Rihanna was left in shock after seeing a snap of a child who bore an uncanny resemblance to her.
The stunned singer, 31, shared the image of young ‘Honeyy’ real name Ala’a, writing in the caption: “Almost drop my phone. How?’
At first Rihanna didn’t appear to know who the youngster was, but it wasn’t long before internet sleuths had uncovered her mum Bria Kay’s profile, who shared that her daughter had her own page with nearly 14,000 followers.
Six-year-old Ala’a made millions of Rihanna’s followers do a double take at just how much she looked like the Fenty Beauty CEO.

“I thought this was the start of the face app young challenge,” one person wrote while others called her a “mini RiRi”.
“So this aint you with the baby filter?” asked another confused fan.
“Did you use an APP? bc this is freakin me out,” said one.

Others took the opportunity to ask Rihanna for her ninth album joking: “Girl you gave birth to a whole ass child and you still didn’t drop the album.”
Rihanna tagged Ala’a’s mum Bria in her original post, and she shared how thankful she was for the singer sharing her daughter’s image.
On her daughter’s page she wrote: “Thank you @badgalriri for posting my picture! I’ve always wanted to be a model!”

Bria’s page is littered with images of her six-year-old daughter which many of her followers have repeatedly tagged Rihanna in, but it’s only been now that she noticed the surprising resemblance.
Even America’s Next Top Model creator Tyra Banks got in on the act begging for people to help her find the youngster.
It’s surely only a matter of time before Ala’a will reach superstardom thanks to RiRi’s help.
