Ava Phillippe recently shared a heart-warming post praising her mother, Reese Witherspoon. The best part? It wasn't because it was the actress's birthday or another special occasion — she did it just because. Alongside a beautiful, candid photo of Reese, the 19-year-old wrote, "This is the gorgeous woman who taught me about the power of graciousness, love, ambition, and hard work. She inspires me everyday to live with gratitude for the life I've been given and compassion for others."
The admiration is of course mutual, as Reese commented, "How did I get so lucky to have a daughter like you?" In a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Reese also opened up about how difficult it was when Ava moved away for college: "It's weird when your children go away to college. It's hard. I never imagined how it felt for my mom." She added, "I might have gone into her empty room, laid down on her bed, and cried."
