Vanessa Bryant has a mini-me on her hands!

The 38-year-old star took to Instagram on Saturday, March 6 to rave over her 18-year-old daughter Natalia Diamante Bryant. Vanessa also noted that her proud mom moment would've also made her late husband, Kobe Bryant, beam with joy.

"My baby (with makeup)," she began her captioned and added a smiling face emoji and two red heart emojis with the hashtag "grown."

"Daddy would be so happy that you're pursuing your modeling career now that you're 18," Vanessa continued. "You're beautiful inside and out. Beautiful with makeup and without makeup. We love you."

It's safe to say Natalia made Vanessa's followers do a double-take because she looked just like her mother—in fact, they could be twins. The 18-year-old model rocked Vanessa's signature glam, as she swiped on a nude gloss, drew on a cat-eye and dusted her cheeks with rose-colored blush and a golden highlight.

Natalia completed her look with gold hoops, a gold necklace and a slicked-back ponytail.
