"I have been blessed to have a wondrous mama and I give thanks for that every day," Hurley gushed.

Few people in this world have supermodel good looks—but it seems that practically everyone in the Hurley family could grace the cover of a magazine. In a new Instagram post for U.K. Mother's Day, model and actor Elizabeth Hurley shared a photo of herself and her 80-year-old mother, Angela Hurley, and they look exactly alike. Read on to see just how striking the resemblance between Hurley and her mother really is—and find out which other member of the family could be the model's twin.

From their gleaming smiles to their striking blue-gray eyes, Hurley and her 80-year-old mother share more than a few physical similarities in this undated photo posted to Hurley's Instagram on March 14.

However, it was her mother's guidance throughout her life that Hurley was lauding her for most. "Happy Mothers Day to every mother in the world. I have been blessed to have a wondrous mama and I give thanks for that every day. I've been a mother myself for 18 glorious years and my mother has guided me through every stage of parenthood. All hail our mighty mothers," Hurley captioned the photo of herself and her mom. And for the latest celebrity news delivered straight to your inbox, sign up for our daily newsletter.

After Hurley posted a set of photos of herself wearing only a white bikini bottom and open-front sweater to Instagram in January, former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan suggested that the pictures had been snapped by Hurley's 18-year-old son, Damian Hurley, calling her "thirsty and creepy." However, Hurley was quick to point out that it was actually her mother who'd been behind the lens. "Far be it for me to suggest the tabloids get their facts muddled, but these pics were in fact taken by my 80 year old mother. Not entirely sure if that puts minds at rest or not," Hurley tweeted.
