On September 9, 1999, Hollywood stars Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe became parents for the first time when they welcomed their daughter, Ava Elizabeth Phillippe, to the world. Now, more than two decades later, their little girl has blossomed into a talented and outspoken model, who also happens to look like a carbon copy of her mom.
Naturally, Witherspoon couldn’t be happier about their striking resemblance. She told InStyle in 2021, “I love being mistaken for her because it makes me feel so young. I'm so proud of her. She really rolls with it. I'm sure it's not easy looking exactly like your mother.”
The proud mom also gushed about Ava’s “down-to-earth” personality, noting that the 24-year-old “wants to do great things in the world.” Witherspoon added, “She's studying and learning and trying to find herself. It's a big thing in life to try different things and figure out what is really your path.”
