Blake Lively Brought Her Mom as Her Date to the VMAs and, Whoa, They Look Alike

Blake Lively turned the 2018 Video Music Awards into a family affair…without her husband and children.

The A Simple Favor star attended last night’s VMAs ceremony in New York City and walked the red carpet sans Ryan Reynolds. Instead, she brought her lookalike mother, Elaine Lively, along with three male family members.


Sure, we can’t deny that they’re an attractive bunch, but we’re more intrigued by the uncanny resemblance between Lively and her mother.

The actress wore an all-white, wide-leg pantsuit, while her mom opted for a simple LBD (natch).

Talk about a fantastic gene pool.
