Mark Consuelos is celebrating the birthday of his eldest son, Michael. And to mark the occasion, the 50-year-old actor made sure to remind us all where the now 24-year-old got the majority of his genes.

On Thursday, in honor of Michael’s big day, the Riverdale star shared a sweet tribute to his son in a slideshow on Instagram. The photos feature everything from past birthday celebrations to childhood throwbacks to vacation TBTs and, of course, a variety of selfies featuring the father-son duo and the rest of the fam.

“Happy 24th birthday @michael.consuelos !! You led the way..We love you!!!” Consuelos captioned the post.

The new photos prove (once again) that Michael is practically a mini version of his father. The birthday boy clearly acquired his dad’s smile, hair and even face shape.

And we weren’t the only ones to notice the uncanny resemblance. Fans and followers addressed the duo’s likeness in the comments section. One user wrote, “Exact replica of you. Happy Birthday to Michael!” while another added, “The point was to reproduce not to clone [crying laughing emoji].”

One person even made sure to give mom, Kelly Ripa, some credit as well, writing, “Happy birthday Michael !! Such a beautiful combination of his parents.”

Speaking of Ripa, the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host shared a tribute of her own, featuring a video collage of Michael. (The post even included some of the same photos posted by her hubby.) “24 years ago at 7:17pm you made your grand entrance into our lives and began our family! We love you bigger than big! @michael.consuelos,” she wrote alongside the post.

Happy birthday, Michael!
