Like mother, like daughter.

When Sunrise star Edwina Bartholomew welcomed her daughter, Molly, in December last year, we were instantly smitten.
We can hardly imagine how the 37-year-old feels.
With bright blue eyes, plump cheeks and gorgeous strawberry blonde hair, it's always a delight when Edwina shares a new snap of her darling bub.
The latest pic, however, has followers even more enamoured, with Edwina sharing a side-by-side comparison to her own baby photo, playing with the very same building blocks.

"Same age. Same blocks. 37 years between photos," Edwina captioned the two photos.
"Celebrating eight months of silly songs and wide eyed wonder this week.
"Sitting up. Chit chatting. Growing an impressive comb over. All in a day's work, Miss Molly xx"
Cuteness overload aside, it's the uncanny resemblance that has us doing a double take – along with friends and followers.
"Mini you!!! 😍😍😍," Channel 10 presenter Sarah Harris commented.
"Wow the likeness is unreal 💕💕," another follower agreed.

"I have a bit of an announcement myself," Edwina told her colleagues David Koch, Sam Armytage and Natalie Barr live on air.
"The girls already know but Kochie surprise, surprise – we're having a baby."

Edwina and Neil then confirmed the news: "Late like her mum, tall like her dad and already an early riser."

Having welcomed Molly and settled into parenthood amid the tragic bushfires and then the COVID pandemic, Edwina admitted it had "been such a strange summer to become a new parent."
Chatting to The Australian Women's Weekly she reflected on the first few months as a first-time mum.
"I've found it really comforting that, when the world is chaotic outside, the day to day of being a mum doesn't change.
"No matter who you are or where you live or what you do for a living, the experience of loving a baby is universal. We are changing nappies, worrying about sleep, cleaning up baby dribble. It's the same for everyone."
