    This is not true, the primary and secondary sexual characteristics are much more similar between father and son, or mother and daughter. :rofl:

    I think daughter is look like her aunt(father's sister) & boy is look like his uncle(mather's brother).

    I seem to recall hearing that people tended to choose people that looked like their mothers or fathers.

    I did note this, but it doesn’t apply to all. I guess it depends
