Jennifer Garner Shares Rare Childhood Photo on Instagram (& Her Celebrity Followers Can’t Get Enough)

We’re total suckers for celebrity baby photos. And it appears Reese Witherspoon and Gwyneth Paltrow feel the exact same way.

It all started earlier this month when Jennifer Garner shared a rare childhood picture on her personal Instagram account. The collage features three images—two are current photos of the 49-year-old actress, and the other is a never-before-seen pic of “baby Jen.”

In all three photos, Garner is casually glancing over her left shoulder to show off her best side. There’s no denying the resemblance between her adult and her younger self, since everything from her prominent dimples to her cheeky pose hasn’t changed one bit.

Garner captioned the post, “When you know your angle…#DidSomeoneCall? #OverTheShoulder.”

It didn’t take long for her famous followers to comment on the baby photo. Witherspoon wrote, “It’s Baby Jen for me! [heart-eye emoji].” Paltrow added, “The dimples!” Rita Wilson chimed in, “What? Who? Me?” Kevin Weisman even quoted Madonna: “Strike a pose. There’s nothing to it. Vogue.”

Garner currently shares two children—Violet (15), Seraphina (12) and Samuel (9)—with her ex-husband, Ben Affleck. The actress previously opened up about the one piece of parenting advice that “has really stuck with me. “It’s not until I had my third that I learned to prepare my child for the path, instead of preparing the path for my child,” she said during an episode of the Mom Brain podcast.

We’ll take more baby Jen pics. Please and thank you.
