While Premier Ford consistently makes the news, he isn't the only member of the family who dominates headlines in Ontario.

Doug Ford's daughters Krista, Kayla, Kyla and Kara are also household names in this province. The sisters have found themselves in the spotlight on more than one occasion, whether it was about a name change to Kyla's cookie business or when Krista shared a controversial message about COVID-19 vaccines.

Here are six times the Ford daughters wound up in the news without any help from their father.

When Kyla Ford changed the name of her cookie shop

KyKy's Cookies & Ice Cream was not always known by that name. Up until a couple of months ago, Kyla Ford's cookie business was previously known as KyKy's Kookies, which — as several social media users pointed out — included the initials "KKK."

"The name is a play on my nickname 'KyKy'. That's it. I've never made or would make that connection and it's heartbreaking to me that some people online are doing that," Kyla told Narcity in June.

Kyla changed the name of her business ahead of opening her first storefront in Etobicoke, where she plans to sell gigantic gourmet cookies, ice cream sandwiches, cookie cake slices and more.

When all of Ford's daughters looked too alike for their iPhones

There is no denying that Premier Ford's daughters look nearly identical with their bright blonde hair and wide smiles. But, apparently, they look so much alike that a couple of them can even hack each other's iPhones.

Kyla Ford proved she looks so much like sister Kayla, that she unlocked her sister's iPhone with the FaceID feature. "I am with my little sister, who I never get to see, and she keeps grabbing my phone and unlocking it because the Apple ID recognizes her face!" Kayla said in an Instagram story, which has been pinned under the IG highlight "family."

When Kayla Ford pushed for 'natural immunity' over masks

Kayla Ford dropped a poll in her Instagram stories late last year that asked followers to choose between "health" and a mask emoji. The poll was placed over a comic-book style image with people lined up for "masks, vaccines," and a bored attendant waiting for someone to line up under "build your immune system w/ healthy diet, rest, supplementation & plenty of exercise."

Kayla spoke with Narcity about the meaning behind the post back in November.

"It's about actually taking care of yourself — building a healthy immune system through diet, lifestyle, exercise [...]; true health versus a vaccine or injection that typically contains agents of disease-causing microorganisms that medical communities believe will help people," Ford said.

The Chair of the Department of Microbiology & Immunology at McGill Dr. Donald Sheppard debunked that statement and told Narcity that Pfizer and Moderna vaccines "do not contain disease-causing microorganisms."

When Krista Ford Haynes shared a controversial anti-vax message

Krista Ford Haynes came under fire on Reddit for an IG story post she made on her private account on August 3, which involved a controversial message about the COVID-19 vaccines.

Ford Haynes read a vaccine information pamphlet out loud on Instagram, making faces at the camera while doing so.

"'The vaccines are effective, they work with your body's natural defense to develop protection against COVID-19. The vaccines cannot give you COVID-19,'" Ford Haynes said. "You might want to fact-check that."

She also capped off the video with the hashtag #mybodymychoice while shaking her head and holding the pamphlet.

When Krista Ford tweeted about staying safe in Toronto

Nearly ten years ago in 2012, daughter Krista Ford Haynes apologized for tweets regarding women's personal safety in Toronto.

According to the CBC, Krista tweeted, "Stay alert, walk tall, carry mace, take self-defence classes & don't dress like a whore" soon after Toronto police held a news conference to warn women about sexual assaults happening in a downtown neighbourhood.

Krista apologized soon after and explained that she "just want[ed] women to be safe."

When Kyla Ford shared her love for 'black market' CBD oil

Back in 2019, youngest daughter Kyla Ford promoted CBD products and posted a photo to her Instagram account of her posing with a bottle of CBD oil.

But according to the Huffington Post article, the products by Bodhi Naturals were illegal to buy within Canada. The Huffington Post reported that the posts were later deleted.

Health Canada has a robust website with all the latest information on COVID-19 vaccines and can answer any questions you may have.
