Reese Witherspoon is shining a light on her birthday young boy kid Deacon Phillippe, who turned 17 on Oct. 23.
The Legally Blonde star required to Instagram to share a picture of the teen, who looks much like a young variation of papa Ryan Phillippe. Reese split from Ryan in 2006.
“Happy Birthday to my wonderful son @deaconphillippe,” Reese composed in the caption. “My bright light/ hardworking / fun-loving / music making / deeply kind son, who always finds the good in everyone and everything.”
“What a pleasure to watch you grow into an amazing young man who is always curious and endlessly creative,” she continued. “Can’t wait to celebrate! I love you so much.”
Reese’s child (and mini me!) Ava Phillippe, 21, likewise commemorated her bro on Instagram with an adorable throwback post of the 2 brother or sisters.
“Happy Birthday to my bright, fun, cool, and creative lil brother! I’m so lucky to grow up with you and am so proud of all that you’ve accomplished already,” she composed. “You teach me how to see the good in just about everyone and everything and how to live authentically without fear of judgement. Thank you for being you!”
