Every true Keeping Up with the Kardashians fan knows that there is an unsung hero of the bunch. No. We’re not talking about Kris, or Khloé, or even North West (though they all have their merits). We’re talking about Kris’s mother, Mary Jo (“MJ”) Shannon. She’s a quiet-yet-sturdy presence at many a family gathering, and somehow remains above the fray of the many family dramas. And it turns out one of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters is basically MJ’s twin. A recent throwback photo has revealed that Kendall Jenner is the spitting image of her grandmother—and who knew?
The revelation occurred when Kim Kardashian posted a photo of MJ to her Instagram feed, writing, “I just found this pic of my beautiful grandma MJ at her 1st wedding. It lasted just 2.5 months and her family spent all they had on this wedding. She felt so bad but followed her heart. Kinda sounds familiar lol She’s always taught me to follow my heart and do what I want to do no matter what! I love you MJ”.
Here’s some photos of Kendall for comparison:
And for those who may have forgotten (we wouldn’t blame you), Kim was referencing her own short-lived marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries in her post. The couple famously married in a lavish ceremony in 2011, only to announce their split after 72 days. We guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
