CINCINATTI -- An Ohio mom who has taken the steps to look like her childhood idol has become a social media sensation in the process and tells WJW she is often misunderstood.

Nannette Hammond says she was always fascinated with Barbie’s beauty growing up and now has taken steps to look like her childhood idol.

The transformation began about 20 years ago when the petite mom in her early 40s had her first breast augmentation.

Other procedures followed while working as a nurse for a plastic surgeon; including two more breast operations, injections, dental veneers and Barbie blonde hair extensions.

Hammond admits to spending about $500,000 over the years but says it was gradual and has never interfered with her family’s needs or their ability to support various charities.
