You may have heard of the salty, black, spreadable condiment that people in Australia eat every day as part of a balanced diet. For most people outside of the continent down under, its flavor is pretty unappealing. However, one op-ed recently made the case for why parents across the globe in the US should be replacing the classic PB&J in their kids’ lunches with Vegemite sandwiches.
While the author admits that for adults it’s too late, as Vegemite is an acquired taste that most of us are too old to get used to, she states that starting kids young will get them used to the taste and they will even enjoy it. According to Dr. Julie Mennella, a biopsychologist who specializes in the development of food flavor preferences in humans, “Biologically, children are predisposed to overconsume all that is sweet.”
Thousands of years ago, this attraction to sweets would have helped children eat more fruits, which helps them survive. But now, in our society, kids don’t just eat fruit to get that sweet taste, they mostly eat packaged food that has tons of added sugar. This predisposition to like sweets is probably why PB&J is so appealing to kids.
However, even though natural peanut butter is pretty healthy and the fruits that the jelly is made from are good for you, all the added sugar in the peanut butter, jelly, and even white bread make the sandwich a pretty unhealthy option.
Apparently, Australians think they have the answer. According to the experts, the best way to make a Vegemite sandwich is on whole grain or sourdough bread, which already makes it healthier. Spread about a teaspoon of Vegemite and a bit of butter on the bread. Finally, top it off with some avocado and/or cheese. While Vegemite has about two grams of sugar per 100 grams, peanut butter usually has about nine – that’s about four times the sugar in a PB&J from just the peanut butter alone!
Basically, between taking out the sugar from the PB&J fillings and replacing them with the less sugary Vegemite, adding avocado for some of your daily veggies, and finally, using healthier bread, it seems like Australians might be onto something here! Plus, giving kids less sugar from artificially sweetened ingredients at a young age has been shown to decrease their sweet tooth overall.
So if you want to give it a try, you can find Vegemite in the international section of most supermarkets. Just remember not to talk about how gross you think it is in front of the kids – they might actually find it delicious!
13 Stunning Celebrity Children At The Same Age As Their Parents
They are some of Hollywood’s biggest names, but have you met their children yet?
Kate Moss and Lila Grace Moss – Age 14
Kate Moss established herself as one of the biggest names in the modeling industry and, still many years on, she proves why she used to own the catwalk. It is no surprise, therefore, that her stunning looks were passed on to the next generation and given to her daughter, Lila Grace Moss. In fact, the young beauty has already starred on the cover of Italian Vogue and, at just 15 years old, she is sure to continue her success and career as a model.
Kate Beckinsale and Lily Sheen – Age 17
Kate Beckinsale may be a successful actress, but there is no missing her gorgeous looks that have been inherited by her teenage daughter, Lily. The daughter of Kate and Michael Sheen may be looking to follow in her parent’s footsteps, but she is already looking like her mother. While Lily has had minor roles in films, she is currently focusing on her education before making her career path decision. With talented genes running in her family, it will be no surprise if she becomes the next big star.
Bette Midler and Sophie Von Haselberg – Age 31
With a long career in Hollywood, Bette Midler has earned herself a $230 million net-worth, proving she was one star to look out for. Having Bette Midler as your mother must have been an exciting experience, but that did not mean that Sophie von Haslberg did not want to be like everyone else. The only daughter of the legendary actress and singer decided she wished to make a living on her own and launched her own career. Sophie has since starred in Irrational Man and Ask for Jane.
Jim Carrey and Jane Carrey – Age 30
Just before reaching the age of 30, Jim Carrey gained recognition in Hollywood for his role in the sketch comedy series, In Living Color. Since then, the comedian has appeared in major hit films and has become one of the biggest names in Hollywood. It seems as though his daughter inherited his captivating smile, and also the desire to have a career in the entertainment world. However, she is not following suit in his father’s acting footsteps, but Jane Carrey is an aspiring singer.
Charles Delevingne & Cara Delevingne – Age 20
She has paved her way as one of the biggest supermodels of the moment, and Cara Delevingne has earned her own fame and fortune thanks to her good looks and famous eyebrows. While Cara has made the big bucks based on her beauty and talents, she has her father to thank for inheriting his thick eyebrows. In fact, Cara and her father, Charles Delevingne, share such a similar resemblance that the young model could be considered the female version of her father.
Bob Marley and Ziggy Marley – Age 35
Bob Marley may have passed away over thirty years ago, but the famous singer’s legacy has continued to live on. With hits such as “Jamming”, “One Love”, and “Waiting in Vain”, Marley became one of the best selling artists of all time. Meanwhile, Marley’s son, Ziggy Marley, followed in his legendary father’s footsteps by founding a band called Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. Ziggy also joined his dad’s band, the Wailers, shortly after his passing, as well as, continued with his own solo career.
Kirk Douglas and Michael Douglas – Age 30
The Douglas family has proven they are a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood since Kirk and Michael have spent years showing off their talented acting skills. Kirk Douglas, who is currently 101 years old, has had a long career in film. Throughout his 70 years in show business, he appeared in over 50 movies, and it seems his son wished to follow suit. Michael has gone on to appear in too many films to list, and now we wait to see if his son follows suit.
Lenny Kravitz and Zoë Kravitz – Age 26
When your father is Lenny Kravitz, it is no surprise that you would want to copy his every move. His daughter, Zoë Kravitz, has proven that her father is a legend in her eyes too since, at the age of 26, she was following the same style that he was rocking at the same age. Their matching dreadlocks, clothing, and piercings, as well as, the fact that Zoë is an actress and singer, proves that her parents have certainly inspired her.
Maria Shiver and Katherine Schwarzenegger – Age 23
If you have seen the children of Arnold Schwarzenegger and his former wife, Maria Shiver, then you would know that they certainly have very good-looking offspring. Their gorgeous daughter Katherine is not showing off her stunning beauty like her siblings, however, and is preferably living away from the limelight. Having watched her father dominate the big screen over the years, it seems that Katherine has chosen not to follow suit. Rather, she is a writer who is more interested in becoming an author than an actor.
Will Smith and Jaden Smith – Age 18
At 22 years old, Will Smith gained recognition for his starring role in the television series, The French Prince of Bel Air. After the show’s six-year success, Smith transitioned to film and has since been ranked as the most bankable star worldwide by Forbes. No surprise, therefore, that his son, Jaden Smith, has inherited his great genes, which include his good looks and impeccable acting skills. Jaden has already performed as an actor and a singer, and he is sure to have a bright future ahead of him.
Steven Tyler and Liv Tyler – Age 30
When your father is the lead vocalist for the band Aerosmith, it may be daunting even try to follow suit and pursue a singing career. That is probably why we will never know if Liv Tyler can even sing. However, while she may not become the next big rock star, Liv is certainly showing she is a talented, young lady. With her own set of skills and good looks, she has made a living for herself becoming both a model and an actress.
Julio Iglesias and Enrique Iglesias – Age 42
Enrique Iglesias continues to release hit after hit, but did you know that his father is also a Latino icon? That’s right, the handsome singer has a handsome father who was a hit in the 70’s and sold millions of records. Enrique must have aspired to win the many accolades he saw his father win, and he has proven to be famous in his own right becoming one of the biggest Spanish artists in history. Good genes are running in the Iglesias family, that is for sure.
Pierce Brosnan and Dylan Brosnan – Age 20
Pierce Brosnan has a well-established career in Hollywood, having started acting in the ’80s and been in some of the most prominent box-office hits. After all, he did go on to play the leading role in James Bond, 007, becoming the fifth actor to take on the title role. Meanwhile, his son Dylan is not hoping to follow in his father’s footsteps and play the next James Bond anytime soon. Rather, he has inherited the actor’s good looks and has worked for leading modeling brands such as Burberry.
Christopher Reeve and Will Reeve – Age 25
His father was the real-life Superman which made him a hero for his son to look up to. However, Will Reeve lost his superhero father when he was just 11 years old, followed by the loss of his mother, Dana, only two years later. Things were not easy for a teenage Will, but he managed to go to college and obtain a degree, for which he was fortunate to afford with thanks to his parent’s great fortune. It also seems as though Will inherited his looks from his father!
Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner – Age 21
Stories of the Kardashian/Jenner clan are everywhere you turn, but it is one of the younger sisters who has set out to make her own career. Kendall Jenner has become one of the world’s most successful models, even winning the award for Model of the Year in 2017. If you look at her matriarch momager, Kris Jenner, you can see an uncanny resemblance to her daughter from over 40 years ago. There is no denying that Kris is still rocking it in her 60’s, and is probably more glamorous than ever.
Jayne Mansfield And Mariska Hargitay – Age 29
Playing the most popular female character on TV, Olivia Benson, Mariska Hargitay doesn’t seem to feel any shadow of her mother’s fame lingering over her career. Her famous mother, Jayne Mansfield, was a well-known model in her younger years, frequently posing for adult magazines like Playboy. Mariska has certainly inherited her mother’s beauty, even if she’s chosen to pursue a different sort of career in entertainment. While Jayne’s career peaked in her 20s, it would take longer for Mariska to achieve the same level of fame.
Madonna And Lourdes Leon – Age 21
With her shocking pop hits in the 1980s and beyond, Madonna may not have seemed destined for motherhood, but fans couldn’t get enough of her young family. Madonna may look better than ever in middle age, but her daughter has finally grown up and looks just like her mother did in the years just before she struck fame. Lourdes is following in her iconic mom’s footsteps in more than just her looks, as she’s also a fashion icon in her own right.
Martin Sheen And Charlie Sheen – Age 20
Given the younger Sheen’s antics, sometimes it can be hard to remember that he comes from a famous family. Father Martin Sheen came into his famous family name after burying his given name, Ramón Gerard Antonio Estévez, in order to make it in Hollywood. Nevertheless, he named his son, Carlos Estevez, who then also changed his name to Charlie in order to become more Hollywood friendly. The pair has worked on several film projects together, making them one of the most recognizable family dynasties.
Susan Sarandon & Eva Amurri Martino – Age 30
Susan Sarandon has gained high recognition in Hollywood after starring in films such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Atlantic City, so it is no surprise that her daughter wished to follow in her famous footsteps. Eva Amurri is Sarandon’s daughter with her ex-boyfriend, Franco Amurri, and she decided to pursue a career as an actress. While Amurri has many more years to catch up with her mother’s time in the entertainment industry, she can already take credit for roles in Californication and Middle of Nowhere.
Alan Thicke and Robin Thicke – Age 30
Robin Thicke broke records with his 2013 music video for “Blurred Lines,” but this was not Thicke’s first glimpse into the music world. Certainly not, since he has been in the industry for over two decades now, and is also the son of a fellow entertainer. In fact, Robin is the son of Growing Pains actor, Alan Thicke, who was also a notable host in his prime. Unfortunately, the actor died in 2016, but Robin can continue the Thicke legacy and their work within the entertainment industry.
Reese Witherspoon and Ava Elizabeth Phillippe – Age 18
Reese Witherspoon has proven her worth in Hollywood having starred in Legally Blonde, Walk the Line, and Big Little Lies. However, it seems that there is another lady who could be mistaken for the Academy Award-winning actress, and that will have to be her lookalike daughter, Ava Elizabeth Phillippe. The eldest daughter from Reese’s former marriage is the spitting image of the actress and, at 18 years old, she could certainly follow in her mother’s (and father’s) acting footsteps.
Uma Thurman and Maya Thurman-Hawke – Age 19
She starred in famous hits such as Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill movies, so you are sure to have heard of or recognize the successful actress, Uma Thurman. Having established herself in Hollywood, Thurman’s resume also shows a career in modeling. With such beautiful looks, it is no surprise Thurman was wanted within the modeling industry, and the same can be said for her lookalike daughter, Maya Thurman-Hawke. Maya is hoping to follow in the footsteps of her mother in both modeling and acting.
Donald Sutherland and Kiefer Sutherland – Age 51
Kiefer Sutherland is a well-known actor in Hollywood and is well-known for his leading role in the TV hit, 24. While he has certainly done well for himself and is showing no signs of slowing down during his 50’s, there is someone he must have been inspired by to follow this path. That great man would be his own award-winning father, Donald Sutherland, who began his career in 1962 and has appeared in films such as The Hunger Games franchise, Ordinary People, and Citizen X.
Clint Eastwood and Scott Eastwood – Age 30
He is an Academy Award winner and multi-millionaire, but that does not mean that Clint Eastwood’s son, Scott, got an easy pass into the entertainment business. In fact, the famous director and actor made his son earn both his college money and acting gigs on his own, which did involve having small parts in some of his dad’s films. He has since starred in The Fate of the Furious and has an enjoyable net worth to his name, which he can say he earned himself.
Meryl Streep and Mamie Gummer – Age 31
Her mom is one of the most famous women in the world, who has a world record of 21 Academy Award nominations, of which she has won three. Therefore, it is no surprise that her daughter, Mamie Gummer, must feel the pressure to follow in the exact footsteps of her mother. While reaching the same status as her mother is one of the more challenging goals in life, she has followed suit to become an actress and has already landed herself TV and film roles.
Jude Law and Rafferty Law – Age 21
British actor, Jude Law, has made a name for himself across the pond after starring in a run of successful hit films over the years. It also does not hurt that Law is kind on the eyes, allowing the audience to fall in love with him for more than his acting skills. Good news is that Law’s handsome genes have been passed onto his son who he shares with actress Sadie Frost. At 21 years old, Rafferty Law has already modeled for luxury brands including Dolce & Gabbana.
Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson – Age 25
Dakota Johnson has been starring as Ana Steele for the last three years, appearing on the Fifty Shades of Grey movie franchise. However, she is not just another aspiring actress who won her first acting role in the film. Rather, she has been very familiar with the entertainment industry since she is the daughter of 80’s power couple, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. In fact, her first acting gig was in 1999, and we’re sure she has had some very good acting advice from her talented parents.
Jack Nicholson and Ray Nicholson – Age 26
For over 60 years, the legendary Jack Nicolson has been performing in the entertainment industry. At 26, however, Nicolson was not having much luck with his acting career and took to working behind the camera. Fast forward some years, and he has been nominated for 12 Academy Awards, making him the most nominated male actor in the Academy’s history. Perhaps this is why his son Ray chose to follow suit and become an actor, as well as, an assistant director. Hopefully, the Nicolson name is only destined for success.
Tom Hanks and Colin Hanks – Age 25
When you look like a multi-award winning actor, you must get many mistaken fans asking for your autograph. However, when that person you are being mistaken for is your father, it may not be exactly what you want to hear. As for Colin Hanks, we can imagine he is proud of his famous father who starred in the hit film Forest Gump and is worth millions of dollars.
Eric Roberts and Emma Roberts – Age 27
The Roberts name is no stranger in Hollywood, mainly thanks to America’s sweetheart, Julia, who has captivated the world with her acting talents and captivating smile. Her brother, Eric was the first member of the family to set his sights on Hollywood in the mid 70’s and has since garnered over 400 credits. Meanwhile, his daughter Emma started off her career in 2004 in Nickelodeon’s, Unfabulous, and has since managed to surpass her father when it comes to her net value.
Blythe Danner & Gwyneth Paltrow – Age 44
While Gwyneth Paltrow has gone on to become one of the most recognized names in Hollywood, she learned a lot from her mother, Blythe Danner. The seasoned actress has been in the film industry for nearly 50 years and has starred alongside Woody Allen in a handful of his movies. Of course, Danner received a lot of buzz after starring alongside the likes of Robert DeNiro and Ben Stiller in the comedy film series Meet The Parents.
Stellan Skarsgard & Alexander Skarsgard – Age 34
While Stellan Skarsgard’s reputation in Hollywood has slowly developed over the years, his sons seem to have blown up at a much younger age. Bill Skarsgard might be a huge blockbuster hit with his role as Pennywise the Clown in It: Chapter 1 and 2, however, his brother Alexander is also making a big splash in the world of acting right now. With big roles in shows such as True Blood and Big Little Lies, Alexander is here to stay.
Damon Wayans & Damon Wayans Jr. – Age 30
The Wayans are undoubtedly one of the most prolific families in the world of comedy. While Damon Wayans has been very successful with his own sitcom My Wife and Kids, his son, Damon Wayans Jr. has also landed some big roles in TV over the last few years. Although the show Happy Endings ended up getting canceled after a couple of seasons, it was critically acclaimed and Wayans Jr. had a big part to play in its success.
Peggy Lipton & Rashida Jones – Age 26
When you are the child of a multimillion-dollar record producer and a model, you are simply destined for success. This is what happened for Rashida Jones, who ended up becoming famous in her own right, after being brought up by parents Peggy Lipton and Quincy Jones. She has gone on to star in numerous movies, such as I Love You, Man, and has been a main in shows such as Parks and Recreation and Angie Tribeca. Sadly, Rashida’s mom Peggy died in 2018 after a long battle with cancer.
John Lennon & Sean Lennon – Age 31
It must be difficult following in the footsteps of one of the greatest musicians to ever live. And while Sean Lennon might never be as famous as his late father John, he is sure to be stopped in the street every once in a while for his resemblance to The Beatles legend. He looked enough like his father already, but the fact that Sean also wears similar glasses to his “old man” definitely hits home how much they look alike.
David Beckham & Brooklyn Beckham – Age 17
There was a time when David Beckham was one of the greatest soccer players in the world. While he was winning trophies for the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid, he was also busy being one of the most marketable celebrities on the planet. He also started to build a family with Spice Girl wife Victoria. His firstborn, Brooklyn, is the double of “Golden Balls.” It definitely helps that both of his parents are fairly good-looking individuals.
Lisa Marie Presley & Riley Keough — Age 29
The only child to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Lisa Marie Presley is a singer-songwriter, issuing three albums of her own. Although she followed her father’s footsteps, Lisa’s daughter — Riley Keough — decided to go down the path of modeling and acting, which is still in the entertainment industry nonetheless. In any event, Keough is best known for her appearances in films like Magic Mike and Logan Lucky. She also gained prominence for her role in George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road. We think Elvis would be very, very proud…
Goldie Hawn & Kate Hudson — Age 25
Goldie Hawn, aside from being Hollywood royalty, is an American actress who rose to fame on the NBC sketch comedy program Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In. She then went on to receive the Academy Award and Golden Globe for her performance in the 1969 romantic-comedy Cactus Flower. Hawn’s daughter, Kate Hudson, is no stranger to the spotlight. While she started her career as a dancer, she ultimately shifted to acting on both television and film. Not only did she inherit her mother’s talent, receiving awards of her own throughout the years, but she also seems to have taken after Hawn in the looks department — same facial features and golden locks.
Kate Capshaw & Jessica Capshaw — Age 31
Kate Capshaw, a.k.a. Mrs. Spielberg is a retired actress best known for her performance as Willie Scott in the 1984 action film Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. She went on to star in other movies including Dreamscape and The Love Letter. Although Kate married Steven Spielberg in ’91, she did have one child — Jessica — from her previous marriage. You may recognize the blonde bombshell as she played Dr. Arizona Robbins on the medical drama TV series Grey’s Anatomy from 2009-2018. And with that, we think it’s safe to say that Kate passed her talent and good looks onto her daughter…
Billy Joel & Alexa Ray Joel — Age 25
Alexa Ray Joel is the daughter of Billy Joel and supermodel Christie Brinkley. Considering that her father is a musical genius, it comes as no surprise that Alexa took after him. While she may not have inherited her mom’s qualities, Alexa certainly grew up with her dad’s musical talents. By the age of 19, she had performed her first live show. Now, at 34 years old, Alexa has her own album and several singles to her name. Aside from all of that, though, doesn’t Alexa totally take after Billy in the looks department also? From their deep-set eyes to their full lips, there’s no doubt that Alexa is the piano man’s daughter.
Denzel Washington & John David Washington — Age 33
If you grow up with an award-winning actor father like Denzel Washington, you’re just automatically destined for greatness. That’s why it’s really no surprise that John David Washington, Denzel’s oldest son, inherited both his father’s good looks and acting skills. His first experience in the entertainment industry was when he was just seven years old. He appeared as a student in Spike Lee’s 1992 film Malcolm X, which Denzel starred in. Before returning to acting in 2015, though, John played professional football. Today, he’s best known for his role in the HBO comedy series Ballers.
John Aniston & Jennifer Aniston — Late 30s
Sure — Jennifer Aniston has undoubtedly made herself a household name over the years but she may have had some help along the way. Aside from inheriting her glowing skin and Greek features from her father, John, she also happened to get his acting skills. That’s right, guys. John Aniston was in the industry long before Jen was even born. He’s best known for his role as Victor Kiriakis on the NBC daytime drama series Days of Our Lives.
Lebron James & Lebron James Jr. — Age 14
Even if you’re not a big basketball fan or avid watcher, we can guarantee that you know the name, LeBron James. A player for the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron is often regarded as the greatest basketball player of all time. He married his high school sweetheart, Savannah Brinson, got married in 2013 and now share three children together. LeBron James Jr. or ‘Bronny’ seems like he’s following in his father’s footsteps. He’s apart of the Amateur Athletic Union‘s North Coast Blue Chipsbasketball team.
Kim Kardashian West & North West — Age 5
Kim may have had a more or less scandalous start but there’s no denying that she’s established herself throughout the years. Now one of the most successful media personalities and businesswomen in all of Hollywood, Kim is known and praised for her curves. She stepped into the spotlight when ‘skinny’ was the most fashionable thing around. She gave confidence to all women out there with bigger bottoms and heavier chests, showing them to love themselves exactly as they are. With that, we have no doubt that Kim is instilling the same values in her own daughter.
Kelly Ripa & Lola Consuelos — Late Teens
Named by The Hollywood Reporter as one of the “Most Powerful People in Media,” Kelly Ripa is an actress and talk-show host. She’s most widely known for her portrayal as Hayley Vaughan on the ABC daytime soap opera All My Children in which she acted alongside her now-husband, Mark Consuelos. She is also the co-host of the syndicated morning talk show, Live! with Kelly and Ryan. Although their daughter, Lola, has attended some red carpet events from time to time, she has yet to give us any signs that she wants to follow in her parent’s footsteps.
Janet Leigh & Jamie Lee Curtis — Age 25
Jamie Lee Curtis has been known as the scream queen of Hollywood since her days as Laurie Strode in John Carpenter’s horror film Halloween. What you guys may have not known, though, is that Curtis inherited her stunning looks and acting abilities from none other than her parents and old-time actors, Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis. Janet was most recognized as the doomed Marion Crane in Alred Hitchcock’s 1960 Psycho. Tony Curtis achieved the height of his popularity during the fifties and sixties, including the time he starred in Houdini alongside his then-wife, Janet.
Gwyneth Paltrow & Apple Martin – Age 15
There is no better saying than, “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” when describing the resemblance between these two. Apple is the eldest of two of Gwenyth’s children from her marriage to Coldplay’s Chris Martin. Although it may seem like the two just look like mother and daughter, there is no denying that at age 15 the two look very similar.
Chris Pine & Robert Pine – Age 35
Robert Pine is best known as Sgt. Joseph Getraer on CHiPs, and the rest of his TV credits are too long to list here. His son, Chris Pine, looks a lot like his father. Younger generations might not recognize Robert, yet Chris is famous for playing many high-profile movie roles. He was Captain Kirk in the Star Trek reboot from 2009 to 2016, Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman, and (most recently) Robert the Bruce in Outlaw King.
Georgia May Jagger & Mick Jagger – Age 25
Georgia May Jagger takes after her father, Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger. Despite looking more like him than some of Jagger’s other kids, she has followed in the footsteps of Jerry Hall, her American model mother, becoming a model and designer when she came of age. Georgia May moved to New York in 2010 to continue her fashion career, although she notably appeared at the closing ceremony at the 2012 Olympics in London as a representative of British fashion, alongside Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell.
Ireland Baldwin & Kim Basinger – Age 24
When you look at her face, you can see that Ireland Baldwin has a lot in her from her father, Alec Baldwin, yet there’s a good reason she’s most often compared to her mother, Kim Basinger. Just like her, Ireland became a model and actress, although substance abuse issues and rehabilitation programs have forced her to take breaks from her modeling career. As far as acting is concerned, Ireland debuted playing the daughter of Basinger’s character in Grudge Match, a 2013 film featuring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro.
Ashley Judd & Naomi Judd – Age 30
Ashley Judd is the younger sister of Wynona Judd, who became famous as part of the mother-daughter duo The Judds, and they look alike. The Judds sold more than 20 million albums before they disbanded in 1991, after Naomi announced doctors had diagnosed her with Hepatitis C. Although Ashley wasn’t part of her family’s Grammy-winning ensemble, Ashley became famous as an actor who played in movies like Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Ashley is also an activist heavily involved in humanitarian work.
Dylan Penn & Robin Wright – Age 26
Sean Penn has come a long way since playing Spicoli on Fast Times in Ridgemont High, establishing himself as a superb actor in the ’80s and ’90s, which happened to be the same time future (ex) wife Robin Wright was making a name for herself as a superb actress. When you look at their daughter, Dylan Penn, she looks just a tad bit more like her mother than she does like Sean. Dylan has followed in her parents’ footsteps and become an actress, yet she is most notable for her successful modeling career.
Patrick Schwarzenegger & Arnold Schwarzenegger – Age 23
Patrick Schwarzenegger made his film debut at the age of 10 in the movie Benchwarmers. Now in his mid-20s, he’s taken after his father quite a bit. To be fair, he also looks like his mother, Maria Shriver, who is also a member of the prolific Kennedy family, yet he is undeniably his father’s son. Instead of going into writing like his journalist mother, Patrick followed in his father’s footsteps. Not into bodybuilding and weightlifting (although he does look like he keeps in shape), but acting and modeling.
Christie Brinkley And Sailor Brinkley Cook – Age 19
Christie Brinkley was one of the most iconic models in the 1970s and ’80s, despite being only a teenager when she started out. Even as she’s aged, Christie still looks incredible, traits that her youngest daughter, Sailor, seems to have also inherited. Just as her mom did in her late teens, Sailor has embarked on a modeling career of her own. With looks that are strikingly similar, it’s likely that Sailor will also find fame on her own terms.
Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber – Age 16
Cindy Crawford is one of the biggest supermodels of all time, and the legendary model’s daughter is following in her footsteps. Kaia Gerber, at age 16, has already had her own Vogue covers and walked the catwalk for major fashion brands.
Faith Hill And Audrey McGraw – Age 18
With one of the most successful country artists of all time as your mom, it’s hard to not try to follow in her footsteps. While her daughter is rarely in the public eye and unrecognizable, Audrey is practically Faith’s mini-me — just with brown hair! The pair were seen together just before Audrey’s birthday at the Versace NYC show and they looked almost like sisters. Audrey shares her parents’ musical genes and we hope to hear her voice one day.
Yolanda Hadid and Gigi Hadid – Age 22
You are probably very familiar with the name Gigi Hadid since, over the last few years, she has appeared on every major magazine cover and fashion catwalk. From Tommy Hilfiger to Chanel, Gigi Hadid has shown no slowing down, and she is only 22! It is her mother, Yolanda Hadid, who she can thank for her model looks and figure, however, since Yolanda was a huge hit in the ’80s. Before settling down to have a family, it was Yolanda who was jetting around the globe to walk the runways.
Cheryl Ladd & Jordan Ladd – Age 30
The apple certainly didn’t fall far from the tree as far as Cheryl Ladd is concerned. The seasoned actress is best known for her role as Kris Munroe in the classic action series Charlie’s Angels, having replaced Farrah Fawcett from the second season onwards. Then there’s Cheryl’s daughter, Jordan Ladd. While she hasn’t necessarily hit the same heights as her mother, Jordan has had her fair share of success on-screen, having starred in movies such as Never Been Kissed and Death Proof.
Heather Locklear and Ava Sambora – Age 20
There is no missing Heather Locklear when she appears on screen, as most people are sure to give her a double take thanks to her beautiful hair and striking eyes. At 20-years-old Locklear was a vision of beauty, and it seems as though her daughter, Ava Sambora, has inherited her mother’s good looks. While studying at Loyola Marymount University, Ava is also reportedly pursuing a career as a model. Locklear’s career can certainly be an inspiration for her children, but perhaps not everything should be followed suit.
