When it comes to what a child will look like when born, it all lands on genetics. Some are stronger than most, but at the end of the day, they will resemble someone in their family, be it mom, dad, or even a grandparent. Celebrities seem to be the ones with the best doppelgangers, though. Their children come out as spitting image of either their famous mother or their famous father.
Sometimes it doesn’t happen until they are older; sometimes it's apparent the moment they are born. Either way, genetics are crazy, and it is wild when a parent is walking down the street, be it a celebrity or a normal person, and they have a mini-me version of them walking next to them or in their arms. It might be freaky, but at the same time, it is super cool. Being able to pass one’s DNA down to the next generation and to know that a piece of that person will live on in their children, and their children’s children is an amazing thing.
Having a parent look into the eyes of the child that is the spitting image of them, is like looking into a funhouse mirror that sees into the future.
