities to shift into different characters and adapt to different situations.
It’s different nowadays with kidfluencers. Still, the show is the kid himself and there’s no script. Nobody’s sure where the program will lead them. Fortunately for the twins, Kevin and Jackie appear to be fully aware of the risks the company keeps hidden and attempts to keep them under their wing for as long as possible. Jackie and Kevin are aware that exposing their children’s lives to the world may be scrutinizing, but rather focusing on the negative aspects of their celebrity.
They’ve chosen to use it for good causes after their newborn cousin was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy at the age of ten months. The Clements were well versed in the condition. They leveraged their big social media following to raise awareness about SMA and generate funds for innovative treatments for the disease.
2017 was a fantastic year for the twins and the entire family. They also had a fairly consistent year in 2018 and for the most part, 2019 has been a terrific year for the family, with several successful partnerships, the SMA Cure campaign and a lot of time spent seeking new adventures.
Kevin, on the other hand, felt uncomfortable in October 2019 and went to the Er because his heart rate was 85 beats per minute. Kevin was sent home because his EKG was normal, his chest Xray was clear, and his blood test was likewise normal.
His doctor suggested he might have pleurisy, which would recover on its own. Kevin’s next symptom, though, was a temperature when the fever didn’t go away. After a few days, he went back to the doctor, who told him he might have caught the flu, despite the fact that his symptoms didn’t match those of the virus.
Kevin tried to take a nap two weeks after his first symptoms, but he felt his heartbeat all around his body, so they went back to the Er. The Xray this time revealed fluid near the bottom of his lungs. They awaited the results of the Cat scan, which revealed a tumor in his thoracic cavity to cut a long tail short. It was cancer. Kevin was diagnosed with Cortical Tcell, acute lymphoblastic lymphoma and leukemia, a rare kind of cancer.
