“We found the picture and just decided that we were gonna do it over again just for memories,” she told Inside Edition.
“I was all for it,” she added. “Me and my dad just have that kind of relationship. He's my best friend.”
Social media went crazy over the photo, where it has been shared more than 14,000 times on Twitter and liked more than 63,000 times.
Many pointed out how her dad has apparently not aged a day since the original photo.
“I've never gotten that many compliments or questions about my skincare,” he joked.
