AceShowbiz - Ava Phillippe recently posted on her Instagram account a picture of herself with new boyfriend Owen Mahoney. The new lovers looked incredibly cute together, but fans noticed one more thing that surely created buzz on the internet. It was that Owen looks so much like Ava's famous dad Ryan Phillippe.
In the Sunday, June 9 Instagram photo, the daughter of Reese Witherspoon was seen snuggling up to Owen at Cinespia at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. The pair spent the night watching the 1996 comedy "The Birdcage", starring Nathan Lane and the late Robin Williams.
"He looks exactly like her dad," one fan wrote in the comment section. Another fan echoed the sentiment, saying, "He looks like a younger version of your dad. Wow." Meanwhile, one other commented, "Is it just me or does her new beau have a little bit of Ryan in him?"
As Ava herself was often said to be her mother Reese's look-alike, it wasn't surprising that one of her followers thought "this was a throwback pic of @reesewitherspoon & @ryanphillippe."
Additionally, the comment section was flooded with gushing comments as "Pokemon Detective Pikachu" star Kathryn Newton wrote, "Cuteeeee." Another comment read, "Omg so cute.. that picture makes me remember when Reese&Ryan were together."
This arrives after Ava and Owen were photographed packing on the PDA at the beach on Monday, June 3. The 19-year-old Rodarte model, who recently finished her freshman year at University of California, Berkeley, and her beau were seen cuddling to each other and embracing each other as they leaned for a kiss. They were also spotted enjoying a snack on a blanket on the beach.
