Clearly, celebrity mini-mes are having a modeling moment. There’s the endless wealth of supermodels in the Foster/Hadid family, Ireland and Hailey Baldwin, and of course, breakout stars Lily-Rose Depp, and Kaia Gerber who just landed the cover of Vogue Paris alongside her mom Cindy Crawford. And now, die-hard fans of Melrose Place can rejoice, because there’s a new celeb offspring making her first foray into fashion: Heather Locklear‘s Daughter Ava Sambora.

Much like Cindy, Locklear still doesn’t look like she’s aged a day since the 90s and still has the rabid collection of fanboys to prove it. But now the actress might have to watch out for her doppelgänger daughter who looks poised to steal away her blonde bombshell title.

The 18-year-old daughter of Locklear and rocker Richie Sambora posed beachside in Malibu on Monday, wearing a yellow lace-up, off-the-shoulder bikini and brandishing a bottle of 138 Water, the company she appears to be modeling for. She later changed into an assortment of multi-colored crocheted swimsuits that prove the California beach babe genes run strong in this family. If that Baywatch revamp is looking for any extra lifeguards, we think we may have found your girl.

What do you think of Ava Sambora’s first big modeling job? Do you think she’s following in her mom’s footsteps?
