These famous offspring are basically carbon copies of their parents—looks-wise, anyway.

There's family resemblance to be expected between children and their parents. But genetics can be a funny thing. Sometimes, kids end up looking like the perfect blend of their creators; and sometimes, they wind up being the spitting image of one of their parents entirely. The same goes with with high-profile stars and their offspring, which means that there are a lot of celebrity kids who look just like one of their parents and know what it's like to grow up with an already-famous face.

Read on for 25 celebs with kids who are basically their twin. Wonder what it's like for these stars to have a younger version of themselves hanging around…

And for star spawn who are basically adults already, here are 15 Celebrity Kids Who Are All Grown Up Now.

Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe

Reese Witherspoon started her career at such a young age, looking at her 21-year-old daughter Ava Phillippe is like going back in time. (The resemblance is especially striking when they pose for selfies together.) Phillippe, whose father is Witherspoon's ex, Ryan Phillippe, has inherited her mom's eyes, smile, and just about everything else.

During Robin Wright and Sean Penn's 20-year relationship, they welcomed a daughter, Dylan Penn, who is now 29 years old and has followed in her parents' footsteps with a modeling and acting career of her own. She also happens to look exactly like Wright, from their blonde locks to the shape of their noses.

David Beckham and Brooklyn Beckham

As much as we can see mom Victoria Beckham in 21-year-old Brooklyn Beckham, he's a near-perfect younger version of dad David Beckham. Nearly anytime Brooklyn poses with his dad on Instagram, the comments are flooded with messages about how unbelievable it is that they look so much alike—their fans just haven't gotten over it.

Miss Luna Stephens is only four years old, but she already takes the idea of a mini-me to a new level when she takes pics with her mom, Chrissy Teigen (especially when they wear matching outfits). The older Luna gets, the more she looks like Teigen—and we already know she loves the camera, so there may be a modeling career in her future too.

5
John Legend and Miles Stephens

While we're talking about John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's family, we may as well address the fact that while their daughter is mom's copy, somehow, their son ended up looking identical to his dad! From his facial features to his mannerisms, Miles Stephens is all Legend.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Apple Martin

It's hard to believe that Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter, Apple Martin—whose father is Coldplay frontman Chris Martin—is already 16 years old, but she's quickly becoming her mom's twin. In summer 2020, Paltrow shared a photo with her daughter on Instagram that had fans seeing double.

7
Ice Cube & O'Shea Jackson Jr.

O'Shea Jackson Jr. (29) isn't just named after his father, Ice Cube. He's also an actor and rapper and takes after him in other ways. In fact, they look so alike that Ice Cube's son actually played a young him in the movie Straight Outta Compton.

When Maya Hawke had her breakthrough moment in Stranger Things, fans immediately took notice. And once you learn that her parents are Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, it became impossible not to see the family resemblance, especially to her mom. Those eyes and that smile? Definitely twinning.

9
Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise

It's been more than 14 years since Katie Holmes and ex-husband Tom Cruise welcomed their daughter, Suri Cruise, into the world, and sightings of her in public are few and far between. But during the times we've seen Suri out and about with her mom or when she has appeared on Instagram, it's hard to deny that she still looks exactly like Holmes.

Scott Disick and Mason Disick

The Kardashian genes are strong, but they may have found a worthy opponent in Scott Disick's. His first child with ex Kourtney Kardashian, 10-year-old Mason Disick, looks just like his dad. And from what we've seen of him on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, it certainly seems like Mason has inherited the elder Disick's sense of humor, too.

11
Diana Ross and Tracee Ellis Ross

Tracee Ellis Ross (with brother Evan Ross and her mom above) is already a legend herself, but she comes from a pretty epic family as the daughter of singer Diana Ross and music exec Robert Ellis Silberstein. These days, Tracee is looking more and more like Diana—and who wouldn't want to take after such a glamorous mom?

12
Colin Hanks and Tom Hanks

Growing up with a dad like Tom Hanks had to be pretty cool, but Colin Hanks has made a name for himself as an actor and filmmaker, too—and not only did he happen to inherit his dad's talent, but he also inherited his leading man looks.

13
Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson

If Goldie Hawn ever needs someone to play a younger version of herself in a movie, she knows who to call! Daughter Kate Hudson has (obviously) gone on to have a pretty epic career of her own, and she also has a two-year-old daughter, Rani Rose, who may end up carrying on those big screen-worthy genes.

14
Dan Levy and Eugene Levy

Fans of their show Schitt's Creek are used to seeing double whenever stars Dan Levy and Eugene Levy are sharing a scene. The strong eyebrows, the smirk, even some of the poses they both strike—we're guessing that Dan will look even more like Eugene once he reaches his age. Considering all they've already accomplished together (including sweep of the comedy categories at this year's Emmys!), who knows what the future holds for this father-and-son team?

15
Michael Consuelos and Mark Consuelos

Mark Consuelos's son, Michael Consuelos, is now 23, and the resemblance between him and his dad is so strong that Michael actually played a teen version of Mark's character on Riverdale, Hiram Lodge, in the third season of the show. And since Michael's mom is Kelly Ripa, well, it goes without saying that he won the genetic lottery.

16
Carrie Fisher and Billie Lourd

We will never get over life without Carrie Fisher, but fortunately, she lives on in her 28-year-old daughter, Billie Lourd. Just as Fisher looked so much like her mom, Debbie Reynolds, Lourd is carrying both of their legacies. Not only did Lourd have her own new character in the latest Star Wars trilogy, she even stood in for the late Fisher in one Rise of Skywalker scene.

17
Kim Kardashian and North West

Remember those strong Kardashian genes we were talking about? Well, here they are, on full display in Kim Kardashian and her oldest daughter, North West, who is now seven years old. West, who's already showing off her big personality, is a huge fan of the camera and of fashion, just like her mom.

18
Steven Tyler and Liv Tyler

It wasn't until Liv Tyler was 11 years old that she discovered her father is Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, but looking at the two of them together, it's clear they're related. Their facial structure, their dark hair, their smiles—the two stars are total lookalikes.

19
DJ Khaled and Asahd Khaled

At just four years old, Asahd Khaled is already living a life of far more luxury than most of us could even dream of, thanks to his dad, DJ Khaled… and he even looks like a toddler version of his famous father. The paid memorably donned matching outfits on the cover of DJ Khaled's album, Father of Asahd, and we're guessing we'll be seeing a lot more coordinated moments in the future, too.

20
Jay-Z and Blue Ivy

Blue Ivy takes after mom Beyoncé, too, but she definitely favors dad Jay-Z more. Seeing as the eight-year-old is already a BET Award winner, she's clearly inherited the musical gifts of both of her superstar parents.

21
Hilary Duff and Banks Koma

Hilary Duff and her oldest son, Luca Comrie, definitely look alike, but there's no denying the twinning that's happening between the Younger star and her two-year-old daughter with husband Matthew Koma, Banks. This little one could easily be a mini-Lizzie McGuire, especially with all that blonde hair going on.

22
Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson

Dakota Johnson has built an impressive career for herself, thanks to the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise (and her meme-able moment on The Ellen Show). Just like her talent, she's also inherited her face from famous mom Melanie Griffith. Are these two twins or what?

23
Nicole Richie and Harlow Madden

Lisa Bonet and ex Lenny Kravitz's daughter, Zoë Kravitz, has recently starred in the shows Big Little Lies and High Fidelity. And if you grew up watching her mom on The Cosby Show and A Different World, you were probably taken way back. This stunning mother and daughter might as well be sisters.

25
Julianne Moore and Liv Freundlich

Julianne Moore's daughter with husband Bart Freundlich, 18-year-old Liv Freundlich, looks just like her—especially with her red hair. Her son Cal has it too, but Liv is the absolute dead-ringer for her Oscar-winning mom.
