The internet fell in love with the “Trueblue Twins” after their mother shared photos of Megan and Morgan Boyd on Instagram. Stephanie Boyd first started posting photos of her twin girls when they were four years old, nicknaming them the “Trueblue Twins”. While most families enjoy sharing photos of their little ones, the twins’ unique beauty caught the attention of over 153,000 Instagram users. Their followers can’t get enough of these two young beauties– take a look at some of their most popular photos.
The Girls Were Born in June 2011
Twin girls Megan and Morgan Boyd were born on June 6, 2011. It was love at first sight for their mother, Stephanie, and she immediately knew that there was something special about her daughters.
The girls were born with beautiful eyes that captivated everyone who stopped to admire them. Stephanie was overjoyed to welcome the girls into the world and knew that she would love being a parent to Megan and Morgan.
Their Mother Nicknamed Them The “Trueblue Twins”
It’s common for parents of twins to come up with a nickname to call the two. Sometimes, it’s their last name, followed by “sisters,” “brothers,” or “twins”. But the “Boyd Sisters” just doesn’t give these girls justice. These little girls are certain to have a bright future ahead of them and their mother knew right away that they would become stars.
Stephanie began calling them the “Trueblue Twins” for their unique blue eyes, and the nickname stuck.
Of Course, Mom Loves Sharing Photos
Like most new moms, Stephanie enjoys sharing photos of her baby girls on social media for her friends and family to see. She posts photos of the twins on her Facebook and Instagram accounts and her friends and followers are amazed by the beautiful Trueblue Twins.
Megan and Morgan’s striking blue eyes make them easily recognizable and no one could ignore just how special these twins were. The ‘likes’ began flowing in.
They Often Wear Matching Outfits
It’s common for twins to be dressed in matching outfits, and that’s no different with the Trueblue Twins. Their mother loves shopping for the girls’ outfits and often dresses them in adorable matching clothes.
It’s clear from their popular Instagram photos that their mother Stephanie has an eye for fashion! The twins are always stylish in their matching outfits, yet it’s easy to tell the girls apart since their eyes are different.
Everyday Is Like A Fashion Show
Stephanie is a proud parent and always wants her twin daughters looking and feeling good. Each day, she takes the time to carefully select their outfits, style their hair, and add some cute accessories, too.
Even as a busy mom of these young girls, Stephanie finds the time to shop and keep the girls’ wardrobes fresh. With all of the beautiful clothing that the Trueblue Twins have, it’s almost like they’re celebrities!
The Twins’ Blue Eyes Are Very Rare
Because it’s rare for black people to have blue eyes, many people assume that African-American adults with blue eyes are wearing colored contacts. But this is not always the case. Some black people are born with a rare gene that colors their eyes blue.
You can see that the Trueblue Twins’ mother Stephanie also has blue eyes and likely gets questioned whether she’s wearing colored contacts or not… and she isn’t!
Morgan Has Heterochromia, Causing Her Eyes To Be Different Colors
It’s evident that both sisters have this rare gene for blue eyes. One of the Trueblue twins also has a genetic condition called heterochromia, which causes the eyes to be two different colors. Morgan is the twin sister with the condition, giving her one blue eye and one brown eye.
The characteristic sets the twin girls apart, making them not 100% identical. Because Morgan has heterochromia, it makes it easier to tell the two apart.
Morgan’s Condition Is Rare
One of the reasons people can’t help but stop and admire the Trueblue Twins is that Morgan’s eye colors are so rare. It’s likely that it’s the first time that many people have seen someone with two differently colored eyes.
Although for some people, heterochromia iridium may be due to an injury, this isn’t the case for Morgan. The condition doesn’t affect her eyesight, it just makes her more unique! According to historians, Alexander the Great also had the condition.
The Condition Won’t Slow Down Morgan’s Modeling Career
Morgan’s rare condition means that she has a physical trait that sets her apart from other girls. However, in no way is this slowing down her young modeling career! In fact, it’s likely to have helped her acquire new opportunities.
There are many stars who also have heterochromia, including actresses Kate Bosworth, Mila Kunis, and Alice Eve. Robert Downey Jr., Simon Pegg, and Henry Cavill also carry the rare gene.
Heterochromia Runs in The Girls’ Family
Like their blue eyes, the gene for heterochromia iridium runs in the girls’ family. The twins are bi-racial, and the gene is carried through the caucasian side of their family. Morgan’s great aunt and uncle also have different colored eyes, but neither of them are bi-racial like the Trueblue twins.
That makes Morgan’s look even rarer, as the condition is typically seen in people of European descent, with lighter skin.
And Suddenly, They Were Discovered
When the Trueblue Twins’ mother Stephanie shared photos of the girls on her social media, they always received plenty of likes. But, it wasn’t until someone with a large following shared an image of the twins that they became Insta-famous.
Musician and tattoo artist Deyonte Hunter posted a photo of the twins on this Instagram and his followers went crazy! Many of them jumped over to Stephanie’s Instagram to follow her account as the one photo garnered over 2,000 likes in a single day.
A Video Of The Trueblue Twins Received 6.6 Million Views
After Deyonte Hunter shared a photo of Megan and Morgan, a fan went to Stephanie’s Facebook page and created a video collage of the twins using photos she shared. The girls’ father, Lovell Knight, proudly shared the video.
While he knew fans would enjoy the video, he had no idea that over 6.6 million people would watch it! Almost instantly, the Trueblue Twins became a viral sensation. The proud parents were over the moon, excited for their girls’ future.
Celebrities Began Taking Notice
Internet users were dazzled by the Trueblue Twins’ beauty, as seen on the video and their mother’s social media accounts. Soon, they attracted the attention of Hollywood, too! Both actress Meagan Good and comedian D.L. Hughley came across a photo of Megan and Morgan and shared it with their followers.
Both of these top celebrities confessed to being fans of the beautiful young girls and wanted to help them gain more exposure to launch their modeling careers.
The Twins Are Popular Both Locally And Nationally
The Trueblue Twins’ parents were excited that the girls were starting to gain a following and fan base online, but they had always known that they were special. Since the time the twins were born, neighbors and people in their community would stop to admire the two and pay gracious compliments.
The twins weren’t born into stardom by having famous parents, rather they were making a splash just on their beauty alone.
Their Beauty Inspires Art
Many of the Trueblue Twins’ followers happen to be talented artists. Followers of Megan and Morgan often send them fan art inspired by the twins’ beauty. Their mother Stephanie sweetly shares some of the art sent to them on their Instagram account, showing appreciation.
Without much more than beautiful photos shared on Instagram, the Trueblue Twins are being treated as if they’re as big as the Olsen twins! And it was all happening so fast.
Stephanie Looks Out For Her Daughters’ Best Interests
While Stephanie knows that her twin daughters’ natural beauty can lead to professional modeling careers, she doesn’t want to push the girls into something they don’t want to do.
She explained to Megan and Morgan that if they wanted to, they could model and have some photos taken professionally. After hearing out their mom, the Trueblue Twins decided that they wanted to pose for some photos taken by a professional and see where it went.
The Trueblue Twins Love The Camera
While their parents adore taking photos of them, it was obvious from when they were toddlers that the Trueblue twins love being in from of the camera. Their aunt, Ebony Morris even says that the twins were “born for this” as they’re such naturals at modeling.
In every photo, the girls have fun posing and trying new faces. And they enjoy their outfits as much as their mother enjoys picking them out.
Their Father Is Understandably Protective
As many fathers are, Lovell Knight is very protective of his young girls. After sharing the video that kicked off their modeling careers, he’s both proud and concerned of what would happen next.
Their dad is making sure that the girls’ are enjoying posing for photos but are also getting to just be normal kids. Lovell makes sure that everything they work on is in the best interest of his girls’ future.
Not Getting Too Big, Too Fast
The Trueblue Twins are lucky to have such a loving and supportive family to look out for the girls’ best interest. While their parents are hopeful and happy that the girls have the opportunity to model, they don’t want to put any limits on what they can achieve.
Lovell and Stephanie also make it a priority to teach the girls how to stay grounded as they become more and more recognized everywhere they go.
Fans Ask To Take Pictures With Them
Now that plenty of photos of the Trueblue Twins have been shared across the internet, they’ve become celebrities. Their fans and followers often stop and ask to take photos with the girls.
Their mother says that the twins are very friendly with people who pay them compliments and ask for photos, but she never insists on the girls posing for photos with strangers. While Megan always obliges, Morgan sometimes prefers to stay out of the photo if she doesn’t know the person.
The Twins Also Have A Brother
The Trueblue Twins not only have each other, but they also have a younger brother. Megan and Morgan love being big sisters and spending time with their close-knit family.
The three of them pile into the backseat of the car and enjoy traveling with their mom and dad around their hometown of Philadelphia and beyond. You can see that their brother’s eyes aren’t blue like theirs, but they all share a similar resemblance.
Today the twins have 702,000 Instagram followers, garnering tens of thousands of likes with each photo that’s shared. Although they’re Insta-famous, Megan and Morgan also enjoy being regular kids.
Their mother shares that they aren’t growing up too quickly– the twins enjoy the same silly and fun things that other girls their age do, including eating candy, playing dress-up and goofing around. These sweet girls are professional and fun-loving, too.
They (Kind Of) Know They’re Famous
Megan and Morgan know that they pose for photos more than most kids their age and that not everyone gets recognized and stopped in the street. However, being so young, they don’t truly grasp what’s going on and what it means to be famous.
They’re not yet old enough to have their own phones or social media, and they aren’t entirely sure what it all means. Supposedly, they cutely told their teacher that they were famous on “NewTube”.
They Have Different Personalities
Having a twin is like having a built-in best friend. The girls spend the majority of their time together, but that doesn’t mean that they’re exactly the same! Morgan, on the left, enjoys putting on “fashion shows” pretending to walk the catwalk.
Megan, on the right, loves the glamour aspect of getting her hair done before getting her picture taken. Their parents love to see their different personalities shine as the girls get older.
Their Mother Books Their Modeling Gigs
After the twins showed interest in modeling, their mother Stephanie began accepting emails and calls about booking the twins. Their mother was truly amazed at how much attention the girls were getting at such a young age!
Stephanie is managing all of the girls’ modeling gigs herself, making sure that the twins are taking advantage of opportunities while also getting time to just be kids. Even talk show host Wendy Williams has reached out to them!
They’re Always Having Fun Working The Camera
Both girls have shown genuine interest in modeling, whether they’re doing a professional shoot or just posing for photos for their mother’s camera phone. Megan and Morgan enjoy dressing up, getting their hair done, and striking fun poses.
Their parents and fans can’t get enough of these adorable girls always striking new poses and having fun with each other while doing it. Stephanie notes that they love making silly faces between the more serious takes.
Snapchat Filters Are A Favorite Hobby
Although they don’t have their own cellphones yet, the Trueblue Twins love playing with Snapchat filters when their mother lets them borrow her phone. Just like other kids, Megan and Morgan aren’t all about serious photos, they have plenty of fun, too.
The girls goof around with the different Snapchat filters, and sometimes their mother will share the silly photos to their Instagram account. Even if they’re professional models now, kids will be kids!
They Have An Incredible Wardrobe
Just like their mother, the Trueblue Twins have a passion for fashion! The girls have always been nicely dressed, thanks to Stephanie, but now that they’re professional models their wardrobe is even better.
The girls often get to keep the clothes that they modeled in, and they love the perk! In turn for keeping the clothes, Stephanie will share photos of the girl all dressed up, and brands are happy to have them representing them.
The Twins Already Have An Eye For Fashion Design
Although you might assume that the girls’ outfits are always chosen by either their parents or professionals, that’s not always the case! Stephanie shares that now that the twins are a bit older, Megan and Morgan like to pick out their own outfits!
The girls have shown quite an interest in fashion, and they have an eye for it, too! Stephanie recalls a time when the girls stayed up late altering their jeans to have frays and holes in them, as they’ve seen in fashion trends.
The Trueblues Love Trying Different Hair Styles
One of the Trueblue Twins’ trademarks is their stylish hair. Their mother loves to try out new and different styles including braids, bows, and bantu knots. Megan, in particular, loves getting her hair styled.

The Twins’ Mother Loves Rihanna
