Love her funky purple frames!

A beaming Reese Witherspoon stays in step with her look-alike daughter, 12-year-old Ava Elizabeth, after picking her up from school Wednesday in Los Angeles.

Glad to see that the actress, 35, is recovered from her black eye and cut forehead after being hit by a car while jogging last month.

On Monday, Witherspoon appeared at Elle magazine’s annual Women in Hollywood event, where she honored pal Jennifer Aniston with an award for her achievement in film.

She and ex-husband Ryan Phillippe are also parents to son Deacon, 8 this week.

Ava is a dead ringer for that Daddy of hers too! She is pretty pretty!

Gossip – I totally agree. Sometimes I see photos of Ava and think she is all Reese, but then other times, like in the photo above, she looks just like her dad. Either way she’s beautiful!

I love Reese, and it still shocks me sometimes how much Ava looks like her.

I wonder if Reese will be a part of the Epic Celeb Baby Boom of 2011/2012. Hoping so!

Ava is growing up to be such a beautiful young lady! I am also amazed at how Reese has not aged a bit over the years. Gorgeous all around!

LOVE this family 🙂 Ava is gorgeous just like her mommy …..

I think the good genes are referring to the fact that she strongly resembles both of her attractive parents. She just happens to have glasses.
