One little girl has become an overnight viral sensation after Rihanna shared her picture on Instagram. Why did she share it? Because this 7-year-old looks just like the pop star. “Almost drop my phone. How?” the singer wrote on Instagram in a post sharing her young doppelganger’s image.
The photo has been liked more than 7 million times, with many asking who the young child is. “Hi, Rihanna, I look just like you,” 7-year-old Ala’a Baytops told Inside Edition. Ala’a’s mom said she has always been told she looks like Rihanna.
Some Instagram followers actually thought the photo was of Rihanna playing around with some snapchat filters or faceapp, etc.
“Lol I thought Rihanna used the baby filter,” one fan wrote.
