Their photo became viral on the internet – the little girls became celebrities and appeared in many fashion shows and other events.
Megan and Morgan were born in June 2011 in Philadelphia, United States, and they are both eleven years old now. Their parents' names are Stephanie Boyd and Lovell Knight.
"When Stephanie Boyd gave birth to her twins on 6 June 2011, everyone around her could immediately tell that the girls stood out. One thing that set them apart was that they were black twins with blue eyes, which does not often happen among black people," one news outlet wrote. "Before they became famous on the internet, the girls were already well-known in their community. Their nickname, Trueblue Twins, is what their mother and family used to refer to them when they were born. Furthermore, whenever their parents came across someone they knew, the person would ask to have pictures with them."
Stephanie herself is a social media influencer and plus-size model who manages her daughters' Instagram account, which has more than 818K followers on the platform. Their YouTube channel also has a huge fan following, with more than 61 thousand subscribers, and people love watching their videos. According to Yen News, the twins' mother, Stephanie, loved sharing her daily life on the internet. When her daughters were born in 2011, she started posting their adorable pictures and videos.
Her posts were often reposted by her friends and family members on Instagram. In 2015, a Camden musician and tattoo artist shared one of the twins' photos on his social media account. And his post went viral. From there began the public journey of the twins, and people went crazy after them.
"One of the twins' photos immediately received more than 2,000 likes in a day. They then took over Instagram and headed to Facebook. As a result, their online fan base increased, and some influencers even started creating content about the girls."
Stephanie Boyd started sharing the content created by other influencers on her social media account, and one of her posts gained more than six million views, after which many celebrities, including Ray Ray, Mindless Behavior band members, and Yandy Smith, Wendy Williams, shared their photos and videos on their pages.
The Trueblue Twins have a syndrome called Heterochromia Iridis, a condition when one iris has a different color than the other.
The girls are now rising social media personalities and fashion models, and many big brands love collaborating with them.
While Megan and Morgan's mom Stephanie loved sharing their content online and making money out of it, their dad, Lovell Knight, wants their kids to have a normal childhood like other kids.
"Sometimes, I don't like the unwanted attention my baby girls get when we are out and having family time. It's like they are celebrities now; people would come and click pictures with them and then are out shooting with brands and fashion shows and whatnot. I want them to have a simpler life," he said.
