Ava Phillippe's biggest fan is her mom, Reese Witherspoon — and her latest Instagram post proves it. In a super-sweet photo of Phillippe wearing bright coral lipstick and a polka-dot top, Witherspoon couldn't help but gush over her lookalike daughter, who People notes is currently enrolled at UC Berkeley. 

"I know she's my kid but I'm pretty much obsessed," Witherspoon wrote, adding a fluttering pink heart emoji for good measure.

Witherspoon's A-list pals showered Ava with compliments in the comments, including notes from Julianne Moore, Mindy Kaling, and Kate Hudson. 

"Beautiful," Moore commented. 

"Me too," Kaling wrote. Hudson added a heart emoji to the conversation and producer Austin Channing Brown said what we're all thinking: "I sincerely thought this was you!."

While this post didn't outright embarrass her kid, Witherspoon says she has no problem doing it. Her latest infraction? Describing her son's latest musical release with the words "dope," "sick," and "bop."

"That's basically my role. It's our job, as parents, to really ramp up the embarrassment," she said during a virtual episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!. "I just say if you're not embarrassing your children, you're not spending enough time with them."
