Olympic athletes aren’t the only ones showing off at the 2016 Games; Brazilian-born stars are using the spotlight on Rio as a way to highlight their heritage. Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima returned to their home country to carry the Olympic torch at the opening ceremony, while Matthew McConaughey traveled to Rio with his Brazilian-American wife, Camila Alves, and their three kids to take in the games.

Once the official duties were over, Ambrosio had a little fun with her look-alike kids, 7-year-old Anja Louise and 4-year-old Noah Phoenix, in Rio. The model took to Instagram to share one cute snap with her mini-me (above), writing, “It’s always better when we are together.” Ambrosio called her little one, “minha flor,” which translates to “my flower,” adding, “#mygirl #rio2016 #bff #snapsave #Brasil.”

The fun didn’t stop there: Over on Snapchat, the Victoria’s Secret Angel shared a few sweet photos of her young brood hugging, playing, and watching the games on TV.
