The apple doesn't fall far from the tree

Kelly Ripa is her mother's daughter. The TV host just posted some throwback side-by-side photos of her and her mom Esther Ripa, and they are literal twins.

The one post shows a throwback photo of Ester with her haired pulled back wearing a collared shirt and black blazer, and at first glance, she could be mistaken as Kelly. The side-by-side photos of Ester and Kelly were taken in 1980 and 2005, respectively.

"Mom 1980. Me 2005." Kelly captioned the post that proves she is truly the spitting image of her mother. And we aren't the only ones who think they're identical. Her friend Anderson Cooper commented "Wow!" and Busy Philipps left three mind-blown emojis. Her husband Mark Consuelos' Riverdale co-star Vanessa Morgan commented "Omgggg twins," and Naomi Watts commented "incredible."

The star shared another throwback photo of the look alikes in an International Women's Day post, which showed Esther holding Kelly as a kid.

"To my mothers, daughters, sisters and mentors," she wrote. "You're all phenomenal women. Happy #internationalwomensday"
