A mum blessed with good genes says she is frequently mistaken for her teenage daughter’s twin.

As she looks so young, Nina Dixon, 31, claims she was asked for ID when buying a hamster.

People are surprised when they learn the woman has a 15-year-old daughter, Millie, an 11-year-old son Keaton and a 10-month-old Harmony.

The student nurse’s youthful looks mean she has to take her ID on every night out and at a parents’ evenings she was mistaken for one of the pupils.

Nina, from Darwen, Lancashire, said: “People think I’m Millie’s sister all the time and now my son has shot up it’s happening with him too.

“I went to buy a hamster for my son a few years ago and the assistant asked if a parent was with us.

“I laughed it off saying I was their mum, but he persisted to ask me for ID as he didn’t believe me.

“I’ve had to drive back to get my ID for a glue gun before.

“It is frustrating but other times it can be flattering to know I still look young.

“My mum has always looked great for her age, so I think it runs in the family.”

Nina struggled with negative comments after she fell pregnant and had her daughter in May 2007.

She said: “People said that I wouldn’t amount to anything. It was hard to hear and stayed with me a long time.”

But Nina took to being a mum and had her second child, Keaton, in February 2011.

Now Nina has a baby girl, Harmony Nelson, with her partner, Jacob Nelson, 27, a business development manager.

She said: “People are always shocked when I say I have a 15 and 11-year-old as they say I look in my early 20s.

“When Keaton was just seven and in year three other parents thought I was a pupil too.

“I think people think I’m young because I’m very petite – I’m a size six, 5ft 1, and have size two feet. I do look like a little girl sometimes.

“When I’m with my mum, Caroline, 68, and the kids, people think we’re all her kids. It can be frustrating but mostly I see the positives.”
