Children Who Look Exactly Like Their Parents

Parents always wish that their child will receive the good looks from Mommy and Daddy. Sometimes, their kid will grow up and be the spitting image of their mom or dad.

For the families in the next photos, the genes must be strong, because you can hardly tell who is who.

If the daughter had on less eye makeup, you probably wouldn’t have been able to tell the difference. They both have the same relaxed facial posture and the nose too.

Buzz Lightyear is one of the coolest cartoon movie characters ever to exist. It’s amazing that he’s lasted this many decades and can bring together families like this. Is he still considered nostalgic?

That’s Spot On

The head tilt, the glasses, the nose, and pretty much everything else make these two look like twins. If I didn’t know any better, I’d assume these two were brothers.

Sometimes, a father and a daughter might resemble each other more than a dad and a son. Here is an excellent example for you to gander at and wonder how it is possible.

“My Husband (1978) And Daughter (2012)”

Would you look at that! Same yawn and everything. The circumference of the circle of their mouths makes it look like they have the same diameter going on also. This is something you wouldn’t believe unless you saw the image.

Daughters everywhere have at least one photo that captures them looking like their mother, even if they don’t the rest of the time. This is that picture for this girl.

Is it a big deal if your dad has the same hair as his daughter did when they grew up? I’ve heard some women like that, and it helped this father look like his daughter.

Wow, this one is perfect! The way both of them scrunch up their noses puts the cherry on top and makes them look more like twins than mother and daughter.

“Me In The ’70s And My Son A Few Years Ago”

The ’70s were a different time. People loved bangs even more than now. Thanks to them, we have another off-gender match that shows moms can look like sons as well.

You’ve got to admit it; these two have the same smile. It’s really the way they decided to say cheese that makes them look identical here. It looks like dad had a slightly bigger head.

What a difference a decade can make. When she was younger, she didn’t look too much like her mother. Now, it looks like she copied and pasted her face onto her daughter.

If her kid had different colored eyes, then this wouldn’t be that impressive. It’s the eyes that make these two look so incidental, but the hair plays a major role as well.

I wonder if he grew his beard out to be like his dad or because he likes beards. It looks like the son has a slightly bigger nose, but that doesn’t change much.

Well, this is probably in the top five on the list of who looks most like their parents. It doesn’t get any closer than this, but maybe it will later. Look at the head tilts!

Both women are beautiful. Is that because they look the same? Well, let’s say you won’t be able to compliment one without it applying to the other. I wonder how happy dad was when his daughter turned into his wife.

Even with his dad having a slightly more narrow head, the beard makes these two look almost the same. The son has a bigger smile, but the similarities are all there.

This man’s dad passed when he was 4 and everyone would tell him how much they looked alike. It looks like he owned up to his father’s looks with this photo.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

The dresses are similar, but everything else is perfect. The face, the way these two smile; this is the epitome of a copy-paste child, and I know this mother loves to see it.

Wait, This Isn’t The Same Person?

I was almost certain these two were the same until it said otherwise. Probably the only difference is how they decided to do their eyebrows. If not for that, you could fool anyone with this picture.

Someone get a director, we have some movie stars on our hands. These two can play mother and daughter in any film and no one will have to ask if they’re related.

Every morning when this mom sees her son, she probably has to make sure it isn’t her husband during a dark day. I mean, look at these two and say you would never get confused.

I wouldn’t call it identical, but I would for sure laugh about the similarities after looking at this for the first time. Right away, you can see all the same features these two have.

Might As Well Call Them Sisters

If the picture of her mom wasn’t slightly dated, and if the daughter didn’t have so much extra lighting, then you wouldn’t be able to tell that they were mother and daughter. They look more like sisters.

But Why The Haircut?

Whoever told these two it was okay to take school pictures with those haircuts lied to them. While they do look alike, they could have chosen a different look other than that one.

My guess is that this picture is at Stonehenge. I don’t know, the strange rock formations make it a dead giveaway. Outside of that, you can also tell that this is a mother-daughter duo.

A person can only look like someone so much. At a certain point, you start to wonder if it’s even real or not. I’m wondering if this is fake right now.

Well, everyone knows who she takes after, and it isn’t her dad. For a second, it looks like the image on the right is a younger version of the woman on the left.

On their 60th birthday, who knew they would look so much alike? If you need reading glasses, you probably should put them on so that you can tell who is who.

For anyone and everyone that has a parent that looks exactly like you and vice-versa, never be afraid to show it off. I’m glad this daughter appreciates how her mother looks.

If the son would have turned his head like his dad did, this would have been the perfect picture. Still, you can see the resemblance and it’s as uncanny as ever.

The first photo was taken of the mother in 1980 and the second is of her daughter in 2014. Right down to the sassy posing and the eye roll, these two are one and the same.

This daughter decided to recreate the same photo of her mother taken 41 years before when her mom held her firstborn son to commemorate the birth of her first child, a son, being born.

That’s The Same Chair Too!

This father recreated a childhood photo of himself with his son by giving him the same haircut, dressing him in the same colors, and putting him on the same chair—though it’s been refurbished—for this photo.

Why Do I Feel Like They Were Both Trouble Growing Up

Look at that mischievous little grin both of them are sporting: I refuse to believe that this father and son duo were anything but trouble in their respective childhood years.

The Beard Is Doing The Heavy Lifting

The man on the right, age 33, tried to recreate a photo of his father at 39. While there similarities are clear in their features, the beard is really making them look like they could be brothers.

I would swear that this is simply a photo of the little girl, but it’s actually her mother from years before. They have the same features right down to the part in their bangs.

The left photo features two sisters from years ago. One of those girls is the mother of the two girls in the right photo, who look like a copy and paste image of their mother and aunt.
