In show-biz, there’s no denying that the best celebrity doppelgängers are kids who look like their famous parents. Whether the stars’ offspring are still children or have grown up to be full-fledged adults, one thing’s for sure, genetics are cray, and seeing double, miniature versions of celebs we know and love is kind of a trippy experience.
Check out some of our favourite local celebrities and their mini-mes:
1. Marion Caunter
With Marion Caunter constantly uploading Instagram-worthy photos of her children online, it’s hard to not fall in love with the kids (and their picture perfect mummy).
In 2010, she married executive chairman of Naza Group SM Nasaruddin SM Nasimuddin, started a hair salon called Hairplay in Publika, and bore three children Leia Rose, 5, Lana Rose, 3, and Liam Naza, 1. To top it off, the Penang-born beauty is often jet-setting around the globe. Busy, busy. 💃
2. Harith Iskander
Funniest Person In The World, Harith Iskander who married doctor and FHM model Jezamine Lim, have three beautiful children together, 2-year-old Zander Xayne Iskander, 5-year-old Zydane Xayne Iskander and 3-year-old Alessandra Jayne Iskander.
3. Amber Chia
Amber Chia got hitched secretly with Adrian Wong, her manager and business partner, on the mystical island of Bali. The ex-founder of Absolute Entertainment, event company responsible for bringing Pussycat Dolls to Malaysia, gifted the bride a two-carat diamond ring, while she gave him a Bulgari wedding band.
The pair have a 6-year-old son together, Ashton Wong. When asked if the supermodel would want more children in the future, she’d highly prefer a baby girl next, as it would make her dream family complete.
4. Yasmin Hani
Yasmin Hani Richardson, well-known actress in the local entertainment industry as well as an entrepreneur running her baby spa, is happily married to the former drummer of Blackrose, Sha’rin Mohd Razali, for over four years now. The couple welcomed their second child, Eissa Elzander Wong, on 27th December last year, adding a new member in the family alongside their firstborn, Noah Ismail Wong.
5. Ning Baizura
It’s not always easy being a celebrity in Malaysia. Beautiful singer, Ning Baizura who’s married to Christopher Dalton, was accused of seeking cheap publicity when she held a press conference to show off her first child, Ryan Sky Dalton to the media, when she only wanted to share her happiness to the world.
Shortly after, haters started a controversial debate over how ‘white’ her child’s name is, in which the songstress responded with a Facebook post, saying, “The name is more Islamic thank you think. Ryan in Arabic and Persian means ‘wisdom’, ‘gate to heaven’ or ‘fragrant herb’.” Hey guys..picking on celebs, not cool.
6. Sazzy Falak
Handsome couple, Sazzy Falak and her financial coach husband, Nazril Idrus welcomed their fraternal twins, Iman Lilly and Tiara Rose, into the world on 28 April 2011. The actress has also discussed on incorporating breastfeeding into her work life, which takes a lot of planning and can be a challenge.
Apart from running SinclairFalak, an artiste branding and management company she set up with BFF Aishah Sinclair, the health-conscious beauty is also involved in promoting her own line of organic skincare, personal care, household and baby care products, together with her family.
Determined for a gentle, drug free birth, TV Host Aishah Sinclair and husband, Shahnaz welcomed their children, Soraya Ann and Aina Elisabeth through a serene water-birthing method, HypnoBirthing, describing it as, “intense, but there was no pain.”
Malaysian personality, Patricia Knudsen and her DJ partner, Mr. Joey G welcomed a baby girl, Sophia Sue Lin, last October at St Mary’s Hospital, London. The hot mommy only revealed of her pregnancy by making an announcement on Instagram in the most cutest way possible, “When you find out your beer bump was actually a baby bump this whole time.” Aww!
9. Daphne Iking
Malaysian TV personality Daphne Iking and her director husband, Azmi Abdul Rahman aka Joe Lebosi have two children together, Isidore Daniel Iking Azmi, and Iman Daniella Iking Azmi. Daphne also has an older daughter from a previous relationship, Isobel Daniella who was born in November 2007. We’re big fans of Daphne’s channel on YouTube where we get to watch Daphne, Joe and the kids unplugged. It’s like watching the Malaysian version of Modern Family.

Turning dreams into reality, Malaysia’s very own Nigela Lawson, Danielle Peita Graham proves that she has the super-mom gene under her belt by showcasing her passion for food through her first culinary offering.
