Though they’re only eight months old, twins Leia and Lauren have already stolen the hearts of thousands on Instagram. Their parents are Singaporeans Amber Yong and Peter Lok, who initially decided to create an Instagram account for their girls “as a medium to document their growing journey.” They felt “it was a perfect platform to share these [photos] with our friends, family, and like-minded parents.” Thanks to Lok’s passion for photography and Yong’s love of styling, their project soon artistically evolved and the family’s followers grew.
Before long, Yong and Lok’s series went viral and the parents told TODAY, “[We’re] just glad that [Leia and Lauren] bring so much joy and positivity to their followers.” They also revealed that the girls are MOMO twins, which means that they shared the same amniotic sac in the womb. “It is an extremely high-risk pregnancy,” said Lok. “Therefore, they were delivered two months premature (not many realized that they are actually preemies).” Lok also mentions that, since then, his girls have grown to become healthy, happy infants.
