While many celebrity parents work to keep their kids out of the spotlight, a select few can never disguise their look-alike offspring.
From sweet mother-daughter duos like Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise to older children who can't escape the similarities to their parents (read: Tom and Colin Hanks), these famous moms and dads have created cute kids who boast strikingly similar features.
For some, it's even difficult to tell them apart!
Keep scrolling to see these stars and their look-alike kids.
Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe:
Reese Witherspoon and daughter Ava Phillippe, whom she shares with ex Ryan Phillippe, are arguably Hollywood's most similar mother-daughter duo — though Ava also bears a striking resemblance to her father.
But aside from their mirror-image looks, Witherspoon said she and her daughter have similar personalities and drive. "I think the way Ava and I are most alike is our strong opinions and our empathy. From the time that she could speak, Ava has always had her own ideas, and I love to watch her express herself," she said on her blog, Love, Reese.
"She also cares deeply about her family and the world around her. She frequently educates me on news stories and issues young women are facing," the proud mom continued.prevnext
Candace Cameron Bure and Natasha Bure:
To look at Natasha Bure is to go back in time to the days when DJ Tanner was fawning over Steve Hale.
Full House star Candace Cameron Bure, 41, and her daughter, 19, look more like sisters on the red carpet, but the mother-daughter duo have kept up with their relationship both on and off screen.
Candace, a veteran actress for Hallmark original films, recruited her and husband Valeri Bure's eldest of three kids to play her daughter in Switched for Christmas, which premiered in 2017.
"I made it a point to be a co-star and not a mom when we were filming," Candace told People of working alongside her daughter. "It was really important to me to make sure I let the director do their job and not give Natasha any acting notes. I did make sure she understood the technical aspects of what was going on during filming because I think that kind of stuff is really important for any newer actor to learn. It makes their jobs easier in the future."prevnext

David Beckham and his sons:

Beckham passed down his structured facial frame and rugged style to eldest son, Brooklyn, and his younger offspring, Cruz, in addition to Romeo. But while they share their dad's looks, they don't necessarily plan on following in his footsteps.
"One of my boys turned around to me the other day and said, 'Daddy, you know, I'm not sure I want to play football all the time...' It broke my heart a little bit," Beckham told ABC News in 2015. He said his son told him, "Every time that I step onto the field, I know people are saying, 'This is David Beckham's son', and if I'm not as good as you, then it's not good enough."
"I said, 'Okay, stop right there... You play because you want to play,'" Beckham said.prevnext

"She is a wonderful student and a really great girl and an interested person," she previously told People.
