As the Faceapp madness continues, you'd think we'd be used to seeing celebs looking outside of their usual age range. But one image posted on Instagram this weekend has blown everyone's minds. The reason? It seems that it was taken without the use of Faceapp at all.
One Insta-mom known as Bria Kay has long been posting snaps of her (undeniably cute) daughter. But one picture went viral this weekend for a pretty bizarre reason. It looks exactly (and some would say "suspiciously") like a baby Rihanna.
The star herself reposted the image - and now the internet has some theories about how this mini-doppelganger came to be.
Over the past week, a certain app has taken over the internet.
And celebs have really leaned in to the trend.
While Rihanna didn't post an image on herself, she didn't escape the Faceapp treatment.
via: FaceappLast week, this image of the star circulated looking more like a rock 'n' roll grandma than her usual flawless self.
But now, a certain image has had the whole internet double-taking.And the reason? In spite of much internet suspicion, the image is not altered with the famous app. In fact, it's a much more bizarre optical illusion.
It comes from this mom's Instagram account.
Here they are together.
Well, maybe not.
Because people have pointed out a similarity.Thie child bears a striking resemblance to a certain singing superstar and entrepreneur.
But there's one snap that has really sent the internet wild.

That this image was just another clever example of photo-editing trickery.
@rihanna Did you use an APP? bc this is freakin me out— Voluptuous ♈️ (@Voluptuous ♈️)1563912015.0
The internet had some pretty hilarious reactions.Some took the opportunity to joke about Rihanna's impressive (and ever-expanding) business empire.
Another suspected that the child may be an actually Fenty relative.

Others went for this classic Ririr critique.

But some fans are hopeful.Hey, if there's a new Rihanna, at least we have double the chance to get some new music, right?
Here's the picture that got everybody talking.
And, you know how, normally, you never see the similarities between you and your supposed "lookalike?"
