The Fountain of Youth: Mom and Her Twins – Which is the Mother?

And Instagram photo challenging everyone to figure out who's the mom caused a fun "Internet Firestorm".  I wanted so bad to leave everyone guessing, but I couldn't be so cruel.

So take a guess first, then read on to get this answer to this mystery that has caused more controversy and debate on Social Media than Donald Trump on a bad day………..

When Kaylan Mahomes posted a recent car selfie with her twin, Kyla, and their mother, the social media world went into confusion. The caption by the high schooler read, "Mom, twin and me."

But because all three share the same youthful glow — it looks more like a picture of triplets — everyone was trying to figure out which one is the mom. Since it was posted January 28 the photo has been retweeted more than 18,000 times and received more than 29,000 likes.

Some Twitter users have shared it along with the hashtag #blackdontcrack, an expression that refers to African-Americans whose smooth skin makes them look younger than their age. After seeing how much success their selfie garnered, the family created an Instagram page to share more images of the trio, who live in Indianapolis.

But the big question remained: Which young-looking lady is the mom? In an interview aired Friday on HLN, the trio put speculation to rest by revealing that the twins' mother, Tina, appears to the far left in the first photo above.

(…and that's mom at the left on the photo directly below, the other photos, I honestly don't know!!!!
I think they are intentionally trying to throw us off by swapping that red and white striped shirt 🙂 )

Asked by Christi Paul how she stays so well-preserved with two 16-year-old daughters, Mom broke down her methods. "I try to drink a lot of water, I try to stay stress free," the 35-year old said. "I just focus a lot on emotional inner beauty."

(below) one thing I'm leaning from observing more of their photos, is mom is much shorter than the daughters

The family said they're mistaken for triplets "all the time." "Even people who I know personally still don't know who's the mommy," Kaylan told HLN. The pic was snapped when Mom was picking the girls up from school; Kaylan shared it with a friend and it went viral quickly thereafter.

Even before the big reveal, the family's second Instagram post offered a crucial clue. The post
[
on Kaylan's Instagram feed] and on [Kaylan's Twitter Page] is a video of one of the ladies holding a camera while the three pose for a picture. Then they all erupt into laughter when one of them apparently realizes she was actually being videotaped. The video's caption reads, "When your mom thinks it's a picture … lol #whosthemom?"

Can't really tell, who the mother is, but I bet she is on the middle.  Just a wild guest and I am not really sure about it.

Hey Paolo,

See, I guessed the total opposite in that the one in the middle looks the youngest to me. But as I say in the article, the mother on the left of the first pic, the others is more confusing. I think they are playing a fun game with us all by swapping that red and white striped shirt.

But if you’re young looking, I guess you can play that game.

Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment….
