No one supports their kids quite like Reese Witherspoon.

On Wednesday, the Little Fires Everywhere star, 44, showed some love to her 16-year-old son Deacon by dancing to his first-ever single, “Long Run," in a hilarious Instagram video.

In the clip, Witherspoon, who sported green shorts and a striped shirt, clutched her cup of coffee while attempting to reenact viral TikTok dance moves to the new single.

At one point, the mom of three stopped dancing from laughing so hard, but quickly got back into character and kept the moves coming.

"My kids love when I drink a TON of coffee and make up fake Tiktok dances 🤣," the actress wrote, adding that her son's song has been "on repeat over here."

Witherspoon most recently showed off some enthusiastic dance moves in another silly social media video from earlier this month, in which the Morning Show star sat down with her son as he played his new track on a phone.

As Witherspoon danced along, she was struck with a moment of inspiration and told her teenage son that she knows the perfect way to take the release to the next level.

“Deacon, I should make up a TikTok dance to the song,” she joked, as her son playfully shook his head and said, “Mom, No."

Witherspoon captioned the hilarious video, "When your kid has his first single... you gotta dance! 🎶”

Deacon released his debut single featuring Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt on July 10.

New Song of the Summer!” Witherspoon wrote on Instagram after the track dropped. “It’s the perfect summer bop with a sick beat and dope drops (is that what the kids say 🤗?!)”

Dad Ryan Phillippe also chimed in, adding, “Stream it nonstop for me. So proud of you @deaconphillipee.”

Thanks to Deacon, Witherspoon has managed to keep up with the latest TikTok trends, first learning about the viral app back in September in another hilarious mother-son video.

At the time, Witherspoon jokingly questioned Deacon if she should be on TikTok, much to the embarrassment of her son. Deacon even had to watch as his famous mom attempted to bust out some of her moves.

“No, not like that,” he told the Oscar winner.

“@deaconphillippe tries to teach me how to Tik Tok,” Witherspoon captioned the video, adding a crying with laughter emoji. “I think I nailed it…"
