Niecy Nash has passed down the acting bug to her daughter, Dia La Ren, who is following in her famous mom's footsteps and the resemblance between the mother-daughter duo is remarkable. 

The 23-year-old actress looks so much like The Rookie: Feds star, fans would be forgiven for confusing the two.

Dia's Instagram page is packed with photos of her posing up a storm in sunny LA. There are also several featuring Niecy and their social media followers adore seeing them together.

When Dia wished her mom a happy birthday recently, Niecy addressed their similarities by commenting: "Thank you mini me," and fans wrote: "Am I seeing double?! Like frfr. HBD to an incomparable lady aka your momma," and, "I mean, she really did say "copy + paste".

Dia caught the acting bug when she featured in her mom's show, Claws, in 2018. She's also appeared in The Rookie: Feds and Niecy's Netflix thriller, Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story

"I was like, 'Girl, I'm more confused now than I was before this. I don't know. If I have to coin it in the moment, I would say I'm Jess-sexual.
