When Deanna Pilling went to visit her daughter at university, she thought it would be a great idea to sneak into her shared dorm room and snap a snuggly selfie in her bed.
But things went awry when she quickly discovered her surroundings weren't exactly familiar.
After snapping a selfie and texting it to her daughter McKenna, the 18-year-old responded to say: "Please tell me you're not in someone else's dorm."
The pair's exchange soon went viral on Twitter, and they posted a celebratory selfie to mark the occasion - all coinciding with Mother's Day in the US.
McKenna told Buzzfeed: "Every time I refresh my feed more retweets/favorites pop up, and now all my mom has to say is, ‘I wish I would’ve taken a better picture'."
