Copy-Paste: 6 Celebrity Moms and Their Kids

By  | 

Celebrity moms are always spotted out and about town with their kids and while most celebuspawns will inherit a mixture of features from both parents, a lot of these kids look so much like their mothers it freaks us out. – Just kidding, we actually find it quite cute.

It doesn’t help that celebrities are so fond of dressing their young ones as mini version of themselves. Seeing some of these celebrity children gives us a huge case of #throwbackthursdays, making us think it’s the 1980’s again and a cone bra clad Madonna is about to bust a move somewhere.

Reese Witherspoon and Daughter Ava Philippe 

Ava Philippe is one lucky kid. With parents like Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Philippe she was probably born looking like a movie star. Now that she’s all grown up though, she looks more like her beautiful mom. Reese Witherspoon posted a picture of the mother and daughter duo on Instagram, looking fresh and pretty for the Hot Pursuit premiere. Both mother and daughter have luscious blonde hair and sparkling blue eyes.

Just in case Ava’s 90’s cutie of a dad feels left out of their perfect little gene pool, the pretty teen inherited her father’s signature sly smirk.

Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise

Suri Cruise is basically a mini-me of her mother. Dark brown hair, deep set doe-eyed brown eyes and a square face-shape, the mother and daughter look exactly alike. Hardly ever spotted without her precious little Suri, Katie Holmes has rubbed off some of her signature style on her fashionable daughter. This mother-daughter duo is so alike that they are sometimes photographed doing identical gestures.

Looking and dressing the way her mother does, Suri must look up to her actress mother and think “Wow, this must be what the future looks like!”

Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber


Kaia Gerber, daughter of Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford, bears a striking resemblance to her supermodel mom thanks to her high cheek-bones, shapely pout and luscious hair. Let’s face it, one of the things we remember about THE Cindy Crawford, apart from her beauty mark, is her wealth of long healthy waves. Her daughter, born in 2001, seems to have inherited not only her mother’s enchanting looks but also her love for the camera. On Tuesday, June 2nd, Cindy Crawford posted a picture of her daughter emulating Miranda Kerr on Instagram.

Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson

Dakota Johnson, daughter of Melanie Griffith and her first husband Don Johnson, reminds us of a young Melanie Griffith circa 1980’s. Albeit having a softer version of her mother’s face, Dakota Johnson inherited her mother’s tiny perfectly shaped lips (a feature Griffith would eventually ruin with plastic surgery) and strong chin. She also inherited her mom’s slim figure – lucky!

Although proud of her daughter for bagging the leading female role for Fifty Shades of Grey, Griffith will not be sitting front row as per her daughter’s request. Watching yourself make fake love to a man on screen with your mother sitting beside you at the cinema is something no one should ever have to endure. Good call on that one Dakota.

Julianne Moore and Daughter Liv

Looking at Julianne Moore’s 12 year old daughter Liv feels like looking at what Julianne Moore must have looked like as a child. Just like her famous mother, Liv has milky white skin, fiery red hair, pointy ears and a cluster of cute freckles on her face. Mother and daughter look even more alike when they smile.

Last year, the pair appeared on a Vogue editorial shot by famous photographer Annie Leibowitz. The spread that featured Julian Moore, her daughter and other notable redheads in the biz was titled “The Best Redheads”. Also on the list was Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine.

Madonna and Lourdes Leon

Lourdes Leon, Madonna’s daughter with Carlos Leon, is the splitting image of her mother! You wouldn’t know it from most of their pictures together, but Lourdes Leon was spotted sporting lighter gray hair and she looks a lot like her mother did in the 1980’s. The similarities are hard to spot at first because Lourdes wears her hair in its natural dark color while Madonna has been dying hers blonde for several years now. But believe me, the similarities are there. Even the slight unruliness at where their eyebrows begin is the same.

Lourdes not only inherited her looks from her mother, she inherited Madonna’s drive and business shrewdness as well. Lourdes oversees Material Girl, a clothing line she co-owns with her mother.
