These Atlanta Twins Will Melt Your Heart Through Their Adorable Instagram Account
Don't say we didn't warn you. In a recent article from Good Morning America, we were delighted to become acquainted with Justin and Marcel Jackson, known to their 33,000+ Instagram followers as @thejackson_twins. During these tough times, the adorable 20-month old boys have brought a smile to countless peoples' faces thanks to their mom and Dad, MaHogany and Justin's beautiful account of their sweet, energetic, and loving tots. The family, which originally hails from Lynchburg, Virginia, and recently relocated to Atlanta, Georgia, shared a bit of the backstory with Southern Living.
"It was actually my husband, Justin Jackson Sr., who had the idea to start the boys Instagram account. He believed that since the twins bring so much joy to us and nearly everyone we meet, starting them a social media account would allow people from all over the globe to feel that very same joy and love. Honestly, when he brought the idea to me, I was a bit nervous. Social media is a great resource for us all, yet I wasn't quite sure if it would be a great place for the boys at such a young age," MaHogany says. "To my husband and I, our boys are the sweetest twin boys we've ever met. I was hesitant to put them on social media because I didn't want to open up the opportunity for others to possibly share a different opinion, and say unkind things about them, [but] the response from day one of starting the twins Instagram account has been amazing," she continues, noting that fans of the boys from all parts of the globe "have been uplifted and encouraged through the twin's Instagram account."
Indeed, we totally get that sentiment. How cute are these fellas? We just can't get enough.
"People often comment and send us messages that seeing the twins on Instagram brightens up their day and encourages them to keep going during trying times," says MaHogany. "It's been an incredible experience creating a family of over 33,000 followers on Instagram. We wouldn't have it any other way." In addition to Instagram, you can also follow along with the Jackson family on YouTube here.
So when they're not enjoying family time or being mini style icons, what does this adorable pair enjoy? Coming straight after our Southern hearts, MaHogany shares the boys love mac and cheese. "Imagine the cheesiest, creamiest mac and cheese, yeah, one made to order like that would have them in toddler heaven," she tells Southern Living. "At this age, the boys' language skills are ever growing, yet they haven't quite learned how to request mac and cheese. For us as parents, this may be a good thing, because they would literally request it for dinner every night if they could," she jokes.
