Bec Hewitt and her five-year-old daughter are practically identical.

Bec Hewitt gave birth to her third child, daughter Ava in October 2010 and the little girl has grown up to look just like her beach loving mum.

Hewitt has proven just how alike her and her five-year-old daughter are with the most recent photo she has posted to her Instagram account.

The photo was captioned with, "Missing the sunshine!" It was captured while the family were in the Bahamas, and Ava is rocking an Aussie swimsuit.

The sunnies are pretty stylish too.

This isn't the first lookalike photo Bec has posted since joining Instagram late last year. In fact her first post was of Ava dressed in a Harry Potter costume, looking exactly like her beautiful mum.

If you need anymore proof that the mother-daughter duo are near identical, have a look at the two side-by-side.

Both gorgeous.

Ava is the Hewitt's youngest child. They also have a daughter, Mia, 10 and a son, Cruz, 7.

Many of Bec's followers commented on Ava's beach photo saying, "Ava looks like her mum very much so!"

"She is the spitting image of you @bechewitt23 so cute," another wrote.

We agree, Ava is beautiful just like her mum and we're sure the resemblance will only become more apparent as little Ava grows up.

Do you know any child and parent duo who look identical?
