A 31-year-old mum looks so young that she often gets mistaken for her 15-year-old daughter's twin.
Nina Dixon, from Lancashire, says people mistake her for her daughter Millie's sister 'all the time'. Here she is with her other children:
She looks so young, in fact, that she still gets asked for ID, even when buying son Keaton, 11, a hamster.
“I went to buy a hamster for my son a few years ago and the assistant asked if a parent was with us." Nina says.
“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.”
Student nurse Nina had Millie when she was 16, and explained how she suffered with negativity from others during her pregnancy.
“People said that I wouldn't amount to anything,” she added.
“It was hard to hear and stayed with me a long time.”
Nina loves being a mum and had her second child, Keaton, in February 2011. She went on to have her third little one - 10-month-old baby girl Harmony - with partner Jacob last year.
“People are always shocked when I say I have a 15 and 11-year-old as they say I look in my early 20s," she says.
“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.”
And, it seems that maintaining a youthful appearance might be easier than you think.
