The world of social media went wild when Jamie Laing shared a video of his fiancée's mum - and we totally get it.

Sophie Habboo (sometimes known as 'Habbs') and Jamie, who met whilst both part of the Made in Chelsea crew, took to Instagram over the weekend to play a joke on Sophie's mum, Sarah.

The 'Molly Mae prank' started out on TikTok when Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague created a 30 second video of her wishing a friend happy birthday but made silly faces throughout the video, leaving boyfriend Tommy Fury in total confusion.

But it wasn't the prank itself that had Jamie's followers talking, it was Sophie's mum, Sarah. Fans of the couple filled the comments section with compliments and statements of disbelief that this was Sarah was Sophie's mum and not her sister.

One follower declared, "No way is that her mum , looks more like her sister !!"

Another commented, "They look like sisters, beautiful ladies!"

One fan pointed out, "Omg Sophie and her mum have the same wrists." Not the most obvious of similarities to pick up on, but we love an observant fan.

"I thought Sophie’s dad was the most attractive parent I’d ever seen but now her mum is kicking him off of that pedestal 😅🔥," added another.

One more commented, "Omg her mum is insanely hot 😍😍😍 as is soph 😘🔥."

Habbs and Jamie announced they were engaged in December 2021 and she spilled some major tea on their upcoming nuptials on her podcast, Wednesdays We Drink Wine, earlier this year.

While answering listener queries over a glass of vino on a Wednesday with co-host Melissa Tattam and special guest, Love Island 2022 finalist Tasha Ghouri, the topic of weddings was brought up, leading Sophie to reveal her hen do plans.

She told the girls that she and Jamie were planning on merging their stag and hen dos into a giant "sten" party in Ibiza.

Speaking of her decision, Sophie said, "Personally, for me I find the thought of a hen gives me a bit of anxiety. It’s like all eyes on me and it scares me.

"Do you know why it scares me? I worry so much that my friends are having fun. I’d be like, ‘Are you all having fun?’"

As such, the couple have decided to share the load, by holding a huge joint Ibiza blowout (we're not sure when) with all their posh chums and chumettes.

Despite Sophie's announcement, bestie Melissa stressed that there will also be some sort of mini-hen in London to give the bride-to-be her moment.

MIC stars Sophie and Jamie got together (on MIC, of course) in the summer of 2019, beginning their relationship as close friends. The pair got engaged just before Christmas in 2021. Jamie revealed on his own podcast, Private Parts, that the pair were hoping to get married in 2023.

The couple now host their own pre-wedding podcast together called NewlyWeds, where they share the ups and downs of their journey to the alter. Here's hoping we get a live 'sten' ep in the not-too-distant-future.

Sophie 'Habbs' Habboo may live the ultimate influencer lifestyle on the gram, but she's more widely known for her appearance on Made in Chelsea. After joining the cast of the glam show, she's gone on to make a name for herself as a brand ambassador and business woman.
