If your mom is like mine, she’s probably sharing a mushroom spinach quiche recipe or saying happy birthday to my ex-girlfriend on Facebook, who she still feels an impulse to contact six years later.
The mother of 19-year-old Roma soccer star Nicolo Zaniolo has a different approach. She also has a different body than my mother. Mom, love you, but you won’t be given a blue check mark and be making a living selling protein teas on Instagram in this lifetime.
Francesca Costa is 41 years old and has 375,000 Instagram followers. Not for her quiche recipes, which I’m sure are delicious, but because she’s an absolute fox.
Costa has a duck lip habit that my 17-year-old cousin likes to do before she sneaks into a bar.
Nicolo, who scored both goals against Porto in the Champions League earlier in the week, has had enough with his mom channeling her inner Amy Poehler in Mean Girls:

The 19-year-old recently commented on one of his mom’s ducky face post with the following:
“Stop mum. What are you doing with your mouth like that? You’re 40!”
He’s right in that the mouth posture needs some work, but he’s wrong in that she needs to stop posting photos.
Remember, Francesa: You are the parent, Nicolo is the son. Do not bend to his demands. Double down! I’ll be refreshing my browser.
