We all know someone who looks exactly like their mom or dad—after all, biology works like that. And while it's certainly not an unusual coincidence, it's a much bigger deal when our favorite celebrities have their own mini-me's. Click through to see our favorite celebrity kids who are the spitting image of their parents. The resemblances are seriously uncanny.
Lisa Bonet and Zoë Kravitz
Name a better mother-daughter duo, I'll wait. Lisa Bonet is absolutely ageless, and she passed down her razor-sharp cheekbones to her daughter Zoë. What a stunning pair.
Chrissy Teigen and Luna Stephens
When John Legend and Chrissy Teigen welcomed their first child into the world, everyone noticed the resemblance between Luna and Chrissy. Chrissy often shares sweet videos of Luna on social media, and it looks like the toddler is taking after her mom with her sassy little personality.
Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber
It's clear where Kaia got her glowing skin and fresh-faced looks from! She's also following in her mom's footsteps as a model.
Elizabeth Hurley and Damian Hurley
Here, Damian pays homage to his mother's famous Versace moment. The 18-year-old is following in his mom's modeling footsteps, signing with Tess Management in 2018.
Tish Cyrus and Miley Cyrus
Honestly, these two could be sisters. Their almond-shaped eyes and high cheekbones scream #twinning. Now that Miley is back to rocking her mid-length blonde hair, these two look even more alike.
Uma Thurman and Levon Roan Thurman-Hawke
When Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke are your parents, you're working with some pretty good genes. Take one glance and you immediately know Levon Roan Thurman-Hawke is Uma's son.
Madonna and Lourdes Leon
Lourdes Leon is the brunette version of her mom, Madonna. Also, imagine your mom being Madonna?
David Beckham and Brooklyn Beckham
The eldest of the Beckham clan, Brooklyn is the spitting image of his soccer star father. He has taken a different path though, focusing on photography!
Stephen Baldwin and Hailey Bieber
Hailey Bieber clearly got her famous smize from her dad.
Ice Cube & O’Shea Jackson Jr.
O'Shea Jackson Jr. Looks so much like his rapper father that he played him in the movie about his life, Straight Outta Compton.
Alessandra Ambrosio and Anja Louise Ambrosio Mazur
Anja Louise takes after her mom; the 11-year-old is a supermodel in the making!
Leslie Mann and Iris and Maude Apatow
Leslie Mann is so ageless that she looks like her young daughters' third sister.
Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe
It's official: Reese Witherspoon has an alter ego that's personified in her 20-year-old daughter, Ava Phillippe. She looks exactly like Reese!
Marcheline Bertrand and Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie is considered one of the most beautiful women in the world. Take one look at her mother, Marcheline, and you can tell that the apple does not fall far from the tree.
Robin Wright and Dylan Penn
Another dream gene pool. Dylan Penn, whose parents are Robin Wright and Sean Penn, takes after her stunning mother Robin Wright. Dylan has taken up modeling, and most recently starred in a Rag & Bone campaign.
Vanessa Paradis and Lily-Rose Depp
When you're the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, you've got some good genes to work with. Lily-Rose is the spitting image of her mom, Vanessa—which you can see *so* obviously in this pic of the duo.
Yolanda Hadid and Gigi Hadid
Modeling is in Gigi's DNA. She takes after her model mother, Yolanda Hadid, with her blonde hair and shiny blue eyes.
Julianne Moore and Liv Freundlich
Right off the bat, we notice the rosy cheekbones that Liv clearly got from her mom, Julianne Moore. The older she gets, the more we're thinking these two could be twins.
Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner
Out of all the Kardashian-Jenner siblings, it's safe to say Kendall is the one that looks most like momager Kris Jenner.
Christie Brinkley and Sailor Brinkley-Cook
Really, if you stood far away, you probably couldn't point out who was Christie and who was Sailor because they look like replicas of each other. The two have posed for a Sports Illustrated cover with Brinkley's other daughter, Alexa.
Scott Disick and Mason Disick
Just like dad? Mason Disick is the spitting image of his reality star father, all the way down to the sunglasses and athleisure get up.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Apple Martin
Gwyneth Paltrow shared a photo of her daughter, Apple, on Instagram, celebrating her 13th birthday. The mother and daughter look insanely alike, and know how to pose the same way too. I mean, just look at that smize.
Heidi Klum and Helene (Leni) Samuel
Klum's daughter, Leni, is looking more and more like her every day. People have long thought the 15-year-old has had similar features to those of her mother, but in this photo of them—both with hair in buns—the resemblance is crazy.
Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise
Katie Holmes shared an Instagram of her daughter hanging in L.A. with a couple family members last year. Holmes also posted a photo of her 17-year-old self, and side by side, the two look like they could have been separated at birth.
Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise
Yep, they looked alike as toddlers, too. According to her Instagram caption, three-year-old Katie Holmes loved dressing up—just like Suri. Though she probably didn't do it with a $150,000 shoe collection.
Charles Delevingne and Cara Delevingne
Cara Delevingne posted a throwback photo of her father, Charles Delevingne, on Instagram and now we know who we can thank for blessing her with those iconic eyebrows.
Salma Hayek and Valentina Pinault
What a cutie! Valentina already looks so much like her famous momma, as seen here at the premiere of Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet.
Carol Minaj and Nicki Minaj
"She got it from her mama" never rang more true. Nicki Minaj hit the red carpet with her mother Carol at the BET Awards with their raven-black hair, honey skin, and pillowy lips.
Demi Moore and Rumer Willis
The 28-year-old Dancing with the Stars winner has no complaints when it comes to looking like her 54-year-old mom. "That moment when you realize you actually are becoming your mother #twinning #imnotmad," she wrote on Instagram. (For the record, we wouldn't be mad either.)
Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson
They have the same lips, same nose, and same eyes. Yep, and basically the same face.
Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson
It doesn't take long to figure out that these two are related.
Kim Kardashian West and North West
It's all in those Kardashian genes. Kim posted this side-by-side image of her baby picture (on the left) and North West (on the right).
Dorothy Nyong'o and Lupita Nyong'o
The star showed off her resemblance to her beautiful mom on her Instagram. "Like mother (1983), like daughter (2015)," she captioned the pic.
Jayne Mansfield and Mariska Hargitay
Jayne Mansfield got her start as an actress and was one of the early Playboy playmates. Her daughter, Mariska Hargitay, of Law & Order: SVU fame, is her spitting image.
Susan Sarandon and Eva Amurri Martino
Susan Sarandon's daughter certainly did not fall far from the tree—besides inheriting her mother's love of acting, Martino also inherited some damn good genes.
Meryl Streep and Mamie and Grace Gummer
If Meryl is a babe, then her daughters, Mamie and Grace, are babes too. With some time travel, they could totally pass as triplets.
Beyoncé and Blue Ivy
Not only is Blue Ivy the spitting image of her mom, but the mother-daughter pair bears a striking resemblance to Bey and her grandmother, as seen in this side-by-side Mother's Day Instagram post.
