The teen's parents also shared their own tributes for him.

"Happy 18th birthday to our gorgeous, smart, talented, and caring son. You are a true light in this world and are so loved by all who know you. We are lucky to be your mom and dad. Love you, pup," Phillippe, 47, wrote on Instagram. He added in parentheses, "I’d say we did pretty good @reesewitherspoon."

Witherspoon, 45, got equally sentimental in her Instagram post.

"How did this happen?!! @deaconphillippe is 18?!! One day he was trading Pokémon cards, singing Bruno Mars songs, and playing American Ninja Warrior in the backyard. The next day, he is taller than me, cooking the family steaks on the grill and making his own music with his best friends," she wrote.

Witherspoon also has a son Tennessee Toth, 9, with husband Jim Toth while Phillippe had a daughter Kai, 10, with ex Alexis Knapp.
