Earlier this week, Smith-Harris posted two adorable family photos, one with their 5-year-old daughter Skylar and another with their 7-year-old son Omere. With both portraits, fans claimed the “Love and Hip Hop: New York” star and her husband were starting to resemble each other.
“They say when a couple really in love they start resembling each other .. that’s it u all related 😂,” one fan wrote at the time.
Someone else commented, “I thought it was just me. Yandy and Mendeecees are starting to look like one another.”

I came home just in time to share this moment with u, be here with u and make u smile, while we face our hardest challenge of them all.
