Una Healy took to Instagram over the weekend to share an adorable snap of her mini-me, Aoife Belle. The post shows Una's five-year-old daughter smiling at the camera after playing dress up with her mum. Una, 36, wrote: "She asked me 'Mummy can I wear a little bit of makeup and play dress up later' and I had to agree… so happy to see this beautiful smile again #onthemend #girlytime."

Little Aoife Belle certainly needed cheering up after suffering "an unfortunate freak accident" last week. "She tripped and chipped a bone in her elbow that ended up requiring surgery," Una explained in an Instagram post, describing her daughter as a "brave little trooper," and thanking "the fantastic care staff at Northampton General Hospital and Children's A&E" for their "kindness and care".

Many fans picked up on the incredible likeness between Una and her little one, with one follower writing "wow spitting image!" and another commenting "Mammy's little clone x". Aoife Belle bears a striking resemblance to Una, sharing her mum's stunning blue-green eyes and long locks. Even their smiles and dimples are identical!

The Saturdays star and her rugby union player husband Ben Foden also share an adorable son Tadhg John, two, who they introduced exclusively to HELLO! back in 2015. Una often shares photos of her beautiful family on social media. Earlier this year, she captioned one sweet shot of doting dad Ben with Tadhg: "Daddy's boy." The Irish singer has previously revealed she does not plan on having any more children. Since her time in the popular girlband The Saturdays, Una has released a solo album, The Waiting Game, and has been a judge on The Voice of Ireland, the Irish version of the singing show.
