Skai Jackson gets it from her mama. No, really.
The 16-year-old actress and her mom, Kiya Cole, are out here looking much more like twins instead of a mother-daughter duo. In a recent photo Jackson shared on Instagram, she and the woman who birthed her are proving that Black don’t crack.
Both women are sporting straight-back cornrows, fresh faces and white T-shirts. They even have an identical smize.
Jackson posted the photo for National Best Friend Day, which is fitting for the inseparable pair who powered through the industry together.
In an interview with Refinery29, Cole explained how, like any good mom, she monitors Skai’s social media and came to her defense when Jackson got into a Twitter fight with Azealia Banks.
“Skai is fairly outspoken on Twitter, so I make sure that I’m connected,” she said. “I can quickly access her page; same thing with her Instagram. She makes mistakes just like every other kid, and there were times in the past when I had to tell her, ‘Take that down.’ I do monitor that stuff.”
With a mommy like Cole, Skai won’t have to worry about losing her way in the biz or wrinkles for that matter.
