These Family Photos Look Identical, But They Were Actually Taken Years Apart

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Reddit / yessykeena

No matter how hard you might try, you can't escape genetics. And it's no surprise that many family members look ridiculously similar. But as you're about to see, sometimes the resemblance is so uncanny you'll think they're looking in a mirror. Take, for example, Reddit user Yessykeena who recreated the photo on the left of her mother holding her firstborn son (and Yessykeena’s older brother) 41 years ago to capture just how much she looks like her mother. It's uncanny! And she's not the only one...

The apple certainly doesn't fall far from the tree. As Clare Reed Rossetto shared this photo of her husband at age five on the right and their four-year-old daughter on the left. Same eyebrows? Check. Same eyes? Check. Same nose? Check? Same mouth and chin? Check and checkmate. There's no denying that they're related!

And Eleventh Generation Descendant Of Abraham Lincoln

Blogging Is Overrated

How amazing is this? Ralph C. Lincoln is an eleventh generation Lincoln who also shares the same great-grandfather as one of America’s greatest presidents. If you visit Fayette County in Pennsylvania, you will find a small, obscure cemetery where members of the Lincoln family are buried, including Abraham Lincoln’s great uncle Mordecai, who served in the revolutionary war, and his son Benjamin. Mordecai Lincoln is his fifth- generation great-grandfather, which makes him a third cousin of the President.

Boys Will Be Boys

People

Don't they look all dressed up and fancy and ready for a big event? What you're seeing isn't a couple pictures from the same event, but rather two men pose together at a wedding, left, and 30 years later both of their sons pictured together in the same pose on their way to a different wedding. I think it's safe to say that both inherited their father's good looks.

Daddy's Little Boy

Okay, this is getting a little bit freaky now because it totally looks like the same father and son. But it's not, obviously, because that would be too easy. Instead the man on the right recreated and old photo of his dad holding him in 1983, and then showed him holding his son 2014. All that's really missing is the glasses to make it complete!

Lady In Red

Christine McConnell

Like most daughters, Christine McConnell grew up being told how much she and her mother look alike. When Christine turned 32, she received her mother’s red dress and relived the photograph that her mom took when she was 32. As you can see, the results are kind of amazing. My only question is, "Is that the same chair, too?"
