Heather Locklear’s daughter is a stunner just like her mama. Eighteen-year-old Ava Sambora recently made her bikini modelling debut, proving she’s all grown up.

Sambora, who is the only child of Locklear and former Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, made headlines on Monday when she posed for a bikini photo shoot in Malibu, California. With her long, blonde locks and big, round eyes, we couldn’t help but draw comparisons to her famous mom.

Locklear also modelled before she her roles on "TJ Hooker" and "Dynasty."

Since Sambora’s photos hit the internet, fans on social media have been quick to gush about how gorgeous the teen has become.

For reference, here’s a throwback photo of Sambora and her mother back in the day:


And here’s what she looks like now:

In response to the positive attention she’s received from her bikini photos, the teen cheekily wrote on Twitter, “I got it from my mama.”

But good looks aren’t the only thing the 18-year-old inherited from Locklear. A few years ago, Sambora followed in her mom’s footsteps when she tried her luck at acting and cameoed in the film “This Is 40” and the TV show “Good Luck Charlie.”

Now the teen, who is a student at Loyola Marymount University, has turned to modelling. Before her bikini photo shoot, Sambora appeared on the cover of Modeliste in 2015. Locklear was so proud that she posted an image of the cover on Instagram and wrote, “The power of Ava.”

The teen isn't the only celebrity kid to pursue modelling. Cindy Crawford's daughter Kaia, David and Victoria Beckham's son Brookyln and Jude Law's son Rafferty have all already made their modelling debut.
