When you’re preggers, one of the most exciting things knowing that a baby is growing inside you is wondering what and whom he or she is going to look like.

 

Junior will surely be a blend of you and the hubs ― that much you know. But is he going to have your eyes and daddy’s nose or his mouth and your ears? And was it grandma’s chin you saw on the recent sonogram?

 

Genetics is an amazing thing, and it’s always cool to see parent-child lookalikes. But when you are a superstar with a child who bears an uncanny resemblance to you, that brings twinning to a whole new level.

 

Scroll through the photo gallery to discover the lucky little ones (and not-so-little ones) who have hit the DNA jackpot. You’ll surly agree that these genetically blessed offspring look strikingly like their gorgeous mums or dads.

#1 Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe

Like mother like daughter! Ava, 17, the child of Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon, 41, and her ex-husband and fellow actor Ryan Phillippe not only sports her mum’s features and golden locks, but also some of her mannerisms. In 2016, at the premiere of the movie Sing, which Reese lent her voice to, mummy and her mini-me were captured striking the same pose ― legs crossed and hand clasped in front. (Photo: Just Jared)

Kaia, 14, is the splitting image of her supermodel mum, Cindy Crawford, 51, down to her matching cascading brunette curls and signature smile. It’s clear that the teen will conquer the high fashion runways, just like her mama, who’s still a stunner. Kaia has been stepping in front of the camera since the tender age of 10 for big brands like Young Versace and Marc Jacobs. (Photo: www.bravotv.com)

Acting-singing legend Bette Midler, 71, has obviously passed on more than her acting chops to her only child Sophie von Haselberg, 30. The young actress, a graduate of Yale’s School of Drama and best known for her role in TV drama House of Cards, shares her mum’s matching nose and eyes and never fails to turn heads.

#4 Julianne Moore and Liv Helen Freundlich

She may only be 15, but Liv is an exact replica of her actress mum Julianne Moore, 56, right down to her flaming red hair, porcelain skin and beautiful freckles. It’s all about embracing your uniqueness, says Moore, of her special speckles. The Academy-Award winning actress created a New York Times-bestselling children’s book series about Freckleface Strawberry, fun laugh-out-loud stories about a young, feisty, freckled little lady who learns to love the skin she's in.

Ireland Baldwin, 21, the daughter of actress Kim Basinger, 63, resembles her actress mum so much that she was hand-picked to play the younger version of Basinger in the 2013 movie Grudge Match. The statuesque daughter, who calls Hollywood heavyweight Alec Baldwin, 59, dad, is making use of her mother’s legendary looks, slender legs and thick golden mane to wow the modelling world.

#7 Meryl Streep and Mamie Gummer

Looks like good genes and talent run deep in the Streep-Gummer family. Considered one of the greatest living actresses, Meryl Streep, 68, has not only passed on her classic features to her daughter Mamie Gummer, 34, but her acting skills as well. Not only has Mamie portrayed a younger version of her mum in the movie Evening, but she’s also carved a name for herself in the small screen with a recurring role in the drama The Good Wife and as the protagonist in Emily Owens M.D. (Photo: http://abcnews.go.com)

While her piercing blue eyes are all dad’s, Hollywood heartthrob, Brad Pitt, 53, Shiloh possesses her mother’s dramatic features, including that famous pout. (Photo: www.usmagazine.com)

Will the real Tom Hanks please stand up? The 61-year-old Academy award winner’s eldest son Colin, 39, has not only followed his debonair dad in the looks department, but has also embraced an acting career.

#11 Will Smith and Jaden Smith

Step aside, Fresh Prince. There’s a pretender to the throne and his name is Jaden Smith. The 19-year-old looks like a carbon copy of his hip-hop mogul/actor dad Will Smith, 48. Young master Smith isn’t just the proud bearer of daddy’s dashingly good genes, including those big goofy ears, bedroom eyes and sassy swag, the dynamic duo have also lit up the big screen together by appearing in three movies together.

Actress Uma Thurman, 47, has impacted her 19-year-old daughter Maya Thurman-Hawke’s life in more ways than one. Besides inheriting her mum’s sandy blonde hair, luscious lips and captivating eyes, the young lady has also picked up a style tip or two from her former model mum.

Even more impressive is that these self-proclaimed BFFs have great chemistry and genuinely enjoy each other’s company.

#14 David Beckham and Brooklyn Beckham

The “Like father, like son” saying rings true when it comes to the Beckhams. While all three sons, Cruz, 12, Romeo, 14, and Brooklyn, 18, are veritable chips off the old block, the oldest Beckham boy is a dead ringer for his famous footballer father David, 42. From mirroring daddy’s sartorial style and his smouldering on-camera looks, the budding photographer is a David Beckham doppelganger through and through. (Photo: www.dailymail.co.uk)

#16 Lisa Bonet and Zoë Kravitz

The mother-and-daughter pair who look more like sisters rounds up our list. Since Lisa Bonet, 49, only is a mere 21 years older than daughter Zoë Kravitz, 28, this probably explains why they can be mistaken for twins. Not only do they have the same melting brown almond-shaped eyes, high cheekbones and petite frames, they both like wearing their hair in braids. (Photo: www.allaboutthetea.com)
