Time sure does fly! Iconic actress Reese Witherspoon’s daughter, Ava Phillippe, is turning 18 years old on Sept. 9, and her famous mom can’t believe her little girl’s first “adult” birthday is right around the corner!
In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Reese opened up about her daughter, which can be seen in the video below! The 41-year-old actress proudly gushed about her lookalike growing older.
Reese gave birth to Ava when she was just 23 years old, nearly 10 years after her first film role. The actress seems pretty lenient when it comes which of her movies she wouldn’t want her children to see. “I mean all of them are a labor of love and effort that you put into them,” she said. “So I’m very proud of the fact that I’ve worked a lot in my life.”
The Sweet Home Alabama star previously welcomed Ava with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe — and ever since people have been calling the two twins! “People come up to her [all the time]. We were at a premiere and they were congratulating her on her performance,” Ava once revealed. “She’s like, ‘I’m not in the movie!'”
And Reese couldn’t agree more. “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,” she said. “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.” Too cute!
