Looking just like their mums, these daughters are proof mother really does know best! See if you can tell them apart
Talk about peas in a pod! You’d be forgiven for thinking that Reese and her daughter Ava were actually twins looking at this picture.
Okay, so we might be showing our age, but we remember when Ava was born back in 1999 – and we still can’t quite believe that she’s all grown up already!
Reese shared this snap of herself and her grown up girl on her Instagram account, along with the caption: ‘Mother daughter time’
Beautiful Ava’s definitely got very similar features to her mum, but we can see a little bit of dad Ryan Phillipe in her face too. With two brothers (Deacon, Reese’s son with Phillipe, and Tennessee, her youngest with new husband Jim Toth) in the family, it’s nice to see Reese and Ava getting in a bit of girl time!

This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby shared a selfie on Instagram with her mum Lynne – and now we can see where Holly gets her youthful good looks from!
In the picture the mother and daughter look very similar, with matching hair colours and beaming smiles. Holly posted the picture with her outfit pick of the day, alongside a comment saying: ‘Thursday’s look on @itvthismorning features a special appearance from mumma willoughby!’
Holly previously admitted to the Daily Mirror that she talks to her mum all the time: ‘I still run everything past her. If I’m about to buy a pair of shoes I’ll go, “Mum, do you think I should be doing this?”‘
Those are some good Willoughby genes that’s for sure!
Shortly after her 10th birthday it looked like Suri Cruise has developed an interest in her mum’s work, while looking more and more like her every day, too!
Proud mum Katie Holmes shared a sweet black and white Instagram snap of her and daughter Suri on set of her new TV series The Kennedys: After Camelot, in which Katie played former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
In the picture the pair are sitting side by side with matching headphones looking intently at something, with almost identical expressions. And ever the professional Suri even has her very own director’s chair with her name printed on it.
Katie captioned her post ‘My sweetie #setlife #gratitude.’
Courtney Cox’s daughter, Coco Arquette, looks the spitting image of her mum.
Having been rarely photographed in public before, Coco was spotted out and about while she was celebrating her 12th birthday with mum Courtney. And it wasn’t just any old bash, the almost-teenager held her celebrations at celeb-haunt Nobu in Malibu.
Blessed with her mum and dad’s gorgeous features it looks like Coco is set to be a real heartbreaker!
Turns out Lorraine Kelly is another celeb mum who has a definite mini-me.
Lorraine’s daughter, Rosie Smith, looks just like her famous mum, don’t you think? With very similar statures, matching face shapes and the same broad smile and chestnut hair the pair looked the spitting image of each other on the pink carpet for Lorraine’s High Street Fashion Awards in London.
The singer shared this rare snap of herself and her then four-year-old daughter, Willow Sage, on the way to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, captioning it: ‘Hey @theellenshow you’re #1 and #2 fans are on their way #todaystheday #JustLikeFire’
Fans were just as surprised as we were to see Willow looking so grown up, with one exclaiming ‘When did she get so big?!’
With their matching sweet smiles, the pair are two peas in a pod. The older she gets, Pink Junior is looking more and more like her mama – and when your mum looks this great, it’s definitely no bad thing!
In this snap, proud mum Geri explained to fans that she was on a ‘train adventure’ day out with 10 year old Bluebell and their two dogs.
The former Spice Girl gave birth to Bluebell in May 2006 after a brief relationship with screenwriter Sacha Gervasi and fans were quick to comment on how much Bluebell takes after her parents.
The daughter of actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay front-man Chris Martin looks the spitting image of her beautiful parents in this snap!
Proud-mum Gwyneth shared the natural-looking photo with her 1.7 million Instagram fans just before ex-hubby Chris performed during the Superbowl half-time with Beyonce in 2016.
Despite a ‘concious uncoupling‘ back in 2014, Chris and Gwyneth still spend a lot of time together, even sleeping at each other’s houses according to Gwyn.
How cute is Abbey’s little girl?
The model shared this photo of her daughter while on a beach break in Dubai, with the caption ‘Beach Bunny’. And even though Sophia has long brown locks, she already looks like a super adorable mini version of her gorgeous mum – good genes run in the family, huh?
We couldn’t quite believe the similarity before our eyes when Kerry Katona posted these pics of her then 12-year-old daughter Lilly Sue to Twitter.
The pre-teen had obviously been having fun with Kerry’s makeup bag as the mum of five captioned the pictures: ‘Lilly been in my makeup.looks beautiful,but she has all the time in the world to be a grownUp…..ButWhatAStunner X [sic]’
We couldn’t agree more!
Well how about this for a blast from the past! We almost didn’t recognise 80s glam Goldie Hawn with her fantastic perm and rock star shades. And look at the very little Kate Hudson!
Kate shared this picture of her and her mum Goldie on Instagram, with the caption: #tbt Mama Goldie killin it 80’s style As for me…I think I still have that puffy jacket somewhere 😉 #LoveMeAPuffyJacket #80s #MamaAndMe #MamaGoldie
Even as a toddler Blue Ivy was proving that she’s just as stylish as her songstress mum. How adorable does the three year old look in these flower sunglasses?
The family were holidaying on a luxury yacht in Europe, with Beyonce posting the intimate pics of the family on her instagram feed.
The snaps of Blue Ivy also showed her getting her toe nails painted on board the ship and cuddling up with dad Jay-Z – could they get any cuter?
At eight years old, how much did Princess look like her mummy? It’s uncanny!
Katie shared this cute snap of her eldest daughter to her account with the caption:
‘My gorgeous little Princess mini me loving her @cherieboutiquex outfit’
Mini me indeed – she’s definitely got her mum’s posing skills and pout down to a tee!
It’s actually a little spooky how similar Una Foden and her daughter, Aoife Belle, look like one another – even though Aoife was only three in this pic!
Una, who’s also mum to son Tadhg John, shared the sweet picture to her Instagram account with the caption: #minime #aoifebelle
The Saturdays singer can often be seen posting snaps of her children on her Instagram account, as well as her husband – rugby star Ben Foden.
Girls, we admire your selfie skills – beautiful!
When Downton Abbey was coming to an end (sob!), BAFTA honoured the cast with a special award as they filmed their final scenes.
The actors turned out on the red carpet to celebrate, and for Michelle Dockery, who plays Lady Mary in the hit ITV drama, there was only one person she wanted to bring as a date – her mum Lorraine!
Michelle posted a picture of the pair on Instagram, writing alongside ‘Me and my best friend last night @BAFTA #Mum❤’Looking at the two side by side, we can certainly see where Michelle gets her dark eyes and lovely smile from, and with their matching monochrome outfits the similarity is even stronger.
The ginger hair, the cheeky grin, the rosy cheeks! Yes, there’s no doubt that this friendly-looking lady raised a Spice Girl!
We just can’t keep up with these mother/daughter pairs, they all look so alike!
Jennifer Saunders has three daughters, Ella, Beattie (pictured) and Freya, with her comedian husband, Ade Edmondson. And all three of them look so similar, you’d find it hard to tell them apart.
Aw, how sweet are these two?
American actress Milla and her eldest daughter, Ever Gabo, then 7, looked to be having loads of fun on a ride together in Paris, and we couldn’t believe how much little Ever had taken after her famous mum.
The actress gave birth to her second daughter Dashiel Edan on 1 April 2015 – and we bet she follows in these girls’ gorgeous footsteps too!
It looks like three-year-old Faith was taking straight after her famous mummy in this picture.
She’s inherited the exact same chin, mouth and nose as Michelle, and it looked like she was already a complete natural at posing for the camera, too.
We’re sure Carol Vorderman is always proud of her kids, but she had one extra reason to be proud of daughter Katie in this snap – because she’d just graduated from Cambridge University!
Carol posted the picture on her Twitter account with the caption: ‘An M.A. (Cantab) and an M.Sci (Cantab).Girls CAN do Engineering/Physics/Chemistry & love it #Cambridge #Mum&Daughter’Not only do the pair look incredibly similar in this picture, they now have yet another thing in common, as Carol herself graduated from Cambridge with a degree in Engineering in 1981.
Talk about following in your mum’s footsteps, Katie!
You just can’t beat a mother/daughter day out – something it seems Mel B and 15-year-old Phoenix definitely knew to be true, judging by these pics!
The mother of three shared the snaps on her Instagram account with the caption: ‘Fun mother daughter day today,right @phoenixisphoenix hahaha love you,remember your never to old for kisses and hugs’
We love to think of Mel as being a bit of an embarrassing mum like us, smothering her kids in kisses and hugs!
Woah there – in this picture, Rumer is just 26 years old, whilst Demi is 52, but you’d be forgiven for thinking that this mother and daughter duo were twins!
Rumer, Demi’s eldest child with ex-husband Bruce Willis, shared this picture on her Instagram account, captioning it: ‘That moment when you realize you actually are becoming your mother #twinning #imnotmad’
We have to say, even without their identical hairstyles, glasses and jumpsuit, Rumer is definitely the spit of her famous mum – just look at those chiselled cheekbones!
Usually we’re saying how much Myleene’s little girls Ava and Hero look like her, but it turns out those good genes run further back in the family too – check out how similar she looks to her own mum, Magdalena!
Myleene posted this cute picture of the pair in honour of her mother’s 68th birthday, writing alongside:
‘The lady that inspires me every single day…..Happy 68th to my beautiful Mama! Check the Asian genes! #beigedontage #birthday #family’
Take off those glasses and we’d have to double check who was who – you look great for 68, Mama Klass!
Goodness, for a minute there we thought these two could have been sisters!
Kym and her eldest daughter, Emilie, made a joint appearance on the red carpet at the British Soap Awards in 2015, and didn’t they look alike?
There’s actually a whole 21 years between them, but you’d be forgiven for thinking they were much closer in age.
From the full head of brunette locks to their big mid-brown eyes, you could some strong similarities between Jacqueline and daughter Ella pretty early on! The pretty soap actress loved to share pics of her baby girl on her Instagram page, and we’re so glad – aren’t they the cutest?
Jacqueline welcomed little Ella to the world back in February 2015 with boyfriend Dan Osborne, who rose to fame in hit show TOWIE.
Blimey – we just had to do a massive double take! How much do Meryl Streep’s daughters Mamie and Grace look like their famous mum?
The girls, pictured at the New York premiere of the film Far From the Madding Crowd in 2015, have almost exactly the same nose, eyes and facial structure as Meryl – and it seems that they might follow in her footsteps when it comes to their careers, as both of them have a handful of acting roles to their names already.
Meryl also has an elder son Henry, and another daughter, Louisa – both of whom look incredibly similar to their mum as well. Looks like the genes run strong on the Streep side of the family!
We can’t believe the similarity between this photogenic mother-daughter pair.
Cindy was first model scouted at the age of 16 by a newspaper photographer, and her 16-year-old daughter Kaia had her first modelling job at just 10 years old.
Oh and coincidentally, Cindy turned 49 the year this picture was taken. Not. Jealous. At. All.
Look at these matching jetsetters!
This Morning presenter Rochelle posted this sweet pic of her and her then 21-month-old little girl on her Instagram account, and don’t they look the spit of one another?
And we can’t help but wonder what Alaia’s had in that little Peppa Pig suitcase of hers. A kilo of Custard Creams perhaps? Or 28 copies of The Tiger Who Came To Tea? Either way, we bet she’s got her overnight bag priorities sorted.
Kate’s only child, Lila Grace, is rarely seen out in public so it was lovely to spot her on the red carpet for the Paddington premiere with her fashionista mum.
Jessica Simpson’s gorgeous daughter Maxwell is the absolute spit of her famous mummy. These pics, taken from Jessica’s Instagram, show Maxwell has inherited her mum’s famous blonde locks, square jawline and even the pout too!
Maxwell, who was two at the time these pictures were taken, is Jessica’s first-born child with her husband, former American football player Eric Johnson. The pair are also parents to son Ace.
How pretty are this pair?
Jessica’s six-year-old little girl, Honor, looked the absolute spit of her gorgeous mummy in this picture taken from her Instagram, and they even dressed the same!
Jessica, 33, gave birth to Honor in 2008, and is her first child with her husband, Cash Warren. They welcomed a second little girl in 2011, who they named Haven.
These two could pass as sisters!
Coronation Street star, Kym, posted the pic of her and 16-year-old daughter, Emilie, on her Twitter account with the caption:
Aw, this rather rare, innocent snap of Miley Cyrus cuddling up to her mum in New York is quite sweet, and don’t they look alike?
Whilst Miley’s been trying to put across a more, erm, grown-up image recently, this picture proves that the 20-year-old still needs her mum just the same as everyone else.
Miley’s mum, Tish, who’s 54, posted this snap on her Instagram account as she accompanied Miley to her performance on the Today show.
Keep up to date with Miley Cyrus‘ latest antics over at Now Magazine online.
How gorgeous is this picture of Gisele Bundchen’s 10-month-old baby daughter, Vivian, copying her mum’s yoga pose?
Gisele shared the snap on her Instagram account with the caption, ‘Good morning! Getting ready for work. #quickmeditation #grateful.’
It looks like this little one’s going to grow up to be just like Mummy – and she already has her own colourful yoga mat!
Aww how lovely is this picture of Sharon Osbourne with her daughter Kelly? The pair were attending the 20th Annual Race to Erase MS in Los Angeles when the snap was taken. Well, we don’t know about you, but we think they’re like two peas in a pod.
We had to do a double take when we saw this picture of Reese Witherspoon out and about in LA with her daughter, Ava, 13. Not only does Ava look the spit of Reese, but they even share the same style. Both mother and daughter sported dark jumpers complete with Hollywood-worthy dark shades.
Did you see how similar Charlie Brooks and her gorgeous daughter Kiki are? The I’m A Celeb… star was gutted after missing out on the chance to see her mini-me in the jungle during the Door to Door game, in which she was stood just metres away from Kiki without knowing. Kiki looked really disapointed she didn’t get to see her mum, but there’s not long until they’ll be reunited now.
Spice Girl Geri Halliwell was spotted out and about with her five-year-old daughter Bluebell Madonna in the capital this week. The pair sported matching poses as they walked side by side in London. Bluebell shares her mother’s blonde locks as well as having a similar shaped face.
Victoria Beckham and her mum Jackie share the same shape mouth and similar chins but Vic’s face is longer and they have different coloured eyes. Victoria and her mum are notoriously close with the former Spice Girl throwing an almighty party at London’s five-star Claridge’s for Jackie’s 60th birthday. She is also said to send her mum flowers all the time.
Check out those matching perms! While this pic of Kylie Minogue and her mum Carol was taken a long time ago there’s no mistaking the beauty genes running through this family. Both mum and daughter have the same noses and chins with Kylie’s lips being a bit more pronounced than Carol’s.
You can tell where Angelina Jolie gets her stunningly good looks from. She’s pictured here with her mother Marcheline Bertrand, who sadly lost her battle with ovarian cancer, aged 56 in 2007. Speaking about her mother, with whom she was very close, Angelina said: ‘She was the woman I related to, who had that elegance and strength for knowing what was right. Her name was Marcheline, but we used to call her Marshmallow, as a joke, because she was just the softest, most gentle woman in the world.’ Angelina even called one of her twins, Vivienne Marcheline in a tribute to her late mother.
Beyonce and her mum Tina both share the same womanly curves as well as similar eyes but Beyonce’s much taller and has a more narrow face. The pair are incredibly close with Beyonce being her mother’s maiden name which she say’s she is so proud to have as her own. Speaking about her mother’s influence on her life, Beyonce said: ‘My mum, Tina, taught me honesty, she also taught me, by example, the value of hard work and how to forgive’.
While Lily and her mum Alison don’t look that similar, it seems fame runs in their genes with Lily being an award-winning singer and mum an Oscar nominated film producer. In Lily’s words ‘Mum and I have a very odd connection’ but a connection nevertheless. They’re seen here at the launch of Lily’s ‘Lily Loves’ range at New Look in London.
Quirky for quirky. I wonder where Helena gets her wackiness? Pictured with her mother Elena in January at the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Los Angeles, both made quite an entrance in their dramatic dresses.
With her mum’s looks, Katie could be a TV personality too. She’s Carol’s daughter from her first marriage and although we haven’t heard
too much about her, after attending the Pride of Britain Awards with
her mum and wowing the press, we’re sure she’ll receive some offers.
Two-year-old Angel has already been inspired by her mum, who debuted her Rihanna-inspired undercut at the Brit Awards in February. Seen here in LA, the mini-Mel has a similar half-shaved do.
With her blond locks and big smile, Girls Aloud Sarah Harding looks a lot like her mum Marie Hardman, to whom she’s been really close since her parents separated when she was younger.
She’s often seen treating her to meals at posh London restaurants, and she celebrated her 27th birthday with a shopping trip with her mum and boyfriend Tom Crane.
TomKat’s little girl Suri is so cute, and just keeps getting cuter!
Taking after her mum in the style stakes, she’s inherited her love of fashion and make-up, and is often seen parading around in girly dresses and miniature heels.
Coleen Rooney and mother Colette McLoughlin are not only very close but look so alike as well. They’re often spotted out and about in Liverpool together, shopping at Coleen’s favourite boutique Cricket and pictured here at Ladies’ Day at Aintree racecourse.
When Wayne had footballing commitments in the UK last month, she took mum and younger brother Anthony on holiday with her to Barbados.
Naomi Campbell’s mother Valerie has not always approved of her daughter’s choices but they remain close.
‘We’ve had our disagreements over the years,’ Valerie says. ‘I’m not afraid to tell her when she is in the wrong. Naomi and I have always been close.’
Myleene’s 2 year old daughter with partner Graham Quinn – a former member of Hear’Say’s security team – looks more and more like her. The 31 year old mum has spoken honestly of her experiences of motherhood, saying ‘it’s a bloody hard job’
She’s also published a book about her experiences of being pregnant, called My Bump and Me: From Morning Sickness to Motherhood – An Honest Diary of My Pregnancy.
Cheryl’s known to be very close to her mum Joan with whom she shares a striking resemblance, and she even asked her to move into the home she shared with Ashley Cole last year.
She’s famously said: ‘I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t trust anybody in life except my mother and my dogs.’
Her mother is one of Hollywood’s most celebrated beauties and her father’s a chiselled male model, so it’s no wonder Nahla Ariela Aubrey is such a cutie.
Halle’s said: ‘ I like my body better since I became a mother. I feel sexier as a result of becoming a mother.’
Sharing Judy’s blonde locks and twinkly blue eyes, Chloe Madeley is following in mum’s footsteps and taking up the family business in front of the camera.
But while Judy tries to avoid a repeat of her infamous bra-flashing incident, Chloe likes to be seen in her undies, posing for lads’ mags and lingerie brands.
With blue blood in her veins, Princess Beatrice has certainly inherited her mother’s trademark flame red hair.
Working side-by-side with Fergie for several different charities, Princess Bea has plenty of her mum’s generous spirit, but luckily none of her dress sense!
Sharing legs, waists, and bouncy blonde hair, we wouldn’t say no to a set of hand-me-downs like these! With Twiggy’s iconic figure all part of the heirlooms for daughter Carly, it’s little wonder that she’s followed mum into modelling.
No mother/daughter lookalike gallery would be complete without an appearance from Lourdes and Madonna. The spitting image of her mother, Mini-Madge Lourdes loves fashion, spas, and yoga of course!
And with performing in her blood, it’s recently been reported that Lourdes will have a starring role in mum’s new music video. Could we have a new generation Material Girl on the rise? Watch this space?
With genes like this it doesn’t come as a shock to us that Lizzie has a natural flair for posing for the cameras. Following mum into modelling, Lizzie has Jerry’s striking looks, powerful figure, and pouty red-lipped smile. The stunning pair have even worked on several modelling campaigns together.
Sharing her porcelain complexion and elegant style, Gwyn not only takes after mum in the looks department, but also in her career too. Both ladies are award-winning film actresses, and have even recreated their relationship on screen as mother and daughter in the film Sylvia.
With acting in the genes, it’s no surprise that Finty takes after Judi by treading the boards both on stage and in television. Passed down distinctive elfish-looks and defined cheek-bones from mum, Finty and Judi frequently star side-by-side together in British films.
The spitting image of former Blue Peter presenter Janet, Sophie has her mum’s stunning looks with to-die-for cheek-bones.
Appearing with mum on Blue Peter as a child, Sophie inherited Janet’s love of performing and went for a career in music as a singer in several successful bands.
Following Sharon’s lead into the media spotlight starring with the rest of her family in the MTV reality show The Osbournes, Kelly’s certainly no stranger to the public eye.
Flamboyant, eccentric, and at times controversial, both mother and daughter share a playful dress sense and a quirky style.
