Talk about “mini-me’s.”
Ava Phillippe, 19, and her 14-year-old brother, Deacon, are basically twins of their parents, Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon.
The elder Phillippe posted a pic with his teen children on Instagram recently and the internet went wild over how much the kids look like their famous mom and dad
“Me n mine,” the actor captioned the photo:
“My God… Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe’s kids are like mini-carbon copies!,” @mels80 tweeted. “That’s all, you can go back to what you were doing.”

Other fans commented and shared @mels80’s reactions, while @becca_allen said no matter what the kids looked like, she would be happy to have them with Phillippe. “I wish I had a kid with Ryan Phillippe lol,” she wrote.

Phillippe and Witherspoon split in 2006 after seven years of marriage.
She married talent agent Jim Toth in 2011 and shares a son, Tennessee, with him.
Phillippe also has a young daughter, Kai, with his ex, actress Alexis Knapp, from the popular “Pitch Perfect” films.
The “Shooter” star talked to “Entertainment Tonight” last year about how people make such a big deal over the kids looking like their parents — especially Ava resembling Witherspoon.
“Who else are they going to look like, you know,” he said. “I always find that such a weird thing, like, [Ava] looks exactly like her mother, who else is she going to look like? It’s an odd thing that people fixate on that.”
