An ‘ageless’ 37-year-old mother has become a viral sensation thanks to her uncanny resemblance to her 18-year-old daughter – as she reveals people mistake the pair for ‘twins’ almost ‘every day’.
Danielle Sylvester and her daughter Thyri Frazier have quickly shot to fame on TikTok thanks to their near-identical looks, which have left millions of viewers in awe – with some joking that the teenager is actually her mother’s ‘clone’.
In one recent video, which garnered an impressive 5.4 million views after being posted by Danielle, the mother-daughter duo joked that ‘everyone says they look like twins’, adding in the caption: ‘We literally get this every day.’
Modeling matching black-and-denim outfits, Danielle and Thyri are seen poking fun at themselves by mouthing along to an audio clip featuring Kylie Jenner and her daughter Stormi, in which the reality star tells her child: ‘Stormi! You look like mommy baby!’
The sassy toddler then replies: ‘I hate it,’ prompting her mother to chastise her with a shrill: ‘Storm storm!’
