Catherine Zeta-Jones recently shared a photo on Instagram that shows what a striking resemblance she has with her daughter, Carys. Back on Saturday, the Chicago star posted a serene picture of her 17-year-old daughter.
"My girl, in the garden," Zeta-Jones wrote in the caption, with the commenters flooding in to point out that she was the "spitting image" of her mother. Back in April, the actor and husband Michael Douglas both shared tributes to their daughter to commemorate her birthday. Douglas shared a collage of photos, while Zeta-Jones shared a video. In the video, there are different moments of their daughter from family vacations to backyard adventures. "What joy these years have brought me.
