Salma Hayek is a Mexican and American actress, model, and producer. She rose to fame in the United States after her role in the 2002 movie Frida.

Before that, she’d had smaller roles in other films, including DesperadoDogma, and Wild Wild West.

More recently, Salma has starred in Grown UpsPuss in Boots, and The Hitman’s Bodyguard.

The 51-year-old star has been with her now-husband, François-Henri Pinault, since the mid-2000s. The two announced their engagement in 2007, and Salma also told the world she was pregnant.

In September 2007, the couple welcomed their daughter, Valentina Paloma Pinault.

In 2009, they tied the knot in two separate ceremonies: one in Paris and one in Venice.

Valentina is 9 years old now and starting to look a lot like her famous mom!

Check out pictures of Valentina and Salma below.

In September 2007, Salma and François-Henri welcomed baby Valentina in Los Angeles.

Valentina is Salma’s only child.

Salma and Valentina were immediately inseparable.

In fact, she was still breastfeeding Valentina while she was shooting some episodes of 30 Rock.

Now, Valentina is growing up and she’s looking more and more like her mom every day.

Valentina and Salma are still ridiculously close, and they love to travel together.

This May, they went to Venice together and took some cute mommy-daughter pictures like this!

Valentina clearly loves spending time with her mom, too.

They look like they really are best friends.

But there’s something really striking about this mother-daughter duo: they look so alike!

Do you see the resemblance?

If you can’t see how alike Valentina and Salma are, take a look at some throwback photos of Salma to compare.

Here’s Salma as a little girl doing gymnastics.

And here’s Valentina being equally athletic while running track!

One fan saw this photo and commented, “I thought that was a picture of you when you were a kid.”

When Salma shared this throwback photo of herself in 2016, people immediately confused her for Valentina.

One person even had to ask, “Is that you as a little girl?”
