Ruffa Gutierrez is definitely one proud mama!
On Wednesday, the Love Thy Woman actress reposted an Instagram photo of her 15-year-old bunso Venice Bektas, and followers couldn’t get over how mother and daughter look so alike.
The pic taken by Ruffa’s eldest Lorin showed Venice looking all-grown-up in a purple-colored tank top.
Ruffa’s caption read: “My youngest is growing up so fast!!! 🙁 @venicebektas stay little.”
“Stay little Venezia,” she added in the comments.
Fans took to the comments section to say that the picture made them do a double take because Venice was Ruffa’s “carbon copy”.
“Your twinnie,” one Instagram user said.
“At first look, I thought she was you,” another said.
“I thought she was you hahaha. Your mini-me,” another commented.
Some fans suggested that she could follow in the footsteps of her former beauty queen mom, who at 19 years old was named Second Princess in the 1993 Miss World pageant.
Born Venezia Loran in September 2004 in L.A., Venice is turning 16 this year.
And she’s proving to be a young lady growing more confident and comfortable in her own skin.
Based on her Instagram, Venice loves posting travel and beach photos, and posing with her older sister and mommy.
For the single mom Ruffa, Venice will always be her baby girl “who promised that she would take care till I’m 80.”
There’s no denying, as Ruffa also proudly conceded in an Instagram post, that her teenager is “starting to look just like me.”
