A 25-year-old has a lot of people on the internet doing a double take after she posted a photo of herself with a photo of her mom at the same age, and they look identical.
Shaylyn Gibson is from Massachusetts but is currently living in Italy, she told BuzzFeed News.
Gibson said her sister had sent her a few old photos last week, but when she opened one of them she noticed something hilarious.
“When my sister sent me that photo I had a good laugh because at the time I wearing the exact same thing, so I took a photo from the same angle and thought the result was pretty good,” she said.
She decided people on Reddit may get a kick out of how similar they looked, so she posted it before she went to bed. It has since been viewed more than 4 million times.
“I posted it to Reddit because I thought it was interesting, sweet, and a little nostalgic…the kind of nostalgic you feel when looking at old photos of your parents,” Gibson said of the photo. “I never imagined it would go viral.”
Gibson said that she doesn’t think she is normally identical with her mom, but it was more the photo angle and the outfit that made them look so alike.
She added that the comments have ranged from flattering to creepy, but she has loved the people who told her she got her nose from her dad.
Gibson said that the fact the photo has gone so viral has been really bizarre, saying she never expected to get so many comments on it.
