Reese Witherspoon’s Son Deacon Looks Like Her Carbon Copy in New IG Selfie

We've said it a million times and we'll say it again: Reese Witherspoon's got some powerful genes.

Only a few weeks ago, we established that her daughter, Ava Phillippe, is nearly indistinguishable from her mom. But now, after taking a close look at the Legally Blonde star's latest Instagram selfie, we're starting to think that her son, Deacon, is the real doppelgänger.

The post features a close-up of the 18-year-old actor and musician as he embraces his mom, and both of them are all smiles. In the caption, Witherspoon wrote, "This hug made my whole year @deaconphillippe." In the comments, he responded, "Miss you so much!!"

Fans also called out the mother-son duo's uncanny resemblance in the comments section. One follower wrote, "He is a copy of you." Another chimed in, "Twins, no mistaking who his momma is!"

This isn't the first time Witherspoon and her lookalike son made us do a double take. Back in April 2021, Witherspoon shared a selfie with Deacon against a breathtaking sunset, and the two could pass for twins. She wrote, "Not enough words to say how much I love this guy. The way he looks at the world inspires me everyday @deaconphillippe."

And in 2020, when the 46-year-old actress shared a tribute for Deacon's 17th birthday, fans were quick to call out his resemblance to his mom. One commenter wrote, "Wow he looks just like you, so handsome." Another said, "Now this is your twin ... HE LOOKS JUST LIKE REESE."

Keep these lookalike pics coming, Reese.
