They say that children whose parents work in film or television are 12 times more likely to follow the same path. This is only natural since a kid takes their parents as an example and might even start to idolize them and their profession. In the list we have curated for you, many of the celebrity children have chosen the same professional path as their parents, while looking seriously similar to them.

1. Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe

Ava Philippe bears a striking resemblance to her mother, actress Reese Witherspoon, to the extent that one could easily mistake her for Reese’s twin sister. With the same blonde hair and facial features, the 22-year-old has also made appearances in some TV shows.

Lily-Rose, who is 23 years old, has inherited all of her best facial features from her famous parents, Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp. She boasts large eyes, a slender nose, defined cheekbones, and a svelte figure, which have enabled her to excel in both the modeling and film industries.
