Introducing Riley Matthews, the pre-teen old daughter of Cory and Topanga in the upcoming"Boy Meets World" spinoff.

11-year-old actress Rowan Blanchard has been cast in the pilot of the upcoming Disney Channelshow "Girl Meets World," which begins filming next month.

We can definitely see a resemblance in little Rowan's face ... but where are her parents' curly locks?! 

"As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded of why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews," Michael Jacobs -- who’s producing the pilot -- tells EW. "Rowan is real and accessible and I am hopeful this girl is about to meet a world that will love growing up with her as well."

Once the news was announced, Ben and Danielle Fishel took to Twitter to introduce their TV daughter to their fans.

"I have a beautiful, new daughter. Welcome to the family‪ @rowblanchard‬! ‪#GirlMeetsWorld," tweeted Ben.

"Want to meet my and @BenSavage's daughter for Girl Meets World? Here she is: @rowblanchard!! Congratulations beautiful girl! Can't wait," added Danielle.

If the series gets greenlit, it will premiere on Disney in 2013.

With as long as those 2 have been a TV couple I'm surprised they didn't end up together in real life. Lol
