Did you inherit your grandmother’s tiny ears or swooped nose? Maybe you have the same curly hair or eye color as your grandfather. There’s even a chance you look exactly like your aunt, uncle, cousin, or a long, lost relative. Thanks to the magical science of genes, people who are related to each other can share the same characteristics when it comes to their appearance, even if they come from different generations. This, of course, goes for both regular relatives and famous families.
Granted, most of us know that Ava Phillippe could be a clone of her mother, Reese Witherspoon, and, as Time magazine points out, "There’s no denying how much [Zoe] Kravitz looks like her mother," Lisa Bonet. Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber, Angelina Jolie and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise … we could go on and on! But the similarities aren’t just passed down from parents to children. Sometimes grandchildren end up twinning with their grandparents.
From silver screen legends who passed on their distinctive attributes to music industry icons whose appearance you’ll recognize in their younger relatives, as well as one actress-turned-princess whose granddaughter inherited her glamour (although not the title), check out these grandchildren who look just like their legendary grandparents.
Elvis Presley’s grandson shared an ‘uncanny’ resemblance with the King
Elvis wasn’t only the King of Rock and Roll, he was also the father of Lisa Marie Presley. Although the singer’s daughter didn’t have children until after he passed away in 1977, she had four kids, Danielle and Benjamin Keough (whom she had with her first husband, Danny Keough), as well as twins Finley and Harper Lockwood (whom she shares with her fourth husband, Michael Lockwood). While Lisa Marie told CMT that her children have "all got a little bit of [Elvis] in them," it’s Benjamin who’s the "spitting image of his famous grandfather," according to Newsweek.
Born in 1992, Benjamin had an unruly mop of hair – a stark difference to Elvis’ slicked-back style. Looking at photos, you can definitely tell they’re related, as the millennial had the same enchanting eyes, fine facial features, and sultry expression — just like his grandfather. This is why Lisa Marie admitted to CMT, "Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at him." His mom added that when it comes to the resemblance, "It is just uncanny."
Heartbreakingly enough, on July 12th, 2020, tragedy struck when Benjamin was found dead at the age of 27 "from apparent suicide" (via TMZ). As Lisa’s manager, Roger Widynowski, told the outlet, "She is completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley. She adored that boy. He was the love of her life."
If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or text HOME to the Crisis Text Line at 741741.
Elizabeth Taylor’s grandson is carrying on her looks and legacy
Screen legend Elizabeth Taylor was an "amazing, rowdy, badass, passionate pioneer, actress, activist, philanthropist, grandma," according to her grandson, Quinn Tivey. The son of Taylor’s daughter, Liza Todd, and her husband, artist Hap Tivey, Quinn was obviously fond of his grandmother, describing her as "an amazing matriarch," according to The Morning Show. "I always knew her as grandma, but in her real life, she was still larger than life."
While Quinn is carrying on Taylor’s looks, with his dark crown of hair, dramatic brows, fair complexion, and striking eyes (although they’re not quite violet in the way that her’s famously were), he’s also carrying on her legacy in another way. The artist, who is based in New York, took on a new role in 2016 when he became the co-trustee for his grandmother’s trust, which is behind the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. While speaking about the star’s work with the organization, which she started in 1991, he explained, "She could not stand to see social injustice or unfairness around her … But she knew she had the capacity to do a lot. She had a platform by virtue of her celebrity, and she knew how to use it."
Adding that she "always had the courage to speak her mind and stand up for what she believed in," Quinn clearly admired his grandmother, which is a feeling that the next grandchild on this list can relate to.
Kirk Douglas’ grandson is a ‘ripped and tatted version’ of the legend
Michael Douglas’ son, Cameron Douglas, may not have looked like his legendary grandpa when he was younger, but after spending seven years in prison for drug-related charges, the younger Douglas came out looking like "a ripped and tatted version of Kirk Douglas," according to the Los Angeles Times. While Cameron obviously mirrors his late grandfather’s appearance, which boasts both (an at times) brooding expression and signature smirk, there was much more between these two than just a passing resemblance.
"He believed in me even when maybe I had given up on myself," Cameron told The Hollywood Reporter, while opening up about their relationship following his grandfather’s passing in February 2020. "He was always there, always supportive … He made sure I knew that."
That special bond is something that Cameron wanted to foster between his beloved grandfather and his own child, Lua Izzy Douglas, who was named after Kirk (the star was born Issur and was known as Izzy). "My daughter is a little over 2 years old now, and they spent a lot of time together over the past year and a half," Cameron said at the time. "He would light up every time she was around … I’ll remind her of that when she gets older, showing her that connection through photos. It’s pretty special." Sadly, that’s the kind of relationship that the next pair never got to experience.
Grace Kelly’s granddaughter has her family’s glamorous nature
You might not recognize Camille Gottlieb’s name, and that’s because she holds an interesting place within the royal family of Monaco. The granddaughter of Grace Kelly, an actress who left Hollywood behind to become a princess when she married Prince Rainier III in 1956, Camille (born after her grandmother’s death) is the offspring of Kelly’s youngest daughter, Princess Stephanie of Monaco. While you might think that would make Camille a princess, her father was a palace guard who wasn’t married to her mother, which is why Camille doesn’t have a claim to Monaco’s throne, according to Harper’s Bazaar.
Despite that, Camille is still clearly one member of the family who shares her late grandmother’s sophisticated looks. Living a rather fabulous life in Monte Carlo and abroad, she’s often lounging around on the beach or spending time in the snowy mountains. When she travels, it’s to fabulous events like Paris Fashion Week, where she’s sure to stop for the cameras and show off the photogenic features she got from her grandma.
However, as Camille gets older, she may be growing up to look like someone else. "Even though it has been said that Camille Gottlieb inherited Grace Kelly’s beauty … the young Monaco royal looks more and more like her mom, Stephanie of Monaco, each day," Hola! notes. Frankly, this young woman, who clearly knows how to pose, may end up inheriting some attributes from both women while still managing to look completely like herself.
Paul McCartney’s grandson has the singer’s cool vibe
Former member of The Beatles and music industry mainstay Paul McCartney is the proud grandpa (or, rather, "granddude") of eight grandchildren, including the oldest of the bunch, Arthur Donald. The son of the singer’s daughter, Mary McCartney, and television producer Alistair Donald, Arthur may not be following in his grandfather’s footsteps career-wise — instead, he’s getting an Ivy League education at Yale University — but he is carrying on the star’s casually cool vibe. That became obvious in 2018 when the pair were spotted hanging out together in London. As the two strolled side-by-side, both wearing a T-shirt, slacks, and running shoes while each tucking a hand in their pocket, it was easy to see the similarities between them.
Arthur also stirred up headlines that same year when he spent a night on the town with someone very different but just as intriguing: Reese Witherspoon’s daughter, Ava Phillipe. "Ava seemed pretty smitten with the dude, and we can’t blame her … Arthur’s kind of a stud with Beatles-esque charm flowing through his veins," TMZ noted and, honestly, it’s hard to argue with the fact that this kid (who’s now a young adult) is just as cool as his grandfather.
This is something that could also be said about the next celebrity relative and her adorably quirky grandmother.
Goldie Hawn’s granddaughter is just as quirky as the star
Hollywood superstar Goldie Hawn seems to love her family even more than she loves to dance — and if you’ve seen her epic moves on social media, then you know that’s saying a lot. The actress is the mother to three children and the grandmother to six grandkids, including her mini-me, little Rio. The daughter of Hawn’s son, Splitting Up Together star Oliver Hudson, and his wife, actress Erinn Bartlett, Rio not only shares her grandma’s blonde hair, sweet smile, and adorable features, they also apparently have the same free-spirited nature. Just take a peek at her enjoying a snack with her feet flung up in the air (pictured above), something that we could totally see her grandma doing if she was so inclined. Even Hawn called the young one a "chip off the old block."
The fact that they’re basically the same person is likely why the pair obviously enjoy each other’s company. Hawn was sure to show up to Rio’s preschool graduation day in 2017, where the duo was twinning in matching flower crowns. And the actress even brought Rio to an event in November 2019, posting a photo of the two on Instagram along with a caption saying that she "couldn’t have picked a better date." We’re sure Rio agrees!
Gregory Peck’s grandson is doing his ‘own thing’
You may have gotten to know Ethan Peck as Patrick Verona from the 10 Things I Hate About You series or you might be used to seeing him as Spock on Star Trek: Discovery, but did you know that his grandfather was one of the most respected actors of all time? That’s right, Ethan’s father is former industry figure Stephen Peck, the son of the late Gregory Peck. "A popular movie hero who skillfully projected courage, wholesomeness, and vulnerability in a wide range of films," according to The New York Times, he’s remembered for his roles in To Kill a Mockingbird, Roman Holiday, and many more beloved films.
"We share the name. But it feels like my own," Ethan told the New York Post in 2016. Mentioning that he got to know his grandfather at the end of the screen legend’s life, he explained, "He was Grandpa — and also an icon. It’s still hard for me to fathom the level at which he was appreciated on an international scale."
Ethan backed up that stance during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, saying that feels like he’s doing "own thing" when it comes to his career. However, ET points out that "there’s no denying the leading man qualities the two share." And that includes physical qualities. With his tendency to grow a slight, scruffy beard, Ethan seems like an edgier version of Gregory, who was classically handsome in a sophisticated way.
Debbie Reynolds’ granddaughter is following in her family’s footsteps
The daughter of the late Carrie Fisher, who you’ll surely know as Star Wars‘ Princess Leia, and granddaughter of longtime star Debbie Reynolds, who has also passed away, Billie Lourd is making her own way in Hollywood with roles on shows like Scream Queens and American Horror Story, as well as movies such as Booksmart and (naturally) both Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi and Star Wars: Episode IX — The Rise of Skywalker.
While sitting down for an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2017, Lourd, who resembles her grandmother in her younger days thanks to her naturally blonde hair and features that would suit Hollywood’s classic era, not only referred to both Fisher and Reynolds as "goddesses," she also opened up about losing her grandmother on December 28, 2016, just one day after her mother’s passing. "There’s no way to really explain it," Lourd admitted. "It’s so hard to talk about … If I say that I’m doing good, I’m too happy. And if I say that I’m not doing good, then I’m a mess. So it’s really hard to know what to say about it, because it is just so surreal and impossible to deal with."
While the pain around losing both women will hopefully fade in time, one thing that will remain is the fact that Lourd will likely always see hints of her grandmother in her own face when she looks in the mirror.
Steve McQueen’s grandson shares his name and his looks
Steve McQueen was an antihero star in the ’60s and ’70s thanks to roles in films like The Cincinnati Kid, Bullitt, and The Magnificent Seven. Steven R. McQueen (note the formal first name and middle initial) is also an actor who you may have seen in shows like Everwood, Chicago Fire, and The Vampire Diaries. The second McQueen also happens to be the grandson of the first (and the son of The Karate Kid actor Chad Steven McQueen), which is pretty obvious when you compare the pair’s similar features, such as their jawlines, noses, and light brown hair. As for Steven’s name, he told Vanity Fair in 2011, "Luckily, I’ve got a generation gap between me and him. But more than anything it’s a little fuel in the fire."
However, the McQueens’ name, appearance, and occupation is where the parallels end. Steven explained that when he was younger, he "watched [his] grandfather’s projects with admiration and looked up to him," but added that "at the end of the day you have to be true to what’s inside." That’s why he’s opted to take on dark roles like The Vampire Diaries‘ Jeremy Gilbert, who Steven says "was as messed up as possible in the head." Hopefully, Steven shares more characteristics with his grandfather than he does with his former character.
Blythe Danner’s granddaughter proves the family roots run deep
Apple Martin became famous the moment her parents, actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay singer Chris Martin, announced that they had named her after fruit. However, as she’s gotten older, she’s made headlines because she not only looks like her mom, she also looks like her grandmother, actress Blythe Danner. Just take a look at Apple’s eyes, her nose, her cheekbones, the shape of her face, her hair … every feature confirms her lineage. And considering the fact that she’s still just a teen, Apple will likely look even more like the other women in her family as she gets older.
Their resemblance was even pointed out by journalist Derek Blasberg in September 2019, when he shared a picture of the trio on Instagram and wrote, "Today is the [Paltrow]’s birthday, but let’s celebrate the entire Danner-Paltrow-Martin bloodline. Here are three kind, talented, sweet, lithe (rhymes with Blythe!), wonderful women. The apple doesn’t fall from the tree — and neither does Apple." Too true.
As for any other ways that she follows in her family’s footsteps? Well, we’ll just have to wait a little longer to see if Apple’s interested in pursuing a career in the acting business like her mother and grandmother or the music industry like her father. For now, she works in a retail clothing store like a normal teenager who just happens to look like her iconic grandmother.
Ernest Hemingway’s great-granddaughter went to a school named after him
Thanks to her highly-recognizable last name, you probably guessed that Dree Hemingway is the great-granddaughter of Nobel Prize-winning writer Ernest Hemingway, who famously penned 1929’s A Farewell to Arms and 1940’s For Whom the Bell Tolls, among other notable works. Dree, a model and actress who looks so much like the man who came before her that she could have been his twin sister, revealed that it took her some time to embrace the importance of the relative she hasn’t always felt connected to.
When asked if she reads Ernest’s work, the former student of Ernest Hemingway Elementary School (seriously) told Elle in 2015, "I studied it in school but I was really not into it." Despite that, Dree said that as she’s gotten older, she’s been willing to acknowledge her "family roots" (deeming herself "less of a child brat!"). Because of that, she explained she’s now "honored" to be Ernest’s granddaughter.
"He’s incredible and I get it," Dree said. And while she admitted that she "can’t tell you anything new about Ernest Hemingway" because she "[didn’t] know him," she has "read a lot of biographies on him." That’s what made her feel like they’re "definitely … from the same family." Dree might have been able to get the same feeling just by looking at a picture of her great-grandfather and comparing his face to her own.
Tippi Hedren’s granddaughter ‘comes from Hollywood royalty’
Stella Banderas "comes from Hollywood royalty," according to Hola!. That seems like an undeniable fact when you find out that her father is actor Antonio Banderas and her mother is actress Melanie Griffith. However, that’s not where her Hollywood lineage ends. Not only is her half-sister 50 Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson, but Stella’s grandmother (Griffith’s mother) is Tippi Hedren, the actress who starred in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1963 horror film, The Birds. Although Stella certainly shows off her Banderas roots when she embraces her dark hair, her resemblance to Hedren shows through when the younger woman dyes her hair the same golden blonde that her grandmother is known for.
Along with her looks, Stella, who’s "incredibly down to earth" and "loves her family" (which is clear from the Instagram posts that she sweetly shares of her "fam"), apparently also picked up the acting bug from her famous grandmother. Or perhaps a love of the business was passed down from her mother, who also shares her interest "in fashion as well as outside hobbies," per Hola!. Like mother, like daughter … like grandmother.
Audrey Hepburn’s granddaughter ‘used to struggle’ with comparisons
Audrey Hepburn is an actress that you surely love to watch in any one of her treasured films like 1961’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s or 1953’s Roman Holiday (in which she starred with Gregory Peck, another Hollywood legend on this list). However, unless you’re familiar with her personal life, you might not have known that, in 1954, she married actor Mel Ferrer. The two had a son together, Sean Hepburn Ferrer, who is the father of Audrey’s granddaughter, Emma Ferrer.
An "actress, an advocate for children’s rights, a visual artist/poet, and an art curator/liaison," according to the biography on her professional website, Emma may be able to mimic her grandmother’s elegant appearance (just take a peek at her classically chic photo in Harper’s Bazaar), but she also strikes out with her own personal style (yes, that’s her with a shaved head at the top of an InStyle piece).
Emma admitted in that same InStyle profile, "I used to struggle a lot with people wondering whether I looked like her or dressed like her." However, the star’s granddaughter added, "It’s been eye-opening for me to realize I can choose the way that I want to carry on her legacy … and at the same time follow my own path." Thanks to that effort, Emma feels like her grandmother would "be proud." As rough as it sounds, we might not be able to say the same thing about the next pair.
Lucille Ball’s great-granddaughter has Lucy’s looks and Desi’s coloring
Lucille Ball, who passed away in 1989, was a beloved television star alongside her onscreen and real-life husband, Desi Arnaz. The I Love Lucy duo were parents to Desi Arnaz Jr., who was, in turn, the father of Julia Howe, who is the mother of the late Desiree Anzalone (did you follow that?). Sadly, Anzalone passed away in September 2020 after a battle with breast cancer. Presumably named after her grandfather or famous great-grandfather, Anzalone shared more than just a moniker with her famous relatives. She also happened to look like her great-grandmother.
While you might think that sharing Ball’s beauty would have given Anzalone a ticket to an easy ride through life, she actually endured "abandonment as a child," a "self-destructive youth," and stage 2 breast cancer, per Model Citizen Magazine. Overcoming each obstacle, Anzalone became a photographer and someone who was willing to acknowledge the positive side of those who came before her. In April 2019, when an Instagram user complimented Ball, Anzalone responded by writing, "She was pretty great wasn’t she!"
Anzalone, who inherited Ball’s features with the dark Arnaz hair (and would look shockingly like her great-grandmother if she had the same shade of that famous red hair), also addressed the comparisons between her appearance and that of her great-grandmother while taking on trolls who questioned the similarity of their looks. "These comments are so ridiculous, and sad, like calm down people," Anzalone simply wrote. Fair enough.
Marlon Brando’s grandson inherited his looks (if nothing else)
Marlon Brando‘s grandson, Tuki Brando, may not be as famous as the late actor who played none other than Don Vito Corleone in The Godfather, but "there’s no concealing the brooding good looks that Tuki inherited from his grandfather," according to The Telegraph. However, that’s apparently all he inherited from Marlon.
Not only did Tuki grow up "in more tragic circumstances than most" due to the fact that when his mother, Cheyenne Brando (Marlon’s daughter), was pregnant with him, his uncle and Cheyenne’s brother, Christian Brando, shot and killed Tuki’s father, Dag Drollet. Tuki then lost his mother five years later when she died by suicide at just 25 years old. Tuki was only four at the time and went to live with his maternal grandmother in Tahiti. However, the younger Brando still had more to deal with in the years to come. When Tuki was 13, Marlon passed away "and Tuki was omitted from his will," even though "the actor left something to friends and other actors," Vogue notes, saying that proves "how cold that relationship was."
Fortunately, Tuki’s good looks have helped him establish a career of his own as a model who’s landed campaigns with brands like TechnoMarine timepieces and even Versace, while also walking the runway for Dolce & Gabbana. Let’s hope that his success means that he can put his sad past behind him and embrace everything that’s ahead.
Donald Sutherland’s granddaughter played Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ daughter
The daughter of actor Kiefer Sutherland and granddaughter of star Donald Sutherland, Sarah Sutherland not only shares similarities with her grandpa, but she’s also another kid from a Hollywood family that followed her elders into show business. If you were a fan of HBO’s Veep, then you’ll know that she played Catherine, the daughter of Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ character, Selina Meyer.
Despite both Sarah’s dad and grandpa being in the business, and the fact that she shares the same smile, nose, and face shape with the younger version of her grandpa, she hasn’t relied on family connections to help her succeed. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. Kiefer admitted during an interview with Live with Kelly and Ryan that he doesn’t even know the name of his daughter’s agent. Beyond that, when he really needed to find a young actress for one or two of his projects, she "respectfully declined because she didn’t want the association."
Sarah backed that up while talking to The Cut. "I was very adamant that I wanted to arrive at navigating the industry in my own right without help from them," she said, apparently referring to both her dad and grandfather. The next actress is also someone you might not have known was the granddaughter of a popular performer until you find out her famous name.
Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter appeared on Game of Thrones
Charlie Chaplin was one of the most famous faces during Hollywood’s silent era. He was also the father of 11 children, including eight with his fourth wife, Oona O’Neill. One of those kids was Geraldine Chaplin, the mother of Oona Chaplin, who was obviously named after her grandma. But when it comes to her looks, Oona has the same features as her grandpa. The only thing that could make them appear more alike is if she were to wear Charlie’s signature outfit.
Despite their shared appearance, Oona told the Independent, "When people say ‘Charlie Chaplin’ I still think now of the guy in the mustache and bowler hat and funny walk — I don’t think of an old man who was my grandfather." Explaining that she never met him, she admitted, "There are moments, even now, when I sort of go ‘Whoa … my blood has some of that in it?’ It’s amazing, but it kind of freaks me out sometimes."
What doesn’t freak her out is using the talent that likely came from her grandfather. Another actress, Oona’s appeared in The Longest Ride, Quantum of Solace, and popped up on Game of Thrones as Talisa Stark. She’s also been cast to star in James Cameron’s Avatar sequels. While she won’t be able to show off the features she got from her grandpa in the animated franchise, it will still be cool to know that a Chaplin is part of the project.
Jane Fonda’s granddaughter shares her features and her activism
Beyond being a famous actress, Jane Fonda is also a somewhat controversial figure due to her habit of taking a strong stance on certain issues. That’s something that she’s passed down to her granddaughter, Viva Vadim. The child of Fonda’s daughter, Vanessa Vadim, Viva shares Fonda’s slight smile, delicate nose, and even has the darker version of her grandma’s bright eyes.
Young Viva also shares Fonda’s activist ways and willingness to face legal repercussions when it comes to standing up for what they believe in. "With my granddaughter Viva Vadim who got arrested with 38 others today," the legendary actress captioned an Instagram photo of herself and her granddaughter that was taken during one of the star’s Fire Drill Friday climate change protests in November 2019. Fonda obviously understands that passing down your looks is one thing — but passing down a passion for saving the planet is much more meaningful.
John Barrymore’s granddaughter comes from an ‘acting dynasty’
Drew Barrymore may be known as a modern star who’s appeared in quirky films like The Wedding Singer, Never Been Kissed, and Charlie’s Angels (not to mention her Netflix zombie series Santa Clarita Diet), but she happens to come from an "acting dynasty" that stretches back for 400 years and included her grandfather, John Barrymore. "Drew’s lineage of entertainers dates back to the 18th century — at least 7 generations — beginning in Europe," according to Biography.
The actress talked about her grandfather — who seems to have passed down his eyes, nose, and even his chin (though not the dimple) to Drew — during an appearance at the 2011 TCM Film Festival. "He is the one — for whatever reason we gravitate towards who we do — that I felt the deepest connection to," she said. Drew also recalled how, as a child, she tried to form a bond with the man who passed away in 1942, years before she was born in 1975. "It’s funny, ’cause when I was a kid, I used to always think that he was the moon, and that was the way that I could always find him and I could always talk to him," the actress said, adding, "I always felt he was nearby." Perhaps that’s because she saw hints of him every time she looked in a mirror.
Anne Gwynne’s grandson followed her footsteps into the world of sci-fi
Thanks to roles including Captain James T. Kirk in 2009’s Star Trek, Steve Trevor in 2017’s Wonder Woman, and Mr. Murry from Ava DuVernay’s 2018 film A Wrinkle in Time, Chris Pine has established himself as an actor who’s willing to play characters who exist in wondrous worlds. That stardom in sci-fi was something that his grandmother, Anne Gwynne, also enjoyed.
Gwynne appeared in sci-fi serials, such as Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe — foreshadowing her grandson’s foray into the realm of superheroes — as well as westerns and musical comedies. Beyond that, according to the Los Angeles Times, the actress was "a horror icon at Universal in the 1940s" and can be seen in over 40 films, such as freaky classics like 1940’s Black Friday, 1941’s The Black Cat, and perhaps most notably, 1944’s House of Frankenstein.
All that said, Pine is forging his own path in the business these days — including deviating from the kind of character his father, Robert Pine, played as Sgt. Joseph Getraer on CHiPs in the late ’70s and early ’80s. But the man who’s become one of Hollywood’s beloved Chrises could have starred alongside his grandmother in black-and-white films thanks to the fact that he shares her simply striking features. However, then we would have missed out on the actor’s beautiful baby blue eyes, and that would surely be a shame.
Ringo Starr’s granddaughter is also a musician
Ringo Starr may be known as a former member of The Beatles, but to his friends, he’s likely known by his real name, Richard Starkey — and to his seven grandchildren, he’s surely known as Grandpa. That sizable brood includes Tatia Starkey, the daughter of Starr’s son, Zak Starkey, a "sometime drummer for The Who and Oasis," according to the Daily Mail. Another member of a famous rock family, Starr’s granddaughter is also a musician.
When Tatia, who’s also known as Veronica Avant, is on stage, she apparently "[crashes] out the guitar chords like a born rocker," which, of course, thanks to her lineage, is "exactly what Tatia Starkey is." If you paused for a moment when you read guitar, then you noticed that the younger musician isn’t a drummer like her dad and grandfather, but instead opted to play bass and guitar. The decision to play different instruments came "after seeing her father’s drumming forever compared unfavorably to her grandfather’s." And while she didn’t necessarily inherit their passion for percussion, she did get her grandfather’s dark hair and oval face.
Tatia may have also passed those features down to her own little one. Thanks to the bass player, Starr "welcomed his first great-grandchild at the age of 76" in 2016, according to Hello! magazine. The arrival of Tatia’s son, Stone Zakomo Low, with partner Adam Low, made the drummer "the first Beatle to become a great-grandfather."
Mick Jagger’s granddaughter has her grandpa’s cheekbones
The daughter of Mick Jagger’s daughter, Jade Jagger, and artist Piers Jackson, is Amba Isis Jackson. Her "grandfather is a rock star and [her] mummy something of a party girl," the Daily Mail explains. "So if … Amba Jackson ever wanted to rebel against the family tradition, she’d have to enroll in a nunnery or become an accountant." While she may not have opted for a life of saying prayers or doing taxes, she also hasn’t followed her grandpa into the music business. However, Amba is another grandchild of a famous figure who inherited her family’s features — specifically her grandpa’s coloring and cheekbones — and is also now a parent themselves, making the Rolling Stones singer a great-grandfather.
Amba, who claimed that she was ready to settle down when she was just 16, gave birth to a baby boy in October 2019. The then-23-year-old took to Instagram to post a photo of herself and the little one, whose name is River, along with the caption, "Look what I made." Following her son’s arrival, Amba opened up about the fact that "she nearly lost her baby when she went into labor just 26 weeks into her pregnancy." Despite the scary circumstances, Amba shared, "We got lucky … This was a [life-changing] experience for us both … River is now [three] months old, healthy, happy, and very fat!" Maybe when River gets older, he’ll also end up looking like Mick.
Steven Tyler’s granddaughter inherited his famous mouth
Aerosmith icon Steven Tyler is another rock star who is also a family man. As the father of three daughters, Liv Tyler, Mia Tyler, and Chelsea Tyler Foster, he’s also the grandfather to five grandchildren: Mia’s son, Axton Joseph, Chelsea’s baby boy, Vincent Frank, and Liv’s little ones, Milo William, Sailor Gene, and Lula Rose. And from the looks of Steven’s Instagram posts, he’s one grandpa who shows up for the special moments in the lives of his kids and grandkids.
"The really young ones, like Mia’s son Ax, don’t know me yet," the singer told People in 2018, while discussing his relationships with his grandchildren — and also revealing that the brood calls him Papa Stevie. "When they get a little older and know me, see me on TV, I think things will change. That’s so amazing when that happens." He added that they "start looking at [him differently]" after seeing him in "the ‘Janie’s Got a Gun’ video, or ‘Dude (Looks Like a Lady),’ or some ‘Sweet Emotion.’"
No doubt! When that happens, little Lula Rose may also notice that she shares a distinctive resemblance to her Papa. Despite having golden, curly hair while Steven has a darker mane, Lula, who’s still a toddler, seems to have inherited her grandpa’s mouth, which marks her as an unmistakable member of her family. As the grandpa and granddaughter continue to spend sweet time together, we’ll likely notice that resemblance strengthening along with their bond.
George H. W. Bush’s granddaughter perfectly resembles the late politician
There’s no doubt that Jenna Bush-Hager is a member of the Bush family. Not only does her name give her away, but so does the fact that she clearly looks like both her father, George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, and even more so like her grandpa, George H. W. Bush, the 41st U.S. President. What makes the fact that Jenna could be her grandpa’s twin sister even more fascinating is the fact that she herself has a twin, Barbara Bush (the younger one), who only slightly resembles the rest of the family.
A year after the former U.S. leader passed away on Nov. 30, 2018, the Today show co-host logged onto Instagram to share a collection of photos, including two that featured the grandfather and granddaughter together, proving that they shared a resemblance from the time she was a young child. "He is gone but he left behind a family that loves each other — we talked yesterday about how much we love him and each other," Jenna wrote in the caption. She continued by saying that he showed others "that serving with humility is the best way to serve and that living with kindness and generosity of spirit is the best way to live."
That’s a sentiment he apparently wanted to pass onto his grandchildren the same way that he passed down his blatant Bush genes.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ granddaughter is ‘turning heads’
The granddaughter of the late President John F. Kennedy and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Rose Kennedy Schlossberg (who was named for JFK’s mother, Rose Kennedy), is a member of the political family who is carrying on more than just the famous name.
Although Rose, who’s the daughter of U.S. ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and designer Ed Schlossberg, "[grew] up relatively out of the spotlight," as an adult she’s "been turning heads for her uncanny resemblance to her glamorous grandmother," according to Good Housekeeping. With dark hair like her grandmother, Rose often opts for a bobbed-style that almost mimics the shorter hairdos that Jackie O was famous for popularizing. Beyond that, Rose has the same eyes, smile, and facial-shape as her grandma, which simply can’t be ignored when you see her.
However, while Rose may look like the grandmother, who "was a regular presence in Rose’s life, right up until Jackie’s death in May 1994, when her granddaughter was 5," per the New York Post, she doesn’t have aspirations related to public service. Instead, People explains that "with the launch of her quirky comedy web series End Times Girls Club, Rose Kennedy Schlossberg is showing the world an entirely new face of the famous political dynasty." And in her unexpected role, Kennedy biographer C. David Heymann claims that "in many respects, she is the face and future of the clan." It’s certainly a familiar face.
Robert F. Kennedy’s grandson looks like a younger version of his late elder
Once again proving that the Kennedy genes are strong, Conor Kennedy looks just like a younger version of his grandpa, the late Robert F. Kennedy. Thanks to their eyes, their noses, and their matching chins, this grandfather and grandson could easily be brothers. However, if Conor looks familiar to you, it may be for a reason other than the family resemblance. The younger Kennedy found himself in the news in 2016 when he was arrested for disorderly conduct after being involved in a fight outside a nightclub. Conor’s father came to his defense, saying that "his son … had been protecting a friend who had been called a homophobic slur," according to The New York Times.
The Harvard attendee also made headlines in 2012 when he dated pop superstar Taylor Swift after she was "previously linked to Conor’s cousin Patrick Schwarzenegger." That was the same year that Conor’s mom, Mary Kennedy, sadly took her own life. Apparently, during the grief-filled time, the "Delicate" singer was "real shoulder to cry on" for Conor, according to a source, who also revealed that Swift was "really smitten" with the young Kennedy.
It seems like Conor’s life is filled with the same kind of glamorous highs and heartbreaking lows that the rest of his family has famously endured.
Queen Elizabeth’s great-granddaughter is the monarch’s ‘mini-me’
Despite still being a child, "it’s already clear who [Princess Charlotte, the daughter of Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton] takes after the most," according to Good Housekeeping. Who are they referring to? Charlotte’s great-grandmother, the Queen of England, of course. Mentioning the fact that "Queen Elizabeth II .. passed a thing or two down to her great-granddaughter, including her royal title," the outlet also notes that if you "put their childhood photos side-by-side … these two peas in a pod could pass for sisters."
While the publication calls the similarities between the two royals an "almost spooky family resemblance," others surely think that it’s pretty darn cute that these two are so alike. In fact, Charlotte not only looks like her great-grandmother the queen, but the young royal also shares a similar personality with the reigning monarch. From the signature waves that the queen and her great-granddaughter are known for (and the fact that Charlotte is apt to copy when she spots the queen sending a greeting) to the fierce way they both put their foot down (did you see Charlotte put the press in its place at younger brother Prince Louis’ christening?), it’s clear that the little princess is the monarch’s "mini-me," as Oprah magazine observes. And the public sees it as well, as one royal follower stated, "Princess Charlotte looks so much like the Queen. I love it."
Prince Philip’s grandson twins with the older duke
There are a few pairs of royals who share similar features, and that includes Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, and his grandfather, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. Not only do both royals hold the titles of princes and dukes, but they also pursued military careers and "have an uncanny royal resemblance," according to Elle.
If you compare photos of a young Philip and a modern Harry, it’s clear that the two have "the same piercing clear eyes, strong brow, slender nose, and thin lips," as Hello! magazine points out. In fact, the outlet noted, "Harry started showing a likeness to the Duke of Edinburgh from a very young age, when he was a teenager and shared the same mannerisms and expressions." They’ve even both sported beards for a time while serving in uniform (a scruffier facial look that the queen apparently only allows "when they are away in the armed forces or out in the wilds").
The similarities have helped form a bond between the two that was honored when Harry gave his son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, a last name that partially comes from Prince Philip’s side. "Mountbatten-Windsor has only been the family name of the royals since the 60s," The Guardian explained. "It is a legacy of the Duke of Edinburgh’s deep-rooted desire for his descendants to bear his family name." They also apparently bear his features, as well.
Tex Ritter’s grandson wants to ‘honor’ his famous family
Jason Ritter, who’s appeared on shows like Joan of Arcadia and Parenthood, is another show business pro who comes from "entertainment royalty," according to CMT. The son of late Three’s Company and 8 Simple Rules star, John Ritter, Jason is also the grandson of Tex Ritter, "one of the very first inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame" who "also holds the distinction of being the first artist to release a country album."
Known as the Singing Cowboy, the man who was born as Woodward Maurice Ritter earned the name Tex when he moved to New York to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, where his Texan accent set him apart. Appearing "in Western after Western — almost 50 of them between 1936 and 1945," per Legacy.com, Tex passed away in 1974 after suffering a heart attack.
Jason, who was born six years following his grandfather’s passing, inherited Tex’s features — ears, smile, jawline, and everything in between — and opened up about his famous family to CMT in 2005. "I have kind of just accepted the fact that people are going to compare me to my dad," he said. "No one has compared me to Tex, yet." Even so, Jason revealed that he "definitely [feels] a certain amount of pressure just to honor their talent and their abilities." He explained, "It does push me to want to be the best actor I can and really take it seriously."
Whoopi Goldberg’s granddaughter got her grandma’s eyes and smile
To Whoopi Goldberg’s fans, she’ll always be the sinfully sassy, singing nun from Sister Act — but to Amarah Skye, the actress is simply grandma. Or rather, the EGOT-earning performer goes by another familial moniker when she’s around her family’s younger generation. "My grandkids call me Granny, as [my daughter] called my mother," The View co-host told Good Morning America (via Good Housekeeping) in 2018. "[My grandkids] called her Emma, which was her first name. And I’m Granny because of my daughter … [my mother] was her Granny."
The daughter of Goldberg’s only child, Alexandrea Martin, Skye inherited her grandma’s eyes and smile, as well as her Granny’s cherubic cheeks. She also shares her grandmother’s birthday, plus her fondness for being in front of the camera. However, while her grandmother tends to opt for comedy, Skye likes to share photos of herself on Instagram. However, you can also spot shots of her grandmother with captions like, "I love this woman who makes everything possible for me and our family, a true legend," and images of Skye’s daughter, whom she welcomed into the world back in 2014.
Goldberg revealed to GMA that her great-granddaughter has her own unique name for the star: "Oopi, yeah, [she] can’t quite get out Whoopi. I will say, about a week ago, I went to pick her up from school and she said, ‘Hi, Oopi Goldberg.’" Too cute!
Walter Huston’s granddaughter got his Oscar-worthy qualities
Iconic actress Anjelica Huston’s grandfather, Walter Huston, was "a veteran of vaudeville, Broadway, and film," who also shared The Addams Family star’s dark and elegant looks, as well as her acting ability. He even won a best supporting actor Oscar for The Treasure of the Sierra Madre in 1949, while she won the best actress in a supporting role Oscar for Prizzi’s Honor in 1986.
Anjelica’s dad, John Huston, was also a performer and once opened up about Walter, saying "that his father’s occupation as an actor simply meant that he never saw him," according to Vulture. Anjelica claimed that fact applied to her father, as well: "Dad was away working to keep us all in food and clothes. It’s more than a mission — this is what your dad does first."
Recalling a time when she was present while her father was doing some press, she said that she remembers "the interviewer saying, ‘What is the most precious thing to you on earth?’ And he said, ‘My children.’" That apparently surprised her: "I thought, ‘Really?’" It seems as though looking alike and sharing a profession didn’t necessarily bring this family any closer in the end.
John Wayne’s grandson also likes action flicks
Brendan Wayne is another grandkid who inherited his family’s looks and went into the family business. While his grandfather, the legendary John Wayne, was famous for westerns, Brendan leans toward films that tend to have just as much action, but in a modern way. Thanks to his skills (and maybe his name?), he’s appeared in movies like Fast & Furious and Cowboys & Aliens, as well as on shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Sons of Anarchy, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
On top of that, "In The Mandalorian, the younger Wayne appears in episodes three through six as one of the doubles for the titular character," according to Fatherly. That’s "cool in a full-circle kind of way," the outlet notes, due to the fact that "George Lucas was inspired by [John Wayne’s film] The Searchers when he created Star Wars. The director even slid a few subtle references to the film into A New Hope." By landing a gig in The Mandalorian, John Wayne’s grandson is now a part of the franchise that his grandfather helped bring about.
But Brendan doesn’t just fit in with a spacey crowd. The younger performer may have a slightly thinner face, but shares features that are just like those seen in the face of the older actor. And with a light beard and suitable cowboy-like hat, we imagine he would have fit right in with the cast of one of his grandpa’s gunslinging stories.
Bob Dylan’s grandson understands why people compare them
Pablo Dylan, the son of Bob Dylan’s oldest child, Jesse Dylan, looks just like his grandfather. He even has the same moppy mane that Vogue described as boasting either "just a hint of unruly curls" or "a wild halo of floating curls." Either way, Bob’s hair was curly and so is Pablo’s dynamic ‘do.
As you might imagine — and as anyone who is familiar with Bob’s son, Jakob Dylan of The Wallflowers (who’s Pablo’s uncle) will already know — the beloved singer-songwriter became an icon in the ’60s and passed on his musical talent, as well as his looks, to his offspring. That’s why Pablo is another member of a famous family to follow in his elder’s footsteps. However, you might be surprised to find out that Pablo started out in rap and hip-hop before trying out the kind of folk-rock that made his grandfather a star.
Pablo opened up to GQ in 2011 about attempting to make his name in a business where his grandfather was both beloved and idolized, saying, "I understand why people compare the two of us but if the situation was any different, I don’t think we’d even be mentioned in the same sentence." Despite that, Pablo admitted that he still aims to be "the next Bob Dylan." He certainly looks the part.
Kris Jenner’s grandson has her bold style and attitude
Along with being the famous mother (and "momager") of six children, Kris Jenner is the grandmother of 10 grandchildren, the eldest being Kourtney Kardashian’s son, Mason Dash Disick. His birth was filmed for the family’s reality TV show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. And with a middle name that comes from the well-known last name — which was apparently a nickname used by Mason’s late grandfather, Robert Kardashian, according to Elle — it’s no wonder that Kris’ grandson is a chip off the ol’ block.
Along with inheriting his grandmother’s dark hair, dark eyes, and the shape of her face (the similarities are even more striking when you see a younger version of the reality star), Mason also got Kris’ snazzy style and her bold attitude. Just check out the $3,000 Versace coat she got him for his birthday, and the way he defied his parents on social media.
Surely, Mason’s brash actions make his grandma proud. Or rather, they would make "Lovey" proud. "They call me Lovey," Kris explained to People magazine (via Romper), adding, "At first I was Grandma, and all of a sudden I didn’t like the way that sounded, my mom had a friend called Lovey and I thought that was the cutest name." Honestly, it’s hard to imagine anyone thinking that Kris would be a normal grandmother, but Mason, a.k.a. her male mini-me, likely loves her by any name.
Martha Stewart’s granddaughter even had the star’s ‘exact same hairdo’ as a toddler
Meet Jude, who is clearly Martha Stewart’s granddaughter. The older child of Stewart’s daughter, Alexis, who also has a younger son named Truman, Jade is the spitting image of her famous grandmother. ABC News even noted that as a toddler, the "entertaining mogul’s oldest grandchild [had] her exact same hairdo," which is apparently a style that the star has been sporting since she was a child herself.
Unsurprisingly, the woman who’s famous for creating homey atmospheres that are ideal for making memories with loved ones seems to enjoy spending time with her own family. This, of course, includes the little ones who are getting bigger these days, as is clear from the photos that Stewart shares on Instagram. In August 2019, she popped up a pic of herself blowing out the candles on her birthday cake with her two grandchildren, and in March 2020, Stewart showed off the kids working away in her veggie patch. She also posted images of the trio "visiting Xi’an and the Valley of the warriors of the Qin Emperor" and riding bikes fitted with sleds on a frozen lake!
"It’s always fun seeing the wonder in my grandchildren’s eyes," Stewart wrote in a post on her blog for Mother’s Day in 2013. "Having Jude and Truman in my life is such a rewarding pleasure."
Clark Gable’s grandson was a television host before his untimely passing
Clark Gable was an Academy Award-winning actor who appeared in classic movies like 1934’s It Happened One Night, 1935’s Mutiny on the Bounty, and, surely his most famous film, 1939’s Gone With the Wind. His grandson, Clark Gable III, was also destined to go into showbusiness thanks to the fact that he had the same dark and handsome good looks that helped make the elder Gable a Hollywood icon. However, his grandson is someone you might have seen on television as opposed to the big screen as the host of Cheaters from 2012 to 2013.
Clark Gable III once opened up about his legendary grandfather to Access Hollywood, and admitted that even he could see similarities "to a certain extent." He explained, "The eyebrows maybe but I didn’t get the ears too much."
Sadly, the younger Gable passed away in February 2019 at the age of 30. A medical examiner found that the cause of his death was an accidental drug overdose, according to USA Today. With his passing, it became clear that there was estrangement behind the scenes with Clark Gable III and his father, who reportedly "refused to pay for his own son’s funeral or let him be buried in the Gable family plot," according to the Daily Mail. Sometimes real-life family drama is sadder than what we see in the movies.
Henry Fonda’s granddaughter mirrors him in many ways
We may not hear much about Bridget Fonda these days, but before she stepped back from the spotlight, she appeared in movies throughout the ’90s like The Godfather: Part III, Single White Female, Singles, Point of No Return, and Lake Placid. Her father, Peter Fonda, and aunt, Jane Fonda, are also Hollywood stars, as was her grandfather, Henry Fonda. Put aside a night to watch a handful of classic films like 1940’s Grapes of Wrath, 1957’s 12 Angry Men, and 1968’s Once Upon a Time in the West to see the elder Fonda in action, which surely inspired the younger generations of the family to go into show business, each forging their own path.
"Bridget Fonda isn’t so much a chip off the old block as a wary inheritor," The New York Times explained. "The subtlety in her acting, the way she achieves a lot by doing very little, suggests a family gift."
There’s also a family resemblance that was passed down from Henry to his children and grandchildren, which can be seen in Bridget. Henry’s eyes, his lips, his chin … every one of the star’s facial features seems to be mirrored in the face of his granddaughter. Although it’s unclear whether or not Bridget will return to the screen any time soon, her fans would surely love to see her familiar face sooner rather than later.
Priscilla Presley’s granddaughter is making her lookalike grandmother proud
Elvis Presley’s grandson, Benjamin Keough (the son of the king’s only child, Lisa Marie Presley), isn’t the only member of the family who inherited his relative’s distinctive features. The eldest of Lisa Marie Presley’s three daughters, Riley Keough, also happens to share more than just a passing resemblance to her grandmother, Priscilla Presley. Priscilla also happens to be fully supportive of her grandchild’s pursuits in show business, despite the fact that Riley has opted for acting over on the music side of the industry like her grandfather.
"Priscilla loves following Riley’s acting career, she’s so proud of her," an insider told Closer Weekly in February 2020. The famous grandmother’s pride was also obvious when she showed up with her daughter and granddaughter to the premiere of Mad Max: Fury Road in May 2015. Keough had a role in the flick as Capable, one of the women kept captive by the story’s villain, Immortan Joe. In the movie, Riley looked even more like her grandmother, since her character’s hair was a shade of red that is a lot like the crimson colors Presley often embraces these days.
Riley seems to be just as proud of her grandmother, calling her a "queen" on Instagram while sharing photos of her iconic elder that passed down both her looks and her love to her granddaughter.
Carmine Coppola’s grandson is related to a handful of Hollywood legends
The Coppola family is bigger than you might have known. Not only does it include patriarch Carmine Coppola, who was the Oscar-winning composer behind the music heard in The Godfather Part II, but also his son, Francis Ford Coppola, who is the owner of five Academy Awards as the director of films like The Godfather trilogy, Apocalypse Now, The Outsiders, and Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Francis’ daughter, Sofia Coppola, is also an Oscar-worthy director and can be thanked for movies like The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation, and Marie Antoinette.
But due to the fact that he changed his name before becoming famous, you might not have been aware that Nicholas Cage was born as Nicholas Coppola, and is a member of the famous family — as is actor Jason Schwartzman, the son of Rocky actress Talia Shire, who you’ve likely seen in movies like Rushmore and The Darjeeling Limited.
Although The Guardian claims that Schwartzman looks like the "hybrid love child of Cher, Anthony Kiedis, and Steve Carell," the actor can actually thank his grandfather for his features. Both fellows shared the same nose, chin, and even bold eyebrows, although the actor has a heck of a lot more hair than Carmine did as an older man. However, if Schwartman ends up losing some of his luscious locks down the road, he may end up looking even more like his grandfather.
Joan Rivers’ grandson looks like the star during her early days
Joan Rivers was not only famous for her comedic skills and hot takes on celebrity style, she was also known as a devoted mother to her daughter, Melissa Rivers. Melissa, who often appeared alongside her mom on camera, is herself a mother to Edgar Cooper Endicott. Fans may remember him from the stars’ reality TV show, Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? The series followed the well-known family around during their daily lives, and according to Heavy, "Cooper [was] always polite, well-behaved, and sweet on camera." On top of that, he "seemed to be very close with Melissa and Joan."
While Endicott may not resemble the Joan you remember from her final days before her death on Sept. 4, 2014, at the age of 81, he instead looks like a younger version of the star (before her features changed over the years due to plastic surgery). Endicott has the very same smile, the same nose, and the same facial shape as his grandma, although his eyes are much lighter than Joan’s dark peepers were. And while he obviously inherited his grandmother’s appearance, he got his first name, Edgar, from his grandfather, Edgar Rosenberg. With his grandmother’s looks and his grandfather’s moniker, Endicott will surely always remember where he came from and those who came before him.
Patty Duke’s granddaughter is a red-head like her famous relative
Patty Duke is another icon whose family followed in her footsteps. Her son, Sean Astin, got into the business early on thanks to movies like 1985’s The Goonies and 1992’s Encino Man, before nabbing roles as an adult in The Lord of the Rings franchise as Samwise Gamgee, and Bob in the second season of Stranger Things. Sean is also the father of Ali Astin, who is the young actress that popped up as Elanor Gamgee, the daughter of her real-life dad’s character in The Return of the King.
Ali’s career is likely helped by the fact that she has the same lovely looks as her grandmother, including her nose and red hair. When she shared a photo of Duke beside a photo of herself in December 2017, the similarities were impossible to ignore. And the younger woman’s followers couldn’t help but comment on the resemblance, writing, "I see her so much in you," and "You look like your grandma."
Ali also shared the last text her "nana" sent her before passing, after receiving her "first big review." Duke told her granddaughter, "Ali dear, Pops and I are so proud of you. Congrats on your rave review. Wish we could have seen you. We’re not surprised that you did so well. We think of you all the time. We love and miss you a ton."
Loretta Lynn’s granddaughter is also a country singer
"Nothing makes me happier than this," Tayla Lynn, the granddaughter of country music star and the singer of "Coal Miner’s Daughter" Loretta Lynn, wrote on Instagram in March 2020, alongside a screenshot of an article that claims she "looks exactly like the legend." The piece added that "Tayla Lynn, could portray the country music superstar without question. From those high cheekbones to that infectious smile, it’s clear that the apple didn’t fall far from the tree."
"While fans can clearly see Loretta and Tayla are related, you can also hear the family resemblance, too," the piece continued. Of course, this is obvious when the younger Lynn takes on tunes like her grandmother’s beloved hit "You Ain’t Woman Enough To Take My Man," which she performed for Today In Nashville. Tayla even took the stage with her grandmother to perform as a duo. The moment was surely a thrill for fans, and we imagine will be one that both singers remember for the rest of their lives.
Richard Burton’s granddaughter has looks that landed her on a BBC period drama
If you’re a fan of the BBC period drama series Call the Midwife, then you’re likely also a fan of Charlotte Ritchie, the actress who played Barbara Gilbert on the show from 2015 to 2018. However, while you were watching her portray a life-saving nurse, you might not have known that her "mother Kate Burton is also an actress and is most famous for her roles in Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal," according to Yours. But that’s not where the famous family tree stops branching out: "Kate’s father and Charlotte’s grandfather is Richard Burton, who was most famous for Cleopatra and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf as well as many more."
Now that you know, you’ll surely be able to see the resemblance between Ritchie and her grandfather, the man who was once (or rather, twice) married to Elizabeth Taylor. The same eyes, nose, smile, and magnificent mane of hair that helped Burton establish himself as a Hollywood golden age movie star in the ’50s are the same features that helped land Ritchie the role of a nurse from that same era.
