As the old adage goes, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, and if you've ever wondered whether good genes run in the family, you have to look no further than models and their offspring for definitive proof. Every decade had its top girls: Twiggy in the ’60s; the ’70s had a whole crop like Jerry Hall, Beverly Johnson, Iman and Lauren Hutton, to name a few; and the ’80s and ’90s, were a time when fashion and pop culture collided to propel names such as Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, and Kate Moss to stratospheric fame.

In the time since, the supers have also become mothers, and it should come as no surprise that their genetically blessed children have also taken their turn on the runway. In honour of Mother's Day, we take a look at the striking progeny that have follow their mother's footsteps on the catwalk.

Is it any wonder that Victoria Beckham's kids would also be models? Her eldest, Brooklyn, has turned his attention to his modelling career after a stint as an aspiring photographer, but it's really Romeo who has the serious modelling chops—he's been in several Burberry campaigns since he was a child.
