Mom is accused of being ‘the nanny’ because her sons look ‘nothing like her’: ‘These are my kids, I gave birth to them’

A mom is frequently mistaken for her kids’ nanny because people say she looks “nothing like them” — and her video revealing their faces is going viral.

Molly Ann (@mollyy4nn) gained over 1.5 million views and nearly 3,000 comments when she uploaded the video to her account.

Now, just like the grocery store security camera that captured a mom nearly taking the wrong toddler home, this case of mistaken identity is going viral.

In the stitched video, Molly responds to a prompt asking parents of kids who look “nothing like them” to reveal their children’s faces.

But before she does, the mom of two jokingly welcomes viewers to the “Alliance of Mothers Who Are Mistaken for the Nanny.”

“If you too have been ID’d at child pickup more frequently than most, let us band together,” Molly writes in her caption.

She then introduces viewers to her boys — whom she jokingly refers to as “Brink” and “Johnny Tsunami,” both of which are references to Disney Channel Original Movies from the 1990s.

“Those are my kids… I gave birth to them,” she laughs.

Judging by the thousands of comments that came pouring in, TikTokers were shocked.

“What?!?!?! No way those two have the same dad or same mom,” one viewer laughed.

“Ma’am, were you even CONSULTED during the creation of these babies? Like, your husband didn’t even ask for your IDEAS on hair or nothing,” another viewer joked.

“You gotta love genetics!” wrote another viewer.
