You can never quite tell what your baby will look like. For example, it’s possible for 2 brown-eyed parents to have a blue-eyed baby, says a specialist. This means genetics are a game of chance and some people have hit the jackpot because of how alike they are to a family member, sometimes even one who lived a hundred years before their time.

Bright Side tracked down those who are the spitting image of their relatives and showcased their impressive photos here.
