You can’t help but get that warm feeling when looking at pictures of Reese Witherspoon and her daughter Ava Elizabeth Phillippe together.

This duo epitomizes that special mother-daughter relationship. Their genuine warmth, happiness, and care for each other come shining through and no more strongly than in Ava’s recent tribute to her mom Reese on her 46th birthday.

Ava Phillippe, 22 is the daughter of Oscar winner, Reese Witherspoon, and Ryan Phillippe and is the spitting image of her mother. Reese was 23 years old when her daughter Ava was born on September 9, 1999.

During an interview with InStyle, Reese said she loves being mistaken for her daughter as it makes her feel very young, and her daughter is apparently happy to go along with it.

She went on to say, “I’m sure it’s not easy looking exactly like your mother. We talk to Zoë Kravitz a lot. Because she and her mother (Lisa Bonet) look exactly alike, so whenever Ava is frustrated, I go, ‘Call Zoë, text Zoë, she knows what to talk about.’ I mean, that’s another mother-daughter combo that’s like identical twins.”

Reese’s Bright Light

Ava took to Instagram on March the 22nd to wish her mother happy birthday in a message that we are sure touched Reese’s heart.

Beneath a black and white photo of Reese holding flowers, looking anything but 46, she captioned, “With every year, her bright light shines even brighter, and I find even more reasons to love her and a greater appreciation for all that she does. Happy happy birthday to the brilliant, joyful, fiery, thoughtful, and gorgeous woman that I am lucky enough to call my mom.”

Where the Crawdads Sing

And we are sure the icing on the birthday cake was the release of the Where the Crawdads Sing trailer, which Reese shared on her Instagram feed, writing “The gift of all gifts! Thrilled to share the official trailer for @crawdadsmovie, coming to theaters this July.”

Reese first showcased the novel Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens back in September 2018, making it a Reese’s Book Club pick a mere month after it was released.

This film adaptation has been produced by Reese’s company Hello Sunshine and if the trailer is anything to go by, this will be another one of Reese’s many successes.
