‘My ma AKA Bridget!’: Jen Maguire shares an epic 1980s throwback

First her daughter, now her mum… Jennifer Maguire is keeping it in the family with promotion for her new RTÉ series, Bridget and Eamon.

The actress and comedian shared a brilliant family throwback snap from the Eighties on social media this morning, and now we can see exactly where she got the inspiration for her Bridget costume.

While Mrs. Maguire was no doubt a far better mother than the chain-smoking Bridget, the two definitely share a similar style:

"Just found this old pic. My Ma aka Bridget!! All she needs is the fag and glasses," Jennifer wrote alongside the old Communion Day snap.

And just last month Jen got her baby daughter in on the fun, dressing up little Florence as a mini-Bridget, complete with wig, dressing gown and glasses.

Now all we need is her husband Lau Zamparelli with a ginger wig and bad suit á la Eamon.

Um… maybe not.
