Wow, Reese Witherspoon's Son Deacon Is the Spitting Image of Dad Ryan Phillippe in New Pic

Reese Witherspoon isn’t the only one with strong genes in the family (seriously, she and her daughter Ava are practically twins). Her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe has clearly passed his genes on to their eldest son, Deacon, who is growing into a mini version of his father.

Over the weekend, the Walk the Line actress shared a new photo of the 17-year-old in honor of his latest single, “Love for the Summer,” which was released on Friday. “Song of the Weekend!” Witherspoon captioned a video featuring the song. “I think they call this a Bop or is it a Banger? A Bangin’ Bop? Help me out @deaconphillippe... Check out #LovefortheSummer.”

And while we’re quite impressed by the new single, we couldn’t help but be distracted by Deacon’s likeness to his father. And no, we’re not just talking about the blonde hair. Deacon also seems to have acquired his dad’s smile, blue eyes and seriously impressive bone structure. Not to mention, they both have the same exact nose.

This isn’t the first time the 44-year-old has shown her support for her son’s new music career. Over the summer, the Big Little Lies star shared her son’s first-ever single on her personal Instagram account. “New Song of the Summer! #LongRun So proud of my son @deaconphillippe... his first single with the incredibly talented @ninanesbitt is out now!” she captioned the post. “It’s the perfect summer bop with a sick beat and dope drops (is that what the kids say?!) check it out!” We’re sensing a caption theme here...

With his impressive music skills and his good genes, we have a feeling Deacon is going to build quite an impressive career just like his parents.
