Chrissy Teigen shared a picture of herself as a kid and she looks exactly like Selena Gomez

It's fair to say that Chrissy Teigen is known as the Queen of Instagram for a good reason - she always looks her best. Indeed, the world-famous model never has so much as a stray eyelash or hair out of place, and has become an inspirational figure for her many millions of social media followers as a result of her stunning good looks. But was she always this way? Plenty of people have been left wondering what Chrissy looked like as a kid. Was she a spotty child? Did she have scabby knees and a bad posture? Did she need braces? Or was she always this graceful and cute?

Thankfully, this week Chrissy decided to share an adorable throwback photo of herself as a child, standing outside in the sun with a great big grin on her face. However, the main thing that intrigued most of Chrissy's fans was the fact that her younger self bore an uncanny resemblance to Selena Gomez, and looking closely at the picture, you can easily see that the two of them look damn similar.

Fans were quick to rinse Chrissy about the strange resemblance on social media. For example, one Instagram follower of hers wrote: "I was wondering why you posted a childhood picture of Selena."

Someone else added: "I thought that was Selena Gomez at first glance! LOL [sic]."

Meanwhile, a third stated: "It took me five looks to realize this was Chrissy and not Selena Gomez."

To be fair, Selena Gomez did take a pretty big break from Instagram last year, so it makes sense that her fans would start seeing her elsewhere. However, recently the songstress finished with her Instagram hiatus, and posted a selfie with the caption: "It’s been a while since you have heard from me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to thank you for your love and support. Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges and growth. It’s always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming. Trust me, it’s not easy, but I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead. Love you all."

Chrissy isn't the only celebrity sharing throwback photos this week. Ariana Grande was nice enough to share an adorable picture of herself as a little girl on Twitter. Suffice to say, her social media fans were overjoyed by the picture of the toddler version of Ariana; although you have to squint to make sure it's her, as she looks completely different without her signature ponytail.

However, there's no denying that she was a really cute tot. Ariana captioned the picture: "If i’m honest ..... this is still exactly what i look like without lashes and my pony ..... anyone who knows me knows me knows ..... like .... i’m twenty five. i was five here. the only difference now is that hand now says bbq grill finger [sic]."
