The resemblance is uncanny

If there was an award for “Best Celebrity Kid Lookalike,” Reese Witherspoon and her daughter, Ava Phillippe, would win the prize every time. They’re practically a spitting image of each other, from their blonde locks to their face shape. But after the mother of three, 47, recently dedicated a birthday tribute to her youngest son Tennessee, it’s safe to say that we have just found the Legally Blonde actress’s new lookalike.

Earlier this week on Instagram, Witherspoon wished her son, who just turned 11 years old, a very happy birthday by sharing a slideshow filled with photos of them together. In the first snap, the proud mom can be seen giving her baby boy a big hug as they stand on a white, sandy beach.

We couldn’t help but notice the uncanny resemblance between the mother and son, from their identical blue eyes to their round cheeks. The next pic shows the pair sporting matching black ensembles while making serious faces at the camera, and it’s like we’re seriously seeing double. 

In the caption, Witherspoon wrote, “Happy 11th Birthday to my wonderful son, Tenn! [stars emoji] I love your curiosity, your endless energy and your playful sense of humor.”

She continued, “Everyday you make me think more about the world around us and dream even bigger. I [blue heart emoji] you so much, Buddy!”

Witherspoon rarely posts pictures of her lookalike son, Tennessee, on social media. But when she does, we certainly remember. Back in December 2022, the Big Little Lies star posted a snap of all three of her children on Christmas Day

While Tenn sat in the middle of his two older siblings, the young boy practically looked like his mom’s mini-me. “Wishing all of YOU a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from our family to yours!” Witherspoon wrote in the caption alongside holiday-themed emojis. 

Those are some strong family genes you got there, Reese.
