Prepare for an immediate spike in cuteness levels, because Reese Witherspoon posted a few throwback photos of her mom, Betty, for her birthday, and we might be seeing double. In a slideshow on her Instagram account on Tuesday, Reese shared a picture of a newspaper clipping from her mom's days as a nurse, followed by a sweet selfie of them together and a photo of her mom's nursing student ID card from 1969. Does anyone else think Reese looks exactly like her mom?? Considering how similar Reese and her daughter Ava Phillippe look, the three of them could have been triplets. "Happy Birthday to my mom, Betty! No one makes me laugh & smile like her," Reese captioned the post.
In honor of her mom's hard work as a nurse and the years she dedicated to teaching her nursing students, Reese also took the time to shout out the medical workers on the frontlines. "I love this photo of her as a young nurse just starting out . . . and with a great nurse hat might I add," she wrote. "Shout out to all the nurses out there! She also taught nursing for 30 years at @tennstateu . . . I always wonder how many of her nursing students are out in the world helping people. Mom always said a life of serving others is the best life to have. I agree . Love you Mom! Have the best Birthday! [sic] I will be there to hug you so soon!"
