Have you tried placing current photos of your own right next to either of your parents of the same age? Chances are, you’ll be surprised at how similar you look with either (or both) of them. No matter how hard you try to mask or deny yourself of looking like them, one fact is certain: genetics will always be the culprit when it comes to associating physical attributes to parents or from the generation before them. And it’s not always the son that looks exactly like his father or grandfather. There are instances where a daughter has the same genetic attributes to that of her father or son who owns the same looks as that of his mother.
These images are proof that in the world of genetics, sometimes, the apple doesn’t really fall far from the tree:
1. Daughter Looking Like Her Dad
Not a lot of girls today would complain of having similar physical attributes to their dad. But then again, not all of them are thrilled to looking like carbon copies of them either. But if you compare this picture together, they look exactly the same at the same age.
2. Police Officer Dad and His Look-a-Like Son
Let’s be honest here. If not for the “father” and “son” labels on both pictures, you’d probably think both images are of the same person. After all, they look the same. Except for the quality of each image. In the end, this father-son comparison is just unbelievable.
3. Same Faces, Same Expression
It means one thing when people compare fathers looking like their son. But it’s a different story when you have an infant son making the same facial expression as that of the father of the same age. Like this one. Except for the clothing and hair.
4. Just Like Her Mother
It’s a good bet this picture was intentionally taken to compare the daughter to her mother of the same age. It’s unbelievable how both mother and daughter look so much alike in this picture. Even the daughter wore a black top to prove a point.
5. Sass Like Granny
A lot of people often comment on how kids often get their looks from their parents. But the same can be said of grandparents too. This photo is proof that even a granddaughter can have the sass and looks like her grandmother.
6. Same Clothing, Same Appearance
This photo is as funny and creative as they come. It’s obvious the son wanted to wear the same shirt as his father did of the same age. And sporting the same beard too. It would’ve been a perfect match if the son also wore his newborn the same blue outfit.
7. Daughter Got Daddy’s Look
It’s obvious that almost every kid has some form of resemblance to that of their parents. But it’s a rare instance when a father looks identical to this daughter of the same age. These two could’ve easily passed off as identical twins.
8. Smilin’ Like Her Old Man
Face it. This picture is cuter than cute. It’s always interesting to see a father looking just like his daughter of the same age. These photos are close to being identical and it’s hard to believe they came from the same person. And the smile? Like father, like daughter.
9. Taking It from Her Granny
The best photos are typically the ones where the grandparents look exactly similar to their grandchildren. In this shot, the granddaughter has a natural resemblance as that of her grandmother. They even have similar expressions too.
10. Dressed Like Dad
This picture shows how the son exactly dressed like his dad of the same age. But it doesn’t just end there. While the outfit may seem a bit lame for today’s standards, their looks tell a different story. Their hair, face, and body build are strikingly similar.
11. Just Like The Joker
Looking at these pictures, many would assume something creepingly familiar: they have the same expression of one popular fictional character: The Joker (from Batman). Both father and son look alike. But what binds the two together is their odd-shaped mouth.
12. Very Identical
We all get it. We all attribute our looks from our parents. But when looking at these photos, it’s hard to believe they’re actually from two people. The features are so identical it’s hard to imagine them not being from one person. Amazing stuff.
13. So Much Like His Dad
This pic just shows how a father has a similar resemblance to his son. The son sports the same cute smile like his father of the same age. But if there’s one thing that’s lacking, it’s how their parents need to learn to dress their son right.
14. Like Nerdy Mom, Like Nerdy Daughter
This could be the nerdiest photo of the entire list. While kids are almost always attributed to looking like their parents, this is one is flat out strange. The daughter possesses the same gap teeth like her mother. Not to mention the same poor choice of clothing.
15. Smiles of Boredom
It’s rare to come across photos of children possessing the same look as that of their parents. This picture is proof that such instance exist. These two look exactly like each other. But both have attributed the same boring smile. A little more happiness please?
There’s no denying that the images shown are of children who are exact replicas of their parents back in their younger days. Whether the parents’ offspring are still children or have grown up to be adults, one thing is certain: genetics will always be passed on and mini versions of parents themselves is a trippy experience that many will never forget. Whether it’s in the form of mannerisms or facial features — it would seem like looking into one’s self in the future: a mirror that can be cool to look at while being mind boggling at the same time. If your parents are good looking and you were able to inherit this trait, there’s also a chance you can pass on this trait in the next generation. But like science, genetics can be unpredictable and you’ll never know when a piece of you will end up.
