Reese Witherspoon’s Kids Look So Much Like Her
In addition to being an Oscar winner, the founder of her Draper James lifestyle line and an all-around force in the entertainment industry, Reese Witherspoon is also a mom of three. The 43-year-old Morning Show star has opened up about how becoming a mom at the tender age of 23 was “scary,” but now she’s basically a pro. Did we mention her kids also look alarmingly similar to her? Here, everything you need to know about Reese Witherspoon’s kids, Ava Phillippe, Deacon Philippe and Tennessee Toth.
1. Ava Phillippe
Witherspoon welcomed her firstborn, Ava Elizabeth Phillippe (named for Ava Gardner), on September 9, 1999. At the time, Witherspoon was just getting started in her career and was married to her now ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. She spoke candidly about her experience being a young mom on her Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine YouTube page, saying, “I’ve been a mom since 1999. I got pregnant [with daughter Ava] when I was 22. I delivered when I was 23. To be totally honest, it was scary. I was scared. I didn't know what it was going to do to my job or my career.” Regardless of her new mom status, Witherspoon’s career continued to takeoff.
Phillippe is now 20 years old and a student at University of Berkeley California. In addition to her studies, she has also modeled for her mom’s Draper James line, as well as fashion house Rodarte, and casually appeared in Vogue alongside her mom and grandma. In high school, she made her debut at the iconic Le Bal des Débutantes in Paris and even landed a hostess job at Pizzana restaurant in Los Angeles. Like her mom, she’s very creative. She sketches and creates clay sculptures. She’s also dating fellow Berkeley student, Owen Mahoney.
2. Deacon Phillippe
Witherspoon’s second child with Phillippe arrived on October 23, 2003 (so he’s a Scorpio). Believe it or not, Deacon’s middle name is his mom’s screen name, Reese. (Fun fact: Witherspoon’s actual name is Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon and Reese is her mom’s maiden name). Anyway, Deacon is now 16 and is even driving. My, how time flies! He’s frequently featured on his mom’s Instagram account helping her figure out things like Tik Tok and Fort Nite.
3. Tennessee Toth
Tennessee (middle name James) is Witherspoon’s first child with her now husband, talent agent Jim Toth. The tiny Toth is 6 years old, attending school and, judging from the pics of his birthday, very into Pokemon.
Leave it to Reese to raise the cutest mini-mes.
