A US-based mom Alexis LaRue has caused quite a stir on social media after posing with her six-month-old twins - who weigh in at 21lbs (9.5 kilograms) each.

Alexis says she can't believe how fast her twin girls, Camila and Elena, are growing as they've already tripled their birth weight.

The mom had to post a TikTok video of her weighing and measuring her babies to prove that they really are as big as they look and that she wasn't editing her videos.

The mom says she's been accused of overfeeding her babies; however, Alexis swears that is not the case.  

The moms says she only cares that they develop into healthy children and for now her babies are "very healthy, happy and full of personality".
