Reese Witherspoon is starting the Mother's Day celebrations early! Today, she took to her Instagram account to pay tribute to her mom with a sweet throwback snap from her childhood, and it may cause you to do a double-take.

In the 'gram, a framed photo of Reese and her mom Betty sits on a table with a cup of tea and a bouquet of flowers behind it. The snap is clearly a favorite of Witherspoon's, as it's displayed so nicely—and we can see why. The framed photo shows a young Witherspoon smiling up at her equally gorgeous mom. "#fbf to me and my Mama ❤ Can't wait to celebrate her on Sunday ☺#MothersDay #Memories," Witherspoon captioned the 'gram.

While the tribute itself is very touching, the thing that catches our eye the most about the sweet pic is that Reese looks just like her daughter Ava. In fact, at first glance we thought it was a photo of her 16-year-old daughter when she was young. Good genes definitely run in the family.
