The apple doesn't fall far from the tree when it comes to Mariah Carey and her daughter, Monroe Cannon.

At just 10-years-old the daughter of Carey and her ex husband Nick Cannon has secured her first ever modelling campaign, and paid homage to her very own mother.

The campaign comes courtesy of American kidswear brand OshKosh B'Gosh, who focussed on three culture-contributing, era-defining artists and athletes to celebrate their back to school 'Today Is Someday' campaign.

The three influential people include Muhammad Ali, Outkast (hip hop duo Andre 3000 and Big Boi) and Carey, with the advert celebrating the stages of the three artists' life.

When it came to Carey, who better to replicate the Grammy-winning artist as a child than her own daughter?

Depicting the 51-year-old writing down her song lyrics as a child in the 1980s and singing into her hairbrush at a dressing table, Monroe also narrates the advert as she plays the part of her mother while wearing Eighties-appropriate dungarees.

Monroe finishes the advert by watching a butterfly fly off into the distance, which pays homage to Carey's 1997 album, Butterfly.

'As a little girl, I was determined to realise my dreams. Now as a mother, it brings me so much joy to see my children visualise and develop the dreams they hold in their own hearts,' Carey said in a statement about the advert, according to People. 'We did the campaign because we love the message of empowering kids to dream boldly and blaze their own path."

During her 2019 Caution tour, Carey brought her children out on stage to meet the crowd.
