The baby cow, named Genie, was born on Friday at a ranch in Kerrville, Texas, and even likes to stick out its tongue like the rocker.
Hill Country Visitor, a tourism agency that promotes the region of Texas Hill, shared the image on Facebook, joking that Simmons could be the father.
KISS frontman Gene Simmons is udderly thrilled by a newborn calf born with strikingly similar black-and-white markings to the face paint he wears on stage.
Simmons tweeted his admiration for the calf on Sunday, saying, “This is real, folks!!!”

Genie was born on a ranch kept by the family of Heather Taccetta, who works at a local steak house.
“Obviously, we can’t serve this fine specimen,” Hill Country Visitor wrote.
Taccetta says the calf and its mother are doing fine and that Genie is a family favorite and won’t be sold for slaughter.
