Sofía Vergara just proved that good genes run in the family.

Yesterday, the Modern Family star, 50, posted a slideshow on Instagram featuring photos from an event honoring the actress’s suncare line, Toty. The post featured a picture of Sofía posing with her niece, Claudia, and the resemblance is uncanny.

The first photo showed Sofía and her lookalike niece standing in front of a pool. The pic was followed by a solo shot, a selfie and a video of the Toty display. Vergara captioned the post, “The perfect summer day!! @toty [sun emojis].”

There’s no denying the resemblance between Sofía and Claudia, including their perfect eyebrows and toothy smiles. To top it off, they are both wearing floral midi dresses and sporting loose curls with their hair parted down the center. Oh, and how can we forget about their pose and shoes, which are also identical?

Claudia is the daughter of Sofía’s late brother, Rafael. Just like her aunt, Claudia is also an actress. Her roles mainly consist of telenovas, including Aquelarre, Directo al Corazón, No Abras la Puerta, Vidas en riesgo and Lo Que Callamos Las Mujeres. She’s also starred in Ugly Me and Woman Coming Out of the Sea.

Sofía shared more photos from the event on Twitter, and the post featured more solo shots, videos and angles of her flattering dress.

Talk about a gene pool.
