Move over Ashley – it appears that Mary-Kate Olsen has a new twin of her own.
The 26-year-old fashion designer and her new boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy, 42, enjoyed a day out in New York with his young daughter last Thursday.
As Mary-Kate smoked cigarettes, the half brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, placed his arms around his two girls who appear to be the same height.

The daughter, whose name and age are unknown, is the child of the investment banker's former wife Charlotte Bernard, whom he divorced in 2010.
As they strolled through New York's trendy West Village neighbourhood together, Mary-Kate chatted to the young brunette girl who seemed at ease in her company.
Mary-Kate kept her sunglasses on during the day and even into the evening before the group went for dinner in the West Village.
During dinner, she was spotted indulging in another cigarette as she sat on the footpath outside the restaurant.

Mr Sarkozy was also spotted smoking a cigarette as he clung onto his daughter's hand and kept his other arm on Mary-Kate's shoulder.
Ms Bernard is not likely to be impressed by the outing as she spoke out about her disapproval over her ex-husband's new relationship earlier this month.
Branding their union as 'grotesque', she told the National Enquirer that it was also 'not right'.
An insider also told the magazine:
'Charlotte certainly won't want her kids to be around Mary-Kate, who
has a history of wild-partying and booze binges.'
