Some celebrity kids follow in their parents' footsteps. Some do whatever they can to avoid the spotlight. But when it comes to Elizabeth Hurley's son Damian Hurley, who she shared with late businessman Steve Bing, he's taking after his mom in every way. At 18 years old, Damian is a professional model and has done a little acting work alongside his mother, too. One time, Damian even channeled Elizabeth's iconic Versace safety pin look. If you take a look at their social media, it's clear that the pair is close—and it's also clear that they look very similar. Sometimes Damian even calls Elizabeth his "twin"—and commenters seem to agree.
