12 Celebrity Children Who Are Carbon Copies of Their Parents, Except for Their Gender
Genetics truly works in mysterious ways, and sometimes it looks like it is purposely picking out certain traits from parents to mix up a completely new being. It can be interesting then to compare how much children resemble their parents. Some kids have inherited their looks from their mom, their dad, or their other relatives, and we decided to make a list of children who look like exact opposite-gender copies of their parents.
1. Victoria Beckham and Romeo Beckham
The former Spice girl has 4 children with the famous English football player David Beckham. Even though their second son Romeo bears some resemblance to David, it would seem he picked up many facial features from his mother.
2. Ryan Phillippe and Ava Phillippe
Ava is the first child from Ryan’s marriage to actress Reese Witherspoon. Although many say mother and daughter look almost identical, the duo stated that they don’t see the resemblance that much. That is probably because Ava inherited her looks from her dad too.
3. Reese Witherspoon and Deacon Phillippe
Reese and Ryan had their second child in 2003, a baby boy named Deacon. The mother and son share some similar features like eyes, nose, and lips.
4. Shakira and Sasha Piqué Mebarak
Shakira is one of the top-selling music artists in the world and has often been referred to as the “Queen of Latin Music.” She has 2 sons with her ex-husband Gerard Piqué. Their youngest son, Sasha, looks a lot like her.
5. Lenny Kravitz and Zoë Kravitz
Many would argue that Zoë looks a lot like her mother, Lisa Bonet, who is also an actress. That is true, however, when comparing the pictures of her and her father, Lenny, the famous rockstar, the resemblance is also undeniable.
6. Elizabeth Hurley and Damian Hurley
It’s not just that Damian inherited looks from his mom but also her affinity for nice clothes and fashion. Elizabeth’s son is also an actor and a model.
7. Jay Z and Blue Ivy
Blue Ivy is Jay Z’s and Beyoncé’s long-awaited baby after, unfortunately, the singer suffered a miscarriage. Thankfully, they welcomed their first baby girl in 2012.
8. Bruce Willis and Rumer Willis
Demi Moore and Bruce Willis were one of the most popular couples during the ’90s, with both of them having very successful acting careers during that time. They have 3 daughters together: Rumer Glenn Willis, Scout LaRue Willis, and Tallulah Belle Willis.
9. Uma Thurman and Levon Roan Thurman-Hawke
Uma Thurman made her breakthrough in the entertainment industry during the ’90s and has had a very successful acting career thus far. She married fellow actor Ethan Hawke in 1998, but the couple eventually divorced. However, they have 2 children together, a daughter Maya and a son Levon. Both Maya and Levon are following in their parent’s footsteps and are building their career in the film industry.

John married Chrissy Teigen in 2013 and they have 2 children together, a daughter and a son. Both children resemble John a lot, and the couple is expecting another child.

There is no doubt that genetics played the literal copy/paste here. The professional basketball player has 2 daughters and a son with his wife Ayesha Alexander. Their oldest daughter, Riley, looks a lot like Stephen.
12. Don Johnson and Dakota Johnson
Dakota Johnson is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. With both of her parents working in the entertainment industry, it was natural for her to step into the acting world. Her first film debut was with her mother in the movie Crazy in Alabama.
