She herself looks so young that it’s surprising to learn her oldest child is now 18. Actress Reese Witherspoon recently celebrated her firstborn’s eighteenth birthday with a throwback photo.
Reese shares Ava and Deacon, 13, with her ex-husband, actor Ryan Phillippe. The exes met at her 21st birthday party in 1997 and married two years later.
They separated in 2006 due to Ryan’s infidelity but soon ended their bitterness for the sake of their children.
In 2011 the Legally Blonde actress married talent agent Jim Toth, and welcomed another son, Tennessee, in September 2012.
Phillippe too posted birthday messages for his daughter with a throwback photo.
However unlike Reese Ryan didn’t stop at one post. He kept going on and on because hey, that’s what dads do.
Though based in LA that can easily spoil a person it’s wonderful to see how well behaved Reese’s daughter has been.
