Yara Shahidi Does Mother Daughter Challenge on Jimmy Fallon

Yara Shahidi and Her Mom Prove They're True "Homegirls" in Adorable "Mother Daughter Challenge"

Jimmy Fallon just learned a very important lesson: never — and I repeat: never — test Yara Shahidi and her mother on their knowledge of each other, because they'll totally show you up. When Yara and Keri Shahidi sat down with the late-night host, he engaged them in a good ol' "Mother Daughter Challenge," and — spoiler alert! — they totally nailed it.

For the game, Jimmy asked the women random questions about each other, and they had to guess each other's answers on a notepad. First up, he asked Yara, "What's the one thing your mom says more than anything else?" The Grown-ish star immediately scribbled the words "homeboy/homegirl," and her mother wrote the exact same thing, explaining that it's a term she always uses when she doesn't remember someone's name.

Watch the video above to see what other fun questions the adorable duo answered about each other. Like mother, like daughter, am I right?
