Danielle Cohn is an Instagram personality who is known for keeping her age a secret from her 3.4 million Instagram followers. Cohn often makes vlogs with her boyfriend, Mikey Tua. She is also a singer and released the music video to her song “Little Like Paradise,” in March 2018.
Cohn is believed to be about 15 years old, according to various media outlets, including YourTango. Her age is becoming more controversial after she uploaded a photo of a maybe-baby bump on Instagram and made claims that she and Tua got married. Some Instagram users have been posting nasty comments on Cohn’s recent photos, slamming her for being too young to get married and have a child.

Despite the controversy surrounding Cohn’s age, she does refer to herself as a “15-year-old actress, model, social media sensation, and recording artist” on the About section of her YouTube page.
“Dani, who began posting on Musical.ly under the social media handle @DanielleCohn, is constantly on the top 10 of the leaderboard on Musical.ly and has an average of 3-4 million views from her fans daily. Her Musical.lys have received 1.9 billion hearts. She also has a large Instagram presence with 3 million followers,” the description reads in part.

However, the internet is convinced that Cohn is lying about her age and that she’s actually a few years younger — perhaps as young as 13.
Cohn has contradicted this theory — without actually proving her age — at one point, Cohn responded asking, “Do I look 11?
