AceShowbiz - It's a well-known fact that Reese Witherspoon and daughter Ava Phillippe has a close relationship. The 20-year-old recently created buzz after posting a photo of herself with new boyfriend Owen Mahoney, whom fans thought looked like dad Ryan Phillippe, and the "Big Little Lies" actress couldn't help but gush over the young couple.
The 43-year-old Academy Award-winning actress showed that she's such a supportive mom by leaving a comment on Ava's Instagram post. Reese apparently didn't need words to show her love as she left emojis of a palm tree, love and shining stars under the sweet post.

In related news, Ava had broken her silence on people's comments saying that Owen looked like his famous dad. "It's crazy how much this looks like Ryan and Reese too funny! So cute!" one fan said. "Is it just me or does her new beau have a little bit of Ryan in him?" another fan wrote in the comment.
Well, apparently Ava doesn't think so. To a comment that read, "He does not look like your dad," she replied, "Big thx."
Posted on Sunday, June 9, the snap saw the couple snuggling up to each other at Cinespia at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. The pair spent the night watching the 1996 comedy "The Birdcage", starring Nathan Lane and late Robin Williams.
