    Mum's side of the family say I look like mum, dad's side say I look like dad. I see myself as 50:50 though in terms of looks.

    I don't look anything like my mum or dad but I'm the spitting image of my gran and papa, especially my gran. People think she's my mum and my mum is my sister. I'm happy to look like my grandparents. They are looking great for their age and looked good in their younger days too.

    Everyone says that my mum and I look like sisters - even immigration officers at the airport when they have our passports inform of them. It can get pretty awkward lol

    I don't think I look like either of my parents tbh. I have had a few comments in the past from people saying I look like my mum but I don't see it tbh but I take it as a compliment though ! But people are always saying that my mum and older sister look alike and my dad and younger brother look alike and then there's me

    This is pretty much the case with me too. I'm blonde like my mum & have her eyes, but the rest of my facial features probably resemble my dad's more. You can definitely tell I'm their daughter if you see the three of us together.

    I guess you can see my dad in me, but I look mostly like my mama. I don't mind looking like my mam.

    this is a really really bad photo of us both but you get the idea haha

    This is my dad. Not as much of a resemblance there but maybe a tad. I think I have more of his nose.

    I look like my dad. I don't have any of my mum's features at all. Neither me nor my sister look even remotely like my mum and it upsets her a bit to be honest!

    I've always been told I'm the spitting image of my dad. I'm not sure how I feel about being told I look like the double of a man :confused:

    Everything is like my mums except the nose(had to be the nose!!). But I have to thank my dad for the "eating so much but never gaining weight" trait.
