14 Celebrity Kids Who Look Like Clones Of Their Parents


Technically I am an identical twin. However my mother had a miscarriage early in her pregnancy with my twin, Bizarro Emerald, and I survived. I like to joke that I knew this world and the one bedroom apartment my family lived in was not big enough for the both of us. Don’t worry, my mom laughs at that joke. I don’t look anything like my immediate family, I think that’s common in some hispanic households because we are a mix of African, Spanish and Native American, (plus I am part Haitian) so we tend to come out with a range of different colors, features, and hair textures. Some families look exactly alike. I’ve never been told that I look like any of my family members, so it’s sort of always been alien to me to see such strong genes passed on. It’s my favorite part of people watching, besides judging passive aggressiveness between couples and friends, seeing families who look so similar that you just know they are related. Some celebrity children are no different.

Emerald is an editor at CollegeCandy, lover of coffee, and pretend francophile. After studying writing and popular culture at NYU she decided to be a grownup and get a job. Tweet at ya' girl @EmeraldGritty.
