Even hours after a baby is born, people are already trying to figure out which parent he or she looks more like. Maybe she has her mother’s nose, and her father’s eyes. Or maybe he is the spitting image of his dad, without a trace of his mother anywhere to be seen.
Celebrity babies are no exception to this rule. But it’s a given that a lot of celebrity kids have good genes. Their parents are famous, and probably at least one half of their gene pool has a few appealing physical attributes. While we know looks aren’t everything, when it comes to celebrity kids, there isn’t much to talk about besides how cute they are. At least until they grow up and try their hand at a music or acting career.
Here are a few celebrity kids who look like almost an exact replica, except smaller, of their superstar parents.
Violet Affleck – daughter of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck
Violet is the eldest daughter of everyone’s favourite celebrity couple, Jennifer Garner, and Ben Affleck. Her long hair, dark eyes, and cute dimples make her the spitting image of her mom. She has a younger sister, Seraphina, and a brother Samuel, who both have the same blond hair and infectious smiles. Despite recent rumors of Ben’s gambling problems, the Garner-Affleck family never seems anything but happy in photos.
Ava Phillippe – daughter of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe
It doesn’t get much more identical than Reese Witherspoon and her daughter, Ava. The long blond hair, blue eyes, and even the shape of her face is very similar to her mother. Her parents were in their early 20’s when she was born, and divorced when she was 8, but her relationship with both parents has remained stable. Philippe has stated to the media, that while he wouldn’t prevent his kids from entering the entertainment business, he hopes they might want to do something a else.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt – daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
So far, all of the biological Jolie-Pitt kids are as blond as blond can get, but that could change as they get older. They are also blessed with the full lips of their mother. But eldest daughter, Shiloh has been leaning towards a more tomboy look lately, with her short hair, and boy’s clothes. She looks just like her father, Brad Pitt, but you can also see a bit of her mom in there. Not a bad combination.
Suri Cruise – daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise
The one and only child of the eccentric Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise union has always been a media magnet. Born with a mop of dark hair, and blue eyes, she has only grown up to look more and more like her mother every day. She also has the fashion sense, and expensive taste of her celebrity parents, and is often dressed in designer clothes. She has even worn tiny child high heels. Since her parents got divorced, Suri has lived with her mom, and Cruise admitted that Holmes left him in part to “protect their daughter from Scientology”.
Liv Freundlich – daughter of Julianne Moore
12-year-old Liv definitely got her long red hair, green eyes, and porcelain complexion from her mother, Julianne Moore, but she also slightly resembles her dad, Bart Freundlich. Moore is known for her red locks, and her dramatic portrayals of emotional female characters. She has been in 57 films, and several TV shows, including soap opera, As the World Turns, where she got her break. Liv has an older brother named Caleb who looks more like their dad.
Kaia Gerber – daughter of Cindy Crawford
With a supermodel for a mother, beauty is bound to run in the family. Cindy Crawford‘s 13-year-old daughter, Kaia, has the same thick dark hair, big brown eyes, and bone structure as her famous mom. Kaia has already started modeling, her biggest campaign being for Young Versace when she was 10. Crawford said 10 was too young to really be pursuing a modeling career yet, but if Kaia showed an interest in that path when she was older, she would support her.
Matilda Ledger – daughter of Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams
When Heath Ledger passed away from an accidental drug overdose, his daughter with ex-girlfriend, Michelle Williams was only 3 years old. It has been 6 years since then, and now at 9, Matilda is growing to resemble her father more and more. Williams told People magazine after Ledger’s death, “I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father. All that I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day.”
Jaden and Willow Smith – children of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith
The former Fresh Prince of Belair has two kids with his current wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Jaden and Willow not only look exactly like him, but they have both taken after him when it comes to their ambitions in the entertainment business. Jaden has acted in huge films, including alongside his father in The Pursuit of Happyness, and After Earth, and Willow, even though she is only 13, has already started to pursue a career in the music business.
Sadie Sandler – daughter of Adam Sandler
SNL alum, and king of the Razzies, Adam Sandler has two daughters, but his eldest, Sadie, is the one that really looks like him. Her dark curly hair, and oval face, and even her facial expressions are a dead ringer for her dad. The 8-year-old has made a couple appearances in her fathers films as an extra, and she is always on set when he is working. Both Sadie and his younger daughter, Sunny, are close with their father, and were there to support him when he got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
