Not all of us have fame running in our blood, but being the kid of a celebrity could be both a curse and a blessing. Looking identical to our parents is something that some of us can dread, but we’d have to say that these famous kids really lucked out in the genetic lottery.
1. Will and Jaden Smith
This is such a throwback to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air days! Jaden is certainly as striking as his daddy, with the same bad boy factor.
2. Heather Locklear and Ava Sambora
These wide-eyed butterflies are years apart, but look the same! Heather Locklear was a classic heartbreaker back in the day, and her blond mermaid of a daughter has decided to follow in her modeling footsteps. These two emit a glow that’s hard to beat.
3. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Joseph Baena
This is a total throwback to Arnold in his younger, pre-governed days. Joseph is a total hottie, and the jaw-dropping resemblance to his dad is picture perfect. From the puffed up biceps to the long hair, we wonder if Arnold dreams of his younger days when he sees his son.
4. Christie and Sailor Brinkley
Impressive. Same expression and everything – America’s sweetheart supermodel Christie Brinkley’s daughter Sailor is as whimsical as her mom and her name. At 62 we can only hope to look as good as our 17 year old daughter.
5. Reese and Ava Witherspoon
Wow. Actually the same face. These pics pretty much speak for themselves. Reese has been quotes saying she doesn’t want Ava to follow in her acting footsteps in order to enjoy her childhood, Ava does pretty much look like her mom in her “Cruel Intention” days.
6. Meryl Streep and Mamie Gummer
The uncanny resemblance between these two is almost eerie. Meryl, how do you look the same after so many decades? And Mamie, why are you giving us throwbacks to Sophie’s Choice era Meryl? They started together in “Ricky and the Flash” where Meryl played Mamie’s actual mom. Too cute, guys.
7. Madonna and Lourdes Leon
The ravishing brunette know as Lourdes shares identical bushy brows with her mother Madonna, especially in Madonna’s ‘80s heyday. She’s also going to school for music, dance, and theater. Straight-up mini-me of Madonna.
8. Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber
Kaia gives us heart eye emoji nostalgic feels for her supermodel mom back in the ‘90s. This 14-year-old beauty was featured alongside her 50-year-old mother on the cover of Parsian Vogue, and it looks like a bizarrely incredible, Photoshopped time warp.
9. Vanessa Paradis and Lily-Rose Depp
Wow. These Euro beauties bring the elegance every time. Lily-Rose has gotten her own sort of claim to fame in her own right, and when you see her with stunning look-alike mom, it’s unclear who steals the spotlight.
10. Kim Basinger and Ireland Baldwin
Ireland was famous for her modeling chops and her relationship with LGBTQ rapper Angel Haze, but her mom was simply iconic. Luckily, both of them are stone cold foxes and serve up the same fierceness in their on-point hair part and man-melting gaze.
11. Nicole Richie and Harlow Madden
This little nugget of a wild child looks as fearless as her mom in all their public pics. We can’t wait till this cutie is old enough to have her own Instagram account and share twinsie selfies of her and her fashionista mom.
