To mark the milestone, the Little Fires Everywhere actress shared a series of posts on her personal Instagram account, including an adorable baby pic and a stunning new selfie. Witherspoon kicked off the birthday tributes with the black-and-white TBT, featuring her daughter eating cake while sporting a birthday hat that reads, “Party Princess.”

She captioned the post, “This person is turning 22 today… @avaphillippe.” Hours later, Witherspoon followed up with another heartfelt message. Only this time, the image showcased a recent photo of Phillippe smiling in front of a gold background.
“Happy Birthday to my sweet little girl…excuse me… I mean my adult daughter!!!” the caption read. “Words can’t describe how proud I am of you. You have grown into an extraordinary person who cares so much about the world around her. I am so lucky to have you light up my life. I love you, Ava!! @avaphillippe #thisis22.”
And we (as well as the rest of the internet) couldn’t help but notice the striking similarities between this mother-daughter duo. Not only do the two women have the same hair color, but they also have the same face shape, eyes and smile.
One IG user wrote, “Omg she looks just like you,” while a second person added, “Thought this was Reese before reading the caption.”
Witherspoon shares Ava and 17-year-old son Deacon with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. She shares her third child, Tennessee, with her husband Jim Toth.
Happy belated, Ava!
