Matthew McConaughey’s oldest son, Levi, is starting to look more and more like his dad every day. The 15-year-old recently posted a photo of himself reading his dad’s new children’s book, titled Just Because, on Instagram—and the striking resemblance between he and The Wolf of Wall Street alum is simply uncanny.

In the newly shared photo, Levi is sitting up in bed while reading the book. He practically looked like a carbon copy of his dad, from his curly hair to his facial structure. In the caption of the post, the teen expressed how proud he is of his dad’s work. “It has been so cool to watch my dad these past few years,” he wrote.

Levi added, “Working on new projects and watching them succeed. He’s been writing and creating and to see his first book #GreenlightsBook was awesome! Now he’s on to his second book, #JustBecauseBook and I’m really excited about it. Can’t wait to see what he does next…”

Back in July, Matthew, 53, and his wife, Camila Alves, 41, gifted their son with his very own Instagram account on his 15th birthday. To celebrate the occasion, the couple posted a video of themselves unveiling the big surprise on social media.

“Happy birthday Levi Alves McConaughey,” the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star said in the birthday tribute video. “Can you believe it?” Alves eagerly chimed in.

“Yes, we are allowing you, today on your 15th birthday, to join the social media universe,” the actor said. His wife added, “Yes, all his friends have had it for a long time. We’ve been holding out.”

Those are some strong family genes you got there, Matthew.
