Reese Witherspoon’s look-alike daughter is wishing her mom a happy birthday with an endearing post on Instagram.

Ava Phillippe, who closely resembles her famous mom, took to the social media platform to celebrate the Big Little Lies star’s41st birthday on Wednesday.

The 17-year-old, whose dad is actor Ryan Phillippe, posted a photo of her mom at her birthday dinner, along with the caption “Happy birthday to one of my best friends. 🎉🎂❤️💐.”

In the photo, Witherspoon sits in front of an amazing birthday cake, adorned with sparklers and an array of multi-colored roses.

The actress posted her own celebratory photo on Instagram Wednesday, showing herself holding pink balloons and wearing a custom-made birthday dress from her lifestyle brand, Draper James.

“Feeling so much birthday love today! Thank you!!! I am one lucky gal 💖🎂🎈 (Even @draperjames made me my own dress! 😍),” she wrote.

Earlier this year, Witherspoon spoke with Harper’s Bazaar about growing older.

“It’s a great thing, getting older. You are who you are; you say what you mean,” she told the magazine.

Witherspoon also spoke with Conan O’Brien on Tuesday night’s Conan about what it’s like raising teenagers.

“My daughter [Ava] said the other day, ‘It’s like we look like Dad, but we get our weirdness from you,’ ” Witherspoon said. “But I’m goofy. I send them weird Snapchats of me doing old man voices and goofy teeth. That’s the way we communicate.”
