Tina Lawson Just Proved Beyoncé Looked *Just* Like Blue Ivy as a Kid with This Adorable Throwback Pic


Not entirely convinced that Beyoncé didn't just pop out of Tina then-Knowles, now-Lawson fully formed with a crop top and a belly button piercing? Us either—until we saw this new throwback pic of the queen as a kid, looking like Blue Ivy's twin.


"If Beyoncé don’t look like Blue on this photo!!! Getting her braids done by Toni,” Lawson captioned the photo, posted Saturday. And she really does, even after a side-by-side comparison.

It remains to be seen how closely twins Rumi and Sir resemble Beyoncé and Jay Z, as they were only born in June and therefore must still look like little balding men more than anything.
