Like mother like daughter! British actress Kate Beckinsale's daughter Lily grabbed eyeballs after she posted a bikini-clad image on social media, looking just like a carbon copy of her mother.

The teenager shows off extreme body confidence in the candid snap as she poses in a string two-piece against a rugged background for the lenses, in what appears to be an advertorial post. Alongside she wrote, "remember @sofiaamiller, the el rodeo enigma??? she's now the next frankie's bikinis," adding a promo code for her fans.

Unsurprisingly, the 18-year-old Lily's outdoor picture has managed to steal social media's attention with several viewers flocking to the comments section to share raving messages.

"What a stunning girl. I think I have a new #crush," a fan commented on the picture that has received over 7,000 likes so far. "Damn @lily_beckinsale what are you trying to do here girl," another admirer shared.

"OMG! Very sexy and Beautiful," a second user noted, while another couldn't help exclaiming, "Hot damn Lily."

Fans of the Pearl Harbor actress, however, were quick to note the striking similarities between the mother and daughter, as one wrote, "@lily_beckinsale you've definitely followed in your mom's footsteps. Very pretty."

Another fan gushed, "You look like your mother! Y'all both fine," while someone else added, "@Katebeckinsale, I think that Lily is taking wings, beautiful as the mother!!!"

Amid all the appreciative messages, though, some insensitive users went all sexual in the comments section. Thankfully for young Beckinsale, her fans still had her back shutting down all the nasty remarks at once.

"It's a girl in a bikini. Calm the f**k down people. That does not mean you can post rude comments," one critic penned. Another went all sarcastic, saying, "Question : how do get a D-BAG to disrespect a woman ? Answer : post an innocent picture of yourself in a bathing suit, and wait. Grow up you dumb ass little boys !!!!"

Kate, who shares her lookalike daughter with ex-Michael Sheen, is known to share an 'intense relationship' with the teenager.

Opening up about her daughter, she recently told Hello! Magazine, "I'm my mother's only child and Lily is my only child... It's very important that the child has her own personality and her own life, but that's hard for the parent. On the other hand, I text my mother 18 times a day."
