Sometimes when you look at someone and then you look at their mom or dad or both, it’s hard to determine which one they look like. But in some cases, kids turn out to be spitting images of their parents. For these 14 celebs, that is definitely the case, because the older they get, the harder it is to tell them apart. We can definitely say no paternity test is needed!

Beyonce & Tina Knowles

Though her mom has clearly aged, Beyonce and Tina Knowles really look a lot alike. Aside from the similar hairstyles and outfits that the two wear, Beyonce and her mom have a very similar facial structure. The high cheek bones and picture perfect smiles make these these two women look a lot alike and if you took a quick glance, it’s hard to tell them apart.

Trey Songz & April Tucker

Not a lot of men want to admit looking like their mom, but when you look at Trey Songz and his mom April Tucker, it’s obvious where he got his looks from. Crazily, Trey’s mom is 43, but she definitely doesn’t look a day over 35. Hopefully Trey gets those good genes.

Jada Pinkett-Smith & Adrienne Banfield-Jones

Jada Pinkett-Smith and her mom look like mirror images. Not only are both women small with a bright and sparkly smile, they are both fit and in shape, despite  having children and aging! Jada’s mom could easily pass as being her sister, her skin is simply flawless!

Jayden Smith & Will Smith

Sticking with the Smith family, Jayden Smith favors his famous dad, Will Smith. Even in his younger years when he had braids, Jayden seemed to favor his dad more than his mom. The two have the same facial shape, nose, and clearly they both have paths of Hollywood success in their future.

Rihanna & Ronald Fenty

Rihanna is a true spitting image of her dad, Ronald Fenty. Though there aren’t a lot of pictures of the two together, when you see them, it’s hard to miss the similarities. From the nose to their cheek bones, Rihanna and Ronald clearly share a lot of the same facial characteristics. Ri Ri’s dad seems to be her biggest fan. In fact, he supports her decision to start dating Chris Brown again. That’s unconditional love.

Bobbi Kristina & Bobby Brown

Bobbi Kristina has spoken numerous times about the fact that she doesn’t want to have a relationship with her dad, Bobby Brown. Relationship or not, Bobbi Kristina definitely has the looks of her dad, though she does have some physical characteristics of her mom as well. The two clearly share the same nose, lips, and facial shape.


Al B. Sure & Quincy

Quincy Brown has most definitely become his father’s twin. The singer and songwriter has three children total, but Quincy definitely looks the most like him. Though the two have sometimes had a stressed relationship, there’s no denying the physical similarities between these two.

Damon Wayans & Damon Wayans Jr.

When a dad names his son after him, it’s usually just a tradition thing. However, in the case of Damon Wayans and his son, it’s obvious that Damon Wayans Jr. is the true younger version of his father. The father son pair look a lot alike and they even share a lot of the same career passions. Damon Wayans Jr. has appeared on several shows, including Happy Endings and even toured as a stand-up comedian. Clearly humor and looks run in the family.


Zoe Kravitz & Lenny Kravitz

Zoe Kravitz definitely got the best of both worlds when it comes to the looks she inherited from her mom and her dad. However, we have to say that she definitely favors Lenny when it comes to her facial structure. From her lips, nose, and facial shape, these two are clearly related. But, having them side-by-side, it’s obvious that Zoe looks a lot like Lenny.


Monica & Mom

Monica and her mom are both beautiful women, and even though her mom is in her 60’s, the two still look a lot alike. They’ve both aged flawlessly and they share a lot of the same physical features. Their similar eyes, heights, noses, and bright smiles definitely prove just how much Monica looks like her mother.

LeBron James & Gloria Marie James

Same smile, check. Same nose, check. Same eyes, check. The only huge difference between LeBron James and his mom Gloria Marie James is their height! Gloria clearly passed on a lot of her looks to LeBron, though he clearly took on his height from his dad. The mom and son pair definitely look a lot alike.

Nicki Minaj & Carol Maraj

It’s not often you see Nicki Minaj posing with others, but when she’s around her mom, the striking similarities between them is hard to miss. They both have the same dimples and the same smile, and naturally, they look a lot alike. Looks like Nicki has some height on her mom though!

Kim Kardashian& Kris Jenner

Love them or hate them, Kim Kardashian and her mom look a lot alike. Out of Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney, Kim definitely looks the most like Kris. They have the same nose and lips..which some may contribute thanks to the same plastic surgeon. In any case, Kim does resemble her mom a lot.


Tracee Ellis Ross & Diana Ross

Though her mom is from the Motown era, Tracee Ellis Ross has definitely inherited some of her looks, spunk, and passion. Both Tracee and Diana have some amazing hair, amazing skin, and a youthfulness to them that has stayed throughout the years. While Tracee is an actress and her mom is a well-known singer, the two share plenty between them.

    Usher and his Mom should have been on the list

  • Melly

    Rihanna’s dad also looks like he too took a beating from Chris Brown.

  • queenbee9

    OK–just keeping it real: Diana Ross only has “amazing hair ” when she is wearing weave or a wig. Her hair has for the most part been barely shoulder length and very, very thin–but she does have amazing eyes and beautiful skin, no doubt.

  • onesolo

    Twinkies???? The word is Twinsies! I opened up this article expecting to read about celebrity creamed filled cakes that look alike. LMBO….I’m just kidding….but seriously MN, please do a spell check and grammar check before you post articles because these mistakes are getting outrageous and very unprofessional.

    • MLS2698

      Ha ha! that’s what I was wondering. Plus they cancelled Twinkies too. I thought I could find out where to get some. So soft, creamy, sweet…..gotta go find a substitute!

      • MImi

        LOL…since they changed the Twinkies to Twinsies now…I’m sure people who read this article now are going to be wondering what the heck is she talking about?. LOL.

  • Erin Corrine

    Y’all should have put Will and Willow instead of Will and Jayden. That little girl have the same big ears as her daddy.

  • Er Uhhh

    • TheMsmother

      That’s what I’m saying! LOL!

  • Ms. Bee

    And I always thought Zoe Kravitz looked just like her mom Lisa Bonet. But Lenny? if you say so, Madame Noire.

    • DLBOYD

      Zoe does resemble her mom more than her dad.

    • She looks exactly like her name should’ve been Denise Huxtable! IDENTICAL to Lisa when she was doing the show!!

  • Ms. Bee

    Madame Noire sat here and posted about the similarities between Bobbi Kristina and Bobby Brown, without mentioning the identical gap. I choked. Good job.

    • Chey

      lmao ok?! I was waiting for it!

    • TheMsmother

      They were trying to be nice, unlike some people, LOL! I’m just as bad.

    • Melly


  • Janee

    Beautiful! Black don’t crack! (of course that’s why Kim and her mother aren’t included…plastic surgery smh…)

  • CoCo Lee

    Kris Jenner is identical 2 her mother as well

  • sammi_lu

    If Jada and her mother are considered “tall” then I must be Andre the Giant-esque at my staggering 5 foot 6in. (extreme

    • Yvette

      Where does it say they are “tall”? It says they are both “small” with bright smiles, fit and in shape.

      • sammi_lu

        Looks like it has since been edited/corrected to say “small”.
