Well, that’s one way to get a selfie with a celebrity.
When Cheryl Potts went on vacation to Hawaii with her husband and some friends earlier this month, she kept her daughter Presley Peterson, 18, updated with plenty of vacation photos.
One selfie Potts sent caught Peterson’s attention for a surprising reason Nick Jonas was casually chilling in the background. And Mom had no idea.
“I was sure it was Nick as soon as I saw the picture,” Peterson wrote to Mashable. “To confirm, I follow him on Snapchat, and sure enough, he was in Hawaii. I called her immediately after seeing the picture, trying to convince her to talk to him and get a better picture, but she wouldn’t.”
Peterson, who is from Melbourne, Florida, is a longtime fan of the musician and actor.
“I was completely shocked to get that picture,” Peterson said. “I’m a huge fan of Nick Jonas, from the Jonas Brothers to Camp Rock up until now. I have always loved him.”
Even though Peterson immediately recognized the Jonas Brother, her mom wasn’t so sure at first.
“Initially my mother thought Nick Jonas looked like a friend of hers’ son, but very soon after taking the picture, a friend my mom was with said, ‘No, that’s Nick Jonas!'” Peterson told Mashable. “After finding out that that is Nick in her picture she definitely sees the humor in it and we all find it super funny.”
Congratulations to Cheryl for living out the dream of every girl who has been a teen at some point in the last 10 years: taking a selfie with a Jonas Brother.
