David Beckham's mother, Sandra, turned 68 on Monday, and he decided to wish her a happy birthday by sharing a photo of the two of them from his teen days.

When the now-retired soccer star was still just a boy, he looked a whole lot like his oldest boy does now — 18-year-old son Brooklyn.

Seriously, it's like seeing double!
