Reese Witherspoon and her daughter, Ava Phillippe, look so much alike, it’s uncanny! The actress welcomed her eldest child with her first husband, Ryan Phillippe, in September 1999, and they’ve been twinning ever since.
“I do see the resemblance. She’s a beautiful person inside and out. She’s just a good soul. I’m not sure what she thinks. I’m just ‘Mom’ to her,” Reese previously told Vanity Fair. “I really have a rich, personal relationship with my daughter. I have a really great career, and it’s nice to be able to share it with my kids.”
Even though the duo can easily tell themselves apart, it’s a lot harder for the fans. “People come up to her [all the time]. We were at a premiere and they were congratulating her on her performance,” Reese jokingly recalled to E! News. “She’s like, ‘I’m not in the movie!'”
But even though Ava doesn’t want to be an actress like her mom, she’s “very supportive” of the Legally Blonde star’s career. In fact, the pink-haired beauty joined her mother on the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of Big Little Lies in February 2017. She also didn’t miss the New York showing of BLL season two in May 2019 either.
“She inspires me every day to live with gratitude for the life I’ve been given and compassion for others,” Ava previously gushed about her mom on Instagram. “This is the gorgeous woman who taught me about the power of graciousness, love, ambition, and hard work.”
Ava’s post was so beautiful that Reese left a sweet comment. She said, “How did I get so lucky to have a daughter like you?” Of course, that was an easy question to answer because one fan said, “you are an amazing mother,” and we couldn’t agree more.
