Reese Witherspoon celebrated her 41st birthday last Wednesday, March 22nd. The youthful-looking Southerner who is one of Hollywood’s favorite daughters celebrated entering her fifth decade with her two oldest children and dazzled her 9.1 million Instagram followers with two things.
First, how much her 17-year-old daughter Ava and 13-year-old son Deacon resemble her; and second, the fact that she could easily pass for their older sister if someone did not know better.
“There’s nothing better than celebrating my birthday with my wonderful kids!” she captioned the shot, which is the latest to capture the attention of the media, who for awhile now cannot get over the fact how much Deacon and Ava look like younger versions of Witherspoon and her former husband, actor Ryan Philippe.
The former partners and Cruel Intentions co-stars were married between 1999 and 2007 and share joint custody of their two children. Witherspoon has another child with talent agent Jim Toth, a son named Tennessee James Toth who was born in 2012.
Ava Elizabeth Phillippe shared her own Instagram photo of the grand occasion in which her mother is getting ready to blow out the candles on her birthday cake. “Happy birthday to one of my best friends,” the teenager wrote under her shot.
