30 Celebrities Whose Kids Look Just Like Them
Having famous parents comes with plenty of fringe benefits, like going to red carpet premieres and being able to score tickets to Coachella. But looking like your mom’s younger sister (or your dad’s baby bro) is the ultimate perk for these celebrity kids.
Check out these 30 celebrity children that look exactly like their famous parents.
Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe
At the time, it seemed like Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe had one of those fairytale Hollywood marriages. The pair met on Reese’s 21st birthday in 1997 and were married a little more than two years later. They welcomed their first child, Ava Elizabeth, on Sept. 9, 1999. But now that she’s all grown up she looks like she could be Reese’s younger sister.
Demi Moore and Rumer Willis
With their dark locks and piercing eyes, Demi Moore and eldest daughter Rumer Glenn Willis are near mirror-images of each other. Born to Moore and then-husband Bruce Willis in 1988, Rumer is a successful actress in her own right, often stepping out with her mother on the red carpet.
Vanessa Paradis and Lily-Rose Depp
If French model Vanessa Paradis ever needed to call out sick from a photo shoot, she could send daughter Lily-Rose in her place. The pair share the same high cheekbones and smoldering eyes and could easily pass for sisters. But while Lily-Rose could easily have become a top supermodel, she’s taken up acting like her father, Johnny Depp.
Christie Brinkley and Sailor Brinkley-Cook
Christie Brinkley rose to fame in the 1970s when she graced the cover of the legendary Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue not once, not twice, but an unprecedented three years in a row. She parlayed that success into a high-profile modeling career that lasted decades. And now her daughter, Sailor Brinkley-Cook, could very well do the same.
David Beckham and Brooklyn Beckham
When your parents are “Posh and Becks,” as Victoria and David Beckham were dubbed by the British press early on in their relationship, it’s almost guaranteed you’ll either become a model or soccer player. Sorry, Brooklyn Joseph, those are the rules.
Heather Locklear and Ava Sambora
Melrose Place star Heather Locklear loves musicians. After divorcing Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in 1993, she married Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. The couple eventually separated in 2007 and shared joint custody of their only daughter Ava Elizabeth, who with the same blue-eyed, blonde-haired looks could pass for her mother’s sister.
Uma Thurman and Maya Hawke
The eldest daughter of Uma Thurman and ex-husband Ethan Hawke, Maya Hawke is a successful model and actress in her own right. She briefly attended Juilliard because, as she put it in a 2018 interview with W Magazine, “For me, acting has always felt like something you just do – the idea that anyone didn’t perform in plays was bizarre to me.”
Madonna and Lourdes Leon
Lourdes Leon isn’t one to seek the limelight, but when your mother is Madonna, you don’t really have to. Born in 1997 to Madonna and her then partner Carlos Leon, Lourdes grew up to be the mirror image of her famous mother and is forging her own path as a model.
Alan Thicke and Robin Thicke
Pop quiz: who do you think of when you hear the last name “Thicke”? If you’re a child of the ‘80s, it’s probably Alan, who played suburban patriarch Dr. Jason Weaver on the hit sitcom Growing Pains. If you’re Gen Z, it’s his son Robin who shot to fame with the catchy (and controversial) single Blurred Lines.
Kate Beckinsale and Lily Mo Sheen
Flowy brunette locks? Check. Runway-ready style? Check. Matching English accents? Check. Those are just some of the similarities between actress Kate Beckinsale and her twenty something daughter, Lily Mo, who is the latest in a long line of children who grew up looking like a younger version of their famous mother.
Bette Midler and Sophie Von Haselberg
For most her life, Sophie von Haselberg was adamant about being different than her mother, Oscar-nominated actress and singer Bette Midler. And despite going by her father’s last name (dad is performance artist Martin von Haselberg), and even moving to Shanghai, there was no escaping the fact that Sophie looked exactly like her world-famous mom.
Susan Sarandon and Eva Amurri
With their matching red tresses and statuesque style, Susan Sarandon and daughter Eva Amurri Martino look more like a pair of tight-knit siblings than mother and daughter. Eva spent her childhood visiting her famous mom on-set and tagging along to political rallies, so it makes sense that the two share a close bond that matches their shared looks.
Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow
Maybe it’s all the Transcendental Meditation (or maybe it’s just genetics), but actress Gwyneth Paltrow looks enough like her mother Blythe Danner to cause a double take. The pair, who have been photographed together often over the years, share the same serene beauty. (Hey, maybe they’re onto something with all that meditation).
Tom Hanks and Colin Hanks
Some celebrity kids use a different last name to avoid being associated with their famous parents while others stay out of the spotlight entirely. But even if Colin Hanks were to go by his stepmom Rita’s last name (Wilson), there’d be no avoiding the fact that the Life in Pieces star is a dead ringer for his dad, Tom Hanks.
Gordon Ramsay and Jack Ramsay
Given his frequent outbursts on the reality TV cooking series, Hell’s Kitchen, you’d be justified in thinking Gordon Ramsay must be pretty terrifying in real life. But Jack Ramsay, who shares his dad’s pug-nosed features and spiky blond hair, can attest to how big a softy his hot-tempered dad really is.
Liam Gallagher and Lennon Gallagher
It’s easy to see why Lennon Gallagher, son of former Oasis lead singer Liam Gallagher, is one of the UK fashion scene’s hottest up-and-coming male models. The artistic twenty something inherited his dad’s slouchy frame and rugged features, which makes for an irresistible combination of style and swagger on the runway.
Kim Zolciak and Brielle Biermann
When your mom is an OG Bravo Housewife, there’s no such thing as a “normal” life. Kim Zolciak was a breakout hit on the first season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and her daughter Brielle, who was 10 when the show began filming, essentially spent her childhood on-camera.
Robin Wright and Dylan Penn
It’s striking how much Dylan Penn looks like her mother, actress Robin Wright. The pair share the same slim profile that propelled Dylan to a modeling career that mirrors Robin’s own early days in front of the camera. And like her mom, Dylan has transitioned to working in film and TV.
Clint Eastwood and Scott Eastwood
It can’t be easy having Clint Eastwood as your dad. He’s an Oscar-winning actor and director and, for many, the very definition of masculinity. But for Scott Eastwood, who started out his career under the name Scott Reeves to avoid being accused of nepotism, looking like your dad in his heyday goes a long way.
Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson
From her early days on Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In to films like Overboard and Death Becomes Her, Goldie Hawn has long reigned as one of Hollywood’s funniest ladies. She’s passed on her golden comedic timing to daughter Kate Hudson, who could easily play her mother back in her ‘60s heyday.
Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner
Kris Jenner is approaching the age at which most U.S. citizens are eligible to collect Social Security benefits, but you’d never know that from looking at a picture of her and daughter, Kendall. Kendall is the second youngest of her six kids, but looks more like her baby sister.
Jerry Hall and Georgia May Jagger
Georgia May Jagger got her English accent and cool British style from her dad, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, but her statuesque features and innate poise are definitely all thanks to her mom, former model and actress Jerry Hall. So it’s no surprise that Georgia, who channels Jerry’s youthful beauty, is a model and fashion icon in her own right.
Candace Cameron Bure and Natasha Bure
Natasha Bure knows how much she looks like her mother, Fuller House star Candace Cameron Bure. Back in 2015, she posted a holiday-themed video where she and Candace wore matching antler ears and holiday sweaters that made it impossible to tell them apart. Imagine being able to do that with your mom!
Judi Dench and Finty Williams
The only daughter of stage and screen icon Dame Judi Dench, Finty Williams shares her mother’s love of acting and quietly powerful features (but not her signature silver hair, at least not yet). The pair are often photographed together at various theater performances and award ceremonies, which shows just how deep their mother-daughter bond goes.
Lisa Bonet and Zoë Kravitz
Maybe you first saw her as teenage mutant Angel Salvadore in X-Men: First Class or as one of the beautiful breeders Charlize Theron tries to liberate in Mad Max: Fury Road. But no matter where you first saw Zoë Kravitz, it’s almost certain the first thought that popped into your head was, “She looks exactly like her mother.”
Steven Tyler and Liv Tyler
Liv Tyler grew up thinking her dad was musician Todd Rundgren, but after meeting Steven Tyler when she was eight, Liv instantly knew the Aerosmith front man was her real father. And it’s not hard to see why; with her famous pout and model-worthy cheekbones, Liv looks just like Steven.
Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley
As the only daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, Lisa Marie Presley was the sole heir to her father’s famous Graceland estate and musical legacy. And while she may have inherited her father’s talent as a singer and songwriter, she also grew up to look just like her mother.
Tish Cyrus and Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus is her mom Tish Cyrus’ third child, but after seeing them together, you’d be forgiven for mistaking her for her mom’s younger sister instead. The Grammy-winning singer shares Tish’s sun-kissed smile and heart-shaped features, both of which helped make her a star on the Disney series Hannah Montana.
Will Smith and Jaden Smith
Sometimes, growing up with famous parents means leaning into it. But for Jaden Smith, looking like dad Will Smith’s doppelganger has pushed him to explore fame on his own terms. Along with a brief foray into Hollywood with roles in films like The Pursuit of Happyness and After Earth (both of which starred his dad), Jaden has branched out into music and fashion.
Diana Ross and Tracee Ellis Ross
When Tracee Ellis Ross steps out with her mother, legendary Motown singer and actress Diana Ross, the similarities between the two are striking. Tracee, the second oldest of Diana’s five children, plays up their shared features by coordinating her looks with her mother when they appear on the red carpet together, which is just about the cutest thing ever.
