The looka­like par­ent trap

THEY ARE WIN­NERS of the ge­netic lot­tery, born into lav­ish wealth and a world where doors swing open, yet celeb off­spring seem to have a rough time of it. De­prived of pri­vacy, si­mul­ta­ne­ously labour­ing in the spot­light of pub­lic fas­ci­na­tion and the shad­ows of their par­ents, they tend to be given the sort of names that don’t do them any favours at school (Jamie Oliver’s brood in­cludes River Rocket, Buddy Bear and Petal Blos­som, and the Kar­dashian-west fam­ily have Saint, North and Chicago). No won­der Rod Stew­art’s el­dest son Sean once called his dad’s sta­tus a ‘curse and a hin­drance’. Life must be even trick­ier when you look the spit of them… — Jeremy Olds

Mum’s the word3. ‘Mother-daugh­ter ri­valry? We’ve never been closer!’ said Cindy Craw­ford, pulling in Kaia Ger­ber dur­ing a Mother’s Day event in Cal­i­for­nia this year. ‘Mum,’ Ger­ber ut­tered,‘I can’t breathe.’4. There’s no deny­ing the like­ness be­tween Goldie Hawn and Kate Hud­son – you can see it plainly in their iden­ti­cal clenched-jaw smiles.5. Reese Wither­spoon and Ava Eliz­a­beth Phillippe (or is it Ava and Reese?) took mother-daugh­ter twin­ning to the matchy-matchy ex­treme in LA last month.6. You can tell by the way Suri Cruise dragged her mother from the Lin­coln Cen­ter ear­lier this year that Katie Holmes was in for a fash­ion les­son once they got in the car.7. It was a tight race to be crowned Planet Earth’s Most Sullen French­woman, but in the end Lily-rose Depp took the ti­tle ahead of her mother Vanessa Par­adis in Paris this year.8. For Gwyneth Pal­trow, the Ap­ple doesn’t fall far from the tree – Ap­ple Martin, that is. Here’s an In­sta­gram selfie of the blue-eyed duo on Na­tional Daugh­ters Day this year.

Daddy dear­est1. ‘Come on, Dad, put some mus­cle into it!’ Joseph Baena ‘out-arnies’ his dad, Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger.2. Martin Sheen poses proudly with his ac­tor son Emilio Estevez at the 2007 Crit­ics’ Choice Awards. Don’t worry, you two, baby brother Char­lie is at home sleep­ing it off.
