Kordale Lewis and Kaleb Anthony
A couple who went viral thanks to Instagram? Yes, that would be Kordale Lewis and Kaleb Anthony. Their joint account featured their love story and life with Lewis’ three biological children (plus their son born in 2016). However it was all the attention on Instagram that caught the eye of Acne Studios, a Sweden-based luxury fashion house.
