Tracee Ellis Ross Looks So Much Like Mom Diana *and* Dad Bob in National Look-Alike Day Post

These days, it feels like there's a holiday for everything, from National Margarita Day to National Ice Cream Day (and you certainly won't find us complaining about either of those). But more recently, April 20th was National Look-Alike Day, which Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross commemorated by sharing a slideshow highlighting the similarities between her and her parents, Diana Ross and Robert Ellis Silberstein.

In the slideshow, Ross posted two collages featuring a recent picture of herself, stitched next to a photo of her mom and dad striking the same pose. Based on the pics, it's clear that the 49-year-old actress is the mirror image of her parents, and she pointed this out in the caption, where she said, “It’s the copy and paste for me. #nationallookalikeday.”

While we've noticed in the past that Ross is her mother's mini-me, this slideshow makes a good case for her resemblance to Robert (AKA Bob).

In the comments, fellow celebs recognized the similarities too, like Ross's frequent stylist, Karla Welch, who said, “Wow.” Rita Wilson also said, “Love!” Meanwhile other followers pointed it out too, like one user who wrote, “Perfect mix of both parents.” Another referenced similar characteristics, saying, “Mom's eyes and Dad's nose...and it's put together very nicely!”

It's clear that there are strong genes in this family. Last April, on a different holiday—National Siblings Day—the Black-ish star shared a slideshow with all of her siblings, and we couldn't help but notice the striking resemblance between these family members too.

Tracee never fails to entertain us with her Instagram posts.
