There’s nothing more special to a mother than her children. I think a big part of that is because mothers see so much of themselves in their kids.
My mother and I always get mistaken for being sisters, even though we have a 20-year age difference. One time we swapped faces on a mobile app and the image didn’t even change! Not all mother-daughters are like this, but there are many cases where you know a daughter is going to look just like their mother when they grow up. Sometimes they already do…
42-year-old actress Drew Barrymore gave birth to two girls, Olive and Frankie Barrymore Kopelman, in 2012 and 2014 respectively, but she hasn’t flaunted her children on social media like other famous celebrities.
We’ve known Drew since the early ’80s, where she starred in hit movies like E.T the Extra-Terrestrial, Firestarter, and Irreconcilable Differences. She was only six years old when she started acting, so we’re well aware of how the Santa Clarita Diet star looked in her younger years.
We’ve noticed Drew post photos of young girls on her Instagram page before, but we thought they were photos of her when she was a kid! Turns out those are some rare photos of her daughters, and we’re completely surprised by how similar Drew’s oldest daughter, Olive, looks to the famous actress!
For Thanksgiving and for Mother’s Day last year, Drew shared a heartfelt post about her love for her two daughters.
“The love of my life. Olive. Sunday. Thanksgiving weekend. I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday. This is a very special time. And may it bring out the best in all of us. And all the spirit of family and loved one,” she wrote in one post.
If that wasn’t Drew Barrymore kissing Olive, I would have thought that photo was the 50 First Dates actress as a baby.
These two are not the only celebrity mother-daughters who look alike! Reese Witherspoon and her daughter Ava Elizabeth Philippe, and Cindy Crawford and her daughter Kaia Gerber look nearly identical! Of course, these girls are much older than little Olive, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Drew’s oldest daughter grew up to look just like her. They’ve got the same face shape, big eyes, delicate nose, and bold lips.
We’ll update you in a decade!
