A fun-loving mum has left people in shock after revealing she has a 19-year-old daughter - who some fans mistook for her sister. TikToker Amy-Jo Simpson has gained over a million followers by sharing entertaining videos about her life and her family. But viewers were stunned to learn she has an adult daughter, despite featuring her children in her clips.

Of course, women can be beautiful at any age, as Amy-Jo and her daughter Megan prove. But fans could not believe their age gap, as many had thought the gorgeous pair were sisters. The proud mum confirmed the truth in a video shared to @amyjosimpson, shortly after posting a clip of the duo strutting their stuff.
