Kordale Lewis and Kaleb Anthony are an awesome couple with a great Instagram account, seriously you should follow it.

The partners from Atlanta, Georgia have been together for six years and went viral in 2014 when they snapped themselves helping their daughters, Desmiray and Maliyah, get ready for school.

The amazingly simple picture perfectly captured family life and has received over 54,000 likes since it was posted in January 2014.

Since then, they have continued to post heartwarming images of their family which also includes their two sons, Kordale Jr. and Kaleb Jr.

Their fame has lead them to be featured in Cosmopolitan, Yahooand even featured in an ad campaign for camera manufacture, Nikon.

If that wasn't already great enough, the couple and their kids have now made history by becoming the first ever black LGBT family to feature in a major European fashion campaign.

Acne Studios, who are a fashion brand based in Sweden, approached Kaleb and Kordale, who aren't models, to star in their 2017 Fall/Winter campaign.

They were photographed by the world reknowned Inez and Vindooh, while wearing striped rugby shirts in a hotel room overlooking Central Park.

I think you'll agree that the results are a seriously cool.

According to Jonny Johansson, Acne's creative director, the family were the perfect representation of the modern day family.

I have been thinking about families for a long time.

Since Acne Studios started as a collective, we would see each other as a family back in the days.

I therefore wanted to portray households of today, in all constellations — this is how we found Kordale and Kaleb.

Johansson, who has previously used his son in ad campaigns, added:

It is also a way of highlighting that while every family is different, we all have the same love and want the best for our children.

There is no ‘normal’ family — all families are normal.
