The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From The Tree: Children Looking Almost The Same As Their Parents And Grandparents

Did you inherit your grandmother’s tiny ears or swooped nose? Maybe you have the same curly hair or eye color as your grandfather. There’s even a chance you look exactly like your aunt, uncle, cousin, or a long, lost relative. Thanks to the magical science of genes, people who are related to each other can share the same characteristics when it comes to their appearance, even if they come from different generations. This, of course, goes for both regular relatives and famous families.

Sure, it’s no surprise that children often resemble their parents. We’ve all heard that old phrase, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” But what happens when your kid could literally be your twin?

Well, thanks to a new trend kickstarted by HuffPost Parents, you can see all kinds of lookalike parent-child pairs. From their happy expressions to their distinct features, some are so spot on.

Below are a few our favorites. Maybe you’ll get inspired to submit your own.
