Apparently the apple doesn’t fall from the tree in Tammy Rivera‘s case.
The “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” star blew fans away with a recent picture of herself with her teenage daughter Charlie. She told fans her daughter basically “stole” all of her facial features.
She took to Instagram on Tuesday and uploaded an image of her and the 13-year-old taking a mobile selfie in the car. Rivera posed makeup-free next to her daughter and wrote in her caption, “She stole my whole face and it’s even more beautiful 🤦🏽♀️.”
Fans were blown away by the mother and daughter’s likeness, saying it was almost “scary” how much they look alike.
“Wow now that’s scary! Charlie literally looks like a mini version of you 😩💜.”
“❤️😌 I was about to say can’t even tell y’all apart anymore. Don’t blame her, you gave ur face to her 😘.”
“Twins forreal 😍! It’s beautiful to have a child, that looks like you, but it’s amplified by a million.”
A few others fans felt indifferent, saying Charlie looks like her stepfather, Waka Flocka.
“The crazy thing is she looks like Wacka. My late Pastor always said if you feed someone long enough they start looking like you. I love it❤️.”
“@charliesangelll when I tell you she looks just like @wakaflocka ❣️! She is his God sent child!”
Rivera’s husband has a special bond with her daughter and claims her as his own child, getting a huge tattoo of her face stamped on his left forearm in March 2018.
The 32-year-old mother said one of the reasons she stayed with her husband through his infidelities was because of his close relationship with the teen. The couple split for a while in 2017 after he allegedly cheated on her with another woman. Rivera said that during their separation period it was important for her to set a strong example for her daughter.
“I try to explain to people that it was so important for my child to see that during my separation with my husband that nothing was gonna change financially for her,” Rivera told Essence in October 2017. “That made me step up and say, ‘You know what? I can’t allow my daughter to feel like, oh, when a man left … my life changed.’ No, I couldn’t let that happen.”
