Mum And Daughter Say People Confuse Them For Sisters Despite 30-Year Age Gap

Mum And Daughter Say People Confuse Them For Sisters Despite 30-Year Age Gap

A mother and daughter look so much alike that many people mistake them for sisters.

Despite their 30-year age gap, Dawn Hubsher, 60, from Florida, US, is the spitting image of her 30-year-old daughter Cher.

Speaking about their likeness, the pair said they had always resembled one another.

Cher said: "People mistake us for sisters all of the time. One time, mum's friend was talking to her thinking she was me."

Even Cher's husband Jared Gopman, 30, has mistaken Dawn for Cher in the past.

Cheer said: "One time, me and mum were wearing the same coloured outfit. As we both have long dark hair, we look similar from behind.

"My husband went up to my mum and smacked her on the butt thinking that it was me.

"Every guy I've dated would always say, 'I know what you'll look like in thirty years,' and they were happy to see I wouldn't change much.

But while Cher says she used to feel a bit weird having such a youthful-looking mum when she was younger, she soon grew to love it and just sees Dawn as 'one of the girls'.

She said: "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.

"As my mum looked so young and acted young, we became friends too and she even came to my bachelorette party."

As you would imagine, Dawn is pretty chuffed to have managed to keep her youthful looks.

And she has now offered her tips to maintain a youthful appearance.

Dawn said: "Exercise, a good plant-based diet, good skincare, sleeping, and drinking water are all key in maintaining a youthful appearance.

"Age is just a number. Just because we're getting older, it doesn't mean we have to act it. Positive thoughts are key."

Adding: "Having a daughter helps me to stay young because Cher keeps me up to date with the latest trends and styles.

"We're the same size too so we can raid each other's closets and as we look so similar, what looks good on one, usually looks good on the other.

"Having your daughter as your best friend is truly wonderful because you know you will always have each other's best interests at heart. Looking alike is just a fun bonus."

The pair have now written a book together called A Bond That Lasts Forever chronicling their journey.
