  • Are you BTS army if you’re so pls like my comment please co’z I am also BTS Army ♥️���� I PURPLE YOU BTS AND ALL ARMIES including you both

  • I have friends who are twins and our mom’s are best friends who were pregnant at the same time. I’m two months younger than them, and from ages 2 months-10 years they were so identical that I was the only one who could tell them apart. Of course I wasn’t vocializing who was who at 2 months but that’s when we met

  • I am a twin I was born first 4 pounds 3 oz my sister was born 8 pounds 2 oz. So it was easy to tell is apart until in 2nd grade I almost caught up to my sister. Then by Middle School it was almost impossible to tell us apart. My parents would carry around a rolled pair of socks to throw at us to see what hand we use to catch them I’m right-handed my sister is left-handed. Bennett High School with your curveball cuz I’m ambidextrous and I can catch with both hands

  • I’m an identical twin and I can’t tell my twin sister and I apart from physical features alone in photos from when we were younger than 6. Our parents would dress my twin up in blue and me in pink. My twin sister and I still do this to this day, even when we don’t look much alike anymore.

  • one day I’ll be able to properly tell them apart without thinking about it for too long�� but i cannot get over how much all 3 boys look alike! They’re all so beautiful❤

  • I sometimes thought if (with consent from the parents) the babies were so identical the doctor would give them a sort of scar/birthmark so they can be told apart. Nothing too big ofcourse.

  • I’m a girl with a brother who’s two years younger than me. When we were about 7 and 5, we used to look so identical that I used to dress up in his clothes, put my hair up in a hat, and imitate his mannerisms around my mom and she couldn’t tell the difference. He’d be watching from the sidelines snickering. We did this regularly until finally our mum caught on.

  • As an identical twin myself, my mom used to tell us apart by the scratches I had on my face due to my sister. One was dressed in pink and one was dressed in purple. My mom used to give us our signature hairstyles (pigtail(s) so she could tell us apart. Our voices are different tones, me being the higher one. I feel it’s easy to tell twins apart if you take the time to learn and spend time with each one.

  • 1:10 my dad, aunts and cousins are twins….Some days it’s obvious they’re different, other days it’s hard. For my dad it’s easy but if my uncle is over and I didn’t know I get totally confused. Once they were out on the veranda talking and I called for my dad and my uncle answered and I kinda sensed it was off so when I went out there and saw two of my dad I was verry confused. I was about 16/17 (it was also dark so I couldn’t see very
    clearly)

  • I’m a fraternal triplet and many times, people mistook my sister and I all the time even though we look nothing alike. Also, people sometimes believe that my brother and her were twins and I’m just a older sibling, friend, or relative.

  • My cousins are twins and I can’t tell them apart until they speak. They both whine when they speak, they don’t do it intentionally, but one has a deeper voice. That didn’t start working until we hit puberty. Before then, we relied on who had the scar from when I hit one of them with a bottle. I’m thinking about giving her another scar since that happened when we were babies and that was 20 years ago (that’s so weird to say.)

  • i am also a teen mom to indentical twin girls named Ashleigh and Olivya (Pronounced Ashley and Olivia) who are almost a year and a half and im about to turn 16! me and my bf are thinking about starting youtube what do you guys think? and sophie i love u too

  • Me and my little sister looked exactly the same as babies/ toddlers, she just had brown eyes. You’d think this helps telling us apart in baby photos, but shitty 90’s camera + my weird color changing eyes and this is not quarantee. Our parents can obvi tell, but we have to guess based on location, clothes, aprox time, and situation of the picture. Doesn’t help that she inherited all my clothes and toys.

  • You’re only 17! And you have twins! You’re boyfriend or husband is so ugly like you! Haha, I’m so glad I don’t have kids like you, you nasty pussy

  • I’m a girl my twin is a boy but we got asked if we were identical a lot of the time even though I’m brunette and he is blonde, then others say we aren’t twins cuz we don’t look alike. But we had twin to twin transfusion which caused health problems so I’m almost a foot shorter than him and wasn’t breathing HE ALMOST K I L L E D ME. But yeah I usually get asked what’s it like being a twin and I usually think to myself how am I supposed to answer that. But my brother has speech impediment which is easy to hear if you ever have a conversation with him. I was able to translate for him when we were little and even to this day I can still understand what he’s trying to say.

  • I knew some identical twins and I knew which one was which because one had a mole in the same place I do and this kind of sound mean but her name was my favorite out of the two. Also I know/knew some other identical twins. I only knew which one was which when one cut her hair and I was hanging out with her that day. I still have to ask which one she is every so often.

  • Put your files on dropbox too.. hard drives can crash and you can lose everything so back it up to dropbox too. you can download dropbox to your laptop. super easy.

  • I LOVE their names. The only thing that would worry me is that they both get the same nickname “Kai/Cai” since both have a Kai/Cai in their name. But of course they can control that and if they’re together a lot they obviously wouldnt be nicknamed the same, haha. Just thought maybe later at school or something. Anyway, I love their names and they’re just ADORABLE!

  • Did any one else hear him say she stone not even a minute in tbh I would too it help with stress and anxiety and depression with having two newborns

  • I randomly started watching your videos one day while I was pregnant. I knew what I was naming my son and I started watching before you announced the babies names. I named my son Luke and my fiances name is Josh. What really messed with me though is he has a cousin who he’s SUPER close with whos named Zeke. Just thought it was so funny that I randomly clicked on your video one day and there was so many similarities. I love watching your videos enjoy seeing the babies grow. ����

  • this isn’t technically twins, but me and my cousin were 3 days apart and identical from sisters. Everytime someone came over for a holiday, someone would end up not eating and someone would end up not getting a diaper changed. At that time our voices were identical too.

  • My mom & auntie are twins☺️�� the way I tell them apart is that my mom has an oval face is my aunts is more round. I’ve noticed this on a lot of twins!

  • For years my entire family thought one of the photos in our family album was of me(22F) and my second oldest brother. It took us 13years to realize that the female(5year old me) was actually my brother who is 1year older than me. I have no idea how we made this mistake. I have a clear birthmark on my right cheek, he does not. He is taller than me. Also I never played football. But for some reason the mix up happened and it’s always fun to poke fun of him for being a pretty girl when he was younger.

  • I think my favorite part was the “no I like my strawberry” because I have one of those on the top of my head and I have health conditions so my hair has thinned in certain areas and we’ve been told I can get rid of it and I used to call it a cherry ��

  • I knew a pair of twins in one of my classes. I felt so bad about getting them mixed up that I spoke to one of their friends about telling them apart since he knew them the longest. I guess the longer you know them, the more differences you can spot between them.

  • Not an identical twin but my friend is one. I’ve been friends with her for 3 years now and even at the 1 year mark it was easy to tell them apart. I once went to their house and saw one of them for a half a second in the window around the door. I immediately knew it was the other twin even though I had such little time to differentiate between the two. You kinda just realize the tiny differences between them ex. one has a slightly deeper voice than the other and a little larger face.

  • I have this super power where I can pick out all the differences between identical twins I just can’t pinpoint the name like for example the Dobre Brothers one has a birthmark on the chin the other one has a birthmark on their cheek one has more smile lines and the other ones got more dimples

  • I am not related to the twins, but I have several different friends that are twins. One set, in particular, look almost identical, but I am one of the few people who is able to tell them apart. They haven’t told me which one is older, but I really don’t care as they are both sweethearts and I can easily tell them apart.
    For example, One has sharper features with more butch energy (she’s questioning her gender and also full gay for girls), while the other has a much softer face with more done to her hair. Their voices are also different. Valencia (not her real name) tends to wear darker clothes while Carol (again not her real name) tends to wear lighter too. It’s minor stuff like that which make it easier for me. I’ve known them for the least amount of time, but I can tell them apart better than my other friend. They also have distinctly different personalities and both are wonderful friends.

  • Even before this vid I knew how to tell them apart Alex has a mole at the side of his right eye and Alan has a whole mark on his neck below the chin

  • I always wondered if a set of identical twins have the wrong names because the parents mixed them up. Ex: born Emma but has grown up janet

  • Friends in school were twins, and they had an older sister. They looked like identical triplets. I can’t remember now how I told them apart, but it felt natural. I never mixed them up. They appreciated that.

  • We had our ears pierced as babies and my mom put little silver hoops on my sister and gold on me. But I also had a very bright blue vein on my eyelid

  • I have cousins that are twins and when they were babies so many people thought it was so hard to tell them apart but I spent so much time with them (they are only 6 months younger than me) that it has always been easy for me to tell them apart. I’ve even had to tell my aunt and uncle which kid was which in baby pictures but they way I’ve always told them apart was that the “older” one (by like 30 mins lol) was always chunkier and has a wider face where the other has more narrow features.

  • I’m an identical twin and my parents told us apart because I sucked on my ring and middle fingers, she sucked on her middle and pointer fingers. Also I got a scar on my forehead so we can tell my that in some pictures, and bangs didn’t work on my hair so she had bangs alot and I didn’t.

  • I have little sisters who are twins and they are ferternal and look completely different to me, but when friends or family who haven’t seen them that often can’t tell which is which in their photos up to 2 years. I always point it out no problem and it always never fails to get the response of ‘how?’.

  • So, didn’t have twins (keeping with Reddit replies). However I was super paranoid that the nurses would bring back the wrong baby.
    So, my 1sy child had a red spot between her brows & my 2nd child had a blue dot. I felt it was nature’s way of giving me some peace of mind.

  • I’m a twin and my mom would dress us alike and we just react to the other twins’ name because why not. She told us apart because I slept and my sister didn’t.

  • Wait so how do they not mix names right after birth? As soon as the baby’s out I’m guessing they label them with those plastic/paper bracelets but what about when they come off. I’m sure some parents got the names and babies mixed up when they were really small so for example the child destined to be named Jack was name Drake and so and so. Ya know. And they’ll never know…
    Edit: 9:44 is what I was tryna say

  • I definitely can tell you apart so please check your instgram dms if you please I will be the best and the happiest one of the word if you guys replied to me in my Instagram DM’s and this would be the best day in my life and if you did that please please tell me here and reply to my comment love you so much guys and yeah I will be very that is Rick sometime and hang out together with u guys and by the way I am a gymnast so I can flip and join u Alan with some backflips and if you both check my DM’s on My instgram account so so you’re going to find my gymnastics videos and photos there.

  • I can agree as a twin, because you are so used to people getting you mixed up (and often times that know who’s personality is who’s but they can’t get the names straight) you just look up even when its not your name. There have been several times people have wanted me, but said my sisters name. Most of the time if you’re together you just wait to see who they’re looking at and just correct them later

  • Hi Lex!! Where was Val? Did you let him take a nap or was he somewhere with Zander? The babies are BEAUTIFUL!! Soooooooo sweet and cute, oh how I wish I could hold them! You look beautiful too Mommy by the way. So very proud of you. You did an outstanding job, just LOOK at these boys. Amazing how you made everything look so easy. I know it wasn’t easy but you made it seem that way. One month already!! You are so lucky! How is Z reacting to these two little guys? Tell Val I said HELLO DADDY! LOVE the 5 of you soooooo much!!
    ����������

  • What are the babies names i know the bigger one is Luke but i can’t really pic up the other name of the baby so how do you write his name? They’re so cute❤

  • My friends who are twins, (Both girls) always used to switch classrooms, and Occasionally boyfriends, they would both get mad when there boyfriends couldn’t tell them apart.

  • I have twin cousins, they’re both name Salma and Salwa. Though it’s a common thing that the first child in twins always mentioned first, so Salma must be the oldest. Funny thing as they grew bigger, turns out the youngest one grew a bit bigger and taller. So I noted to myself that the big one must named Salwa

  • Being around them so much def helps! I went to school with twin girls since 6th grade all the way to 12 so it was soooooo easy telling them apart although they were identical because I pretty much grew up with them and I would hang with them everyday. When we got to high school everyone would always ask how I can tell them apart and I never knew how to explain it but there was definitely a difference! Lol

  • 11:43 my mom had to do that too. Strangerly enough even though Iam younger i can tell them better appart on baby photos than my parents or they themselfs ever could.

  • But all the things you told us about the differences between L and Z are only distinctive when you see both of them. But how can you know who is who when you see only one of the boys? So youcan’t compare?

  • I’m not a twin but anyways I just remembered something. So instead of eating one meal at an exact time every day, my mom cooks and then we just graze until 6:00 which is dinner time. So we left food on the counter a lot and for some reason since everyone calls me by my nickname which starts with an R and my sister’s name starts with an L my mom made us put my food on the right and my sister’s food on the left. ironically I’m left-handed and my sister is right-handed so it always confused us.

  • An identical twin can’t have a birthmark that the other has not neither can one be left handed while the other is right handed etc. There practically clones of each other. Their bodies are exactly the same. It’s possible though that these people are not identical twins but still twins and just look very similar. I’m friends with twins who aren’t identical and they look exactly alike only that one wears glasses and the other doesn’t. I don’t know why really but I have the feeling everyone thinks just because you’re a twin means your an identical twin.

  • I was a fraternal twin (runs on both sides) and my parents admitted they worried about how they would tell us apart once we were born, but my twin took care of that by busting through the uterus wall two months before the due date, destroying an ovary and then dying…. My mom still threw his name in when she got super angry and couldn’t grasp the right name.

  • I can’t get enough of how stinking cute they are!! Do they have umbilical hernias? My son did/still does but it’s gone down in size, 3 months old now.

  • My grandfather is a twin and the only way they were to tell them apart was who was dumber and had a big ass forehead (words my great grandmother told me) even when they died my great grandmother still couldn’t tell which one died (they were married but she is 99 so she kinda forgets)

  • my mom was a twin and in elementary school her and my aunt switched places. what my aunt didn’t tell my mom was that the day before, she had gotten in trouble and would of had to sit out on recess that day. My mom ended up having to sit through my aunts punishment

  • Over my 7 years as a nanny I have had twin boys 3 times. I knew who was who most of the time, but once in a while they would have me confused ��

  • I am an identical twin. My mom would dress me in one color, (ex. yellow) and my sister in another color (ex.green). That would help her. Also I had teeth before my sister and I had a bigger head.

  • I ate my twin baby brother when I was still a fetus.

    How I know it was a brother?
    Well apparently in my family, twins are never born on same gander but are always a boy and a girl.

    I didn’t want to share so I ate him 》=3

  • The story of the mom who could tell twins apart by the backs of their heads reminds me of my ballet teacher who could tell girls apart while they were wearing mouse costumes for the Nutcracker. Parents asked her what was the secret and she could tell who was who by our legs.

  • Its ok. I understand. I am a similar way and not even a mom lol! Also, I take mental health and catchup days too. It is okay to have one every once in a while. Also, sorry your dog decided to pee on your bed. Lol. Let’s hope my brother’s new puppy doesn’t decide to do that at any point lol. It probably sucks. Best of wishes Sophie.

  • My aunt has identical twins but identical just means if they were made in like the same uhh.. thing…I don’t want to explain.. but if you are around them a lot, you can see key differences in personalitys and looks. But other than that one of them was in the hospital for a while she she was born because one of her livers was collapsed and she wasn’t breathing when she was born so it’s not too hard to begin with

  • You guys should vlogs/post more often. Your vlogs throughout a normal day are fun to watch ����also try and make sure what you’re showing is in focus. Just a little constructive criticism �� You guys seem like great loving parents ��

  • My parents didn’t create their own methods to tell us apart,luck did
    When I was born,I had a massive birthmark on my forehead and it was bright red. It’s shrunk down by now and has lost a lot of it’s color,but it’s still quite noticeable.
    I get asked if my brithmark is a bug bite or some sort of pimple more often than someone asks me and my twin who’s older
    Which my twin,KelseyI’m Kaylee, is older by two minutes and she won’t let me forget it.

  • What position you do? Hahahah! Get it! Cause you like fucking around guys and now you’re trapped with twins! Are you happy that you have to wake up 2:00 AM every day to stop you’re ugly children from crying ���������� you nasty bitch

  • I’m not a twin but me and my sister look so much a like our friends family teachers and strangers calls us twins and each others names we kept trying to tell people that we are sisters not twins but when we got older we just accepted it

  • Twin sister of a boy. To the left of our house, twin boys. To the right of our house, twin girls. I don’t know how this happened. It just did.

  • My twin sister was this fat baby, then I was this tiny nugget. That’s how they knew. There were birthmarks and my little sister has two colored eyes, but mainly our size.

    My sister hates her middle name and kept trying to convince me that her name was my name, and my name was her name. My parents never confused us because that’s this huge water melon, then a bitty peanut next to her. Pictures are easy to tell until we reach toddler years. Of course we had personalities by then (I was this self centered bitch while my sister was a cuddle bug) but pictures are impossible unless my sister is making a dumb face. Some pictures my parents can’t tell, but I was old enough to remember. I may have been 2 or 3, but fire trucks are better then McDonalds CHANGE MY MIND!!!

  • what is the background song you always play when you’re not talking but just showing what you guys are you to? It’s like “i love you” over and over again? I want to find that full song haha

  • Im not an identical twin but my sister is 2 years younger than me and as adults most people cant tell us apart if they havent known us for a long time. We work at the same place too so all our coworkers will call me by her name and vice versa so we just respond to either or. Sometimes when me and my sister are both standing behind the register regular customers will do a double take. Sometimes customers will try to finish a conversation they were having with her the other day. It used to really bother me when it would happen as teens but its just funny now

  • Can you make a challenge both of you have to talk the same thing like thinking in your mind you have to actually say the same thing at the same time for 24 hours

  • I am an identical twin. When we were babies, they could tell us apart by a birthmark on my sisters head. On the baptism, my mom held me and my dad held my sister. She said “this is klara” and my dad said ”no, thats Tuva” and everyone in the church started to laugh. They finally saw tuvas (my sisters) birthmark lol

  • Have two sister who are 3 years apart but look almost exactly the same. Even now (One is a punk, plaid shirts, leather chokers shoulder length black-purple hair. The other is a complete girly girl, long brunette hair skinny Jean’s and prancy tops) they still get confused for eachother

  • If I had identical twins I would just get them a golden bracelet with their name on it, me and my brother had one (we’re not twins)..we’re portuguese and I know for a fact almost every portuguese person (no matter if poor or rich) owns a gold bracelet with their name on it, it’s kind of a tradition (either a gift from the parents themselves or the godparents) and I really thought it was more spread around the world but I guess not, since parents really be out there marking their kids’s feet (???) lol I have kept the few bracelets I got and hey if you don’t wanna keep it as memory, you can always sell it!

  • Tbh I hope I have twins. Only I would use bracelets/jewelry to tell them apart. As babies they’ll get elastic ankle bracelets and then I’ll get them silver bracelets with their initials or a colored charm on them. Or even give one silver and the other gold. Since it’s harder for a toddler or little kid to remove a lobster clasp bracelet on their own.

  • lol this reminds me of the tv gravity fall where the other twin was a surprise and they only had 1 name prepared so they just called both of them Stan. that would not help matters in the slightest if they had been identical.

  • Can you make a challenge both of you have to talk the same thing like thinking in your mind you have to actually say the same thing at the same time for 24 hours

  • My friends are twin so how I tell them apart is one plays the flute the other plays clarinet, and the flute player has smaller framed glasses than the clarinet. Also clarinet is more tomboy while flute is more girly

  • Though I’m not identical, me and my brother looked verryyy similar as babies. For some reason my brother always looked mean and rude and I was always happy, so that’s probably why.

  • They aren’t twins but my dad has a picture of his brother James who passed away in a car accident, and if you put an picture of my dad in his 20s they look exactly the same

    We also have a picture of his sister, who also passed in an accident, next to my elementary school picture and we look shockingly similar

  • 9:53 can relate.
    i am an indentical twin and we have similar personalities i guess. We have the same initials and we both having our names begin with J. to this day my mom gets our names confused at times and me and my sister just end up responding to whatever name.
    especially since my parents told us that they are not sure if our names is our actual names cause they got us confused at some point and just winged it until my sister developed a birthmark above her lip. sooo yeahh is my name really my name? i have no clue
    (also to the last reddit post. my parents didnt plan my name out and just got my name off the end credit of a tv show they were watching at the hospital and just chose it cause it began with the letter J)

  • My two Aunts are identical twins, and when I was little, I could not tell them apart. But now that I’m older, I can tell the difference between them by their personality and the way they talk. They may both wear black, but one has curly hair, and the other always has her hair up in a bun. Their names are Mona and Lisa.

  • Haha Malakai sounds like my 2nd baby. Hes pretty chill until hungry or tired and then all of a sudden out of nowhere he will just screammmmmm! So so loud and startles me every night since hes right next to our bed in the cot haha. Your boys are all so gorgeous!

  • I knew a pair of identical twins girls when I was a kid. One was a huge tomboy with short hair and the other was a huge girly horse girl. Very easy to tell them apart.

  • Don’t know if anyone else sees it but zeke when he makes a certain face he has a spot on his forehead that’s darker that’s how I tell them apart

  • My twin and I aren’t identical and look very different. It took the neighbors years to know who was who. I had glasses at the time and she didn’t. I had different colored hair because I dyed it. We even have different colored eyes. They never could fully tell us apart.

  • The way you two are handling Co-parenting is honestly amazing, parenting is hard in general, even more as teens, as a couple or not. It’s inspiring to see how great of parents you guys are!

  • I am a fraternal twin but when me and my brother were younger both of us had long hair and looked almost Identical because potato faces. Now hes 6’2″ and gets mistaken for 20 while Im 5’6″ and still get called 12. Ive had doctors ask whether he was over 18 or not because if he was he would need a visitors badge to visit me while I have my doctor confused that Im a Junior in Highschool and not a 7th grader.

  • I can’t express enough how happy it makes me to see how well you guys co parent. You co parent better than my parents ever did my entire life!!

  • Have friends that are twins they look so much like each other.

    The way I,tell them apart is that one of them have a beauty mark on the side of their face. �� LOL

  • I’m in 1:07 so I don’t know if you have said this but on the left side of Alex left eye there’s a mole so that’s how I tell you guys apart

  • In pictures, my mom and dad arranged us with my sister on the left and me on my right. Or the other way around. I can’t remember. But after age 3 it was easier to tell us apart, especially since I always wore overalls or pants since i hated dresses and skirts.
    The way they told us apart physically was because of two birthmarks: i have a triangle-shaped mark on my arm and my sister didn’t. She also has a large black mark on her leg where I don’t.
    I will say this though, right at our birth, the nurse mixed up our names on the name tags. So I’ve been using my sister’s name and she mine ever since.

    EDIT: If i ever have identical twins, i think it would be fun to give them anagram names. Their names share the same letters, but are rearranged differently to distinguish them. Their names can be similar but different in that way.

  • My baby cousins are fraternal twins (boy and girl) but when they were babies if they had diapers on I just didn’t know. Eventually they started looking a lot different. And have complete opposite personalities so that helped like from around first birthday to now XD. Even my sister and I who are 15 months apart i can’t fucking figure out who is who on pictures cause we look too much alike XD my sister came home once telling me she saw a girl on the bus who was convinced she was talking to me the whole time XD
