Reese Witherspoon has delighted her fans by sharing a photo of her lookalike daughter Ava Phillippe on Instagram.
The 44-year-old actress admitted she is “obsessed” with her 20-year-old daughter and it is easy to see why as she is almost identical to her famous mother.
Ava is currently studying at UC Berkeley and is the also the daughter of Reese’s ex Ryan Phillippe.
Captioning the photo of her blonde-haired offspring, Reese was gushing over her as she wrote: “I know she’s my kid but I’m pretty much obsessed @avaphillippe”.
Wearing a red blouse that was emblazoned with white polka dots and a beige cardigan, Ava was very much her mother’s girl as they seemed to enjoy a lunchtime date together.
The resemblance to Reese didn’t go unnoticed in the comments to the photo and there were plenty of famous names adding there thoughts to the thread.
Actress Julianne Moore wrote: “Beautiful.”
While Kate Hudson kept it simple by posting a heart emoji.
Writer and producer Austin Channing Brown hit the nail on the head as he spoke for a number of people in saying: “I sincerely thought this was you!”
Little Fires Everywhere star Reese spoke out earlier this year about how she related to the book that the show was based upon and how she had been dealing with motherhood.
Speaking to Emmy Magazine, Reese said: “It’s so difficult to articulate what motherhood means, and there are so many passages in the novel that did.”
Turning to the Celeste Ng book, Reese revealed how the text spoke to her: “[One passage was about] training yourself to live on the smell of an apple alone, when what you really wanted was to devour it, to sink your teeth into it and consume it, seeds, core, and all.
“It’s such a vivid way to describe the loss of your children as they grow up.”
Reese explained why this hit home so hard, saying: “My daughter was applying for college back then, so it hit me like an arrow in the heart.”
