Fans of the Duggar family flipped out over the striking similarities between Ivy Jane Seewald and her mother, reality television star Jessa Duggar, following an Instagram upload shared by Jessa’s husband Ben Seewald. He recently posted a sweet image of his daughter to the social media site, and fans compared the little girl to her beautiful mother as an infant.
The little girl, who celebrated her first birthday on May 26, has facial features that appeared to have taken on the distinct characteristics of Jessa, including her expressive, big eyes and sweet smile. In Ben’s snap, Ivy was pictured outdoors on what appeared to be a deck area. Ivy stood happily as she smiled for the camera in an adorable green outfit with floral detail.
