Elizabeth Hurley shared a series of throwbacks to celebrate her lookalike son Damian Hurley’s birthday tonight.
The model and actress, 56, has a close relationship with her son, now 20, who has followed in his mother’s footsteps in recent years and has pursued a career in the same industries.
It’s been said that it’s not just their work choices that are similar, as they’re often referred to as doubles – with Damian being the spitting image of Liz.
They are often spotted together in posts on their respective Instagram accounts, with the latest collection of family photos Liz posted tonight for her son’s birthday.
Liz shared a series of photos of Damien – the son of the late business owner Steve Bing – on the social media platform to mark the special occasion today.
The three photos featured a much younger Damien posing alongside his glamorous mum, with the couple cozied up in each of the snaps from their childhood days.
She wrote alongside the photos, “Happy 20th birthday to my little prince.” The caption was previously accompanied by several red heart emojis as part of the post.
It has garnered more than 12,000 likes on the platform and garnered congratulations from her followers in the comments section, including some of her celebrity friends.
Joan Collins wrote: “Hello Damian.” Victoria Ekanoye said: “What a blessing. HBD Damian.” Lizzie Cundy commented, “Happy Birthday to your gorgeous boy.”
Another person wrote: “Love these pics. Happy birthday @damianhurley1.” And one fan said in response to the post, “What a lucky boy to have such a beautiful mum.”

Damian himself responded to his mother’s post with several comments, including sharing a series of heart emojis. He also took the opportunity to write, “I love you.”
