Bear Grylls in dwarfed by lookalike son Marmaduke in rare family snap with wife ... trends now

Bear Grylls shared a rare snap with his lookalike son Marmaduke as the teen celebrated his 18th birthday.

The adventurer, 49, took to Instagram on Wednesday to wish his middle son a happy birthday with two snaps alongside his wife of 24 years Shara Cannings Knight.

Bear, who also has sons Jesse, 20, and Huckleberry, 15, with Shara, captioned the post: '18 today! We love you so much Marmaduke… keep shining bright! ❤️.'

But fans were quick to point out Marmaduke's incredible height - as in both snaps he was seen towering over his parents. 

The first picture showed Marmaduke, who Bear has previously said stands at 6ft4in tall, sporting a long black coat covering a fitted waistcoat, oxford shirt, pinstripe trousers with his hair shaved into a buzz cut.

In the second snap, Marmaduke matched his father with a shirt and vest combo. 

Taking to the comment section of Bear's post for Marmaduke's birthday, fans also marvelled at the size of him. 

They wrote: 'Bear Junior is turning out to be a Grizzly'; 'I think drinking p*** somehow created a super human'; 'Bear Grylls son actually a bear'; 'You must look up to him a lot';

'What are you feeding him?!'; 'Absolute unit get him on that rugby pitch'; 'I think your son is the real bear here. Damn so tall.'

'Oh wow he's so tall. Happy 18th to him'; 'Is he standing on something? Happy Birthday Marmaduke.'  

The Geordie Hiker Garrin French said: 'What you been feeding hike. 18 and already looks incredibly strong.' 

Meanwhile, skier JT Holmes added: 'Definitely outgrew that windbreaker I gave him.' 

The snaps hugely differed from ones shared a year earlier for Marmaduke's 17th birthday.

In one of the pictures shared for his 17th, Marmaduke appeared just a little bit taller than his mother, showing he went through a huge growth spurt in the past year.
