It may be hard to believe that the reigning queen of pop is already 57, but with her daughter turning 19 today, Madonna reminds us of how much time has passed, and how quickly.

The musical legend took a break from posting her concert pictures to shares two photos to Instagram on the occasion of her eldest-born, Lourdes “Lola” Leon’s 19th birthday.

Madonna’s first post was a black-and-white image of her daughter cuddling up to her, with the caption, “Happy Birthday to the most Precious Girl in the World! Love You 4 Ever [sic].” She added the hashtag, “rebelheart,” in honor of her thirteenth studio album with the same title. The superstar is also currently on her Rebel Heart tour and will be busy performing until March next year.


The second post was a collage of three old pictures showcasing a rather youthful-looking Madonna cradling a young Lourdes as a toddler. Written in the caption with the image was, “Happy Birthday Little Star. Never Forget Who you are!”

Shared two hours apart, both of the sweet posts received around 69,000 likes each. Many fans commented to join in wishing the teen a happy birthday, with some even calling the mother-daughter duo twins, given Lourdes’ striking resemblance to her famous mother when she was in her 20s.

And it seems that we may really have another Madonna in the making—Lourdes already has the look with her dyed silver hair and nose ring. She’s also attending her mother’s Alma mater, the University of Michigan, where she’s reportedly studying dance, music, and theater. She graduated last year from New York’s prestigious La Guardia School of Performing Arts.
