A 25-Year-Old And Her Mom Look Like Identical Twins In These Photos

She got it from her mama.

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."


"You can definitely tell we're related, but by no means identical," she said.


"I love my nose for exactly that reason," she said.

She added: "My favorite comment was from Reddit user gogolata12 who said 'your mom looks like she loves the person that took this picture,'" she said. "It was my dad."

"I never imagined it would explode the way it did, it's almost scary, but I'm not worried," she said. "I'm sure it'll die down in a few days."
