Catherine Zeta-Jones, 54, and her husband Michael Douglas, 79, have whisked their children off for a Christmas break in India – and fans are loving the insight into their family antics.

The Mask of Zorro actress' recent photos show just how similar her daughter Carys, 20, is growing up to be. Joined by dad Michael and her brother Dylan, 23, in the candid photos from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hampi, India, Carys is pictured pouting and looking every inch like her famous mother.

Another snap from the family's action-packed trip, which has thus far seen them being blessed by elephants, visiting temples and relaxing by the pool, also highlighted the similarities between the pair.

Carys modelled a brown bikini top and went makeup-free in the photograph, looking just like Welsh icon Catherine.

Accompanied by her famous parents, Carys took centre stage at the Michael Kors show during New York Fashion Week in February 2019. From her bold eye makeup to her funky snakeskin print jacket, Carys wasn't afraid to steal the spotlight from her mother.

Michael Kors show

In September of the same year, Catherine and Carys were back at the Michael Kors presentation, serving up some serious smizes. With their long, wavy brown hair and big doe eyes, the mother and daughter looked identical.

 Catherine and Carys previously joined forces for a Town & Country profile in which the A-list actress revealed she was incredibly proud of how well-behaved her two kids are

"What I instilled in my kids, and I’m very, very proud of it, is manners," Zeta-Jones said. "There’s nothing worse than a privileged kid without manners. I drilled it into them like boot camp."
