- A 29-year-old mother of a single child has been mistaken for the internationally-recognised reality star and supermodel Kendall Jenner
- Teona Chachua started a beauty blog in 2018 and since then Kendall's fans have flooded her comments section
- She often gets mistaken for the 24-year-old reality star but she says it has been an amazing confidence boost for her
A mom who operates an online blog often has people staring in disbelief. She is an almost the spitting image of Kendall Jenner.
Teona Chachua, a resident of Georgia, USA, had no idea that she shared such an uncanny resemblance with the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star.
Briefly.co.za learned that it came to her attention when she began a beauty blog in 2018 and had her comments section flooded by fans of Kendall's.
“As soon as I started my videos and posted pictures, people started commenting, saying that I look like her,” Teona said. “It’s nice when you get compared to someone as beautiful as she is.”
2018 also happened to be the year that Forbes declared that Kendall was the highest-paid supermodel.
However, they are not identical. Teona, a 29-year-old mom of one child, is shorter than Kendall by 20cm, but still gets mistaken for the 1.7m-tall 24-year-old reality star.
“Sometimes people double-take when they look at me in the street and sometimes even say ‘Oh my god, you look like Kendall’.”
Teona has embraced the idea that she looks like Kendall and described it as a confidence boost, it has become an inside joke in the family that the mom and supermodel are related, according to News24.
“I do get a confidence boost out of it but I don’t personally think I look exactly like Kendall, but that’s because I know that I’m quite short and she’s so tall.
“I get a lot of comments especially from her fans who actually think it’s her, and my family joke that we are related somehow. It’s a bit strange for me as well because at the end of the day I’m just a normal girl,” she added.
“When I just post pictures or videos people always compare me to Kendall or Emily Ratajkowski and some people even tell me that I look like Sandra Bullock.”
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Forbes announced its list of billionaires in 2019 and Kylie Jenner, Kendall's sister, was named as the world's youngest self-made billionaire. This is thanks to her three-year-old cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics.
Kylie is the half-sister of reality TV stars, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, which is why many people feel she doesn't deserve this title.
According to a lot of people, the 21-year-old is not self-made, she was born into wealth and 'had it easy'.
Briefly.co.za also reported that Kim Kardashian's husband American rapper Kanye West has said that he is no longer supporting US President Donald Trump's re-election bid, adding he entered the presidential race to win it.
The wealthy singer who used to be a great supporter of Trump publicly announced that he would be running for the presidency in 2021.
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that rumour has it reality star Khloe Kardashian is not only back with her baby daddy Tristan Thompson but she is also engaged to the basketball player.
According to reports, the 36-year-old decided to give her 29-year-old partner another chance and try mending their relationship.
A source close to the family told People magazine Khloe and the father of her child were isolating together in a mansion tucked away in California’s leafy suburbs.
