  • not mine. my dd looks just like me. and oddly enough my ds was at birth and still is a spitting image of my older brother. we are 8.5 months prego with another ds and i think he is going ot look like his father. but we will c. even family member when they look at my kids they say it is me and my brother all over again but only in reverse. cuz dd is the oldest.

  • fiatpax is right, it's because back way before dna tests it was the one way a dad could be sure the baby was his.

  • My DD has always looked just like me, so I'm not sure. Even down to my skin tone and ear shape... She resembles me completely.
