Australian model and influencer Kristina Mendonca regularly posts bikini photos on her social media accounts, but there’s one thing that her over 587k followers have always been wondering.

Now the big mystery behind her swimwear snaps has been solved, with Kristina revealing exactly who it is that’s following her from location to location, taking her photos.

“Do you ever wonder who actually takes all my Instagram pictures?” she wrote on her account.

“Well if you must know.... my mum took this one, haha thanks mum xoxo.”

The model wore a skimpy white bikini in the accompanying shot, featuring a triangle-cut bikini top and barely-there bottoms with clear side straps.

Fans were quick to praise Kristina’s mum for capturing the right angles, with one follower writing, “Nice one mum”, and another saying, “Mom is killin it”.

Earlier this year the model became a global viral sensation, after a hilariously entertaining video emerged, and clocked up over 20 million views in a matter of days.

In the clip she was working her best angles in a bikini on Bondi Beach, when all of a sudden, an older gentleman with an impressive stomach and an even larger smile, emerged from the water and strolled straight through her video, completely unaware of his surroundings.

“It’s so crazy the reaction people have had,” Kristina told Yahoo Lifestyle after the video went viral

“I love that I am making people laugh all around the world.”
