The resemblance between Sophia Loren and her granddaughter is becoming increasingly noticeable as the latter grows older. Despite the age difference of over 70 years, the genetic similarity between the two is undeniable.

Sophia Loren rose to fame at a young age after participating in the Miss Italia beauty pageant in 1950 when she was only 15 years old. She has since become an iconic actress and a legend in the entertainment industry, even at the age of 88.

In contrast, her granddaughter has grown up in a world surrounded by filmmaking and acting. At just 16 years old, she has already developed a striking resemblance to her famous grandmother.

Sophia Loren has expressed that her family is very important to her. In a 2016 interview with Al Roker on Today, she said, “I live for my family. I have the most beautiful grandchildren that I’ve ever seen in my life. I’m happy! I live a wonderful life.”

Sophia has two children, Carlo Ponti Jr. and Edoardo Ponti, who followed in their mother’s footsteps by pursuing careers in the entertainment industry. Edoardo is a director and is married to American actress Sasha Alexander, who frequently posts about their children, Lucia and Leonardo, on Instagram.

Sophia’s eldest grandchild, Lucia, was born on May 12, 2006, in Geneva, Switzerland, outside of Italy where Sophia is originally from. Lucia will turn 17 years old this summer.

Sophia was married to Carlo Ponti Sr., her longtime husband, and father of her children, from 1966 until his death in 2007.

On Instagram, Sasha frequently shares updates about her children, Lucia and Leonardo, remarking on how quickly they are growing up. She also regularly expresses pride in her children, posting heartfelt wishes for them.

Recently, on Lucia’s 15th birthday, Sasha shared a photo of the two of them together and wrote a sweet message in the caption, praising her daughter’s resilience and sense of humor. Despite her young age, Lucia bears a striking resemblance to her famous grandmother, with expressive eyes and a dazzling smile.

The caption read: “Happy Birthday to our Lucia! 15 today! She is taller than me, definitely more organized, a thinker, a dancer, and a super funny human. What a difficult year it has been for all kids, but I must say I learned so much from Lucia and how she joyfully moved through it all. Bravo our love! Keep doing what you’re doing and never stop calling me girly pop.”
