We recently brought you a post on doll doubles – babies who look eerily similar to their dolls. And while our audience was divided on whether the similarities were creepy or cute, we all have to admit, they were captivating to look at.

And so, when we stumbled upon this series of side-by-side photos of parents and their kids, we were, once again, floored by the uncanny resemblances.

All of these photos are taken of parents (or grandparents) at the same age as their own children. And, they certainly take “it’s all in the family,” to a whole new level.

Like father, like son

Cuteness didn’t skip a generation with this adorable father-son duo.

Thirty years later, and the long blond hair and oversized glasses are making a comeback. The only difference between this mother and daughter is the quality of the camera.

Double denim (it never goes out of style)

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty stoked to see that this classic denim vest remained tucked away in the closet for the next generation. Good on you, Dad.

Note the matching flannel number beside the father and son. Double win.

Hugh’s your Daddy?

There’s no denying the resemblance between this father and son. They look almost identical apart from the obvious generation gap. And both look just a little bit like a younger Hugh Jackman. Does anyone else see it? (or do I have Hugh on the brain?)

Blue gene babies

This daddy/daughter duo demonstrates that gender doesn’t sway the similarities when it comes to genes. Daddy and daughter share the same beautiful blue eyes, curved eye brows and cheeky expression.
