Oh, mother

Spit­ting images

1. Mu­sic to the eyes of mod­el­ling scouts ev­ery­where, Cindy Craw­ford ap­pears to have made a clone of her­self in her 15-year-old daugh­ter, Kaia Ger­ber – as seen at a Moschino show in Los An­ge­les last year. Kaia, for ref­er­ence, is on the left. 2. Given she’s in­tent on fol­low­ing her mum into mod­el­ling – as dis­played by their ap­pear­ance on Chanel’s red car­pet dur­ing Paris Fash­ion Week last year – it’s lucky Lily-rose Depp looks just like Vanessa Par­adis. She could have in­her­ited her fa­ther’s pen­chant for tat­toos, tril­bies and tiny beards. 3. Vis­i­bly part of the same cut­lery set, Reese Wither­spoon showed off her looka­like daugh­ter, Ava, at a film pre­miere last month.

On-screen genes

4. Long be­fore Gwyneth Pal­trow’s life turned to Goop, she and her mother, Blythe Dan­ner, con­sciously cou­pled on the big screen in the 2003 lit­er­ary biopic Sylvia. 5. For most peo­ple, the idea of work­ing with their mother would be a fresh hell. But for ac­tress Mamie Gum­mer, whose mother is Meryl Streep, it prob­a­bly isn’t such a bad ca­reer move. Here they are in 2015’s Ricki and the Flash.

Great ex­pec­ta­tions

6. Per­haps tak­ing a pes­simistic view of how large she might be­come, model Rosie Hunt­ing­ton-white­ley ap­peared to have beached her­self for this preg­nancy an­nounce­ment on In­sta­gram last month. 7. Also last month, Bey­oncé chose this flo­ral scene to de­clare she’s ex­pect­ing twins in the sum­mer. Given her first daugh­ter’s called Blue, the tech­ni­colour back­drop may well be there as nam­ing inspiratio­n.

‘All that I Am, or hope to be, I owe to my an­gel mother,’ Abra­ham lincoln once said. You’d never hear such sweet­ness and hu­mil­ity from the cur­rent US pres­i­dent (though, in fair­ness, he

would need to ex­change ‘mother’ for‘ mas­sive in­her­i­tance ’), but lincoln’s sen­ti­ment ought to echo around house­holds across the coun­try this week­end. For most of us, moth­er­ing Sun­day is that one chance in the year when we get to thank our moth­ers for all their love and hard work. For moth­ers, mean­while, it’s t hat one chance in the year when they can say, in uni­son, ‘ Where t he bloody hell are my thanks on the other 364 days?’ For to­mor­row, at least, mum’s the word – don’t dare for­get it. —
