Former Strictly star Abbey Clancey is spitting image of her mum

Model Abbey Clancy, 32, is arguably one of the most beautiful women in the country.

There have never been any rumours concerning the star getting plastic surgery and she's never admitted to having any, which means it must all come down to good genes.

And now, in a photo shared by Abbey, we can see exactly where those beauty genes must have come from.

Taking to Instagram to celebrate her mum's birthday, the WAG, who shares three children with her Stoke City footballer husband Peter Crouch, posted a photo of her mum Karen Sullivan.

You won't BELIEVE how much these celebrity kids look like their famous folk...

And here's her 9 year old daughter Emme, who we'd describe in the exact same way. That smile is identical too!

Here's a young Gary Barlow during '90s-era Take That. We'd notice that cheeky boyband grin, floppy hair and chiselled jaw anywhere.

Identical 17 year old son Daniel has all the makings of a '90s boyband member, except with much better hair...!

And proving she has the exact same star quality as her mum, 20 year old doppleganger daughter Emiliewas a contestant on The Voice in 2015 - just to confuse us all.

Jaden Smith is set to become just as big a star as his dad, which is probably thanks to inheriting his good looks, cool style and, of course, those adorable ears!

Here's our favourite cheeky chappy early on in his presenting career with some seriously questionable highlights and suspiciously tanned skin. But we think this young Bradley Walsh is the spitting image of his son in the next photo.

See! Ok, so 20 year old Barney hasn't copied the dodgy highlights but he has the EXACT same face and cheeky smile. Even both their names begin with a 'B' and end in a 'Y' - SPOOKY.

Madonna needs no introduction. Her face is as iconic as her music and controversial performances. Any offspring of Madge's was always bound to carry that superstar gene.

It's all in the eyebrows! Those bushy beauties are EXACTLY the same as her mums, along with the heart face shape and general 'I don't give a damn' attitude.

We've been transported back in time right? Or we're seeing things? Or super posh people just look like each other? There's no explanation for why Princes George and William are the same little human.

Another comedian (they must have strong genes!) to make the list. John Bishop's toothy smile is nearly as big as his hilarious personality.

John Bishop's sons, Joe, Luke and Daniel

John has no less than three young doppelgangers: Joe, Luke and Daniel. They all share that dishevelled, long haired look with those pearly gnashers that unmistakably belong to the Bishops.

She wrote alongside the snap, 'Happy birthday to my beautiful mummy 💗💗 I love you so so much, don’t know what I’d do without you xxx' - but fans were stunned by how much Abbey resembled her mum.

Many wrote about how beautiful Karen is, with one comment saying: "'I have to disagree and say more like a sister!"

Another added: 'Looks like she could be your sister rather than your mum, absolute double of you.'

Another wrote, 'Wow!!! You can tell it’s your mum!!! She has the same eyes,' and one person commented, 'Stunning looks just like you.'

We've got to say, they do look almost identical.

Karen Sullivan & Abbey Clancy

Abbey gave birth to her and Peter's third childin January this year. After two daughters, seven-year-old Sophia and three-year-old Liberty, the couple welcomed a little boy and named him Johnny.

While pregnant with Johnny, Abbey revealed that she thinks they won't have any more children, saying: "I think this will be the last baby I have so I just want to embrace it."

It goes without saying that she'll carrying on dishing the genes out to her gorgeous family.

Ahh, life's so unfair sometimes.
