The Pitt family genes are clearly very strong: in a new photo posted to Instagram, fans are shocked at how much Vivienne, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's 14-year-old daughter, looks like her paternal grandfather, William Pitt.

The photo was posted by the official Dear Evan Hansen account, the Tony award-winning musical currently on Broadway in New York and also touring at Philadelphia’s Forrest Theatre. Vivienne, one of Angelina’s six children with Brad, attended the show in Philly with her mother and the two are seen posing for a shot alongside Anthony Norman, who plays the title role in the current iteration of the theater production.

Fans quickly took to the comments section to express their opinions on the photo.

"She looks like Brad's dad to me," one user commented, referring to Vivienne’s 81-year-old paternal grandfather William.

Another fan called out Vivienne's resemblance to Brad himself while others mentioned her looking like Noah Schnapp, the 17-year-old actor known for playing Will Byers on the Netflix phenomenon series Stranger Things.

Angelina has been recently seen spending one-on-one time with her kids. Last month, for example, she attended a concert in Rome with daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt  and fans were shocked at how much the two look alike. 

A few weeks ago, the actor posted a series of photos to Instagram to celebrate her eldest daughter Zahara's admittance to Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia. 

"Zahara with her Spelman sisters! Congratulations to all new students starting this year," Angelina wrote on the social media platform. "A very special place and an honor to have a family member as a new Spelman girl."

Angelina was also spotted rocking Valentino PJs while arriving at Heathrow Airport in London with her son Pax.

Despite finalizing their divorce back in October of 2005, the former celebrity couple is still making headlines as Angelina Jolie's FBI lawsuit against ex Brad Pitt becomes public.

In fact, 47-year-old Angelina has just been revealed as the plaintiff in an anonymous 2016 lawsuit against 58-year-old Brad, in which she alleged to have been assaulted by her then-husband on a private plane.

Puck (opens in new tab) reports that, "several years ago," Angelina approached an FBI agent and told him that Brad had "physically and verbally" assaulted her and their kids while they were on a private jet. 

Here's to hoping we'll see less of the drama and more of the mother-children time across headlines in coming months.
