22 Relatives Who Prove DNA Is Amazing

When my two children were born, the first thing I realized was that every family member wanted to say how much the babies look like them. Yeah sure, most related family members resemble each other a bit, but it is pretty rare to see a full out doppelganger. Every once in a while though, a person’s DNA seems to push through and reappear as a clone in later generations.

Marvel at these 22 cases where DNA showed how powerful it can really be. You will freak out at how similar some of these relatives look to one another.

1. This daughter (left) and father (right) look stunningly similar!
