Celebrity Children Who Look Exactly Like Their Parents

Celebrity Children Who Look Exactly Like Their Parents

Some children are blessed not just because they’ve been born to rich and successful people, but also because they’ve inherited their money-making genes. In fact, some kids – like Heidi Klum and Seal’s daughter – look so much like their iconic moms and dads that it’s scary. See just how close the apple sometimes falls to the tree.

49. Reese Witherspoon And Ava Phillippe

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe may have named their daughter after legendary Hollywood beauty Ava Gardner, but it’s her own mom whom she most definitely resembles – particularly with that bright blonde hair and winning smile.


48. Courteney Cox And Coco Arquette

Given that she has Jennifer Aniston for a godmother, Coco Arquette may know the importance of having good hair – and that’s perhaps why she’s been having her own locks colored from a young age. No dye can disguise Coco’s remarkable resemblance to mom Courteney Cox, though.

47. Lisa Bonet And Zoë Kravitz

Mad Max: Fury Road star Zoë Kravitz may have dad Lenny’s last name, but there’s no doubt as to which of her famous parents she most looks like. She and mom Lisa Bonet could even pass for sisters – if you didn’t know their true relationship to each other, that is.


46. Tom And Colin Hanks

Colin Hanks has not only inherited his father Tom’s looks, but the Oscar-winner’s acting talent to boot, judging from his acclaimed turns in the likes of TV series Band of Brothers and Fargo.


45. Uma Thurman And Maya Thurman-Hawke

Maya Thurman-Hawke currently looks exactly like a mini version of her mom. She’s got the bright eyes and the silky hair, in particular – though it remains to be seen whether she also has the butt-kicking ability that Uma demonstrated in Kill Bill.


44. Brad Pitt And Shiloh Jolie-Pitt

Apparently, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt prefers instead to be called John and, furthermore, opts to wear suits rather than dresses. And going on looks alone, it’s entirely feasible that the reportedly gender-neutral child will grow up to be the exact spit of father Brad.


43. David Beckham And Brooklyn, Romeo And Cruz Beckham

It seems that at one point former soccer star David Beckham decided, with wife Victoria, to create a doppelganger army of himself. That’s judging from a glance at sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, who all look a lot like their celebrity dad.


42. Gwyneth Paltrow And Apple Martin

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s unusually named daughter Apple is growing up into an adorable clone of her mother. Unsurprisingly, perhaps, the teen’s mom has dubbed her “my little beauty.”


41. Cindy Crawford And Kaia Gerber

Legendary supermodel Cindy Crawford has a magnificently cheekboned mini-me in her teenage daughter Kaia Gerber. And as befitting someone who’s inherited Cindy’s stunning looks, Kaia seems also to be following her mom’s career path, having signed up with agency VIVA Model Management.


40. Susan Sarandon And Eva Amurri

Mother-daughter actress duo Susan Sarandon and Eva Amurri share not only the exact same facial features, but they also at one time went halves on a movie role. Eva appeared as the childhood version of Helen Prejean, her mom’s character in 2005 crime drama Dead Man Walking.


39. Heather Locklear And Ava Sambora

Ava Sambora is the daughter of former Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, but it’s her other parent Heather Locklear whom she spookily resembles. And Ava also seemingly took her cue from her mom rather than her dad when it came to choosing a career path. How? By taking her first acting role in 2012 comedy movie This Is 40.


38. Bette Midler And Sophie von Haselberg

Sophie von Haselberg is the spitting image of her famous mother Bette Midler, and perhaps that fact has helped the two to bond. Indeed, in 2014 the long-serving singer and actress told People, “My daughter is my best friend. She thinks I am hysterical.”


37. Julianne Moore And Liv Freundlich

Liv Freundlich first appeared on the silver screen while she was still too young for kindergarten, but acting credits aren’t the only things that she shares with mother Julianne Moore. For one, she also has her mom’s beautiful red hair.


36. Danny And Gilbert Trejo

In a 2014 interview Danny Trejo said, “For the first half of my life, my looks got me in trouble and now it’s paying off.” Fortunately, though, even if Trejo’s son Gilbert looks remarkably similar to his dad, he’s following in his footsteps by appearing in movies and not by straying onto the wrong side of the law, as the Machete star did way back when.


35. Robin Wright And Dylan Penn

Robin Wright’s daughter with Sean Penn, Dylan Penn, is an actor like both her parents. And though Dylan admits that she has inherited something of an ego from her father, it’s clear that she gets her looks from her mom.


34. Jay Z And Blue Ivy Carter

Here’s a case of a girl taking after her father even more than she does her mother. Yes, you may have expected Blue Ivy to look just like Beyoncé, but as a chip off the old block she’s more like Jay Z.


33. Kate Beckinsale And Lily Sheen

Lily Sheen definitely takes after her famous mother Kate Beckinsale, rather than dad Michael Sheen, in the facial features department. Even if Lily is blessed with such good looks, though, it’s still perhaps reassuring to fellow teens everywhere that her actress mom is just as “embarrassing” as anyone else’s is when it comes to growing up.


32. Cristiano Ronaldo And Cristiano Ronaldo Jr.

European soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo has a mini-me – and one whom he’s named after himself. Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. was born in 2010, but the identity of the little boy’s mother has apparently never been made public.


31. Kate Moss And Lila Grace Moss Hack

Kate Moss has one very similar-looking daughter in the shape of Lila Grace Moss Hack – daughter of magazine editor Jefferson Hack. As a matter of fact, Kate has said that she even sometimes takes fashion tips from her teenage lookalike.


30. Mike And Miguel Tyson

Mike Tyson has fathered no less than eight offspring, but the one of them whom he perhaps looks most like is his teenage son Miguel. Oh, and back when Miguel was just a baby Tyson wanted him to one day be a fighter.


29. Damon Wayans And Damon Wayans Jr.

Such is the strength of their resemblance that Damon Wayans Sr. and Jr. look like a pair of older-younger clones. Wayans Jr. is the offspring of his pop and Lisa Thorner, and the father-and-son comedians actually sometimes appear together on stage.


28. Demi Moore And Rumer Willis

Rumer Willis is the offspring of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, and save for her having inherited her father’s jaw shape, she definitely takes more after her mother on the looks front. The thirty-something actress has even joked about the two of them looking more like twins than mom and daughter.


27. Heath And Matilda Ledger

When Heath Ledger tragically passed away in 2008, he left behind a daughter called Matilda. Believe it or not, that girl is a teenager now and lives with her mother, actress Michelle Williams – but she looks almost eerily like her father.

26. Will And Willow Smith

You only have to look at him to be able to guess who Jaden Smith’s dad is, but his sister Willow’s resemblance to pa Will is perhaps even more obvious; after all, she’s got pretty much the exact same ears as him. Oh, and if you still weren’t clued in, she’s also named after her Men in Black star dad. Subtle, right?


25. Ice Cube And O’Shea Jackson Jr.

Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. not only possesses the same given name as his dad, but his remarkable resemblance to the rap star might also just have helped him land the role of Cube in 2015 NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton.


24. Gordon And Jack Ramsay

Ask any restaurant owner and they’ll probably say that one Gordon Ramsay is one more than the world needs. Better not tell them, then, that the celebrity chef has his very own miniature version of himself in son Jack. Let’s hope that the lad doesn’t share his dad’s explosive temper.


23. Christie Brinkley And Sailor Brinkley Cook

Christie Brinkley’s daughter Sailor Brinkley Cook has insisted that she’s not a doppelganger of her supermodel mom. The photographic evidence is hard to deny, though.


22. Melanie Griffith And Dakota Johnson

Melanie Griffith may have denied ever wanting to see Dakota Johnson in Fifty Shades of Grey, but there’s one thing that the veteran actress probably will admit: there’s quite the family resemblance between mother and daughter.


21. Milla Jovovich And Ever Anderson

Surely there was no doubt that Milla Jovovich’s kids would turn out very good-looking. And Ever Anderson, whose father is movie director Paul W.S. Anderson, appropriately looks just like a mini version of her famously beautiful mother.


20. Will And Jaden Smith

Jaden Smith has portrayed the on-screen son of real-life dad Will in not one but two movies: 2006 drama The Pursuit of Happyness and 2013 sci-fi adventure After Earth. And given how closely he resembles his actor father, Jaden was likely the only real choice for those roles.


19. Mel B And Phoenix Chi Gulzar

It’s, well, scary how much Mel B’s teenage daughter Phoenix Chi Gulzar now looks just like the Spice Girl did as a younger woman. And judging from a an Instagram snap of Phoenix in a little black dress and heels, it seems as though she’s now more than polished enough to accompany her mother to any red carpet soirees.


18. Jennifer Lopez And Emme Muniz

Looking at Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s twins now, it’s clear that Emme has won out over Max in the race to look most like their mother. J-Lo even captioned a December 2015 Instagram photo of her and her daughter with “my mini-me.” Case closed.


17. Jerry Hall And Georgia May Jagger

Georgia May Jagger has certainly inherited the beauty of her still-good-looking supermodel mother, Jerry Hall. What’s more, it’s clear that mom and daughter share the same platinum blonde hair, the same striking eyes and even the same devastating smile.


16. Katie Holmes And Suri Cruise

By mid 2012 Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s relationship had unquestionably run its course. It was Katie, furthermore, who gained custody of the former couple’s daughter Suri, and time has seen the teenager evolve into an adorable copy of her mother.


15. Dwayne And Simone Johnson

There’s no mistaking the identity of Simone Johnson’s famous father. After all, she has Dwayne Johnson’s eyes, nose and smile – though it remains to be seen whether she’s also inherited his wrestling skills.


14. Danny And Lucy DeVito

Danny DeVito’s equally petite daughter Lucy may be a lot prettier than her dad – and have a lot more hair – but some of her features definitely give the game away. Her nose, for example, was definitely inherited from the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star, not to mention the shape of her face.


13. Madonna And Lourdes Leon

Overlooking the difference between the pair in terms of hair color, Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon could easily be a younger clone of the Queen of Pop. In 2014 Lourdes even decided to enroll at her mother’s alma mater, the University of Michigan, although only time will tell whether she follows mom into a music career.


12. John And Ella Bleu Travolta

Put John Travolta and Kelly Preston’s genes together and the Saturday Night Fever star’s traits will win out. Well, that’s apparently what happened with Travolta’s daughter Ella Bleu, who has his blue-gray eyes, dark brown hair and nose.


11. Samuel L. And Zoe Jackson

Not many people even know that Samuel L. Jackson has a daughter; one look at any snap of him and Zoe together, though, should show you that it’s true. And yes, when she was a child she was indeed often told to “go the f**k to sleep.”


10. Donald And Rocco Faison

If TV execs ever commissioned a Scrubs spin-off where all the main characters were in pre-school – unlikely, but stranger things have happened – then there’s only one boy out there who could play Turk. After all, Rocco Faison might still only be a child, but his resemblance to his actor dad Donald is uncanny.

9. Carrie Fisher And Billie Lourd

Billie Lourd paid subtle tribute to her mom during her short appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, with her hair fastened into a pair of side-buns just like Princess Leia’s ’do in the original movie. Yep, the Scream Queens star’s mother is none other than Carrie Fisher – which you’d also be able to tell just from looking at photos of the pair together.


8. Rhea Perlman And Gracie DeVito

It’s a shame that Gracie DeVito is more into art than acting. After all, the daughter of Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito would be a shoo-in to play a younger version of mom if any of Perlman’s next movies required it, such are the striking similarities between the two.


7. Jamie Foxx And Annalise Bishop

Jamie Foxx’s daughter Annalise not only has his looks but his charisma as well, if her behavior at the 2015 Grammy Awards is anything to go by. The pre-teen became instant best buds with a host of stars at the event and charmed the likes of Madonna and Jay Z into posing for super-cute photos with her to boot.


6. Tracy And Maven Morgan

According to her comedian dad Tracy, little Maven Morgan has become quite the entertainer. “She dances and sings,” he added to People in 2015 – so perhaps this mini-me could be the opening act for her father when she grows up.


5. Michael J. And Sam Fox

If they ever make a fourth Back to the Future movie – fingers crossed – then Michael J. Fox could easily relinquish the role of Marty McFly to son Sam. Okay, so Sam’s a little bit taller than dad, but then it’s easy enough to suspend disbelief when it comes to that time-traveling DeLorean, so why not?


4. Robert And James Redford

James Redford followed his dad, veteran actor Robert, all the way to Hollywood but decided to stay behind the scenes as a director, producer and writer. It’s just as well, because he could easily be mistaken for a younger version of his father if he ever wandered into a scene.


3. Steven And Chelsea Tyler

Chelsea Tyler definitely looks an awful lot like half-sister Liv, who in turn definitely resembles dad Steven. Basically, there’s no escape from the Aerosmith frontman’s genes if you’re one of his kids, as one look at Chelsea certainly suggests.


2. Alessandra Ambrosio And Anja Ambrosio Mazur

It’s fair to say that Alessandra Ambrosio has a perfect little mini-me in her daughter. And Anja is just as adept at striking a pose as her model mom – just look at the shots of her on the Victoria’s Secret Angel’s Instagram page.


1. Britney Spears And Sean Preston Federline

Britney Spears’s first son with Kevin Federline, Sean Preston, looks just like her in so many ways. After all, he’s not only got the blond hair and the megawatt smile, but the wholesome sweetness that made Britney such a huge hit in the late ’90s and early ’00s.
