The Honest Beauty founder shared the photo on Friday evening ahead of the election results with the caption, “Waiting for that count to come in…. ✊🏽✊🏼✊🏾✊🏿✊🏻 mood #fbf -9 yr old me 😜 #LatinX #Latina #wegotthis #blm #Equality #opportunity #sisepuede.” The picture features Alba as a kid with light brown hair, nearly-blunt bangs, and big, curious brown eyes, which she still boasts to this day.
No surprise here: Fans and fellow celebrities flooded the post’s comment section with messages like: “the cutest!” “Always a beauty! 💕” and ” Same 🙋🏻♀️.” It’s also worth noting that some folks are saying Alba looks like a young Angelina Jolie in the photo — likely because they both have quite large lips. Additionally, others are comparing nine-year-old Alba to her two-year-old son Hayes, as well as Haven, who is her youngest daughter.
Now, of course, we know that Joe Biden has won the 270 electoral votes needed to secure victory and is projected to be the 46th president of the United States (insert sigh of relief here). Thus, we can only imagine that Alba is doing a major happy dance with her adorable family now that the official numbers are in.
Here’s hoping the actor shares even more throwback moments with us down the line. In the meantime, though, we’ll be here celebrating Biden’s projected win just as we know Alba is.
