Mum’s mini-me! Scout looks identical to her mama.

“Scout is very affectionate, very intuitive and displays amazing compassion. If I’m ever having a hard day, she runs up and grabs my face in her two little hands. She can make everything peaceful and Zen with one simple gesture,” Jess says of her daughter.

“She’s constantly teaching me patience, which is something I have to work hard at. She also teaches me to see the potential in life,” Jess told Elle recently.

The actress and Chrys share a kiss goodbye.
