Sometimes we wonder if Instagram throwbacks of young parents are just humblebrags of whose parents used to be super hot, and that's double true when it comes to parents of celebrities. Like we all do it, but celebrities typically have more of a right to brag; they gotta get their good looks from somewhere. Ok, somewhere besides plastic surgery. We believe in good genes, but we're also realists. But every once and a while we'll stumble upon a #TBT of someone like the Sprouse twins' father Matthew Sprouse or Anna Faris' bleach blonde mom Karen and we can't deal with how much they look like their famous kids.
Sometimes it's easier to see the resemblance because a famous kid followed in their Hollywood parents' footsteps. There are so many Hollywood families that have a shared love of acting, creating near identical mother-daughter pairings like Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow, or would've been identical if the dad wasn't a trillion years old pairings like Clint and Scott Eastwood. Or sometimes there are families that stay in the business of being beautiful. Yolanda Hadid was a swimsuit model before her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills days, and she gave birth to three model babies, Anwar, Bella, and Gigi Hadid. But it's only Gigi that truly shares her face (and her bikini bod).
Other times, celebrities just happen to have normal, attractive moms and dads who they bear a spitting resemblance too. And that is also fine. Whatever the case may be, we rounded up a handful of throwback shots of celebs' parents when they were younger to see who could pass for their famous kid's doppelgangers back in the day.

When Selena shared this comparison on Instagram, our jaws dropped. "Werk momma #igetitfrommymomma," she captioned. And seriously, it looks like the "Bad Liar" singer stole her mother's face!
