Winners of the annual Jennings Daily News Just Like Dad Father’s Day Look Alike contest have been selected by the public, and father and daughter Stuart Daigle, 26, and Miley Daigle, 4, emerged victorious.

Stuart said he was interested in the contest because people often approach him and his daughter on the street, telling them how much they look alike.

“People tell me we look alike all the time, nearly everywhere we go,” Stuart said.

Stuart said what he enjoys most about being a dad is the quality time spent between him and his daughter.

“I just love playing with her, going to the park with her and having her hug and love on me,” he said.

Miley’s mother, Kimberlin Daigle, 26, said her daughter and Stuart have a close relationship.

“They love each other very much, and she’s always wanting her daddy,” Kimberlin said. “He works offshore but whenever he comes home, she’s ready for him.”

Stuart said the family’s Father’s Day plans now include spending their winnings at local restaurants.

The contest gave the public the opportunity to submit a picture of a father with his lookalike child, which would then be rated by a panel of judges to determine the top four look-alikes from all submissions. The winning duo was selected after a period of voting, which was open to all members of the public.

As winners, Stuart and Miley received a free oil change from Bubba Oustalet Ford; a $20 gift card from Bourbon Street Cafe; a cervical pillow courtesy of Jeff Davis Chiropractic Clinic; $100 in gift cards from Tokyo Japan; and a $25 gift certificate from Regatta.
