“Blue Bloods” star Sami Gayle looks just like her mom in a latest throwback Instagram post. Like mother, like daughter!

With the holidays approaching, the family photo albums are brought out of hiding. It is nice to flip through the pages to see how far our loved ones have come. Pictures carry memories, as well as show our family resemblances. Sami Gayle shows that she is the spitting image of her mother in her latest Instagram post.

The black and white collage features a selfie of Gayle and an image of her mom. Both are close-ups, and the resemblance is astonishing. Their facial features are exactly alike!

“Like mother, like daughter…” the “Blue Bloods” actress comments. She clearly realizes that she is the spitting image of her mom. Fans agree with the caption, commenting on how beautiful both women look.

“OMG you look so much like her ❤️. And I absolutely loved the fact you posted this awesome photo’s in B&W. #TotalClass” one fan writes.

“Genetics rule,” another says.

We hope to see more side-by-side family photos on Gayle’s feed this week.

Sami Gayle and Bridget Moynahan

The “Blue Bloods” star loves her onscreen family as well. In an interview, Gayle calls actress Bridget Moynahan an “additional mom.” Moynahan plays Erin Reagan, the mother of Nicky Reagan (played by Gayle) in the series. Their relationship feels just as close off-screen.

“Bridget has been like an additional mother, and I am forever indebted to her for showing me what it means to be a gracious, kind, talented, and independent woman,” Gayle tells Glitter. “Watching her over the years has helped me to become a better actor.”

Now that Sami Gayle is no longer on every episode of “Blue Bloods,” their mother-daughter relationship feels more realistic. In the show, Nicky Reagan leaves her family to go to school. Moynahan tells Glamour that she relates to this loss. Being a mother herself, she knows what this kind of grief feels like.

“As much as I miss Sami and those relationships, it’s very realistic because you have that loss, which is a very relatable life situation and a strange reality,” she says. “There’s a grief to [when kids go off to college or to live on their own] that isn’t often addressed. We get to touch upon it.”

While the mother-daughter character duo do not share scenes as much as they used to, Gayle appreciates their time on “Blue Bloods” together. Situations that her character has been in have helped her navigate real-life situations with her own mother.

“I always walk away having gleaned something about a situation I’ve encountered with my actual mom or with foresight as to how to deal with a situation in the future.”
