Husband and wife mistaken for father and daughter as he's so 'bald and tall' and she's 'baby faced'

A couple is often mistaken for father and daughter because the husband is bald and tall, and the wife has a baby face.

Carolyn, a 30-year-old, and Drew Fultz, a 33-year-old, are often mistaken for father and daughter despite only having a three-year gap. She thinks it's because she is baby-faced and her husband’s bald. She also credits the mix-up to their large height difference - she is 5ft 4 whereas he is 6ft 6.

Carolyn posted a video on TikTok with them standing in the frame making a few viewers guess their age difference and others agree that they look like father and daughter. The video garnered over 18.8 million views on the social media platform.

She explains in the video that Drew started balding when he was in high school. Since the mix-up has been happening for 10 years, they aren’t bothered by it.

Carolyn added that although it usually happens more often than they realize, only a few people ask them directly. However, it occurs mostly when they meet new people who assume she is his wife as they don’t know the context.

But she admits she initially thought the mix-up would stop as she got older, but she was wrong.

She even shared an incident that happened on their honeymoon. The couple was sitting in the exit row when a flight attendant pointed out those sitting in the exit row had to be above 15 years old. Then, Drew politely let the flight attendant know that they were on their honeymoon.

Carolyn, who is also the mother of two, admits that the confusion troubled her in the beginning. But now, the couple finds it funny. She told the media that as she became older the assumption that she looks young became a compliment.
