Reese Witherspoon celebrated her 43rd birthday on March 22 and her look-alike daughter Ava Phillippe praised her mother as she wished her on her birthday.
Witherspoon's 19-year-old daughter Ava Phillippe shared an adorable picture of the both of them on a sunny beach. Ava captioned the picture: "Happy, happy birthday to my glowingly gorgeous mama. You are such a generous, conscientious, and passionately kind person, and I am so blessed to bear witness to your light and love each and every day!" Ava ended her caption with "Love you."
The mother-daughter duo were wearing matching white off-shoulder tops. Witherspoon's top also had dark blue stripes.
The 'Big Little Lies' star also posted a picture of a pier that had lilac-painted poles on her social media handle. She captioned the picture, "On the eve of my birthday, I’m reflecting on this past year. How many amazing people I met, the great fun I have had at work, friends I truly cherish, the people I have lost, the joys that definitely outweigh the sadnesses, and my loving family always at the center of everything."
She continued: "I always remember that saying, 'Don’t look back, you’re not going that way,' but I want to look back a minute before I go forward again and say thank you to everyone who follows me here, everyone who came to see me speak this year, everyone who took time to say hi or say something positive, everyone who showed me their heart and their kindness. I am so lucky to walk through this world with you all."
Apart from posting a picture on her Instagram handle, the actress also uploaded a story of her walking on the beach and captioned it, "Good Morning." In the second video that she had uploaded as a story, she and her kids had come across a washed-up starfish and tried to pick it up. The details of where she and her family celebrated her 43rd birthday were not revealed.
In addition to Ava, Witherspoon also shares a son, Deacon, with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. The couple was married from 1999 to 2007. In 2011 the actress got married to talent agent Jim Toth. The couple share a six-year-old son Tennessee.
On Friday, Jennifer Garner, Witherspoon's longtime friend, uploaded a video of her playing the saxophone all dressed up in a marching band uniform paying a birthday tribute to Witherspoon. Her caption read, "Many moons ago, my high school marching band played this song for homecoming. Today I play it for my boo, @reesewitherspoon. ♥️We have a groovy kind of love.♥️ Happy birthday, Lady. #bandgeeksarethebestgeeks #havethebestday."
Witherspoon and Garner were on the March cover of OK! Magazine which spoke about the bff's being pregnant. But the stars revealed that the rumor is far from being true and mocked the magazine for publishing the story. "Hey @jennifer.garner! Can we raise our imaginary babies together?" Witherspoon captioned her post. And Garner replied saying, ""[We'll be] the cutest imaginary family! I'll just go ahead and move in now."
