Gwen Stefani Looks Identical to Her Son Zuma in New Throwback Pic

Gwen Stefani just shared a rare childhood photo, and she looks exactly like her son, Zuma.

Over the weekend, the 50-year-old singer celebrated Zuma’s 12th birthday on her personal Instagram account by sharing a series of never-before-seen pictures.

The slideshow features several photos that were taken throughout Zuma’s childhood, including a side-by-side photo of Stefani at that same age. The likeness is uncanny—everything from the eyes and the nose to the sweet smile screams doppelgänger.

Stefani captioned the post, “Happy birthday to my ZUMA I can’t believe u r 12 years old today!! we love u sooooooo much!!”

The “Sweet Escape” singer shares Zuma with her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, who posted his very own birthday tribute.

The caption read, “ZUMA NESTA ROCK ROSSDALE—12 years old today—greatest guy I know—I love every minute with you—what a gift you are—here’s to you—a new year—full of all possibilities—thanks for making my life infinitely better with your presence—you are the future—the kids are the future—let’s do our best by them—always reaching for a better world—love you Zuma.”

Stefani welcomed Zuma back in 2008. She also has two other sons, Kingston (14) and Apollo (6).

Back in May, the musician celebrated Kingston’s birthday on Instagram. Stefani shared a photo of Kingston smiling at the camera while wearing layered necklaces (including one with his name), and we couldn’t help but notice how much the two also look alike.

Like mother, like son(s).
