Ryan and Ava Phillippe's Matching Slouchy Style

10/16/2008 at 01:00 PM ET

Like father, like daughter! Ava Elizabeth Phillippe — who has a "black belt in being cute," per her shirt — copies dad Ryan Phillippe‘s mannerisms as they step out in Santa Monica on Wednesday.

Besides Ava, 9, Ryan and ex-wife Reese Witherspoon are also parents to son Deacon Reese, 5 next week. Reese recently spoke to Vogue about how she and Ryan will handle the holidays and their kids this year.

Ava wears Little Celebrity’s Black Belt Tee ($22).

I wouldn’t mind having Ryan Phillipe’s arm around ME…sigggh! SO good looking!!…and she’s so cute too of course

Sabina on

I’ve always thought Ava was a little mini-Reese in appearance, but in that picture she looks a whole lot like Ryan did in the Cruel Intentions days.🙂

natasha on

She’s a perfect mix of her parents!😀

Oh I see all Reese. From the mouth, eyes and nose. She is literally a mini Reese.

Sabina, you literally took the words right out of my mouth! For so long I saw nothing of Ryan in Ava, but the daddy genes have begun to creep in lately! She and Deacon are so cute!

sasha on

very pretty
and yeah, she’s definitely starting to look a lot more like Ryan🙂

Cezzie on

She’s the absolute image of her mother. Just like seeing Reese back when she did The Man in the Moon.


Ava is a pretty little girl. Although lot of her features are like her mom, but the older she gets the more she resembles Ryan & the shirt is cute.

Hmm, maybe it’s just me but I think Ava is the spitting image of Reese, when she was a young actress.
It’s funny how some children are walking talking clones of one parent while some are a mixed bag of each🙂

Cezzie – thank you, it was on the tip of my tongue during my first post before but yes that’s the movie I was thinking about too!
Ava looks just like Reese if you think back to that movie and the behind-the-scenes footage from around that time.

reese isn’t beautiful neither is her daughter. deacon looks like her dad he is cute.

SMC on

ITA with the previous posters! Until now, I only saw Reese in her. It was kind of hard to see Ryan’s features when she is literally the spitting image of her mother. But in this picture, I think she really resembles her dad! I think Ava and Deacon are both adorable.

Gemma on

I see all Reese in Ava, she is beautiful. I can’t believe she is 9, where has the time gone?!?

Mia on

from the nose up she’s all Reese, but from the mouth/chin its all Ryan.

Maybe the eyes too. Cute kids.

Jane on

Aww, so cute. And I love her shirt! Very true.

Maria on

She Is A Spitting Image Of Reese!!!

Stephany on

I can never get over how much Ava looks like Reese!

brooke on

I see all reese in her, she looks nothing like ryan now. Deacon on the other hand looks more like ryan. Ava’s tall too

linda on

I always thought Ava looked like a little clone of Reese..I still do..but I do see a bit of Ryan in there too now. Ryan has always been really cute…I just hope he stays faithful to his new love and I’m so happy for Reese and Jake.

Amanda on

Ava is definitely a spitting image of Reese. She is the cutest little girl.
