Cara was born with a hemangiona on the side of her nose. When they were young, Kate told the girls that it was an angel kiss. She explained to them that after Cara left Heaven first, an angel with red lipstick on kissed her, and by the time she kissed Mady, her lipstick had worn off. The hemangiona went away by itself.

In an August 2013 interview with People magazine, it is revealed that Cara earns straight A's, plays basketball and lacrosse, and that her favorite subject is history.[4]

Cara and Mady celebrated their thirteen birthdays by eating at Chipotle and going home and eating cake and ice cream. Prior to this, they had a sleepover that included a total of nine girls, made pizza and cake, and ate candy. They also went to see the One Direction concert movie This Is Us, which was Mady's birthday wish, with their mother.[5]

Cara and Mady both showed silence on the Today Show out of discomfort of their mom being at the interview.
