Reese Witherspoon's Daughter Is All Grown Up And Ready For College


Reese Witherspoon's Daughter Is All Grown Up And Ready For College

Oh, how time flies!

It feels just like yesterday when Legally Blonde star Reese Witherspoon and actor Ryan Philippe announced the arrival of their first child, Ava, on September 9, 1999.

Although the celebrity pair's marriage did not survive, they put their differences aside and remained friends for the sake of Ava and her brother Deacon, who was born in 2003.

Over the years, we've watched Ava grow from a toddler riding in a wagon and running errands with her famous parents to a preteen making appearances on the red carpet.

Ava is turning 18 years old very soon and she's gone from a shy little girl to a confident young adult who looks exactly like her mom, golden locks and all.

Witherspoon's mini-me daughter reminded us all that she's no longer a child when she posted a photo of her gorgeous self and a date on their way to a school dance back in 2016.

The teen has since been spotted attending fashion-related red carpet events all by herself.

Even her mom admits that her daughter is "so much cooler" than she is and "she's very cutting-edge, and she knows a lot about fashion, and she has her own sense of style, which is amazing," Witherspoon added.

The soon to be 18-year-old's father, Ryan Philippe, recently revealed that she has been in the process of looking for colleges.

"It's a really exciting time. They're such great kids, they're great students and I'm enjoying seeing them become adults," Philippe said during an appearance on Live! with Kelly and Ryan. "[Ava] just took the ACT and she killed it," he added proudly.

At the time Ava's options included Berkeley, University of Washington and a school in San Diego.

Late last month, Ava was spotted working as a hostess at Pizzana pizza restaurant in Los Angeles. Despite having famous Hollywood parents, Ava is learning value of money through hard work.
