Reese Witherspoon truly does it all, from acting in movies and TV shows to writing books to owning a clothing brand to producing. On top of all of that, the Legally Blonde star is also a doting mother of three. Two of her three kids are just about grown. Her oldest child, Ava Phillippe, is 22 and her oldest son, Deacon Phillippe, is 18 (she shares both of them with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe). Reese also has a 9-year-old son named Tennessee with her current husband, Jim Toth.
On August 7, Reese shared a sweet photo with Deacon to her Instagram with an lovely caption. "This hug made my whole year 💝," Reese captioned her post of Deacon with his arms wrapped around her.
Deacon wrote back saying: "Miss you so much!!" Even sister Ava chimed in saying "love this, love you two ❤️."
And of course, there were plenty of fan comments. "Twins!," one person wrote. "So sweet," said another. "You just light up in pics with your babies," someone else chimed in.
Deacon just graduated from high school back in June, and is already getting a jump-start on his career in entertainment. This summer, he released his debut EP called JUSTAKID to SoundCloud. Both Ryan and Reese ran to social media to promote their son's musical endeavors and share how proud they are. Witherspoon posted a link to Deacon's SoundCloud page on her Instagram story on August 6 and said, “Listening [to JUSTAKID] on repeat! I love watching you create music & putting your thoughts/ heart/ ideas into the world."
This month, Deacon will also make his acting debut in Mindy Kaling's Never Have I Ever. He will play the role of Parker in season three of the Netflix series, which comes out on August 12. While he's open to other acting opportunities, his primary interest is music, his father revealed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. In the fall, Deacon will attend college for music.
With her son heading off to college, we know these moments will become even sweeter for Reese.
