A St. Paul, Minn., mom and her twin babies have gone over big on TikTok — really big.

It all started in September when Alexis LaRue posted a video of herself laughing as she struggled to hold both of her then-6-month-old babies in one arm — as she had seen Maia Knight, another TikTok “twin mom,” do with apparent ease.

“It is not for the weak,” LaRue said in the video, giggling as she switched to two arms to support the babies. “I don’t know if I’m just weak or my babies are just chunky.”

Tiktokers took notice: As of Thursday, the short-and-sweet video had more than 54 million views.

And this is how the Minnesota mom became known as “The Tiny Mom.”

It’s a no for me 🤣🤣
