The thing about celebrity doppelgängers is that you probably have to do several double takes if you see one. Is that Ariana Grande or a 21-year-old Alexxa Morgan from California? Are you really looking at Evan Rachel Wood or is it just Avril Lavigne? But what happens if you are an A-lister and have not one, but two lookalikes? That’s exactly what has happened with Selena Gomez.

A few months ago, the internet went wild when it discovered the “Wolves” singer had a doppelgänger in 22-year-old Sofia Solares.

Back in 2015, Gomez fans confused Doniya Malik — yes, that would be Zayn Malik ‘s older sister — with the singer, which thus began the question: Are Selena and Zayn related?

Yet, we can’t help but wonder: Has Zayn ever noticed this connection between his girlfriend’s sister’s ex-boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend?
