Mum, 30, fed up as strangers think husband is her dad – despite 3-year age gap

A mum who looks younger than what she is says strangers often mistake her husband for her dad.

Carolyn Fultz, 30, has even had people assume she's babysitting her own kids who are aged eight, five and two.

She says onlookers are "shocked" she's old enough to have kids, with some suggesting the mum-of-three is 16.

And when she's with her husband Drew, 34, people have thought they're father and daughter.

Despite all this, the couple, who have been together for 10 years, only share a three-year age gap.

The parents have a large height difference with Drew towering above 5ft 4ins Carolyn at 6ft 6ins.

However, the pair are "not bothered" by the daily judgements.

Carolyn, from Arizona, US, said: "I'll be at the play park and people will think I'm the older sister or babysitter for my kids.

"I get asked all the time what school I go to.

"Just the other day the contractors working on our house presumed I was the older sister to my kids.

"People are always assuming I'm my husband's daughter too.

"There is always a moment of surprise when they find out I'm 30 and we're married."

Carolyn and Drew started dating in August 2011 and married in March 2014 before welcoming their son in November.

Throughout her life, Carolyn has received comments about looking younger than her age.

She added: "I've always looked young for my age. In middle school I looked like I was in elementary and so on.

"Now people assume I'm anywhere from 16 to 26. Sometimes they don't think I'm an adult."

While Carolyn appears young for her age, Drew is often mistaken for being in his 40s.

The mum continued: "He's not offended by it. He doesn't really care that much. We're used to the mistake all the time.

"The second we start talking and interacting with each other and the kids' people can see the dynamic.

"People are always shocked then apologetic when they find out. I get it all the time, so I tell them it's OK."

Carolyn says people thinking she is Drew's daughter doesn't bother either of them.

She went on: "He's seen me grow into and mature as a woman.

"He doesn't see me the same way people do for the first time when meeting me.

"I'm a confident, 30-year-old woman and I don't feel I need to prove anything anymore.

"If they think I'm a babysitter or daughter to my husband let them think it.

"They'd realise I'm not if they take the time to get to know me."
