17 People Who Look Like Copies of Their Family Members

Family & kids

Growing up, we were told that we have our mom’s eyes and our dad’s nose (or vice versa). In some families, special birthmarks, unusually shaped fingers, or eye color can get passed down from one generation to the next. There are also some cases when the entire appearance, from the face and hair to everything else, look strikingly similar.

After looking at these photos from family albums, we at Bright Side are once again convinced that genes don’t lie.

At the end of the article, you’ll find a bonus feature about the British royal family.

1. “Everyone kept telling me I looked like my dad. I never really understood that until now.”

2. “My dad and me, and then my daughter and me 23 years later”

3. “36 years later, my daughter has the exact same curls as me.”

4. “My grandma in the 1940s and me in 2014”

5. “Me at 3 vs my daughter at 3”

6. “On the left is my husband in 1992 on his parents’ truck. On the right is our son and our truck.”

7. “This is my father at the age of 33 and me at 38.”

8. “Took my son to get his first haircut. Same age, similar outfit, and the SAME chair (just updated)!”

9. “My mother and me at age 25”

10. “My daughter and me at age 2”

11. “Me in 1987 vs my son in 2017”

12. “Here’s a picture of my mom and me around the same age.”

13. “This is a picture of my mother who died of cancer and me around the same age. The photos ended up similar by coincidence!”

14. “My dad and me at 30 — a slight resemblance”

15. “My mom and me at the same age”

16. “My husband always said he looked more like his dad when he was young and not his mom. I finally got to prove him wrong.”

17. “My mom and I at the same age in different centuries”

Bonus: Mary of Teck and her granddaughter — Queen Elizabeth II"

Everyone keeps telling me I look like my mother, but as for me, I don't have anything similar with her, so weird


When I was around 6 I found a picture of my half sister who is 13 years older than me. In the picture she was about 8, and was with our cousin. I ran to my mom with the photo and said "Mommy, I don't remember you taking this picture of me with Cousin Emily. And why does Emily look like she's 4. She was 9 or 10 when I was born, right?" Then my mom told me it was my sister. The resemblance was uncanny. We looked exactly the same, except her hair was a little bit lighter, and her eyes where a little more like light green/hazel than blue.


When I was at my grandma's house and was about 11, my mom found a picture of my grandma and great aunt, when they were 9 and 7. My grandma looked a lot like me, except she was wearing 50's clothing and had her hair in a weird poofy perm-like thing. My great aunt looked almost exactly like the pictures I had seen of my mom when she was a kid, except her hair was more like a dirty blond instead of light brown. So weird.
