Young mum mistaken for being teen daughter’s sister because they look so similar
A young mum has gone viral after sharing that she is often mistaken for her teen daughter’s sister – because the pair look so similar.
TikTok star Leticia Gardner shared a series of videos on her page highlighting the fact that she and her daughter really do look alike, even as if they could be the same age.
That’s in part because Leticia, 35, had her daughter when she was just 19-years-old, so the child is not even half her age.
When filmed side by side, it’s hard to tell which of the young women is the mother and which is the daughter – and it’s much easier to believe they could be sisters.
The two women are constantly praised on social media, with fans telling them how “beautiful” and “amazing” they are, as the pair often make TikTok videos together.
In one video Leticia had labelled who is the mum and who is the daughter out of the pair, with one person adding: “Thanks for the explanation, couldn’t tell which was the mom.”
In another clip, titled ‘can you guess how old I was when I had her?’, the pair dance side by side while the text ‘when people think we’re friends but we’re mother and daughter’ appears on the screen.
The video has been viewed over four million times and has received 480,000 likes and over four thousand comments.
One user, Kimbery Olguin, wrote: “Struggling, who is the mum and daughter?”
And another user also couldn’t tell, writing: “No, but like who’s the mum and who’s the daughter.”
And a third user added: “This is the first time I’ve been confused at one of these.”
Leticia has revealed on her TikTok page that she raised her eldest daughter as a single mum while still in her teens, before finding love again and tying the knot.
One of Leticia’s fans was full of praise for the young mum, writing: “Mum took good care of herself and daughter, good job – hard work pays off.”
