Lisa Wilkinson and her beautiful look-alike daughter attend her year 12 school formal.

Lisa Wilkinson and her daughter Billi could not be more alike.

This week, the Today Show team have been travelling all around Australia, but thankfully host Lisa Wilkinson made it home to help her daughter Billi celebrate a pretty important milestone.

After a week of ballooning in the Barossa and riding vomit-inducing roller coasters in Queensland, Wilkinson flew home from Byron Bay on Thursday. She arrived just in time for Billi’s Year 12 Formal.

“Crazy day,” she posted on Instagram. “Byron this morning and then back home in time to see my smart, funny, kind, sharp-as-a-whip, beautiful daughter (here with her great friend Jade) off to her Year 12 Formal. So proud….and stunned at how quickly the years have passed.”

We are pretty stunned too, having heard Billi-based anecdotes on the Today Show for the past 8 years. Time certainly does fly.


Billi looked absolutely gorgeous on her special night, and just a bit (a lot) like her mum. Wilkinson’s Instagram followers were quick to notice the striking similarities. “Absolutely stunning just like her mama,” said one. Another saying, “Wow Lisa she is a chip off the ol block..beautiful.”

We hope you had a great night Billi!

Sorry, Boss. A Today Show host slept in.
