Dani Grier Mulvenna is an Irish mom married to award-winning comedy podcaster Kit Grier Mulvenna. The two have a daughter who might be more famous than her proud parents. In 2022, Dani posted a cute image of her daughter, Cora, smiling broadly. She added a photo of actor Woody Harrelson with the question, “OK but how does our daughter look like Woody Harreslon [sic].” Woody Harrelson and the baby show a remarkable resemblance in the image.

The image of Harrelson is from the movie “Zombieland.” In continuing exchanges on social media, Dani responded, “You’ve made our day. Can’t wait to show her this when she’s older, you have another fan for life xxx.” The proud mom also pointed out that their daughter doesn’t always look like Woody Harrelson, but “when she does, she really, really does.”

One thing is certain: Cora will always be known as the baby that looks like Woody Harrelson. The playful exchanges on social media between this Irish mom and the famous actor are wholesome. Dani accidentally spelled Harrelson’s name wrong in the first tweet. After that, she kept the misspelled version. When someone asked why she kept doing it, she replied that it had become “her thing.”

People will always compare others to celebrities. Woody Harrelson has endeared himself to many fans with his good-natured response to this baby look-alike. We hope that Woody Harrelson and baby Cora can meet in real life someday. If you enjoyed this, please share.
