There's been something stirring on reddit recently. It's caused a certain amount of commotion, as reddit users have suddenly discovered something that most people take for granted; sometimes children are very, very similar-looking to their parents.
In fact, as our photo series will illustrate, many children as so similar to their parents that they could be their clones. We don't think that they are their clones since technology hasn't made that possible just yet, but it's quite amazing how close mother nature can make two people without any outside help.
You'll love this series of parent and child photos, they're quite amazing.
1. The One That Started This
This is Shaylyn Gibson and her mom. Obviously, these photos were taken years apart, but the resemblance is beyond uncanny, isn't it? More than 5 million redditors thought so.
2. Matching Outfits
This mother-daughter resemblance is further enhanced by the fact that the daughter tried to recreate her mother's original dress for this photo. Impressive!
3. Not Brothers
These two look like they are brothers, don't they? In fact, they're father and son. The wallpaper is the biggest difference between these two images.
4. After Work?
You'd be hard pushed to believe that the guy on the right isn't the guy on the left outside of work, but it's not. This is a father-son tableau.
5. Striking Similarities
It's nice that this guy went out of his way to find a similar outfit to his father's for the photo, but they'd be a perfect match even without it.
6. Stylist Tweaks
Sure, there's a certain difference in outfits, but there's no mistaking the facial similarities here, is there? Yes, these two are father and son.
They're not twins and they're not brother and sister, they are in fact, father and daughter. As pictured here, dad was five years old and the daughter was four.
These two are near-perfect clones of each other. These father-son snaps were taken 25 years apart, but they could be of the same guy on the same day if we didn't know better.
9. So Cute
Have you noticed? This isn't a mother-daughter picture collection, it's a father-daughter one, and aren't they just a perfect match?
10. Splash Happy
There's even more evidence of similarity here between mother and daughter. Not only do they look alike, but they're both keen swimmers, too.
/u/mambeu says that the fact he and his father positioned their ties the same way naturally made this image feel even more impressive. He did borrow his dad's old glasses for the shot, though/
12. Two Peas In A Pod
This is another mother-daughter set of images. Both of them were just two years old when the photos were taken. The likeness is incredible.
13. Not A Restoration
When reddit users saw this photo, they assumed the color variant was a remaster of the black and white image. In fact, the photos were taken 24 years apart and represent mother and daughter.
14. Almost Identical
Of course, this a father-daughter comparison, so this isn't a perfect match. But it's not far off, is it? The eyes, smile, ears, noses, etc. are identical.
15. Recreating The Scene
/u/BeerisDelicious decided to see how much like his dad he'd look if he wore the same t-shirt and sat the same way. The answer is "a lot."
These are truly incredible images of parents and children, aren't they? Which one was your favorite?
