Barbra Streisand recently revealed to Variety that two of her dogs are clones of her late pooch Samantha.

The legendary performer told Variety she wanted a picture with her three dogs to be captioned "Send in the Clones." The play on words was about more than her dogs' close resemblance.

Two of her dogs, Miss Violet and Miss Scarlett, came from the cells of Samantha, a coton du tulear who died in 2017, Variety reported.

“They have different personalities,” Streisand told Variety. “I’m waiting for them to get older so I can see if they have her (Samantha’s) brown eyes and seriousness.”

Her third dog is a distant cousin of Samantha, Variety reported.
