Over the weekend, Sanaa Lathan (50) shared heartwarming Instagram photos bonding with her parents, siblings, and bonus mom. While most were in awe of how youthful the actress looked beside her family, it was an image of the Love & Basketball actress with her mom that left us jaw-dropped and convinced that good genes run in the family.
In the photo posted on social media, the Hit & Run actress and her mother, Eleanor McCoy (73) looked almost identical. Besides McCoy’s long silver hair, it was almost difficult to tell who was who.
Twitter followers also noticed the resemblance and their responses were spot on.
“So you really did get it from your mama,” one follower said about Sanaa and her mother’s picture.
“You just straight up stole her whole face,” another follower said.
