Elizabeth Hurley‘s lookalike son has posted a picture of himself wearing his mum’s T-shirt to mark his 17th birthday.

The family resemblance is clear in the image that Damian shared with his 33,000 Instagram followers for his birthday yesterday.

His short-sleeved camouflage T-shirt is identical to one worn by Elizabeth in a previous Instagram post in 2017, a detail which only highlights the pair’s strong resemblance.

He also mirrors his mother’s pose in the copycat woodlands shot.

People have rushed in to comment on the uncanny resemblance in the comments section.

One wrote, “god bless your mother’s genetics”, while another added: “Oh and, years passing on, you do look stunningly like your mummy.”

Others commented “Ditto image of ur mum…” and “Happy 17th birthday Damien you are stunningly beautiful like your mom”.

Damian is Elizabeth’s son with American businessman Steve Bing. A DNA test confirmed the paternity in 2002, although it is unknown whether he has had any involvement in Damian’s life.

Elizabeth also shared an Instagram post to mark Damian’s birthday yesterday.

She posted a gallery of three images of her and her son, including one of him wearing the aforementioned camouflage T-shirt.

 It’s not just looks the pair have in common, but similar personalities too, according to Elizabeth who has previously spoken about her close bond with Damian.

She told The Sun: “Given I’m a single mother and he’s an only child, by default we spend a lot of time together and we are utterly comfortable in each other’s company.

“I rather think I’ve simply been blessed with a child whose personality gels with mine.

“Friends who have several children always admit, although they love them all equally, inevitably there’s one whose personality mirrors their own and they ‘get’ each other better.”
