Reese Witherspoon took her lookalike 20-year-old daughter Ava Phillippe out for Sweetgreen salads and shared a photo of it on her Instagram. “Lunch with my girl ?,” she wrote. The photo got over 1 million likes, and several celebrities couldn’t get over how identical they looked in the comments.
“TWINS,” Kacey Musgraves wrote. “Twins!!!!” Gabrielle Union repeated, adding three hearts. “Twinning,” Rita Wilson added. Most of the comments were about that, with some users calling Phillippe her mother’s mini me. Genetics did that.
Phillippe is in her second year of college. She shared a photo on her own Instagram of her mother visiting her. “quick visit from my cute mama ❤️,” Phillippe wrote.
Phillippe is close to both her brothers too and regularly shares photos of her family on her Instagram. She shared a shot of Deacon Phillippe visiting her back in November. “…when did my little brother become one of my best friends? ? #thanksforvisiting,” she captioned the shot of them together.
She has written pretty glowing things about her mom in the past too. “This is the gorgeous woman who taught me about the power of graciousness, love, ambition, and hard work,” she captioned her July 17 tribute to Witherspoon. “She inspires me everyday to live with gratitude for the life I’ve been given and compassion for others. I’m thinking about her a little extra today, that’s all. ?”
For Mother’s Day this year, Phillippe wrote, “My mom always reminds me, ‘pretty is as pretty does,’ and truth be told she is the prettiest woman I know. Happy mother’s day to my built-in best friend. Your drive to pursue your passions, your curiosity and willingness to learn, your care and compassion for others, and your strength to fight for what and who you care about all make me immensely proud to be your daughter. Love you always, Ava ?”
And for Phillippe’s 20th birthday in September, Witherspoon posted a tribute to her, writing, “Watching your little girl grow into a gorgeous, thoughtful, compassionate, fun-loving young woman defies words. It has got to be the greatest gift I could ever receive. I love you @avaphillippe to the moon, around the stars and back! Happy 20th! ?✨?”
