Early Life of the Dolan Twins
The Dolan Twins were born on December 16, 1999, in New Jersey, United States of America. They were born to Sean and Lisa Dolan. Before their parents had them, there was Cameron, who is their older sibling. The Dolan Twins are of Irish Italian descent.
The interesting thing about their birth is, Grayson was born 20 minutes after Ethan came. Both have birthmarks on their bodies. For Ethan, it is on his cheek, and for Grayson, it is on his chin. The twins have a strong relationship with each other as most twins do. They eat together, they sleep together, they go out together, they play together. They are almost inseparable.
As a kid, Grayson was super scared of escalators. If he still does today, well, we haven’t caught him screaming “I am not f**king going into that hell.” At least, not yet. As kids, they were obsessed with hockey and would do anything to see a game of hockey.
They wax lyrical about how much cheek kisses meant to them while growing up as a child.
What The Dolan Twins Hate
You know twins have almost similar tastes in everything. Fraternal twins usually have the same qualities facially, and even otherwise. What is indisputably different about them is their fingerprints.
For the Dolan Twins, they hate the same thing. As funny as this sounds, it is true. They both hate the sound of the word “moist.” Tell you what? Why these guys don’t like it, we have no idea.
Could it be cringeworthy to them because of what the word “moist” means sexually? Well, well… we leave you to be the judge of that.
What the Dolan Twins Like
The fact that they are twins does not mean they would like the same thing, but one thing they both fancy and dig is snowboarding.
The Dolan Twins Career
Since their first video on Vine, the duo has accumulated 6.4 million flowers. After seeing their success, they opened a YouTube channel that has subscribers that have grown in leaps and bounds to 11 million.
In 2016, after noticing their influence on teens, Twitter involved them in an ad campaign for the social media platform’s new stickers feature. The duo regularly drops content on YouTube. However, they go on hiatuses for months. Again, they are young folks, and sometimes the pressure to deliver gets to them.
In March 2018 for instance, the twins dropped a video where they said they needed to go on leave from YouTube to focus on other aspects of their lives. They returned in May 2018.
Popular host of NBC reality game show “The Apprentice” and QVC host Shawn Killinger, is one person whose voice you just want to keep listening to. This tells you all you need to know about her and her life as a host.
The Dolan Twins Lost Their Father
At just fifty years old, their father, Sean Dolan died from cancer on January 19, 2019. The boys were barely away from their teenage stage. As expected, this broke them. But the boys wouldn’t allow it to be the end of their journey. It must be painful losing your parents to cancer at a relatively young age. May his soul rest in peace.
In 2018, the twins teamed up with fellow YouTubers James Charles and Emma Chamberlain to form The Sister Squad. The four uploaded videos they made together simultaneously on their channels on June 19, August 28, October 31, and December 25, 2018.
