'Almost dropped my phone': Rihanna's mini-me sends internet into frenzy

Rihanna is arguably one of the most recognisable musicians in the business, but a child could be set to steal her thunder - and maybe her 'Umbrella' to boot.

The 31-year-old Barbadian songstress and entrepreneur shared a photo of her child doppelganger to Instagram on Tuesday, captioning the image of the little girl: "Almost drop my phone. How?" 

The girl, whose name is unknown, bears a striking resemblance to the star. The picture was originally uploaded by the girl's mother, who commented on Rihanna's post: "Awww that's my baby".

A number of celebrities have expressed their shock at the 'Love On The Brain' hitmaker's little lookalike.

"Wow?!" Actress and model Priyanka Chopra commented.

"When did you have a baby?" Snoop Dogg commented. Everyone already knows you "smoke weed every day", Snoop.

Tyra Banks jumped straight into America's Next Top Model mode, posting a public plea for information about the girl.

"S.O.S. Please someone help me identify [Rihanna's] fierce, fresh face mini-me!" she wrote.

The frenzy generated a sizeable amount of new followers for the mother's public Instagram account, which features a number of pictures of her daughter.

Rihanna's post has since garnered over six million likes.

With Tyra Banks already thinking modelling contracts and the attention of millions across the world, if she puts in the work, work, work - this kid could just be the next big thing.
