Genetics are weird and freaky. (Also v. v. cool.) Sometimes children are born who look so much like their parents there's absolutely no way to deny their shared DNA. When celebrities pop out these little doppelgangers, the world looks on in awe.
Take Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise, for instance. Their resemblance is so close it lends credence to the rumors that Tom Cruise isn't Suri's biological father. And Violet Affleck? She is Jennifer Garner's mini-me.
Need more proof the Apple doesn't fall far from the Gwyneth Paltrow? Take a look at 23 celebrity children who look JUST like their famous parents. It's absolutely fascinating to see.
Mamie and Grace Gummer and Meryl Streep
Meryl Streep produced not one, but TWO doppelgangers. Daughters Mamie and Grace Gummer aren't twins, but upon first glance, that's almost impossible to distinguish. Fun fact: BOTH daughters have played their real mothers fictional mother on the big screen, and Mamie once played a younger version of Meryl.
Kaia Gerber and Cindy Crawford
Kaia Gerber doesn't have her mom Cindy Crawford's height--YET--but she's definitely got her mother's supermodel's good looks. And that hair! We'll be looking for her on the runway soon.
Prince George and Prince William
Two things: Prince George and Prince William are ADORABLE. Also THE SAME BABY. Now here's hoping Prince George is able to hang on to his hair as he ages. (Sorry, Wills. We still love you.)
Ava Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon
Ava Phillippe looks so much like mom Reese Witherspoon, and Reese Witherspoon looks so young, that these two could easily be mistaken for sisters instead of mother-daughter. Except Ava Phillippe hasn't been arrested for DUI. Yet. And hopefully never.
John (Shiloh) Jolie-Pitt and Angelina Jolie
John (as Shiloh now wishes to be called) Jolie-Pitt looks so much like his mother Angelina Jolie she might have spawned him without any help at all from her hot husband Brad Pitt.
Lourdes Leon and Madonna
Lourdes is definitely taking after her material girl mother Madonna! Dye her hair blonde and you've got a dead ringer for the one-time Queen of Pop.
