Stephanie Boyd took the internet by storm after sharing photos of Megan and Morgan Boyd Instagram and everyone instantly fell in love with the "Trueblue Twins". They were four years old when their mom started sharing photos and nicknamed them "Trueblue Twins". Their Instagram account has over 720k followers by now and people can't get enough of them. So, let's take a look at their photos.
1. Bringing Special Daughters into The World
Megan and Morgan Boyd are twins and they were born on June 6, 2011. Their mother instantly knew that there was something amazingly special about her little angels.
The unique thing about the girls is their eyes. Stephanie cried with happiness and was delighted and excited knowing that she would become the best parent to Megan and Morgan.
2. A Unique Name for Unique Girls
Parents come up with super unique names for their kids. Stephanie could've come up with "Boyd Sisters", but it wasn't really a unique name. She wanted to give them a name that would stand out.
After a while, she came up with the name "Trueblue Twins" and started calling her daughters with it. Hence, the nickname stuck and the rest is history.
3. Beauty And Uniqueness Worth Sharing
Like most new moms out there, Stephanie also started to take a lot of photos of her cutie pies and shared them on social media for her family and friends.
The beautiful Trueblue Twins amazed everyone and their striking blue eyes made them easily recognizable. Unexpectedly, the number of likes and followers started to increase.
4. Baby Blues
Everyone is always in awe when they see pictures or meet Megan and Morgan because of their striking blue eyes. In this photo, you can see just how vibrant Morgan's eyes are and how bold Megan's eyes look.
It will be interesting to see if their eyes stay bright blue throughout their entire life because sometimes eye colors change as people age.
5. Matching Outfits
If you ever saw twins in life, especially in your school, you may have noticed that it is common for twins to dress in matching outfits. In the case of Trueblue Twins, it wasn't different as well.
Stephanie loves to shop for different outfits for her angels and dresses them in some of the most adorable matching clothes. One thing is clear from the Instagram photos that Stephanie has an eye for fashion. After all, the twins are always dressed in stylish matching outfits.
6. A Rare Eye Color
Blue eyes are rare among African-Americans and most people assume that they are wearing colored contacts.
In this case, it is different as some black people are born with blue eyes due to a rare gene. You can see that even Stephanie has blue eyes and they are all real and she's not wearing any colored contacts.
7. Living Like Cute Little Celebrities
Stephanie is a proud parent and she's always trying to make sure her daughters always look and feel good.
Although she is a busy mom, she still finds some time to choose the right outfits for them, styling their hair, and finding accessories as well. With such matching clothes and hairstyles, they are like little celebrities.
8. The Reason Behind Different Color of One Eye
Both sisters have gorgeous blue eyes due to a rare gene. Morgan has heterochromia, a genetic condition which causes the eyes to be two different colors. So, she has one brown eye and one blue eye.
In this way, one characteristic sets apart two twins sisters in a way that they are not 100% identical. It also makes it easier to tell the two sisters apart.
9. A Rare Condition
The Trueblue Twins already have rare eye color and what makes them even more unique is Morgan's eyes. She has a rare condition and that's why many people stop to admire them. The heterochromia iridium condition can cause the eyes to be different colors at adult age, but Morgan was born with it.
The condition is rare and it doesn't affect the eyesight. By the way, historians believe that Alexander the Great also had the condition.
10. The Impact of The Condition on Morgan’s Modeling Career
One might assume that the rare condition might make it harder for Morgan to become a model. In reality, her condition means that she has a physical trait which sets her apart from others.
So, it won't cause problems in her modeling career and may even do the opposite. You can find many celebrities with this condition such as Mila Kunis, Simon Pegg, Kate Bosworth, Alice Eve, Henry Cavill, and even Robert Downey Jr.
11. The Condition Runs In The Family
Just like the rare gene that gives a blue color to the eyes, the gene for heterochromia iridium also runs in the girl's family. It is because the girls are bi-racial and the gene is from the Caucasian side of the family. In fact, Morgan's great uncle and aunt also have different colored eyes.
What makes Morgan even more unique is that this condition is mostly seen in people of European descent and with lighter skin color.
12. When The Internet Discovered Them
Whenever Stephanie shared the photos of her adorable daughter on social media, her friends and family always loved them. But there wasn't a large following of the Instagram account. But then someone discovered the twins and they became famous.
Deyonte Hunter, a musician and tattoo artist, posted the photo of Trueblue Twins and they people started following them. From just a few likes per photo in a day, it changed to over 2,000 likes per post in a single day.
13. One Video Received Over 6.6 Million Views

He didn't know that the video would become such a big hit. In a matter of no time, the video had unbelievable 6.6 million views and the twins became a viral sensation.

Even the neighbors and family members always admired the beauty of Megan and Morgan, but this time it was something big. The girls weren't born to famous parents, but they were making a name for themselves with their beauty and uniqueness.
17. Mama Looking Over Daughters
Stephanie understands that the natural beauty and uniqueness of her daughters can lead to professional modeling careers. Still, she is making sure that she doesn't push the girls into doing something they are not comfortable with.
Before taking professional photographs of Megan and Morgan, their mother explained them everything and asked if they still wanted to do it. The Trueblue Twins heard their mama out and decided to pose for some photos and see how it all goes.
18. Mini Bosses
The twins love to represent girl power with adorable outfits like these. They know they are mini-bosses because of their early success, and the twins should be proud of themselves.
Morgan and Meghan never shy away from a bold outfit, and when they get to model in clothes like this, they are always excited.

It is because he wants his daughters to pose for photos and have fun, but he also wants them to enjoy a normal childhood. He's a dad who is just looking out for the best interest of his daughters.
20. Not Shy In Front of The Camera
As the parents of Trueblue Twins used to take a lot of pictures of their daughters when they were toddlers, they find no jitters in front of the camera. In fact, they become more confident in front of it. Their lovely aunt, Ebony Morris says that the twins were "born for this" because they are naturals when it comes to modeling.
You can see that the girls try to pose different in every photo and even try to change their facial expressions.
21. Getting Into Makeup Early
If you visit their Instagram page, you can see they get their love of makeup from their mom. They got Frozen-themed makeup kits that they use to practice their makeup skills.
Obviously, they are too young to be wearing makeup all the time, but it is always fun to practice and perfect their makeup skills as they grow up.
22. Loving and Supportive Parents
The twins are really lucky to have such caring, loving, and supportive parents. The parents are always looking out for the best interest of their daughters and are hopeful that the girls will achieve a lot in their lives.
The parents are also teaching the girls how to stay grounded as they become more noticeable and get recognized.
23. They Also Have A Cute Brother
The Trueblue Twins also have an adorable younger brother. They love being big sisters and try to teach new things to their brother. When this picture was taken, the twins and their brother were enjoying traveling with their mom and dad around their home town of Philadelphia.

24. A Strong Fan Base
The Trueblue Twins' Instagram account has over 720k followers and they have certainly become celebrities. Many followers and fans often ask to take photos with the girls. Stephanie says that the twins are always nice and friendly to people who ask for photos and pay them compliments.
However, she has also taught the girls not to pose for photos with strangers. Megan mostly accepts the request for a picture, but Morgan sometimes stays out of it if she doesn't know the person or feels uncomfortable.
25. Cute Little Official Models
As of today, Megan and Morgan's Instagram account garners tens of thousands of likes on each photo. They are famous on Instagram and have a substantial presence, but they also love enjoying life as regular kids as well.
Stephanie shares that her little angels are not growing up too quickly and they are usually enjoying doing things that others girls of their age do such as, playing dress-up, eating lots of candy, and many other silly and fun things.
26. Do They Know They Are Famous?
As compared to kids of their age, Megan and Morgan pose for photos a lot...a lot. And that's why these two gets recognized so easily. They are so young and don't fully grasp that they are famous, but they kind of have the idea about it.
Their parents have ensured that the girls are not old enough to have their own phones or social media. Something that most parents need to consider with young kids. The twins somewhat know that they are famous because they told their teacher that they were popular on...wait for it...”NewTube”. How hilarious is it, right?
27. Fan Art Galore
As the twins have gained recognition and a fan base, they receive lots of fan art. They love to share their favorite ones on Instagram, like this one from Millixi.
It is so fun for them to see how people will draw them and what looks people choose to illustrate.
28. Christmas Photo Shoots
The twins have always loved celebrating Christmas because it is a special time to enjoy the company of family and be merry. Since they were born, they have an annual photoshoot for their Christmas card with matching outfits, of course.
They look fabulous in these plaid dresses that scream Christmas time. It really gets you in the holiday spirit, and we can't resist how adorable they are.
29. The Other Role of Mom
Although both parents equally share the workload of parenting, the mom has to look after one extra thing: the modeling gigs for her daughter. She accepts calls and emails about booking the twins for modeling. She is not taking any help in managing the modeling gigs of her daughter. She actually enjoys it a lot as she gets to choose the best ones. For her, quality is number priority.
She is quite proud and happy that her daughters are enjoying while taking advantage of opportunities. All these modeling gigs can have a positive impact on their modeling portfolios in the future. By the way, the talk show host Wendy Williams also contacted Stephanie.
30. Almost Identical Twins, Almost Different Personalities
Having a twin sibling is the best as you get to have an automatic best friend. The girls love to spend most of the time together, but the interesting thing is that they're not exactly the same. For instance, Morgan loves to watch fashion shows and pretend to do the catwalk.
On the other hand, Megan loves the glamor of getting her hair done before photo-shoot. There have different personalities, but they are each other's best friend.
31. Gorgeous Little Posers
As both girls have shown genuine interest in modeling, they know how to pose whether it is in front of their mother's camera or a professional shoot.
Both girls enjoy getting their hair done and getting their photos taken with striking fun poses. The mother noticed that the twins make silly faces especially in between more serious takes.
32. Passion for Fashion
We told you earlier that Stephanie buys clothes for her daughters and it is pretty evident that she's got a great fashion sense. Just like their mother, the girls also have a passion for fashion. That's why they focus a lot on dressing nicely. And now that they have become professional models, they dress even better and have an incredible wardrobe.
One of the reasons for their wardrobe is that they get to keep the clothes they modeled in and they keep the brands happy by wearing their clothes and sharing photos of all dressed up in them. So, brands are not the only ones who love the twins.
33. They Love Snapchat Filters (Of Course)
The twins don't have cellphones yet, but it doesn't mean that they can't request their mom to let them borrow the phone. Just like most kids of their age, Megan and Morgan also don't take serious photos and are always having fun taking strange and silly photos.
One of their favorite things to do is goof around with the Snapchat filters. They look so cute with those filters and even the mother shares photos of her daughters having fun with Snapchat filters.
34. They're Interested in Fashion Design
As Stephanie used to choose clothes for her daughters and even professionals did it on a few occasions, the twins are a bit older and now they do like to pick their outfits. In fact, they have shown a lot of interest in fashion.
They also try to read more about fashion. Stephanie even recalls the time when both of them stayed up all night to alter their jeans in a way that they had holes and frays in them. Well, they certainly know a lot about fashion trends.
35. Experimenting With Different Hair Styles
One of the trademarks of Trueblue Twins is their stylish hair. A lot of credit goes to the mother as she loves to try out different styles of bows, braids, and Bantu knots. Megan really loves getting her hair styled and wearing new clothes.
Apart from the unique eyes, the fans also love their hairstyles and look forward to seeing what hairstyle they choose next. One thing to notice is that the twins always have matching hairstyles in their photos.
36. They Are Little Instagram Influencers
Just like so many Instagram influencers, the twins have also started to endorse products. They are quite young, but they have over 720k followers on Instagram. To ensure the twins endorse the best products, the mother carefully vets each and every product endorsement opportunity.
Given that many brands give lucrative offers to the girls, their mother believes she has to select only those brands that fit the Trueblue Twins' brand. This shows how quickly someone can become famous and the good thing for the twins is that they can start saving their funds for their future.
37. Stephanie Loves Rihanna
You can find many Trueblue Twins' fans thinking that the twins bare some resemblance to Rihanna. It is true to some extent, but the main reason behind it is that their mother is a big fan of the musical artist. She loves Rihanna so much that she styles the girls' hair to look like hers in this photo.
The fans of the twins are excited thinking about how the girls would develop their style when they grow older and perhaps, Rihanna might be their big inspiration for fashion as well. What do you think about it?
38. They Once Dressed As Rihanna
These twins learned a lot from their mom and it turns out that they are also fans of Rihanna. They decided all by themselves that they would dress up as Rihanna in Halloween.
So, they dressed up as her poster for ANTI World Tour. They look so beautiful and show some resemblance to RiRi as well.
39. Striking A Pose At A Moment's Notice
It doesn't matter where the girls are or what they are doing, most of the time they are ready to strike a pose for the camera. It has a lot to do with the fact that they do professional photography and love getting their photos taken by their parents.
Take this photo as an example. The family was at Walmart when the mom wanted to take a photo and the girls took no time in striking a pose. Megan seems like she is imitating her mother and just look at Morgan. She’s so cute.
