Reese Witherspoon and her daughter continue to look the same

Genetics, right?

It’s nothing new that Reese Witherspoon and her daughter Ava Phillipe are more or less the exact same person, but this latest photo really has us.

The mother and daughter duo have gone viral across the internet countless times over the years over how similar they look, it’s uncanny.

Posting a family shot, fans couldn’t get over how much Ava seems to be morphing into her mother.

Alongside her daughter and 17 year old son Deacon, Reese wrote: “Gosh, I’m lucky to be their mom.”

Reese shares her two children with ex husband Ryan Phillipe, but has another son Tennesse James with her current husband Jim Toth.

When it comes to celebrity doppelgangers, Ava takes the win here but her brother Deacon isn’t far off as many fans pointed out that he looks like the spit of his dad Ryan.

However, they look so much like their mum that even a few famous faces started pointing it out, with Cindy Crawford saying: “You look like their sister.”

Another fan said: “If I didn’t know you were their mama, I’d think YALL were triplets. Gorg family!”

Reese recently opened up about the challenges of being a new mother on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast, explaining how she didn’t have a lot of support.

She said: “I did not have a lot of support with my first baby and I learned really early, like, this is not going to work. I tried to muscle through for five months with Ava, just not sleeping and I became delirious.”

Explaining then to Kristen Bell and Monica Padman that she “couldn’t have worked” through the first few months after her daughter was born: “I was lucky enough to have money saved and I didn’t have to work, but it’s just not a one-person job.

“I would even say it’s not a two-person job.”
