Julie Sprankles is a freelance writer living in the storied city of Charleston, SC. When she isn't slinging sass for SheKnows, she enjoys watching campy SyFy creature features (Pirahnaconda, anyone?), trolling the internet for dance work...

Just when you thought Blue Ivy was Jay-Z's mini-me

It seems as though anytime a picture surfaces of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's daughter Blue Ivy, the internet can't help but point out how much the 5-year-old looks like her famous father. But little Blue Ivy might just be her mama's mini-me, and Grandma Tina Knowles Lawson can prove it.

Lawson posted a throwback photo of Beyoncé to Instagram on Saturday, showing a young Bey getting her hair done. And, if we're really being honest, we could easily have assumed the little girl in the picture actually was Blue Ivy, had we not read the caption.

"If Beyoncé don't look like Blue in this photo!!! Getting her braids done by Toni," Lawson wrote of the nostalgic snapshot.

Seriously, we're seeing double. Who knew Blue looked just as much, if not more, like her mama than Jay-Z? Looks like Dad's going to have to share his tiny doppelgänger.

The cute trio stepped out over the weekend to attend the wedding of a friend in New Orleans, Louisiana. Blue Ivy's baby siblings, Rumi and Sir Carter, were noticeably absent from the nuptials. Born in June, the twins might have been with a nanny or family member so Bey, Jay and their oldest could be fully present in the festivities.

The night seemed to be a success for the tight-knit fam as they posed for photos with the bride and groom and tore it up on the dance floor.
