Celebrities With Children Who Could Be Their Twins
It's not unusual for children to look like their parents. When it comes to these celebrity families, however, the doppelganger effect is a little too uncanny. When they are younger, some kids look like their parents did at ages 10 or 11. And that's the case with some of the children/parent combinations listed here. It's not uncommon for kids to then grow up into distinctive features of their own. But there are other rare cases where mothers and daughters or fathers and sons could be mistaken for siblings even though they are multiple years apart in age! Regardless, good looks seem to run in the family. And even though they may look similar, we are sure that these kids have unique personalities in their own right.
There's no photo manipulation or staging here to make recent pictures resemble older ones. Most of these are just parents walking their kids down the street! Genetics are a crazy thing, but there is one thing that is clear. We might be tempted to think that these kids were actually clones of the parents if we didn't know that human cloning is illegal in the U.S. Take a look for yourself, and see if you agree.
Cindy Crawford & Kaia Gerber
Cindy and her daughter Kaia share the same facial features, but there's one tell that sets them apart. Kaia doesn't have her mom's famous beauty mark. Even if you only saw their eyes, though, you could tell they were related. Like her mother, Kaia Gerber is also a model and it's easy to see why.
Cindy Crawford achieved peak popularity as a model during the 1980s and 1990s. She was one of the most featured models on magazine covers, runways, and numerous fashion ad campaigns. She also had a brief stint as an actress and other business ventures. In April 2016, she appeared on the cover of Vogue Paris with Kaia.
Blythe Danner & Gwyneth Paltrow
Blythe Danner and Gwenyth Paltrow are probably equally famous in their respective heydays, but you may not realize they are related. But when you see Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow together, you just can't unsee the other. It might have taken us too long to realize they were mother and daughter, but there's no way we can deny they are related after seeing them together!
Blythe Danner is a two-time Primetime Emmy Award winner and a Tony Award winner. In recent years, she’s best known for her role in Meet the Parents and its sequels. Her daughter Gwyneth Paltrow is a Primetime Emmy Award winner and an Academy Award winner. Paltrow is known for her roles in Shakespeare in Love, The Royal Tenenbaums, Seven and Iron Man, just to name a few.
Clint & Scott Eastwood
Like father, like son. Scott is taking after his father by getting into the film business. While Clint was famous for starring in Westerns, Scott has taken up the action hero mantle (mostly because we don't make many westerns anymore). That being said, you've got to ask yourself one question: is it time for a Dirty Harry reboot?
Scott Eastwood is the son of flight attendant Jacelyn Reeves with whom Clint Eastwood was having an affair while dating Sondra Locke. Clint Eastwood may not be named on the birth certificate but there’s certainly no denying Scott is his son. Jacelyn and Clint had another child together and both children have had roles in Clint Eastwood’s films.

Gwyneth Paltrow & Apple Martin
Most people know of Apple Martin because of her unique name as it was highly publicized when it was revealed. And even though her father Chris and mother Gwyneth are protective of pictures of their daughter, when they do share the rare one, it's the spitting image of a young Paltrow.
Her father Chris Martin from the band Coldplay obviously shares some similarities as well, but it's clearly Gwyneth with the dominating genes. Born in 2004, Apple has two godfathers: Simon Pegg and fellow Coldplay bandmate Jonny Buckland. After having Apple, Paltrow would cut down on work to care for her.
Uma Thurman & Maya Hawke
Maya Hawke is taking after her mother in more ways than one. Not only is she tall, blonde, and have model looks like her mom Uma, she is also a burgeoning actress. She recently starred in a Little Women miniseries and has been tapped for season three of Stranger Things.
Her mother, of course, has had plenty of success in television and film. She rose to fame thanks to her role in Pulp Fiction, and would earn further success with films like Batman & Robin, Kill Bill, and The Truth About Cats & Dogs. Ethan Hawk is the father of Maya Hawke, and is also an actor known for roles in films like Before Sunrise, Dead Poets Society and Training Day.
Tish & Miley Cyrus
It's clear that Miley received her ever-youthful appearance from her mother Tish. Her personality, on the other hand, seems to be purely her own. Even despite the controversies, Miley Cyrus has earned the most US Billboard 200 top five albums in the 21st century and she continues to garner more accolades as time goes on.
Tish Cyrus is an actress, producer and manager for Miley Cyrus. Miley is the only child she shares biologically with Billy Ray Cyrus, a country star known for his hit single "Achy Breaky Heart." Most consider him a one-hit-wonder but he has 16 studio albums under his belt.
Jude & Rafferty Law
Rafferty isn't unknown to the public since he's the face of many runway campaigns. He can probably thank his father for that since the young Law looks exactly like the older. Rafferty Law is the son of Jude Law and his ex wife Sadie Frost. Rafferty made his catwalk debut for DKNY.
Jude Law is a two-time Academy Award-nominated actor and two-time Tony-nominated actor. His most notable roles have included Road to Perdition, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Sherlock Holmes and Closer among others. Most recently he can be seen in the third entry of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, The Secrets of Dumbledore.

Jennifer Garner & Violet Affleck
Even though Violet Affleck is only 12, it's clear that she's her mother's daughter. Like many celebrity parents, Ben and Jennifer Garner are protective of paparazzi photographing their daughter. So, there aren't many pictures available and you have to respect that, particularly since the life of a celebrity can be somewhat rough.
That being said, both Garner and Affleck are exceedingly successful actors. Garner rose to fame thanks to her television series Alias in which she had a starring role, and then moved on to film roles like 13 Going on 30, Pearl Harbor and Daredevil - the latter two films also starring Ben Affleck. As for Affleck, he's had a successful career with multiple Oscar wins for Screenplay (Good Will Hunting) and Best Picture (Argo).
Judy Garland & Liza Minnelli
Judy Garland is famous for her beautiful singing voice and acting, and her exceptional beauty as well. Not only did Liza get her looks from her mother Judy (have you seen those eyes?), but she also inherited her acting and singing talents from her as well. Their versatility knows no bounds!
Liza Minnelli's father was Vincente Minnelli, a stage director and film director, so Liza Minnelli's career path is only fitting considering she has too performed on the silver screen and the stage. He is best known for his movie musicals: An American in Paris, Gigi and Meet Me in St. Louis - which starred none other than Liza's mother, Judy Garland.
Kate Beckinsale & Lily Mo Sheen
Kate Beckinsale is an ageless beauty, and Lily Mo Sheen is sure to be also. This mother-daughter duo look like siblings! Kate Beckinsale is an actress and model who started her film career in the early '90s with films like Much Ado About Nothing. Her breakthrough role, however, would be Pearl Harbor and the Underworld film series.
Lily Mo Sheen also resembles her father Michael Sheen. Fellow actor Michael Sheen is a stage actor who has had a few Shakespeare works under his belt, as well as a television and film actor. Most notably he played David Frost in Frost/Nixon and starred in the television series Masters of Sex.
Julianne Moore & Liv Freundlich
Julianne Moore is famous for her red locks, and her daughter Liv sports the rouge hair as well. The only difference is that she must have gotten her height from her father. Liv's father is Bart Freundlich, a screenwriter, film producer and director. He has been in a relationship with Julianne Moore since 1996 and they've been married since 2003.
One of Julianne Moore's first film roles was the blockbuster film The Fugitive. She would later take on roles in The Lost World: Jurassic Park, The Hours, A Single Man and Children of Men. She is the recipient of an Academy Award and two Emmy Awards.
David & Romeo Beckham
David Beckham has passed on his boyish good looks onto his son Romeo. He landed his first modeling gig with Burberry at only age 10 and seems to have a bright future ahead in the industry. Unlike his soccer star dad, he seems to have a knack for tennis.
David Beckham had son Romeo Beckham, along with three other children, with Victoria Adams. Born in 2002, Elton John was named the godfather of Romeo Beckham, while Elizabeth Hurley was named the godmother. Romeo is now a professional football player like his father, having begun his senior career in 2021.
Katie Holmes & Suri Cruise
Even at 12, Suri is the spitting image of her mother Katie. You don't even have to go back to younger pictures of Katie, but when you do, the resemblance is ridiculously uncanny. Suri was of course the product of one of the most talked-about relationships in the 2000s, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise.
During the time they were together, all the crazy stuff about Tom Cruise came out including his bizarre couch-jumping stunt on Oprah and of course, all of the Scientology stuff to go along with it. While it didn't totally trash his career, it left us all feeling a bit iffy about Tom as a human being. Hopefully, Suri grows up normal.
Heidi Klum & Leni Samuel
Heidi Klum is one of the most prominent models of the late 20th century and it should come as no surprise he daughter turned out quite beautiful too. Klum's most famous relationship may be with singer Seal, but her 14-year-old daughter was from her previous relationship with Flavio Briatore. The tall blonde more than resembles her model mother.
Before dating Seal publicly, Heidi Klum was with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore. In December 2003, she announced she was pregnant and soon split fro, Briatore to date Seal. By 2004, Leni Samuel was born and Klum has explicitly stated that Seal is Leni's father. Whether they are biologically related or not is unknown but it was Seal who was present for Leni's birth, so he's just as good as her dad anyway.
Goldie Hawn & Kate Hudson
When you have famous parents, sometimes kids feel pressure to live up to their parents' reputation. Not only did Kate step into her mother's shoes as a leading funny lady, but she could also be mistaken for her! Well, at least as long as you are talking about photos from around the same age.
Kate Hudson gained her success at a young age much like her mother. While Goldie Hawn would make it big with films like The Sugarland Express and Private Benjamin, Kate Hudson would rise to fame with films such as Almost Famous and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.
Kate Moss & Lila Grace Moss-Hack
It's clear that Lila got her modeling good looks from her mom Kate. When they were around the same age, they were almost indistinguishable except for the hair color difference. Kate Moss had Lila Grace Moss-Hack back in 2002 with Dazed & Confused editor Jefferson Hack who she dated for a number of years in the 2000s.
Kate Moss was one of the last in the supermodel era, rising to prominence in the 1990s. She famously dated Johnny Depp and was well-known for her work with Calvin Klein. Lila Grace Moss-Hack is now doing modeling work of her own and has a notable social media presence with 287K followers.
Demi Moore & Rumer Willis
Two things to note. First, Demi looks nearly the same now as she did in this picture from her youth. Secondly, if we didn't tell you that Demi was on the left, could you even have guessed who was who? The similarities are striking comparing mother and daughter. Of course, she looks a bit like her dad too.
Rumer Willis seems to be taking after her mother and father, starting a film career of her own. Her parent's status has undoubtedly helped her gain some roles in films like The House Bunny, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Hostage and Wild Cherry. Additionally, she appeared in season 20 of Dancing with the Stars.
Reese Witherspoon & Ava Phillippe
Can you tell who is who in the pictures? Yeah, it's difficult for us to pick them apart as well. Even today, when Reese and Ava appear at events together, they look like siblings instead of parent and child. The resemblance is uncanny and we have to say her daughter looks just as beautiful.
Ava Phillippe hasn't yet got into the film business like her mother and father but that doesn't seem to have kept her out of the spotlight. She's appeared on "Entertainment Tonight" and "Good Morning America." She also has a huge number of followers on her Instagram account, totaling over 1 million.
Vanessa Pardis & Lily-Rose Depp
The French singer/actress/model Vanessa Pardis rose to fame at the young age of 14 in 1987. She was given France's highest honors for her work as an actress and singer, the Prix Romy Schneider and the César Award for Most Promising Actress. Her daughter Lily-Rose is an actress/model in her own right and the spitting image of her mother, as well as her father, Johnny Depp.
Lily-Rose Depp has already appeared in several films including Tusk, The Dancer and The Planetarium. She also starred in The King, a period drama about Henry V which premiered on Netflix. Since 2015, Lily-Rose had been acting as a Chanel brand ambassador. She is sure to find further success and carry on those good genes.
Christie Brinkley & Sailor Brinkley Cook
Sailor stepped in for her mom to compete on a recent season of Dancing With the Stars. As you can see here, she could have also stood in for her mother during modeling gigs because they look almost identical. Sailor is now working as a model herself, after all, having appeared in Teen Vogue and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Christie Brinkley was a prominent model in the '80s, appearing on three consecutive Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers. Additionally, she spent 25 years as the face of CoverGirl. In addition to modeling, she's done some acting including National Lampoon's Vacation. She's been married four times and Sailor is a product of her fourth marriage.
Courteney Cox & Coco Arquette
Coco looks so much like her mother that she recently wore a dress that Courteney wore to the premiere of the film Snake Eyes. That came out 21 years ago! We were doing a double-take trying to guess who was who. Coco Arquette's father is, of course, David Arquette.
David Arquette and Courteney Cox met during the filming of Wes Crave
n's Scream and with their amazing chemistry, it was clear there was something going on there. They married in 1999 and had their daughter in 2004. Jennifer Aniston, Cox's Friends co-star is Coco's godmother.
Elizabeth & Damian Hurley
That's right. This is a mother-son duo. Now that Elizabeth's son Damian has grown his hair out, his similarities to his mother become even more eerily apparent! Damian Hurley, like his mother, is both a model and actor. His father is American businessman Steve Bing as confirmed by a paternity test, who tragically died by suicide in 2020.
In 2016, Damien Hurley was cast as Prince Hansel von Liechtenstein, a show which his mother also stars in. Then, in 2018, he was signed by the modeling agency Tess Management. By 2020, he signed with a new modeling agency, IMG models. Past clients have included Kate Moss, Gisele Bündchen, and Cara Delevingne.
Alan & Robin Thicke
The Blurred Lines singer and the famous actor both share a love for perfectly coiffed hair! If Robin shaved his scruff, he'd look even more like younger pictures of his father Alan Thicke, an actor best known for his work on the sitcom Growing Pains - a show that ran for seven seasons.
Robin Thicke is a singer, songwriter and music producer who has worked with many notable artists and celebrities including Christina Aguilera, Jesse J, Nicki Minaj, Pharrell Williams, Emily Ratajkowski, Brandy and Mary J. Blige. He gained international recognition for his hit single "Blurred Lines" which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
Heather Locklear & Ava Sambora
Ava Sambora's parents are actress Heather Locklear and Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. When you put pictures of Heather and Ava together from when they were the same age, you can definitely tell they share genes and exceptional beauty. Ava is also the daughter of Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora.
Ava Sambora is a social media influencer with 158K followers on her verified Instagram account. She frequently showcases products on her personal blog including Ritual health supplements and XFood delivery services. She is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University and where she'll go from here is anyone's guess.

Madonna & Lourdes Leon
Surely, we aren't surprising you too much, when we tell you that Madonna's a natural brunette. When you compare her to her daughter Lourdes Leon, you can tell that Lourdes got her defined jawline from her mother (and her dark hair)! Lourdes Leon definitely shares a resemblance with her famous mother.
Lourdes Leon has been working as an actress, model, singer and social media influencer among many other things. She is, however, primarily focused on her work as a model as you can see from her Instagram account. She made headlines in 2021 at the Met Gala when she displayed some armpit hair and she has 298K Instagram followers.
Meryl Streep & Mamie Gummer & Grace Gummer
Meryl Streep is one of the strongest screen presences in Hollywood, and it seems are genes are just as dominating in their own way. Here's a trio of two sisters and a mother. MamieGummer and Grace Gummer almost look like identical twins, and all three women share the same trademark Roman nose.
Mami Gummer has graced the television in series like "The Good Wife," and its spin-off "The Good Fight," as well as having a starring role in the CW show "Emily Owens MD." Film roles she's had include Stop-Loss, Cake and Separation. Grace has been fairly successful as an actor too, working on Broadway and on-camera such as in the HBO series "The Newsroom," and FX's "American Horror Story: Freak Show."

Bette Midler & Sophie von Haselberg
If Sophie Hasselberg got up to a mic and started singing, you might not realize that it wasn't her mother Bette Midler. At least when it came to appearances. We don't know what Sophie's singing voice sounds like but it is certainly a tough act to follow. We sure wouldn't want to be in her shoes!
Sophie von Haselberg has not yet made a big name for herself but she has already made the spotlight with a nig name director: Woody Allen. She appeared in his 2015 film Irrational Man. Her father is Martin von Haselberg, an artist known for his comedic performance art., but she certainly looks more like her mom.
Susan Sarandon & Eva Amurri
You might have seen Eva in the bit parts she's had in shows like How I Met Your Mother, New Girl, and The Mindy Project. She might not have won an Oscar like her mom Susan Sarandon, but they sure do look alike. Although she doesn't look to have her mothers hair color.
Eva Amurri is also the daughter of Franco Amurri, an Italian director. However, she was mostly raised by Sarandon and her partner Tim Robbins. She has two maternal half-brothers: Jack and Miles. Since 2011, she's been married to Kyle Martino, an NBC sportscaster and former Major League Soccer player.
Candace Cameron Bure & Natasha Valerievna Bure
Candace made her claim-to-fame starring in Full House. Natasha got her following from YouTube. We think that if you swapped their eyes and smile in photoshop, their pictures would look the same! Natasha Valerievna Bure made an appearance on the Full House spin-off series, Fuller House in 2020.
Natasha Valerievna Bure has also had television film roles such as in The Heart of Christmas, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson Story, and Switched for Christmas. Natasha is perhaps best known for her social media presence as she has a YouTube channel with over 120K followers, covering topics on health, beauty and fashion.
Tina Fey & Alice Richmond
Alice is still pretty young but even now we can see how much she resembles her mother. Hopefully, she also inherited that witty sense of humor her mother has but that's to judge for yourself. Side note: we're obsessed with this picture of Tina holding a rose on her shoulder.
Alice Richmond has appeared on the show "30 Rock," so it seems she's already gotten a little career boost from her mother. But she's also only a child, so it may be a while before she even has to worry about that. Her father is spouse Jeff Richmond, an actor, composer, director and producer.
