‘People mistake mum for my twin and it’s ruining sex life – men get intimidated’

A woman who looks identical to her mum revealed how they're often mistaken for twins – despite their 33-year age gap.

Catherine Galasso-Vigorito, 56, and her daughter Gabriella usually turn heads when they're out and about.

The pair bond over matching outfits, similar makeup looks and even entering the same competitions together.

But their inseparable connection has caused issues in their family with Gabriella's siblings, Lauren, 24, and Sophia, 18, not accepting.

The mum-of-three claimed their resemblance has even caused issues for the 23-year-old's love life.

Many people are often "intimidated" by their closeness.

Gabriella said: "My mum is very protective over me.

"It's caused some problems [in relationships] because she wants me to always hang out with her – no one else.

"My mum only wants me to love her. When I have boyfriends, mum says we are in the 'love triangle'.

"So the relationship is with me, my mum and my man. It's very unconventional, but this is how it is with us.

"Boys have no idea what they are in for. Luckily, my ex-boyfriend was very accepting of our similarities and close relationship.

"Once, he popped over to see me and had to do a double take when mum walked in wearing the exact same outfit as me."

Speaking about her sisters, Gabriella added: "My siblings don't like it and they won't join in at all – we call them the 'simple sisters'.

"My mum and I like to stand out, but they don't like pageantry and instead, try to blend in with everyone else."

The pair often go viral on TikTok with their twin-like look and one video racked up over 17million views.

In the clip, Gabriella can be seen dancing and squatting down, before transforming into Catherine, showing their similarities.

Users flocked to the comments section to share their reactions, with many left shocked.

One said: "She could be your sister! You are both gorgeous!"

Another added: "I'm so jealous of how you and your mum are so close and cute."

Gabriella, from California, US, admitted her numbers go up when her mum is in her clips.

Now Catherine, a former Miss Connecticut USA, is training her daughter to follow in her footsteps with the hopes of being crowned Miss USA and Miss Universe.

While she's eager for her daughter to win the crown, she's hoping pageantry will teach her how to be persistent in life and to never give up her dreams and goals.

Gabriella added: "I hope to follow in her legacy.

"I have been competing since I was 19 and I've placed as a top five finalist, but I'm not giving up on my dream to follow in mama's footsteps and bag the same title she landed.

"I was thrilled when mum became my coach and used her experience to help me prepare. She was such a great support and gave me lots of tips.

"I love being mum's twin, it makes me feel really great. She is so beautiful and I look up to her – she's my biggest inspiration."

Catherine loves their special bond and finds it complimentary being mistaken for her daughter's sister.

The published author concluded: "I find it very complimentary, being confused as her sister.

"We are both curly hair girls and when we do photo shoots together, Gabriella always does my hair and makeup for me. I've always matched our outfits with the girls since they were born and it's helped build our bond.

"It brings us closer together and I would recommend it for any mother and daughter. She's my twin and my best friend."
