Rise to Fame

In time, the channel grew and these days, they get thousands of views on each of their videos. The most watched video on their channel is ‘Baby Boy's Birth Vlog! | Landon Has Landed’, with 6.5 million views.
After creating her personal channel in February 2016, she posted the first video there about a week later.

Keren Swanson was born on November 18, 1992, in Griffin, Georgia, to John Alfred Swanson and Catherine Swanson. She is the youngest of the three daughters of her parents. Her older sisters are Catherine and Mary. She also has an older half-sister named Melissa from one of her mother’s previous relationships. When she was three years old, her parents divorced. She has stated that while her parents loved each other, there were several issues in their marriage. The biggest of them was her paternal grandmother’s Alzheimer’s disease, which had turned her violent. Keren’s mother increasingly felt the house to be unsafe for her and her children and eventually gave her husband an ultimatum. She told him that either he would put his mother in a nursing home or she would leave with her children. Keren’s father refused to shift his mother and they subsequently divorced.
Catherine then moved to Florida with her children to stay at her mother’s place. She later remarried and moved Keren and her siblings to Orlando. After that relationship did not work out, they returned to live with Keren’s grandmother.
Catherine eventually managed to get her own place and relocate her family there. In the ensuing few years, she would move her family from one place to another because of the rising rent. Keren attended school in Orlando and during her freshman year, she met Khoa for the first time. However, her relationship with her father was deteriorating at the same time. He stopped calling and sending letters to her. John had been suffering from emphysema since he was in his 30s. Their relationship would never mend. He passed away on March 22, 2016. Keren’s relationship with her mother had its own issues as well. However, it seems to have gotten better over the years.
Keren attended the University of Central Florida.
According to Keren, she and Khoa fell in love almost instantly. They began dating and it was an on-again, off-again relationship for several years. She suffered a miscarriage the first time she became pregnant with her and Khoa’s child. On September 26, 2015, their oldest son, Jackson, was born. He was followed by Landon, who was born on January 31, 2017. Their youngest, another son whom they named Sutton, was born on August 16, 2018. The family still resides in Orlando, Florida.
They have been together for over a decade. Khoa proposed to her on December 6, 2014, with a ring he bought from Craigslist. In December 2017, he proposed to her once more, this time with an actual engagement ring.
