Beyoncé and Blue Ivy are practically twins in new Instagram photo

By Sarah Walker

While many people have argued that Blue Ivy looks more like her father, Jay Z, than mom, Beyoncé, a new photo collage shared by Tina Lawson (née Knowles) totally contradicts that.


The grouping of three images, which Beyoncé's mom shared to Instagram on Thursday, shows an old-school picture of the award-winning artist at the age of five -- the same age Blue Ivy is now, and it's clear there's a striking resemblance between the pair.

Someone sent this to me . How cute is this ?

"Someone sent this to me. How cute is this?" Tina captured the image, that shows the two tots posing in a similar manner with almost identical grins.

In fact, nearly everything in the image screams "mom and daughter twinsies." Their hair is styled the same, their brows are identically coiffed and their eyes are the same shape. Beyoncé and Blue Ivy even share the exact same cheekbone structure.


Naturally fans are fawning over the photo, saying things like, "Perfect pictures, look like twins," and "the epitome of Beauty Blue Blue makes my heart smile every time I see her gorgeous face."

The image is further proof that Blue Ivy was born with good genes -- not just in the looks department, but also sartorially. She's already showing off the swagger she inherited from her mom, which is clear from the Instagram pictures Beyoncé has shared of the duo.

She's a mini-celebrity in the making!
