Do you know that saying "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree"? Well, it can't be more true when it comes to kids who look just like their parents. Somehow, when that happens, it's like they won the genetics lottery.

And there are plenty of celebrities with offspring who are pretty much the mini versions of themselves. So let's look at some of these uncanny resemblances. Shall we?

Goldie Hawn

Goldie Hawn has two children with ex-husband Bill Hudson, Oliver Hudson (45) and Kate Hudson (43), but it's Kate who resembles her mom to a tee. The mother and daughter have always had a special connection that goes beyond the family resemblance.

Kate Hudson

Even though Kate Hudson was in an acting family, her mom Goldie Hawn, and step-dad Kurt Russell told her to forge her own path. Mom Goldie advised Kate on many roles she took or passed on. But of course, when you look at these two, it's pretty clear they're related. Am I right?

Ryan Phillippe And Reese Witherspoon

Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon became a hot item after they met on the set of Cruel Intentions. But sadly their marriage only lasted seven years. However, something beautiful came out of the union: their two children Ava and Deacon.

Ava Phillippe

Speaking of Ava, she is definitely a spitting image of both her mom and dad. This girl is one of the people who won the gene lottery, which is a good thing since she's also in the entertainment industry.

Beyoncé And Jay-Z

It seems that Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been crazy in love for quite some time now. They met when Beyoncé was only 18-years-old. Since then, they have become the power couple they are today and welcomed their first daughter Blue Ivy Carter in January 2012.

Many kids resemble their parents, and Blue Ivy is no exception here. She is the perfect combination of mom and dad and even has all the sass, ha, ha. I don't know about you, but I think she can be the next Beyoncé, too.

Billy Ray Cyrus And Tish Cyrus

American country singer and actor Billy Cyrus is very well known for such hits as Achy Breaky Heart, which made line dancing hugely popular. But nowadays, he's equally famous for his daughter, Miley Cyrus, and all her musical success.

Before Miley Cyrus was swinging on wrecking balls, she came into the scene as the wholesome Hanna Montana. So it's no wonder she wanted to shatter that persona, haha. But it's her resemblance to her famous dad that definitely pushed her to the top.

Cindy Crawford And Rande Gerber

Can you believe Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber just celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary? Oh, yes. They married in 1998 in the Bahamas, and the Baha Men were their wedding band before they even became a household name. The couple shares two children, Kaia and Preston.

Kaia Gerber

Who knew that Kaia Gerber would end up looking just like her mom? That resemblance definitely didn't hurt her career as she followed in her mother's footsteps and became a model. I guess it really does run in the family as her brother Preston is a model too. Wow!

Sean Penn And Robin Wright

Sean Penn and Robin Wright began their romance back in 1989. After having two children daughter Dylan Frances and son Hopper Jack they tied the knot in 1996. However, their union didn't last and they called it quits in 2010.

Dylan Penn

Even though Sean Penn and Robin Wright's marriage didn't last, they did make perfect offspring. Their daughter Dylan is like a mirror image of them both. Don't you think so? Amazing, huh? Doesn't she look absolutely stunning or what?

Chrissy Teigen And John Legend

This sweet romance began when Chrissy Teigen and John Legend met in 2006 on the set of Legend’s “Stereo” music video. Eventually, the pair tied the knot in Lake Como, Italy, in 2013. They later welcomed daughter Luna in April 2016 and son Miles in May 2018.

Miles Stephens

You can't deny the familiar look when you glance at Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's son, Miles. The boy is pretty much a mini-me of his dad, ha, ha. Together the four of them make the sweetest family. Don't you think so?

Eugene Levy And Deborah Divine

Canadian funnyman Eugene Levy is definitely a firecracker. I bet that's what his wife of 43 years, Deborah, would say. The two met in 1973 when Levy was just starting in the Second City Toronto cast. Six years later, they welcomed their two children, Dan and Sarah.

Dan Levy

Growing up in the Levy household must've been fun. It's no wonder that something must've rubbed off on Dan Levy, ha, ha. So much so that he followed in his dad's footsteps and became a funnyman himself. The two even star opposite each other on the hit TV show Schitt's Creek. And, of course, you can't miss their resemblance to one another. It's quite remarkable.

Chris Martin And Gwyneth Paltrow

I was so excited when Gwyneth Paltrow married Coldplay's frontman, Chris Martin. They seemed like the perfect couple. So when 11 years later, they announced their "conscious uncoupling," which became the "it" phrase of that time, I was pretty sad. However, their union brought them two beautiful gifts, the daughter Apple and the son Moses.

Apple Martin

As I said earlier, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree," and that couldn't be more true than with Apple Martin. The daughter of Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow made headlines as soon as she was born. Her unusual name had everyone talking. But now, I'm sure people notice the amazing resemblance she shares with her mom and dad. Am I right?

Wow! What do you think of that?

It's amazing how these celebrities' children look so much like them, eh? I bet the parents couldn't be prouder. Not only are the kids healthy and happy, but they share such fantastic genes. I don't know about you, but I think it's so cool to see.
