Shawn took to Instagram to wish his mum a Happy Mothers Day, and fans couldn't get over how much the two look alike!

The 20-year-old captioned the adorable snap: "Love you, don’t know how I’d live without you! Happy Mother’s Day mum x" and we always knew he was a legend, but he's also a great son.

Who is Shawn Mendes’ sister Aaliyah?

Giving her big brother some competition in the Mendes household, Aaliyah has become a celebrity in her own right.

She’s a social media success with over 800,000 followers on Instagram where she posts all about her life. However, she rarely posts about her brother on there... as in, there are absolutely NO PHOTOS of the two of them together (except a throwback full family pic).
