A lesbian couple have revealed how strangers awkwardly mistake them for being mother and daughter. Watch the viral TikTok below:
Whitney Bacon-Evans, 33, and her wife Megan, 34, claim they are often left red-faced and sometimes insecure when the 'horrendous' mix-up makes strangers question their age.
Despite there only being a one year gap, the couple from Windsor, Berkshire have said they've been caught in many uncomfortable situations, such as delivery men asking if Whitney's 'mother is home'.
However, the pair are now working full-time as influencers and have transformed the 'embarrassing' moments into an opportunity to poke fun at themselves.
The duo have racked up over 1.8 million likes and 90,000 followers since starting their TikTok account.
Whitney, who married Megan in Palm Springs, California, US, in September 2017, said: "I'm a 33-year-old woman, I want to look like a woman.
"About a month ago, a delivery guy knocked on the door, and I answered, wearing no makeup. They asked me if my mother was home.
"I'm happy that I'm aging gracefully, but I want to at least look of age. I'm a young woman in my 30s, I don't want to look like a child.
"I feel for Megan though, because I'm sure deep down it bothers her. It is an awkward situation though, when we have to respond 'No, we're wife and wife'. It can be a real eye opener for people.
"When we go out somewhere new, it'll happen. Sometimes it happens five times a week."
Megan said: "Being mistaken for mother and daughter is embarrassing.
"There's been a few in-person experiences where it's happened but we also get comments on TikTok from people who say 'Oh my god, I thought you were mother and daughter'.
"That's when I got really down about it, because we had all these people freaking out about it on TikTok."
Some users have expressed their shock at the idea that the married couple could be mistaken for blood relatives.
One user wrote: "How can people not see what a beautiful couple you make?!"
Another added: "I was a year younger than my ex-wife and constantly got mistaken for her mother... go figure."
A third user commented: "Mother and daughter, wtf."
However, some users were able to look at the situation more for what it is, rather than what it seemed.
Someone else wrote: "You're probably 26 & 27 but you look like you could pass for 18 and 30. You're both beautiful, please don't take that bad, I love you both."
