Mum of eight-year-old twins who are hailed the ‘most beautiful girls in the world’ is slammed for ‘exploiting’ their looks for money

THE mum of twin girls dubbed “the most beautiful in the world” is being slammed online by other parents accusing her of “exploiting” her kids’ good looks.

Leah Rose and Ava Marie Clements – who are based in LA and Orange County – have racked up over one million Instagram followers in a matter of months, with the twins now being booked for lucrative fashion deals.

The girls’ mum, Jaqi, first signed the twins up for modelling at just six months old, but it wasn’t until they reached Insta-fame that they were approached by brands.

Also signed up to agencies including LA Models, Eris Talent Agency and God & Beauty, the girls – who go by the name of @clementstwins on Instagram – have posed for a number of magazines including La Petite Magazine, Petite Adele clothing, VÉG-A-PORTÉR, and Airfish.

“This past year has been really fun and exciting for Ava and Leah,” Jaqi told BuzzFeed.

“Whether it be private shopping experiences, gifted merchandise from brands all over the world, or taking pictures with fans, the girls have had an amazing ride so far.”

While Leah and Ava receive a lot of attention from fans – including some who have dubbed them “the most beautiful girls in the world” – others have slammed Jaqi for “taking away their childhood”.

This week, social media users have been expressing their concern via a thread on Reddit, with several accusing Jaqi of using the girls to make money.

One user wrote: “Why do people do this? Is social media everything? Why take away their childhood?”

Others tagged it in the “casual child abuse” community while another said: “This is so gross. I have an eight year old. Couldn’t imagine exploiting her like this for money or Instagram likes.

“And all that make up and Photoshop. Ew.”

Another accused Jaqi of “living vicariously through her daughters” with one claiming she “doesn’t care as long as she makes a few bucks in spite of them”.

Despite the criticism, Jaqi claims the girls love modelling, but explains she finds it hard when people assume she’s making a lot of money from it.

“I presented my idea to the girls that if they were up for it, in addition to their dance classes and swim team practices they had every week, they could give modelling a try,” Jaqi wrote in 2017.

“I was not surprised at all when they started jumping up and down and couldn’t wait to begin.”

“[One] not so amazing thing about this new life are all of the expenses associated with it!” She later revealed.

“A lot of people assume parents are making money just because they see their kids working a lot. FALSE!

“I know in our case and probably in most cases the parents are putting out more money in order to support their kids.

“But I guess if you really put it all into perspective, the money we as parents put out now to support our kids in something they love doing, will allow them to make their own money they can use towards College or a car or a house in the future.

“So if you think about it, it’s really not so bad after all!”

Jaqi has also addressed other parents who think her daughters look “sad”, revealing the girls are “fine and happy”.

“Making that comment about my girls implies that you know them, our family, their hobbies and friends and what makes them happy in life,” she said.

“Did you ever stop to think that maybe modelling actually makes them happy!? If not, let me be the first one to tell you… it DOES!

“Although I appreciate your concern, just know my girls are fine!

“They are happy! They have an amazing childhood with lots of friends that they get to play with everyday!

“A single pose does not define their personality or their quality of life.

“They are acting… and apparently they are pretty good at it to give off the impression that they are anything but happy go lucky little girls!”

Earlier this week, we told you about one mum’s strict 17-rule contract for her son, 12, having a phone, which includes ‘no messages before 7.30am’ and ‘ALWAYS answering your parents’.

We also revealed mum finds naked photo of her ‘big-chested’ sister on her HUSBAND’S computer but he ‘swears he’s been hacked’.
