10+ Times Genes Proved to be Magical

To say that babies tend to look more like their fathers would be nothing more than repeating a myth. Genes work in mysterious ways, and how a newborn baby will look can’t be predicted. However, in some rare cases, babies resemble their parent/grandparent so much that they look like carbon copies.

1. “My grandma holding my dad vs. me holding my son, taken exactly 63 years apart.”

2. “After 10+ years of searching, I finally found my dad’s biological mother. Below is a picture of my biological grandmother and me.”

3. “Me vs. my daughter”

4. “I met my birth mother.”

5. “My father and me!”

6. Strong dad genes (our dads vs. my cousin + me)

7. “Paternal grandfather and myself”

8. “3-year-old me with my little brother, vs. my mom at 3 years old with her sister.”

9. “My grandfather vs me after no shave November”

10. “I look a lot like my biological paternal grandmother.”

11. “My grandfather and me... 67 years apart”

12. “My dad in seventh grade vs. me in seventh grade”

Bonus: strong genes in celeb families
