Here's Why Young Daya On OITNB Looks Just Like Dascha Polanco!

In Season 5 of Orange Is the New Black, fans gain some more insight into the relationship between Daya (Dascha Polanco) and her mom, Aleida (Elizabeth Rodriguez).

But fans are freaking out over how much the actress that plays young teenage Daya looks like Dascha Polanco! 

Well the explanation for that... it's Polanco's daughter!

Yes, her 15-year-old daughter, Dasany Kristal Gonzalez, is the actress who plays young Daya. And they are basically twins! If you are wondering how Polanco (who looks so young herself) could have a teenage daughter, you're not alone. The 34-year-old actress gave birth to her daughter when she was 18-years-old.

"She's a blessing, a miracle baby," she told Latina magazine in 2015. However, she did admit she wouldn't encourage others to have kids at such a young age. "Nothing's wrong with it, it just makes it a little bit more challenging."
