Reese Witherspoon is one of Hollywood’s most accomplished – and busiest – actresses, producers, writers…take your pick. She’s also a mother of three children and her oldest, Ava, is pretty much a carbon copy of her mom (in looks, at any rate).
A recent photoshoot with Vogue also included Reese’s mother, and y’all, their genes are crazy strong and beautiful because there can be no mistaking these three for family.
Vogue captioned the photo on Instagram with a quote from Meryl Streep:
“She does everything! On top of the acting and producing and the books and @draperjames, she also carves the pumpkins! She raises three kids. She maintains friendships. I know what it’s like to be in this business and also raise kids.”
In the interview, Reese talked about admiring her mother, a labor and delivery nurse.
“There would usually be two women, and they’d be doing all the diapering, all the feeding – everything, all at once. And the crying of the babies! The noise! She said she didn’t even hear it. I remember being so in awe of my mom. She always had a positive attitude, always laughing, always telling a joke, and she always had a billion friends at work. She just loved the women she worked with.”
Her daughter, Ava, is still young but there’s no doubt that with a grandmother and mother like she has for role models, she’s bound to do amazing things.
“I do see the resemblance,” Reese told Vanity Fair about her daughter. “She’s a beautiful person inside and out. She’s just a good soul. I’m not sure what she thinks. I’m just ‘Mom’ to her. We’re happy to share this wonderful experience. I really have a rich, personal relationship with my daughter. I have a really great career, and it’s nice to be able to share it with my kids.”
I can’t wait to see what the Witherspoons do next! Besides look exactly alike, I mean.
