Moms Who Inspire: Chin Twins

Ever Searched on YouTube for water birth videos?

Reading Time: 8 minutes

When I created our Moms Who Inspire series, the Chintwins were the first women I wanted to interview. I’ve known one half of them, Crissy Barker (wife to photographer Nigel Barker) for two years now and every time I talk to her I am pulled in by her positive presence. Her sister Kimmy, who I met last year, couldn’t be more similar (aside from the fact that they are identical twins). What I love most about Crissy and Kimmy is how genuinely sweet they are. They are constantly interested in bringing more happiness, ease and kindness to everyone they encounter.

With five kids between the two of them, these women are inspirational for more reasons than I can name. As a new mom myself, I’ve always been in awe of how these sisters balance motherhood, career and family. Although they are over 1,050 miles a part, Kimmy in Alabama and Chrissy in NYC, they remain close to each other through their inspirational Instagram account Chintwins that has over 50,000 followers. Through Instagram they share their passions for yoga, health and parenthood.

What I came to realize after hearing their story is that Chintwins goes much deeper than just a fun instagram account where they can share beautiful photos. It’s a place that helps them feel more connected to each other and their followers. Growing up, their parents divorced when they were 4 years old, which had them spending most of their childhood going back and forth between houses, states and schools. Crissy and Kimmy were each other’s only constant.

During our interview I couldn’t help but feel at home with these women. When I asked them question #5 (What do you admire most about your sister as a mom?) I sat back and listened to them speaking kindly about one another, each one saying something that the other didn’t know that they admired about them. To be in the presence of such love and openness between siblings was something truly beautiful to witness and it’s why I’m so excited to share their interview with you below.
