When it comes to parenting, the subject of who the baby looks like is a sensitive one. In some cases, it is too obvious to argue about.

Children either look like their mom or their dad or are a perfect hybrid of both. Others even skip that generation and look like their grandparents. 

Others, however, are spitting images of one of the parents. 

Here is our list of celebrity parents that look like their children’s twins. 

Zoe Kravitz and Lisa Bonet 

Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet’s daughter Zoe Kravitz looks the young version of her mother. Their look-alike pictures have been widely shared so much that they even made it to the Calvin Klein 2016 campaign. Zoe refers to her mom as ‘twin’, and reckons she is cooler than everyone and that’s why she does not have an Instagram account.

Reese Witherspoon, Ava, and Deacon Phillipee

A musical artist, Deacon is a boy that chose to look like his mom; a true mama’s boy. Reese’s genes seem to be strong, considering that her daughter Ava is undeniably hers. Tennessee, Reese’s 8-year-old son seems to be the only child that gave his dad Tim Toth something to boast about.
