A LESBIAN couple has told how strangers awkwardly assume that the pair are mother and daughter – although there is only one year between them.
Whitney Bacon-Evans, 33, and her wife Megan, 34, said that they are constantly left embarrassed, and even insecure when strangers assume that Megan is Whitney’s mum.
One of the more awkward situations the couple have encountered was when Whitney answered the door and the delivery man asked if Whitney’s mother was home.
However, the couple from Windsor, Berkshire, are working as full-time influencers, and have started using these “awkward misconceptions” for funny content.
Popular on TikTok, the pair have racked up a whopping 1.8 million likes and 90k followers on the platform, where they post under their joint account @whatwegandidnext.
LADbible reported how Whitney speaks about the embarrassment of being mistaken for her wife’s daughter.
“I’m a 33-year-old woman, I want to look like a woman,” she said
“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.”
The 33-year-old, who married Megan in September 2017 in Palm Springs, California, says she feels bad for her wife, who is often upset by the comments as they are made as many as five times a week.
“I feel for Megan 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’.”
Megan said being mistaken for mother and daughter upsets and embarrasses her.
“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,” she said.
“That’s when I got really down about it because we had all these people freaking out about it on TikTok,” added Megan.
In one of their most recent posts, titled “Mommy Sorry” the couple makes fun of people’s misconceptions, saying: “When we’re wife & wife & only 13 months apart… but people think we’re mother and daughter.”
The post has more than 57k views and has been met with a range of comments.
“Really? That’s hilarious girls” commented one person.
Another said: “Bahaha that’s absolutely ridiculous. But this is funny.”
Relating to their situation, a third said: “This happens with me and my girlfriend. I find it hilarious as she is the mummy.”
Elsewhere in relationships, I get abuse in the street for my age gap relationship – people think my man is my GRANDAD.
And see I met the love of my life when I was 18 & she was 71 – we couldn’t deny the chemistry despite the 53 year age gap.
And this woman revealed she’s dating her step-brother after fancying him for years – but their parents won’t be happy.
