They say that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree and in the case of these beautiful celebrities and their mini-me children, they're absolutely right.

These lucky offspring have not just grown up in the lap of luxury with the freebies and advantages that their parent's status has bought them, but they are also fortunate enough to have also inherited their mothers' good looks.

While some are too young to take full advantage just yet, others have followed in their parent's footsteps, carving out a career for themselves in the public eye.

Here are our top picks for those who look got lucky in the gene pool of life.

Jennifer Lopez and Emme

It seems that Jenny from the block has a chip off the old block in her daughter Emme. The singer, dancer and actress, 52 is a mother of two - Emme Maribel and her fraternal twin Maximilian David - with former husband Marc Anthony. And now that Emme is a teenager (she turned 13 in February) she really looks up to her mum.

"My mom (sic) is just amazing," Emme told Entertainment Today last month. "She's such a powerful human being. It's insane. I don't even know how to explain it. There are so many adjectives that can describe her in so many good ways."


Cindy Crawford and Kaia

When your mum is one of the original supermodels, you know that people are going to look for comparisons and Kaia Gerber, 19, is used to it.

"From day one, people in the industry were often taken aback by my resemblance to my mom (sic)," she told Vogue. "It used to be that I didn’t see it at all, but now I will look at a picture and have to take a moment before realizing which one of us it is."

After a brief marriage to Richard Gere, Cindy settled down with former model Rande Gerber and they had two children Presley and Kaia, so it's hardly surprising that both kids also ended up modelling.

Jennifer Garner and Violet

From a very young age, Violet Affleck looked more like mum, actress Jennifer Garner, than dad Ben Affleck. In fact, apart from the blonde hair, there are times when Violet is the spitting image of her famous mum.

Even Jen noticed Violet was her mini-me but says personality-wise she is more like dad Ben. “Violet’s hyper-articulate — she is Ben Affleck’s daughter," she told the Hollywood Reporter recalling a time when she was at kindergarten and faced the paparazzi.

"She stood up on a chair in a little velvet dress, with her hair a bit back and her glasses on and she didn’t say her R’s right, and she said: ‘We didn’t ask for this. We don’t want these cameras, they’re scary. The men are scary, they knock each other over and it’s hard to feel like a kid when you’re being chased.’”

Reese Witherspoon and Ava

Actress Reese Witherspoon was relatively young in Hollywood terms when she and her husband Ryan Phillippe had their kids. Ava was born when Reese was just 23 and Deacon followed four years later.

While Reese and Ryan's marriage didn't last, she is proud of how her kids have grown into young adults.

"I never expected the kind of relationship that I have with them, but it's so rewarding to be able to have kids that you can process life with a little bit," Reese told Interview magazine. "I'm really, really grateful that these little humans are in my life. Adult humans. It's crazy."

Luckily she still has son Tennessee, eight, (with husband Jim Toth) at home for a little while longer.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Apple

With names like Apple Martin and Moses Martin, Gwyneth Paltrow's two children with singer/songwriter Chris Martin were always going to stand out from the crowd. And while she was particularly protective of them while they were young, her kids are allowing her to share a little more about them as they get older.

However, daughter Apple hasn't always looked up to her mother in the way that those of us who are not related to her do.

"My daughter likes my style now, which is great because there was a period of time where she thought I was a total loser," Gwyneth told People. Thank goodness Apple is not judging the rest of us!

Lisa Bonet and Zoë

Actress Lisa Bonet was starring in the show that catapulted her to fame, The Cosby Show as eldest daughter Denise Huxtable, when she eloped with relatively unknown (at the time) rocker Lenny Kravitz on her 20th birthday. The following year, when they were both still in their early twenties, she gave birth to their daughter Zoë Kravitz. The couple split in 1993 but remained committed to co-parenting.

"[My mom] always tells me I saved her life. She didn’t intend on being famous, but then she became this sensation, and she was so young and really private," Zoë told Rolling Stone. "So moving away, being with her child — she really responds well to stillness and privacy."

Snezana Wood and Eve

Single mum Snezana made an immediate impression on Bachelor Sam Wood when they met on the show in 2015 so most people were unsurprised when Sam chose Snez.

Since then, they have married and had two more children, daughters Willow and Charlie. While Eve, now 15, was just nine when her mum went on the show, she is thrilled to have Sam in hers and her mum's life.

"She's definitely my daughter," Sam told Who about his relationship with Eve just after Willow was born. "But we're also friends. I've been asked a lot 'what's the difference between Willow and Eve?' and the difference really is that Eve is 12 and Willow is four months."
