As a long-time fan, I‘ve loved watching Bailey grow from a talented kid goofing around on YouTube into a hugely successful media star and influencer!
Early Life and Family
Born on December 31, 1999 in Utah, Bailey McKnight entered the world destined for stardom! She was raised in a bustling household as one of eight siblings. I remember watching some of her first vlogs showing off her big fun family. Even as a young teen, her artistic flair, humor and relatability shone through.
Rise to YouTube Fame with Twin Sister Brooklyn
In 2009, Bailey and her twin Brooklyn began uploading videos to their YouTube channel Brooklyn and Bailey just for fun. The 10-year-old sisters filmed DIY tutorials, comedy skits and sisterly advice.
I discovered their channel a few years later when a video of them parodying beauty gurus went viral. Their videos were so creative and fun! I‘ve been hooked ever since.
Over the years, Brooklyn and Bailey amassed millions of dedicated fans like me. They vlogged about their lives, school, friends and family. Bailey especially stood out with her acting skills in hilarious impersonations and challenge video pranks.
By the time they graduated high school in 2018, their channel had over 5 million subscribers and 2 billion views! Bailey and Brooklyn‘s meteoric success proved their universal appeal.
Collaborations with Brooklyn
While Bailey has branched out on her own, she continues to collaborate with twin sister Brooklyn. They film new videos together featuring twin challenges, advice and reminiscing over their years on YouTube.
In 2021, the sisters even competed on the Food Network‘s "Holiday Wars" to build a Christmas-themed cake pop display. Their easy banter and creativity shone through!
It‘s been amazing watching these twins grow up together in the spotlight while constantly supporting each other.
Other Media Ventures
In 2017, Bailey joined the cast of the gymnastics-themed series "Chasing Destiny" on AwesomenessTV‘s YouTube channel. This demonstrated her talents extended beyond comedy into dramatic acting!
She has also appeared on shows like The View, Home & Family, and The Drew Barrymore Show to share beauty tips, life advice and business insights with fans.
I love seeing Bailey break into new areas of entertainment and inspire other young entrepreneurs. Her hard work is so motivating!
Expanding Her Personal Brand on Instagram and TikTok
As the Brooklyn and Bailey channel took off, Bailey branched out to grow her own following on Instagram and TikTok.
She shares lifestyle posts featuring fashion, beauty, recipes and decor. Fans feel like we get to be part of Bailey‘s world!
Her TikTok is a non-stop delight, with hilarious dances, trends and sketches. No wonder she has over 8 million followers!
Bailey even made the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in 2021, proving her status as a top Gen Z influencer. I‘m excited to see where she takes her brand next.
A huge part of Bailey‘s charm is how down-to-earth and relatable she remains, despite her fame. Her content provides an authentic peek into her real life in Utah and Los Angeles.
She films casual vlogs chatting to the camera like an old friend sharing makeup tips, apartment tours or stories about her new husband Brock.
Bailey openly discusses her passions, relationships, faith and values. It makes fans feel a genuine connection with the funny, creative and kindhearted star. We‘ve all grown up together over the past 13 years.
Giving Back to Causes She Believes In
I really admire Bailey‘s commitment to using her platform to support charitable organizations like Best Friends Animal Society, American Cancer Society and March of Dimes.
She helps raise funds and awareness for causes important to her. It shows what a big heart this YouTube star has off-camera too!
