Model, Jillian Hervey (a.k.a. Lion Babe), is her mother's twin! 

On Feb. 6, Vanessa Williams and her daughter, Lion Babe, attended the 7th Annual #KnockOutHeartDisease Campaign Launch at Burlington Union Square in New York City, and we can't help but think we are seeing double.

The 54-year-old actress looked amazing in a red Pamella Roland off-the-shoulder dress, while Lion Babe styled in a chic Mugler 'fit from New York Vintage.

This American Heart Month, the mother-daughter duo dressed up for a good cause to team up with Burlington and WomenHeart to #KnockOutHeartDisease in women and to bring awareness to heart health.

"Such an inspiring day," Lion Babe shared on an Instagram post.

"[I am] proud to have partnered with my bella mama @vanessawilliamsofficial along with @burlingtonstyle & @womenheart to raise awareness for HEART HEALTH! ❤️ my great grandmothers suffered and died from heart disease, so the topic is near and dear to me and my lineage," she confessed.

She then continued with a friendly warning, "Ladies! It's the NUMBER 1 killer for women especially black women! We need to inform each other and protect one another! Screenings are super accessible and convenient! Head to burlingtonstores.com/hearthealth to learn more! Cheers to the champions aka wonder women who shared their stories or survival!"

We couldn't agree more!

As for the ladies, it's always beautiful to see women come together for a good cause, especially when it's mother and daughter!
