It’s generally pretty expected that kids look something like their parents. But when a child is a carbon copy of one parent, or an amazingly equal mix of both, it’s pretty remarkable.

Be it Lori Loughlin’s doppelgänger daughters or Clint Eastwood’s son who could pass for his twin, we love it when celebrities’ kids look just like them.

Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid were one of the most talked-about couples of the ’90s. They fell in love while filming D.O.A., the second movie they starred in together, and were married for just about 10 years before separating.

In 1992, the actor and actress had a son named Jack Henry.

Today, Jack is all grown up and he looks just like both of his parents.

At first, he appears to be a carbon copy of his dad. But when you look a little closer, the resemblance to his mom is striking.

Jack is beginning to make a name for himself as his acting career takes off.

Keep scrolling to meet Jack Quaid and see the shocking resemblance to his famous parents.

Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan

Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan were married on Valentine’s Day in 1991. They had worked together on two films, and fell in love on the set of the second, D.O.A. Talk about iconic early ’90s movie stars!

The power couple was married for 10 years. They announced their separation in 2000, although the divorce was not finalized until 2001.

While they were together, Meg and Dennis had one child, a son named Jack Henry Quaid. He was born on April 24, 1992.

Though he was the son of two famous actors, Jack was off the grid for most of his young life. But in 2012, he got his first acting role in the breakout film The Hunger Games. In March 2016, Jack spoke to Us Weekly about his parents’ divorce, saying: “It’s kind of hard to ignore when you’re at a grocery store and you’re like, checking out and you know those People and In Touch magazines on the side, and you look at them and there’s a photo of [your parents].”

Since then, Jack has attended New York University’s prestigious Tisch School of the Arts, and starred in the HBO show Vinyl, among other things. He told Us Weekly that he knows “the way that I grew up was not normal,” but says that no matter their fame and fortune, his parents “are still a mom and a dad.”
