Sheryl Lee Ralph's daughter, Ivy-Victoria is all grown, and in a new video shared by the actress, she could pass for her mum's twin.

To show her followers how she is celebrating Easter, the 63-year-old mother took to her Instagram page to post a short video clip that featured herself and her look-alike daughter dancing to Fergie's Glamorous.

In the footage, the two, while applying make-up, mouth-off the lyrics to the song. The duo was dressed in matching white robes and headscarves. Sheryl captioned the post: 

"#QuarantineKaraoke with my mini me @ivycoco23. Welllll, this is what getting dressed to go to the livingroom looks Iike."


Fans of the "Dreamgirls" star took to the comments section to compliment the mother-daughter duo.

The famous film and television actress, Sheryl, is a proud mother to twin boy, Maurice, and twin girl, Ivy, who is a younger version of the actress.

Asides being her mother's dance partner and look-alike, Ivy is also a lifestyle blogger. The 25-year old runs her blog site, where she discusses black travel, style, food, and culture.

The blogger recently featured in Christin Bela's docu-series talking about how her upbringing in a West-Indian and French/West-African household allowed her to explore what it means to be black from different parts of the world.

Ivy shared a snippet of the video on Instagram, encouraging her followers to watch the documentary.

In her caption, she alludes her interests in African culture to her parents' teaching of understanding that "there is power in creating and understanding your own narrative."



Taking a closer look into the life and works of the famous actress, Sheryl, and her two children, the mother, always shows that they are her biggest inspiration.

In her mother's day message four years ago on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show, the singer emotionally remarked in her message to all the mothers out there irrespective of how they became mothers saying:

"I {Sheryl Lee Ralph} know the work that you {mothers} put in"

In an interview with Inquirer, the actress also said, "I {Sheryl Lee Ralph} just might kill somebody for my children, so don't mess with my children" when she explained how she is a lot like her mom character, Rose in the CBS sitcom "Fam."

The Inquirer reports that the mother of two commutes between Los Angeles, where she works, and her home in Philadelphia, which she shares with husband, State Senator Vincent Hughes.

The “Moesha” star's life as a commuter might, however, not be ending soon as ABC studios recently announced Sheryl as a lead in its family restaurant drama pilot "Harlem's Kitchen."

The series is an ensemble family drama set in a fine dining restaurant in Harlem, and yet again, Ralph plays a devoted wife and caring mother.
