If you think that Chris Manzo is quite a character, you're apparently not alone.

Chris, son of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo, has posted a photo of his much-younger cousin CJ impersonating him, and the likeness is pretty darn uncanny.

CJ of course is Jacqueline Laurita's son, and he apparently has been around his cousin Chris enough to pick up his mannerisms. 

On October 29, Chris posted a photo of CJ doing the impression at a restaurant.

"CJ doing an impression of his cousin Chris...," Chris captions the Instagram pic.

We love this adorable photo! CJ definitely knows what he's doing as he tilts his head to the side, puts his hands at his waist, and gives a mischievous grin.

This gives us a sense of what Chris might have looked like as a little boy. But if you want an even more accurate sense of what young Chris looked like, check out this funny throwback pic he posted this week of himself and a few pals flexing by the pool back in the day.

Chris and CJ are clearly close and spend a lot of time together. In fact, Caroline and her sons spent time with CJ and his family for Tony Laurita's birthday party on October 24. Caroline even posted a cute pic of Albie bonding with CJ.

Come to think of it, CJ now makes us want to try to impersonate Chris, although we doubt we could top CJ's effort.
