46-Year-Old Mum Is Constantly Mistaken For Teen Daughter's Sister

46-Year-Old Mum Is Constantly Mistaken For Teen Daughter's Sister

Cathy Arganese says that she and her daughter Jaggar are out all the time and people always think they're actually sisters

A 46-year-old mum has opened up about her experiences of frequently being mistaken for a 20-year-old - and unsurprisingly enough, she's thrilled about it.

Cathy Arganese and her 17-year-old daughter Jaggar regularly go out together and the mum says she's regularly confused for being her daughter's sister. It's something she loves.

"While I am comfortable being my age and I am still quite a traditional mum to Jaggar and my two sons, I do like looking young and modern," she said.

"I like to think I am still 20. Jaggar and I love to look glam whenever we go out. We always have our hair and make-up done and we are always in nice outfits so we do get a lot of stares when we are out together.

"People have actually even compared us to the Kardashians which made us laugh. We love to look good because it makes us feel good.

"We have an amazing relationship. We are best friends and we love to spend time together.

"We especially love going shopping in London most weekends because we have the same sense of style which is great as we can share clothes."


Jaggar agrees and it's clear that her mum's youthful outlook on life has strengthened their relationship, allowing them to share a lot of interests and hobbies.

The 20-year-old said: "My mum and I are like best friends so we always go out together.

"If we are out shopping together in London, people will say to us that we look more like sisters rather than mum and daughter.

"They're shocked when they realise that she is actually my mum.

"But I love it because my mum looks amazing.


"Apart from the colour of our hair, we look really similar and we also have a really similar sense of fashion.

"I think that makes us look even more like sisters because we are usually wearing the same style of clothing.

"She has always taught me the importance of looking my best, and we come from quite a glamorous family so it's not really a shock that people think this when they see us together."

Jaggar is a make-up artist and is delighted to have a mum so keen on looking her best.

Jaggar added: "I've always loved make-up and I think it's because - as my mum's only daughter - she has really put all that side of her into me so I want to look my best too.

"I think it has been passed down through the family as my nan loved to look her best too and slept in rollers every night.

"My mum just doesn't seem to age and I really hope I get the genes from her too so I can look as amazing as her as I get older.

"My friends always mention how pretty and stylish my mum is too.

"And my brothers get annoyed at their friends because they always make comments about my mum to wind them up."
