I knew I was becoming an old fossil when my favorite actors and musicians from the '90s and '00s starting having kids of their own. It's kind of like when your Facebook is suddenly full of pregnancy and engagement announcements. Many of us grew up watching and looking up to iconic '90s and '00s stars, and these days it can feel like almost all of them have birthed talented lookalike children. To celebrate this new generation, here are 14 '90s and '00s stars whose kids look just like them. After all, these kids are now helping keep the iconic eras alive.
While it might not seem fair that most of these kids have missed, or will probably skip over, having an awkward middle school phase, it's important to remember that they were born into fame and that's not always easy. Their lives might seem perfectly peachy keen, but they're still young people who are trying to find their place in the world. Being the lookalike kid of a '90s or '00s celeb may be a tough spot to be in at times, but they certainly have some pretty strong support (and genes) to help them along the way.
1. Reese Witherspoon & Ava Phillippe
It is almost terrifying how much these two look a like. Reese Witherspoon was surely cloned.
2. Lori Loughlin & Isabella & Olivia Jade Giannulli
I knew Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade was a lookalike, but then I realized that her other daughter, Isabella, looks exactly like Aunt Becky, too.
3. Will Smith & Jaden Smith
After co-starring in some films with his famous dad, Jaden has a very promising future as the next Will Smith.
4. Drew Barrymore & Frankie Kopelman
I mean, if they're going to do an E.T. reboot anytime soon, they found Gertie already.
5. Cindy Crawford & Kaia Gerber
6. Jessica Simpson & Maxi Drew
Both of Simpson's children look a lot like her — and they have the same poses down, too.
7. Christie Brinkley & Sailor Cook
And look at this photo. How are they not the same person?
8. Kim Basinger & Ireland Baldwin
Who wouldn't want to look exactly like their iconic '90s actor mom?
9. Madonna & Lourdes Leon
Lola is a spitting image of younger Madonna, who rocked darker hair and more unruly brows.
10. Pamela Anderson & Dylan Jagger Lee
11. Candace Cameron Bure & Natasha Bure
Natasha is on her way to becoming a star herself, as a singer, and sometimes their resemblance is uncanny.
12. Lisa Bonet & Zoë Kravitz
Zoë Kravitz was birthed from the most perfect gene pool, and she's got the perfect mix of both of her parents, though sometimes she's her momma's twin from her Cosby Show/A Different World days.
13. Kate Moss & Lila Grace

Lila Grace is like looking at an old photo of her mom.
