25 Celebrities Whose Kids Look Exactly Like Them

They really are the spitting image...

Celebrity Kid Look-Alikes

by Bonnie McLaren |

From the moment we're born, we are compared to our parents. Grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins crowd around our baby basket to offer the same comments: things like 'she's got her dad's nose', or 'she looks like her mum when she does that with her face.' But sometimes, these well-wishers are really onto something. Some people really do follow firmly in the genetic footsteps of one of their parents, rather than looking like a mixed version of both.

Case in point? Reese Witherspoon and her daughter Ava Phillipe. This week, the Legally Blonde star posted the latest picture of her with her young daughter, and it was like looking at twins.

They're not the only ones. Take a look at these celebrity parents and their lookalike children.
