Like mother, like daughter! These celebrity mums have beauty and talent in spades, and they well and truly passed those on to their daughters.

Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillipe

Any celeb fanatic will know that Reese and her eldest child and only daughter could be twins.

The Legally Blonde star welcomed her daughter with ex-husband Ryan Phillipe in September 2019 and with their blonde locks and stunning smiles, it’s astounding how similar they look.

To make things even cuter, Reese and Ava are inseparable with Ava calling her mum her “first best friend” in a sweet Mother’s Day tribute.

“Thank you for your everyday commitment to raising and loving us to the best of your ability. I am so lucky to learn from and be loved by you,” she penned in 2021.

Heidi Klum and Leni Olumi Klum

Not only does 17-year-old Leni look like her supermodel mum, but she’s also following her footsteps when it comes to her career.

In August 2021, Leni, whose father is F1 boss Flavio Briatore, walked in the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda fashion show and her mum had a front seat.

“She’s not afraid of cameras because she’s always come to my sets and my shows. She’s quite strong in the sense where she plays with it!” Heidi told WHO‘s sister publication, PEOPLE.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Apple Martin

When Oscar winner Gwyneth welcomed her daughter Apple with ex-husband Chris Martin, everyone was obsessed with her unusual name.

But as Apple’s grown into a young woman, she’s blossomed (pun intended) into her mum’s mini me!

“Apple borrows from my closet. Although I did take a hoodie from her about two weeks ago. So, fair enough. But she likes my t-shirts and my shoes. She likes my shoes,” Gwyneth confessed on PEOPLE (The TV Show!).

Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber

Like Heidi and Leni, there’s another iconic 90s supermodel with a daughter who’s making waves in the fashion industry on our list.

However Cindy definitely didn’t push Kaia, whom she shares with husband Rande Gerber, into the modelling world and Kaia admitted that she didn’t want to start until she felt self-confident enough.

“Modelling has given my mum and me something new to bond over. I didn’t really know what questions to ask her until I found myself immersed in this world that she knows so much about,” Kaia wrote in Vogue in 2019.

Speaking at Vogue’s 2019 Forces of Fashion conference, Cindy also remarked: “At an age where often your 18-year-old daughter doesn’t necessarily want to listen to anything you have to say, this has been something that’s brought us closer.”

Snezana Wood and Eve Markoski

When it comes to her kids, Bachelor season three winner Snezana has passed on some stunning genes.

Whilst her two youngest daughters Willow and Charlie are the spitting image of herself and dad Sam Wood, Snez’s 16-year-old Eve is her carbon copy.

Could we be seeing her on The Bachelor/The Bachelorette in a few years’ time?

Bec Hewitt and Mia Hewitt

Tennis champ Lleyton Hewitt and former Home and Away star Bec Hewitt (nee Cartwright) are proud parents of three – Mia, Cruz and Ava. 

Whilst all three are destined for big things, Mia reportedly has high hopes to land a gig on Home and Away like her mum. In 2018, the eldest Hewitt also had a starring role alongside Bec as an ambassador for haircare brand Palmolive.

Plus, they could pass as twins in this pic from Paris Fashion Week in 2019!
