Blessed with amazing genes, many moms pass their DNA to their children who become spitting images of them. We see this the most with daughters who look like mini versions of their mothers when they’re little.

It’s amazing to see the resemblance when these kids grow up, and in some cases, it seems like the mothers are ageless. Youth is retained as time passes (or is suspended) and you can’t really tell the difference between a mama and her babies.

You’ve seen it with some celeb moms like Reese Witherspoon, Lisa Bonet, or Demi Moore. Where did the time go? Down below is a list from around the world of moms and their daughters who could pass as sisters. Sisters, I tell ya! You’ll be wondering what the secret is for some of these women who don’t look a day over 25.

    If you’re stumped by these two beauties, don’t feel ashamed. Squinting won’t help you discern which is the mom and which is the daughter. We’ll help: mom Ebony is on the right with the curls.

We know that ageless and lookalike wonders aren’t just limited to moms and daughters. There are fathers and sons, moms and sons, and dads and daughters. These folks really walk among us.

Some of you can probably relate to these families and have your own “I still get carded” stories to share. People mistake your children for your siblings or your significant others. It’s weird but take it as a compliment!

What do you think of these mother-daughter photos? Are you a mom who looks young enough to be your child’s sister? Have you ever entered a contest and thrown people for a loop?
