We’ve seen enough of those ‘we’re always getting mistaken for sisters!’ headlines to take them with a generous pinch of salt.
Often, what they actually mean is, we get mistaken for sisters in really dark rooms, from behind, when you’re squinting a bit.
But, in this case, we think Wendy Ida makes a valid point.
The 64-year-old Californian grandmother, who’s mum to 41-year-old Sky, says people often think they’re sisters when they’re out, and we can totally believe it.
She started going to the gym when she was 43, after ending an abusive relationship which left her with low self-esteem. Today, she is a top fitness trainer and life coach in LA.
‘I’m 64 and in the best shape of my life,’ she says. ‘When I say how old I am people don’t believe me and want to see my driving licence. People say I look like I’m in my early thirties. I had someone aged 22 think I was their age.
‘And whenever me and Sky are together people mistake us for sisters. It happens so often.’
