Celebrity kids are just like us! Well, except for the millions of dollars in the bank. But besides that, they have to deal with being compared to their parents time and time again, and not just by an eccentric aunt, but by the whole world that's literally watching them grow up in the Hollywood spotlight.
Some of these kids and young adults look like mirror images of their successful parents, to the point where paparazzi and photo-hungry fans must get confused. All it takes is one picture (or 15 of them) to notice the similarities between these celebrity children and their parents.
We put together 15 side-by-side comparisons as well as five child-parent pairs that look nothing alike. (Seriously, where did Penelope Disick get her blonde hair from? Where did Jessica Alba's daughter Haven get red hair from?) Needless to say, pop-culture fans will be surprised by some of the genetic results. But in the end, all these kids are so stinkin' cute that it doesn't even matter if they look like mommy or daddy. Chrissy Teigen's daughter has the most adorable cheeks while Steph Curry's little one has the most mischievous personality that steals the limelight away from her NBA rockstar father. Just wait and see!
20 Ava Phillippe
Wait, am I looking at a reflection in the mirror? Nope. That's actress Reese Witherspoon (from Sweet Home Alabama and Legally Blonde) and her daughter Ava. She was born on September 9, 1999 — the same year Reese tied the knot to actor Ryan Phillippe. The pair were married until 2007, but then in 2011, Reese remarried to Jim Toth.
Ava is the spitting image of her mother, with their blonde hair and blue eyes. In some photos, they'll even smirk or smile the exact same way.
19 Luna Legend
Luna Legend, the daughter of singer/pianist John Legend and model Chrissy Teigen, is only 2 years old and she already looks like both of her strikingly good-looking parents. In this picture you can tell Luna's adorable cheeks are the exact same as Chrissy and John's. If I were to ask Chrissy, she'd say Luna takes after her father more, though. The supermodel even shared a throwback picture on Instagram to when John was a baby to show off their resemblance.
18 Kaia Gerber
This family obviously has no shortage of good genes. See the stunning woman on the right? Yeah, that's supermodel Cindy Crawford. She's posed for GUESS campaigns, Versace, and Revlon billboard ads — just to name a few casual accomplishments. And now, daughter Kaia, whose father is businessman Rande Gerber, has followed in her footsteps. Kaia has walked the runway all over the world. from Milan to Paris to New York for Fashion Week. She may not have her mother's iconic beauty mark right above the lip, but she still looks exactly like her!
17 Blue Ivy Carter
It looks like Blue Ivy is giving Queen Bey a run for her money — and the crown! Wherever Blue Ivy goes, she steals the spotlight with her heart-warming facial expressions. There are tons of memes of her on the Internet from when Jay Z revealed that he snook around on Beyonce with "Becky with the good hair." Blue Ivy has the nose and lips of her rapper father and the eyes of her "Crazy In Love" mother; she's a literal combination of the two.
16 Miley Cyrus
We don't see Tish Cyrus nearly as much as Miley or her father (and country music superstar) Billy Ray on the red carpet. That's because Tish prefers to do behind-the-scenes work, like producing some of the movies her daughter has starred in, including The Last Song where Miley and Liam Hemsworth met and eventually started dating. Tish and Miley also worked together on the film LOL and So Undercover. They have the same eye shape, eye color, and smile! But Miley's voice probably comes from her dad.
15 Riley Curry
Look at this cutie! This photo perfectly captures the similar facial features and expressions between basketball legend Steph Curry and his daughter Riley. It goes without saying that Steph has millions of fans around the world, but Riley is his biggest one. With her mother Ayesha, she attends most of Steph's home games and will even sit on his lap during the post-game press interviews. Little Riley has been known to accidentally knock the microphone down one or two times, but who cares when she's this adorable?
14 Saint West
Quick — name a more famous parenting dynamic duo! Go on... Oh wait, that doesn't exist. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are proud to three children: North, Saint, and Chicago (Chicago who was born via surrogate and is the newest addition to the million-dollar family). Saint is the one in the middle, and oh my goodness look at those cheeks. They look just like Kanye's when he smiles, which is a pretty rare instance for the "Flashing Lights" rapper. I can't wait to see who Chicago resembles more when she gets a little older.
13 Brooklyn Beckham
David and Victoria Beckham are the epitome of British royalty. Come on, think about it. One of the world's greatest soccer (oh, sorry, football) players married a Spice Girl. Posh Spice, to be exact. It doesn't get better than that for pop culture in the United Kingdom.
The couple married in 1999 and have been together ever since, which is a lifetime in Hollywood. Together, they have three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz, who all look similar to their dad. They also have a daughter named Harper who takes after Victoria.
12 Willow Smith
Have you ever noticed that Willow was (kind of) named after her father, Will Smith? And Jaden was named after his mother, Jada Pinkett? Mind. Blown.
Jada and Willow both have beautiful almond-shaped hazel eyes with cheekbones that could cut ice. They also seem to have the same lip shape in this picture. Meanwhile, bother Jaden looks exactly like Will. Both Willow and Jaden followed in their parents' footsteps to become famous singers, models, and actors. This family is like one big triple threat!
11 Suri Cruise
From this picture alone, we can tell Suri is the literal mini-me version of actress Katie Holmes. Same hair color, same eye shape, and just look at that smile. Suri is also the daughter to Mission Impossible actor Tom Cruise, but where has he been? It's been a long time since Suri and her dad were photographed out together. If the tabloids have anything to say about it, it's because of Tom's association with Scientology, but we'll never really know what goes on behind closed doors.
10 Shiloh Jolie-Pitt
Such a worldly family! Actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie has adopted children from all over the world; from Vietnam with son Pax to Cambodia with son Maddox. Biological daughter Shiloh, who was born in Namibia, has Angie's signature big lips, smile, and bright blue eyes. Like her mother, Shiloh is a big trendsetter in the family. She's a tomboy who loves rocking short hair and wearing suits to red carpet events, as well as oversized ACDC hoodies on her relaxed days at home.
9 Maya Hawke
Despite having two famous parents, Maya lives a pretty low-key life away from the Hollywood spotlight. She's the daughter of Kill Bill actress Uma Thurman and Training Day actor Ethan Hawke. From her hair to her eyes and smile, Maya is the spitting image of Uma. It also appears she's caught the acting bug just like her parents. Maya starred in smaller roles as Jo March in Little Women and Romy in Ladyworld before appearing in hit TV series Stranger Things as the character Robin.
8 Liv Moore
Man, it must be so much fun to hang out with Julianne Moore and her daughter Liv. Look at them cheering and having a blast at the basketball game! Besides the obvious similarity to her actress mother (their reddish-brown hair color), Liv and Julianne have intentionally matched each other's style on more than one occasion. In March 2018, the two stepped out in New York City wearing identical black puffer jackets and blue denim jeans. They've also worn similar black dresses at red carpet events.
7 Carys Zeta-Douglas
At only 15 years old, Carys Zeta-Jones is already a globetrotter breaking into the fashion industry. She's been walking the red carpet with her A-list parents, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, for years; so it's no surprise that she stepped out with her mother for New York Fashion Week in September.
Carys and Catherine styled their long brown hair the exact same way, with a center part down the middle and sultry beach waves. As for Carys' brother Dylan, well, he looks just like Michael, of course!
6 Apple Martin
Apple is the daughter of Iron Man actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin. Like both of her parents, she has big, bright blue eyes and blonde hair. But come on, we'd have to be blind not to notice that Apple and mommy look like identical twins in this picture while watching a sports game from behind the net. Gwyneth and the "Sky Full Of Stars" singer are also parents to son Moses, who looks like more a mix between the two. But sweet Apple? She's all Gwyneth!
5 Benjamin Brady
Okay, now we're moving onto the next five children who look nothing like their parents. First up is the lucky Benjamin, who gets to brag about his dad, Tom Brady, being one of America's best football stars and his mom, Gisele Bündchen, being one of the most gorgeous models in the world. No big deal. As adorable as Benjamin is, he doesn't take strongly after either parent. The only thing similar in this picture is his and Tom's hairstyle with bangs coming down the forehead.
4 Ireland Baldwin
The Baldwin empire is like the OG Kardashian empire; so many siblings, so many children. There are three Baldwin brothers who've each gone on to have children of their own... some of them already grown. This here is 30 Rock actor Alec Baldwin and his daughter Ireland, a fashion model and aspiring actress. She may have her father's blue eyes, but the rest is a toss-up. They have different noses and lip shapes. If anything, she looks slightly more like her mother, Kim Basinger.
3 Sophia, Sistine, And Scarlet Stallone
Well done, Sylvester Stallone. Sistine, Scarlet, and Sophia are the daughters of Jennifer Flavin, a former model, and current entrepreneur and business owner, and the Rocky actor. Over the course of his career, Sylvester has put his body through the ringer as he's known for performing most of his own stunts, one of which resulted in an injured neck on the set of The Expendables. His daughters, on the other hand, have more delicate and dainty features. After all, they say the face is the money maker!
2 Penelope Disick
Have you been Keeping Up With The Kardashians? Reality stars Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian are loving parents to Mason, Penelope, and Reign (and there's apparently a possibility for more kids in the future!). Eldest Mason has dark brown hair like both his parents, but middle child Penelope is straight up blonde! Where did she get that from? Kourtney has gone blonde before but it's not of natural causes. This family does have some of the best hair stylists, after all. Youngest child Reign shockingly has lighter hair, too.
1 Haven Warren
Fantastic 4 actress Jessica Alba and producer Cash Warren have three little ones in the nest: Honor, Hayes, and Haven. Their oldest daughter, Honor, looks like the spitting image to the Honest Beauty creator. Little Haven, on the other hand, was born with bright orange hair that doesn't come from mommy or daddy, who both have dark brown locks. As she's gotten older, it's taken on more a brownish hue, but it was legit pastel orange when she was a baby. She does have her mother's deep-set brown eyes, though!
