Reese Witherspoon, Her Mom, and Her Daughter Could Pass for Triplets in Latest Instagram Post

Reese Witherspoon proved yet again that the genes in her family run strong.

The actress posted a photo to her Instagram account on Sunday of herself, her mother Betty, and her daughter Ava all enjoying brunch together while looking like three generations of carbon copies. Reese opted for a white button up for the meal, while her 23-year-old daughter chose a simple white tank top and pigtail braids, and her 73-year-old mother chose a navy blue blazer and tank, pearls, and a Gucci crossbody bag, completing her look with a bright red lip. “Sunday brunch crew,” the Oscar winner captioned the shot.

And this isn’t the first time the trio has posed for a multi-generational portrait. In January 2019, they were photographed together as part of Reese’s cover shoot for Vogue. In the interview accompanying the images, Reese recalled being a young mom, bringing her daughter to set with her while making Legally Blonde, the same way her mother brought her to work when she was a labor and delivery nurse at Nashville, Tennessee’s Vanderbilt hospital. She told the magazine about going to work with Betty and watching her “take care of seventeen babies at once. There would usually be two women, and they’d be doing all the diapering, all the feeding—everything, all at once.” She added, “And the crying of the babies! The noise! She said she didn’t even hear it. I remember being so in awe of my mom. She always had a positive attitude, always laughing, always telling a joke, and she always had a billion friends at work. She just loved the women she worked with.”

That brunch post also came shortly after the actress celebrated a landmark anniversary for her 2002 romantic-comedy Sweet Home Alabama. “20 years ago Sweet Home Alabama came out and completely changed my life,” Reese wrote. “So many great scenes with these amazing actors—Josh [Lucas], Patrick [Dempsey], Dakota [Fanning], Melanie [Lynskey], Jean [Smart], Ethan [Embry], Mary Kay [Place], Fred [Ward], and Candace [Bergen] [sic], of course!” The Hello Sunshine founder then highlighted her personal favorite line from the film, sharing a clip of the scene where a young version of her character Melanie, played by Fanning, asks Thomas Curtis‘s Jake Perry, “Why would you wanna marry me for, anyhow?” to which the young boy responds, “So I can kiss you anytime I want.”
