Jennifer Garner rarely shares photos of her two daughters and son but one look at her latest throwback of herself and the resemblance to her offspring is uncanny. 

The Yes Day actress is a proud parent to Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, nine. She and her ex-husband, Ben Affleck, keep them firmly out of the spotlight but even from images from years ago, it's clear the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

When they returned to school in September 2021 after so long at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Violet was headed into high school.
