See Christy Turlington's 17-Year-Old Lookalike Daughter

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree in this famous family.

If you were alive in the '90s, Christy Turlington needs absolutely no introduction. Known as one of the original "Big Five" supermodels, alongside industry icons Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, and Tatjana Patitz, the famed Calvin Klein model transcended runways and magazine covers to become one of the biggest household names in fashion.

Now 52, Turlington is married to actor and director Edward Burns, with whom she shares two teenage children. These days, it's 17-year-old Grace Burns who's making headlines as a budding social media star. Blessed with her supermodel mom's good looks, it's no surprise that the legend's lookalike daughter is stepping into the spotlight.

In fact, her supermodel mom has made more than one guest appearance, surprising fans by rapping along to a Nicki Minaj track, lip synching famous lines from Grey's Anatomy, and performing dance routines with her daughter.

On TikTok, Grace has recently enjoyed showing off her fashion sense, even donning some of her mother's iconic looks in one popular video clip. She clearly inherited her mom's natural aptitude for modeling—and she has Turlington's full support, which the model frequently voices in comments on her daughter's posts. "When you get can't decide which pic is cuter. I love the last one," said the proud mom wrote under one snap.

They also share a passion for social justice.

When Turlington gave birth to Grace in 2003, she famously suffered complications that she says could have been life-threatening without the excellent care she was provided. To make sure every mother has access to those same lifesaving resources, she founded Every Mother Counts, a medical justice and maternal care nonprofit.

In an interview with InStyle, the supermodel shared that Grace has now joined her in supporting the cause. The 17-year-old has also promoted racial justice organizations on her Instagram account—something her mother does with frequency on her own social media. "When you don't tell your kids what to do, when you don't say, 'You should do this, and you should be thankful for this,' they get it themselves," Turlington told the magazine.

For now, she's busy being a kid.

Yes, she may have her parents' good looks and an ease in front of the camera that evokes her mother's legendary ad campaigns, but Grace is still just 17 and in no rush for a career. When questioned about the possibility of her daughter modeling professionally, Turlington reportedly said, "There is no job that cannot wait for a girl to become a woman." For now, we'll happily settle for more mom-and-daughter TikTok content, please and thank you.
