Reese Witherspoon, 47, and her daughter, Ava Elizabeth Phillippe, 23, might cause some to be confused, thanks to their uncanny resemblance. In celebration of Mother’s Day on Sunday, the Legally Blonde alum shared a snap with her three kids—and believe us when we say that mother-daughter duo looked like carbon copies of each other.

On Instagram, The Morning Show star shared a grainy throwback snap of her and her children (who she shares with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe) spending time together on a sandy beach. 

In the newly shared photo, Ava looks like the spitting image of her mom as she gives her a loving hug from behind. Meanwhile, Witherspoon’s two sons, Deacon, 19, and Tennessee, 10, are playing in the background.

The Big Little Lies actress wrote in the caption, “Gosh, I’m lucky to be their mama.”

Her followers couldn’t get over the striking resemblance between the mother and daughter in the comments section. For example, one person said, “You really just said copy and paste didn’t you.” Another fan commented, “It’s like seeing double with you two!!”

This is just one of many photos on social media that shows the mother-daughter pair looking like identical twins. Last August, Witherspoon documented her dinner date with her daughter and shared the photos on Instagram. 

The slides show the pair looking like each other’s doppelgängers as they enjoy a nice meal together at the Violet Bistro in Los Angeles. “Love my dinner date,” the actress wrote in the caption.

It’s like we’re seeing double (again).
