Lookalike mum and daughter 30 years apart!
A 60-year-old woman is still counting her blessings as she says she is still being compared to her daughter, despite the 30-year age gap.
Dawn and Cher, both from Florida, USA, say they share clothes and have been best friends ever since Cher started her younger years.
The daughter says they first started becoming doppelgangers when she reached her teen years.
“I was fifteen when people started thinking we looked similar. I used to want my mum to look like a typical mum but as I got older, I started to appreciate what we had,” Cher said.
“As my mum looked so young and acted young, we became friends too and she even came to my bachelorette party.”
Now the pair are so alike, Cher says her husband, Jared, mixes them up all the time.
“One time, me and mum were wearing the same coloured outfit. As we both have long dark hair, we look similar from behind,” Cher said, going on to explain her hubby smacked his mother-in-law on the bum.
Dawn said she’s thrilled to look like her daughter, saying it is a “huge compliment”.
Maintaining her complexion has not been an easy feat, but the 60-year-old says she owes it all to a plant-based diet, good skincare, plenty of sleep and lots of water
“Age is just a number. Just because we’re getting older, it doesn’t mean we have to act it. Positive thoughts are key,” she said.
The duo have 75,000 collective followers on Instagram and they’ve written a book together, called A Bond That Lasts Forever.
“The book is a collection of hard-earned wisdoms about how to create the mother-daughter relationship of your dreams,” Dawn said.
