POP QUIZ: Who’s the Mom in This Picture?

On January 28, Kaylan Mahomes posted a family selfie, captioning it, “Mom, twin & me.” That seems like a pretty standard thing to do for high schoolers like Mahomes and her sister Kyla Mahomes, but the photo was much more remarkable than your average front-camera pic.

All three of the women look nearly identical. In fact, as CNN points out, they look like triplets.

Since it looked like the photo was taken in a car, I made an educated guess that the woman on the right was the mother, although part of me wondered if the one in black could be based on shirt selection alone. Twins dress alike sometimes, right? Maybe the ones in white were the sisters! Maybe it was a Snapchat photo and the screen was mirrored! Maybe one of the twins was learning to drive! It felt, honestly, like I was back in high school, second-guessing a multiple-choice answer on a test because I had already selected B. for the past three questions.

Kaylan’s Twitter feed is full of these confusing photos and even features a few videos, too. In fact, since the photo caught on and spread around social media, the twins and their mom have been scoring interviews on cable news, so videos of the three are abundant. As this post is being written, the family is preparing to appear on HLN News.

CNN and the moderator of this blog agreed that the woman in the black blazer was probably the mother. Nashville’s 1075 The River confirmed it after a phone call to the family.
