In the video, the twins tell the camera that most people know they’re gay but that there is one more person they need to tell: their dad. The twins are incredibly nervous while the phone rings and they make small talk with their dad. When they finally tell him, their dad’s response is “I love you both. You’re living your lives, and that’s all you can do in life is live it.” The video later went viral, gaining more than 19 million views as of July 2015 and earning the boys, along with their father, an interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
On February 16, 2015, they announced via a YouTube video that they were both joining the upcoming horror-comedy TV anthology series Scream Queens after having some meetings with one of the creators, Ryan Murphy.Source That same month, Austin and Aaron signed with Wilhelmina Models in Los Angeles.
Aaron revealed on Twitter that he is currently dating fellow Wilhelmina model, Travis Bryant.

However, Austin was tagged in a photo on Facebook that says otherwise. Not much is known about the mystery boy. The caption read: bright lights-late nights-gay rights. The photo has since been taken down from public view.
