Jennifer Garner had her fans in hysterics on Wednesday when she shared a hilarious throwback baby photo on Instagram.

The Peppermint star posted a photo of herself as a baby, fast asleep in the back of a car, but as if that wasn’t entertaining enough, she then posted a picture of herself fast asleep as an adult - and she's still got the same pout. 

Jennifer simply captioned the photo with several zzzz's making reference to her catnap. She wrote "how it started" above her baby image and "how it's going" over the other.
