WNBA star Cadance Parker's daughter, Lailaa Nicole Williams, is her mother's mini-me, evident in before and after shots of them together.
The 35-year-old star took to Instagram to show off their resemblance, sharing two pictures of them rocking identical outfits years apart.

The first shot featured the pro basketball player clad in a blue jersey as her then-infant daughter rode happily on her neck. Baby Lailaa looked cute in her matching jersey, which she paired with denim pants.
The second pic showed the mother-daughter duo seated on a neatly mowed grassy patch, showing off charming smiles. They could easily pass for twins in their oversized white button-down shirts and denim shorts. Parker captioned her post:
"Then and Now #FBF Still Twinning, and she's still my absolute BABY!"
Fans could not have enough of the beautiful damsels as they poured out compliments to them while pointing out their resemblance. However, others thought the pre-teen looked more like her dad.
Many expressed hopes that Lailaa would someday grow up to become a pro basketballer just like her mom, considering they already had so much in common.
Parker was undergoing rehab two or three times a day and was on the verge of recovery.
Notably, the Chicago Sky star who also doubles as an NBA studio analyst for TNT has been at the top of her game in the women's basketball league. In addition to her sports career, the athlete is set to dish some parenting nuggets.
She recently announced the launch of her podcast, "Moments With Cadence." The show promises to feature parenting tips and real-life experiences for other moms, including "Sister, Sister" star Tia Mowry.

The NBA star has also been open about the source of her vast parenting knowledge. She disclosed in a 2020 interview that late Tennessee coach Pat Summit informed most of her actions in life, including parenting.
Earlier this month, the mother of one suffered a minor ankle sprain during her team's practice ahead of Chicago Sky's game against Dream. Since the accident, the icon has been in rehabilitation, missing out on the game and other lineups.
Following last week's announcement that Parker would sit out her third straight game in the WNBA season due to her injury, general manager James Wade reassured fans there was no cause for concern.
According to him, Parker was undergoing rehab two or three times a day and was on the verge of recovery. She only missed the playoffs against the Atlanta Dream to guarantee 100 percent recovery.
