Lucy Mecklenburgh has shared a gorgeous new photo of her baby boy, Roman, and he is the absolute double of dad, Ryan Thomas.
Three-month-old Roman looked mega cute in his blue and white car-printed baby grow - and he's sporting a cheeky little smile which looks very familiar.
Yep, he's the spitting image of Ryan!
In the snap, Roman can be seen giggling at the camera, with Lucy, 28, captioning the photo: "Happy Saturday" followed by the blue heart emoji.
And followers couldn't get over the resemblance, with one writing: "A mini me of his daddy."

While another commented: "Omg what a beautiful picture of Roman he's the spit of Ryan."
"Gorgeous. He's the image of Ryan," said one fan.
Over the last few months, Lucy has been isolating at home with Ryan, 36 and baby Roman at their home in Essex.
The new mum has been praised for speaking so honestly about motherhood and the struggles she's encountered, especially during the pandemic.
She recently opened up about the difficult side of being a parent, posting a snap on Instagram of her and Roman at four o'clock in the morning.
"I adore my son, every time I look at him I can't believe I made this perfect baby boy and when he smiles & laughs my heart bursts with love, BUT I've really struggled now for 3 months maybe heightened by lockdown," she said.
"Breast feeding I love & hate, it is wonderful for bonding but bloody relentless! Sleepless nights aren't getting any easier there is a reason sleep deprivation is a form of torture."
Lucy continued to explain she had been quieter on social media recently as she didn't want her honesty to be misconstrued into "clickbait headlines".
"Here's the truth... Nights are long & lonely, there are days I don't want to do this anymore & just want a break but I have no choice as I breast feed him every 3 hours so I feel trapped & like my only purpose is a milk machine," she said.
"I'm constantly told to nap when he naps but when then do I eat, shower, pump, reply to texts & emails, do the washing, just have a HOT cup of tea in the garden & feel like a normal human Being for 10mins!!
"I'm so grateful to have a happy, healthy baby boy and wouldn't change it for the world but motherhood is tough the tiredness, tears & mum guilt I don't think I was fully prepared for and I wish more people showed the happy times and the tough times."
Followers were quick to praise Lucy for her honesty, with one calling it "so refreshing and relatable" while hundreds of other parents thanked her for sharing.
