Even before she was born, baby Halston Blake Fisher had an enviable social media following of over 112,000 Instagram subscribers. Now, at the tender age of five weeks, she has over 380,000 followers and is already working with commercial partners. Undeniably, her success is linked to that of her older twin sisters, two-year-olds Taytum and Oakley who have 2.6 million Instagram followers. While her parents' individual Instagram channels maintain a modest following, the family’s YouTube channel boasts in excess of three million subscribers, all of which translate into lucrative commercial deals.
