We were seeing double on yesterday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Mark, where Kelly Ripa, 52, seemingly found her doppelgänger in the form of Lincoln Lawyer actress Becki Newton, 45.

The two posed side-by-side on Wednesday's ep, where Newton stopped by to discuss the new season of her Netflix legal drama. A clip of the two (wearing matching pink dresses, btw) was posted to the official Live Instagram, with the caption: “Can’t tell them apart [laughing emoji].”

As seen in the clip above, Newton walked onto the stage in a Weiss-printed long sleeve ruffle maxi dress from Veronica Beard (currently on sale for $342), which was the exact same 'fit that Ripa was wearing.

As Newton stood next to Ripa, the co-host laughed and said, “You know what this is, Becki Newton? This is just mean of you to do to me.” The Lincoln Lawyer star then took her seat and joked, “Now, everyone says we look alike but I just don't see it?”

Of course, we do see it, and so do the producers of Live, who posted that same video to the show page's Instagram Story and wrote, “Twins.”

While the lookalike celebs matched in their asymmetrical magenta dresses, Ripa added another splash of color with her shoes, which were Gianvito Rossi Portofino leather sandals in yellow ($995; $398). Newton kept her footwear neutral with a pair of white heels.

This isn't the first time that Newton has been a guest on the daytime talk show. She previously visited back in Feb. 2018, where she talked about her HBO series Divorce (and we wonder if the topic of her and Ripa's similarities came up backstage).

We think Newton needs to return in October and she and Ripa can do a Parent Trap-themed Halloween costume.
