The resemblance between some celebrity children and their famous parents is amazing. In the case of families like the Jolie Pitts, the Kardashians, the Stephenses (better known as the Legends), the Beckhams, the Wests, and the Smiths, good looks most definitely run in the family.
There are some celebrity kids who look so eerily similar to their parents that they’ve even been mistaken for siblings. That’s what happened with Reese Witherspoon’s daughter, Ava Philippe, who looks just like her mom’s twin now that she’s all grown up!
As toddlers and children, it’s trickier to see such close similarities sometimes, but when these kids reach adulthood, they can end up really looking like slightly younger versions of their moms and dads. We can tell already that North West is going to look like another Kanye when she’s older, and Blue Ivy Carter is going to look like her father, Jay-Z.
There’s no denying the likeness between Brooklyn Beckham and his father David, or Suri Cruise, and her mom, Katie Holmes.
Check out this list of celebrity children who look exactly like their famous parents. We had to do a few double takes every now and then, just to make sure we weren’t looking at twins!
25 Blue Ivy Carter Looks Like Jay-Z
The daughter of music legends Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Blue Ivy Carter is one of the most famous celebrity children on the planet. While as a baby she looked like a total blend of her mom and dad, the older she gets, the more she looks like a mini Jay-Z!
We can still see some of Beyoncé in there, but she is definitely her father’s daughter. The couple has two more children, twins Sir and Rumi, but there are too few pictures of them to tell which parent they look like more. We guess time will tell!
24 Suri Cruise Looks Like Katie Holmes
Following the split of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Katie gained custody of their daughter, Suri, with Tom being permitted to see his daughter for ten days a month. Some sources claim that Tom doesn’t have a lot to do with Suri now, suggesting that his religious views prevent him from bonding with her.
That may be the reason why we only ever see her photographed with Katie. And when you see them side by side, it’s easy to tell that they are total twins!
23 Shiloh Jolie-Pitt Looks Like Angelina Jolie
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, the first biological child of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, is certainly growing up. Though she has her father’s famous blonde locks, her face is all Angelina! Everything from the eyes to the smile screams the Maleficent actress.
Although they have now split, Angelina and Brad also share Maddox, Zahara, Pax, and twins Vivienne and Knox. The Jolie-Pitt children are all encouraged to embrace their own styles and individuality and feel comfortable in their own skin rather than trying to live up to the expectations of others. Which is good news, considering how strong the family genes are.
22 Kate Hudson Looks Like Goldie Hawn
Now she’s a celebrity in her own right, but Kate Hudson was born to Goldie Hawn, one of the most successful actresses of her era. And boy, can we see the family resemblance here!
Their golden hair is a giveaway of their shared genes, but these two also share the same face shape, eyes, and warm smile. Plus, it’s clear that Kate took after her famous mama where her talent as an actress is concerned as they both know how to nail those comedic scenes.
21 Apple Martin Looks Like Gwyneth Paltrow
We don’t get to see a lot of photos of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s children, but from what we’ve seen, it’s clear that daughter Apple has definitely taken after her actress mother!
Apple is lucky in that both her parents are genetically blessed, but she really looks like the spitting image of Gwyneth with just a dash of Chris in there. Now 14 years old, Apple has started opening up to her parents about her feelings as she becomes a teenager and even recently clapped back at Gwyneth for posting her photo on IG without her consent.
20 Lily-Rose Depp Looks Like Vanessa Paradis
If we look really hard at Lily-Rose Depp, we can see how she’s Johnny Depp’s daughter. There is some Johnny in there! But more so, she looks overwhelmingly like her mom, who is from France, Johnny’s ex-partner, Vanessa Paradis.
Everything from the hair to the eyes to the smile is all Vanessa! Now, Lily-Rose’s brother Jack Depp, on the other hand, is definitely his father’s son. You can tell that the older he gets, the more he looks like a young Johnny from the early 1990s.
19 Violet Affleck Looks Like Jennifer Garner
Before ending their marriage, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck had three children together: eldest daughter Violet, middle daughter Seraphina, and son Samuel. To an extent, all of the kids look like a mix between their famous parents. But Violet is the closest to her mom.
Although there is still some Ben coming through, she really looks like a little clone of Jennifer! Jen has opened up about her parenting style in the past and tries to instill healthy habits into all of her kids, so hopefully they take after her in that way, too.
18 Lila Moss Looks Like Kate Moss
We had to do a second take of this shot of Kate Moss and her daughter Lila to make sure we weren’t seeing double! These two look so strikingly similar, it’s a little weird! And looks aren’t the only thing Lila has in common with her mama.
The aspiring model has already appeared on her very first magazine cover at the tender age of 16. Impressive! She is the new cover star for a publication called Dazed, which was co-founded by her father, Jefferson Hack.
17 Ava Phillippe Looks Like Reese Witherspoon
Talk about doing double takes—we could have sworn we were looking at twins here! Reese Witherspoon was only in her early 20s when she gave birth to her first two children, Ava and Deacon. We guess that’s why these days, she still looks like she could be their sister!
Although both Ava and Deacon have elements of their father in them, Ava looks a lot more like her mom. It sure would be easy to get these two confused in a crowded room! We'd hazard a guess that Ava can't go out in public without people knowing exactly who she is.
16 Brooklyn Beckham Looks Like David Beckham
The Beckhams are another brood who have great genetics behind them. The chances of any of these kids not being born with the looks of a Greek god were slim to none!
The oldest son of David and Victoria Beckham (one of the most famous athletes in the world and a former Spice Girl, respectively), Brooklyn, looks the most like his soccer star father out of his famous brothers and sister. While some of his siblings have taken after their mother, Brooklyn looks like a younger David.
15 Freddie Reign Tomlinson Looks Like Louis Tomlinson
Louis Tomlinson was the first member of boyband One Direction to become a father. He and Briana Jungwirth welcomed a son, Freddie Reign Tomlinson, in 2016, and the toddler is essentially a 3-year-old Louis. They have the same blue eyes and the same cheeky face!
Following his success with 1D, Louis went through some challenging times—he lost his mom, Joanna Deakin, in 2016 after a year-long battle with leukemia. Most recently, on March 15, 2019, Louis lost his little sister Félicité after she experienced cardiac arrest.
14 Emme Muñiz Looks Like Jennifer Lopez
J.Lo’s twins look like a combo of their famous mother and father, singer Marc Anthony. But we think Emme definitely looks like a mini Jenny from the Block! It’s hard to believe that the twins are now 11 years old—we remember when they were born! But the more Emme grows, the more she looks just like mom.
Now that she is in a long-term relationship with Alex Rodriguez, who has two children of his own called Ella and Natasha, Jennifer has joined her family with Alex’s and they are parenting their kids as a united team.
13 Mason Disick Looks Like Kourtney Kardashian
Everybody says that Mason Disick, the first child of the new generation of Kardashians, looks like his father, Scott Disick. Is it just us, or can we see a lot more of his mother, Kourtney Kardashian, in him?
While Kourtney does look similar to her mother, Kris Jenner, she also inherited a lot of physical traits from her father, the late Robert Kardashian Sr. And we can see those strong Kardashian genes in Mason, as well as in some of the other Kardashian kiddies. Mason looks more Kardashian to us, while his siblings Penelope and Reign seem to take after the Disick side.
12 Luna Stephens Looks Like John Legend
Be still our hearts! John Legend’s daughter Luna looks like a little clone of him, and it’s adorable. Luna’s mother is John’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, so you might be wondering why her last name is Stephens and not Teigen or Legend. As it turns out, Legend is just a stage name, and John’s birth name was actually John Stephens. So there you go!
John and Chrissy also have a son, Miles, who is still too little to really tell which parent he has taken after more! That said, we're rotting for another mini-John!
11 Willow Smith Looks Like Jada Pinkett Smith
Her name was inspired by Will and she inherited his talent for entertainment and performance, but we think that Willow Smith should thank her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, for her good looks.
She isn’t all Jada, and we can still see some Will in her, including her eye shape, her ears, and her height. But she still looks like a Jada imitator! These two also share a very close bond and get real about lots of different subjects on their show Red Table Talk, so it's not just looks that has them seeming close.
10 North West Looks Like Kanye West
Okay, those Kardashian genes may be strong, but the West genes seem to be even stronger! From what we can tell, all of Kim and Kanye’s kids look more like their father, and eldest daughter North is like a smaller version of her famous dad.
They have the same face, although we can detect a hint of Kim in there too. In one episode of KUTWK, Kanye commented on how good North is with color, so she may also have inherited her father’s talent and aptitude for art.
9 Luca Comrie Looks Like Hilary Duff
If you look at photos of a young Hilary Duff—even before Lizzie McGuire, in the days of Casper Meets Wendy—you’ll see that she looked exactly like her 6-year-old son Luca! We can’t see much of Luca’s father, Mike Comrie, in him—he looks all Duff to us!
Hilary once revealed on Good Morning America that her son found out she’s a celebrity in the schoolyard. “He said it with, like, a little glint in his eye, like somebody told him something that I haven’t,” she recalled.
8 Flynn Bloom Looks Like Orlando Bloom
Flynn Bloom is another celebrity child who has luck on his side when it comes to inheriting genes from his parents. He was either going to take after his supermodel mom or his handsome actor father, and it looks like the latter happened!
Orlando Bloom doesn’t often share photos of his son, who he had with his ex, Miranda Kerr, and when he does, Flynn’s face is mostly covered. But from the few times we have seen him, it’s easy to tell that he closely resembles his famous father, hair and all!
7 James Reynolds Looks Like Blake Lively
James Reynolds may carry the name of her father, Ryan Reynolds, but she is the spitting image of her famous mother, Blake Lively. Fans were left a little confused after Blake and Ryan revealed that they’d named their daughter James, which is traditionally seen as a masculine name.
But James was named after Ryan’s father, as she was born just after Ryan patched up his tension-filled relationship with his dad. And luckily, James did get to meet his granddaughter before he passed away in 2015.
6 Kendall Jenner Looks Like Kris Jenner
We can see a little bit of Kris Jenner in all of the Kardashian and Jenner girls. But we feel that the sister who inherited most of Kris’s genes is second-youngest daughter Kendall, who is pretty much Kris in her early 20s!
The other daughter who looks a lot like her mom would be Kim, who shares the shape of her face and her big eyes with her mom. Kendall is still technically a celebrity's child because Kris gained fame, along with all the other members of her family, on their reality show!
5 Damian Hurley Looks Like Elizabeth Hurley
If you feel like you’ve seen aspiring model Damian Hurley somewhere before, it’s because he’s basically a replica of his famous mother, actress Elizabeth Hurley. Born in 2002, Damian started working as an actor in 2016 when he starred as Prince Hansel von Lichtenstein in The Royals.
In 2018, he was signed to Tess Management modeling agency, and we are expecting to see much more of him in the years to come! His father is Steve Bing, a US businessman, and his godfathers include Hugh Grant, David Beckham, and Elton John.
4 Gigi Hadid Looks Like Yolanda Hadid
Fate just decided that the Hadid children were going to be supermodels when their mom, supermodel Yolanda, married Mohamed Hadid. While middle sister Bella and youngest son Anwar, look like they’ve taken after their real-estate mogul father, oldest child Gigi looks like another Yolanda!
These two are twinning on all fronts, from the blonde locks to the face shape. Most people don’t realize that Bella is actually a natural blonde too, but actually dyes her hair dark to set her apart from her older sister.
3 Honor Warren Looks Like Jessica Alba
We can definitely see some of Cash Warren in Jessica Alba’s daughter, Honor, but as she grows up, she’s turning into a mini version of her mother! Jessica met producer Cash while they were both working on the film Fantastic Four in 2004.
Honor is the eldest of three children, and a sister to Haven Warren and Hayes Warren. At this point, it seems that Haven has taken after her dad more so than her mom, and it’s too early to tell with Hayes whether he’s going to be more Jessica or more Cash!
2 Harlow Madden Looks Like Nicole Richie
From the first photos that ever emerged of Harlow Madden, it was clear that she had inherited her mom’s good looks. In March 2018, Harlow was spotted accompanying her famous mother, Nicole Richie, to the Women’s March in Los Angeles, so it looks like she’s taking after more than just Nicole’s looks!
Nicole may be passing on her beliefs and values to her daughter as well, which is a good thing. Harlow and Nicole were dressed similarly in jeans and t-shirts, which added to the twin factor.
1 Knox Jolie-Pitt Looks Like Brad Pitt
Given that Knox is a twin, it’s a little odd that he looks the most like his famous dad out of his siblings. But while Vivienne appears to be a mix of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Knox seems like a Brad clone.
The twins aren’t identical, but fraternal, meaning they were born from two eggs rather than from one that split into two. Being children five and six for the Jolie Pitts, who split in 2016, Knox and Vivienne are the youngest of the brood, but also two of only three with biological ties to their parents.
