A 22-year-old man has posted pictures of himself and his mother that have gone viral, with many unable to believe they are mum and son.
When 22-year-old Jonathan Nguyen from LA shared a picture posing with his mum, he never expected it to go viral news.com.au reports.
Jonathan’s followers were shocked to discover that the youthful, attractive woman in his pictures wasn’t his girlfriend, but that the photos instead showed mother and son!
Jonathan says the secret to his mum’s youthful appearance is pretty simple, with ‘lots of fruit and working out every day’ part of her regime.
“She works out every day and won’t eat any processed foods,” he told his followers.
While Jonathan can’t deny that the picture does look more like a couple than a mum and son, he says it can be awkward when he catches his peers checking her out.
“Having a young Asian mum is great until you see someone your age shooting their shot at her,” he admitted.
Age Is Just A Number
While Jonathan didn’t reveal his mum’s exact age, saying she is ‘in her 40s’, the post received unprecedented attention, getting over 14000 likes and nearly 8000 comments.
“Your mum looks like your sister – what’s her secret?” one Facebook user asked.
“Woah she’s beautiful – thought she was your girlfriend!” said another.
