Apart from being an accomplished actress and producer, Reese Witherspoon is a devoted mother to her three kids. Among her three kiddos, Ava is undeniably her mom’s mini-me. Though the young woman has grown up in the spotlight, she has remained extremely grounded thanks to her caring mother.
Here is everything you need to know about the burgeoning starlet.
Ava Elizabeth Phillippe is the first-born child and daughter of high-profile actors Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe. She was born in the year 1999 in the United States. Her birthday falls on September 9, which makes her zodiac sign Virgo.
Ava’s Oscar-winning mother celebrated her 22nd birthday by sharing an adorable throwback baby photo of Ava from a past birthday.
Ava Phillippe isn’t into labels, at least when it comes to her dating preferences.
The 22-year-old daughter of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe didn’t hold back during an “Ask Me Anything” Q&A session on her Instagram Story and casually responded to a fan who asked, “Do u like boys or girls?”
Across a smiley selfie that she shared with her 996,000 Instagram followers, Ava wrote:
“I’m attracted to… people! (Gender is whatever).”
Ava is currently in a relationship with her college boyfriend Owen Mahoney. She made her relationship with Mahoney Instagram official in 2019 after they met at UC Berkeley.
Ava’s boyfriend, Mahoney, has even earned her mother’s approval, and he joined Ava’s family on a tropical vacation last summer.
Ava is very close to both her father and mother. Just scrolling through Ava’s IG, it’s obvious that she has a very special relationship with her mother. The two have actually spent some time at major events together. The mother-daughter duo looked more like twins when Ava joined her mom for the premiere of Big Littles Lies in 2019.

Ava also shares a strong bond with her father. While Ryan usually stays fairly private about his personal life, he shared photos of Ava on her 18th birthday. In fact, he never fails to wish his daughter on her birthday and makes sure to tell her how much he loves her.
Ava is the first-born child of her parents. She has a younger brother, Deacon Reese Phillippe, who was born on October 23, 2003.
Ava has a half-brother named Tennessee from her mother’s second marriage to Jim Toth, whom she tied the knot in 2011. Furthermore, she has a half-sister, Kai, from her father’s relationship with Alexis Knapp.
As Ava Phillippe is the daughter of two high-profile actors – Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe – people expect her to pursue acting after graduation. However, Ava is still not sure if she wants to follow in her parents’ footsteps.
The 22-year-old blonde has, however, worked as a model while building her social media profile to nearly 1 million followers. She was the face of Pat McGrath Labs x Bridgerton, a limited edition collection that debuted on December 26, 2021.
It’ll be interesting to watch whether Ava follows in her famous parents’ footsteps. But she is currently devoting herself to her studies. She is studying at the University of California, Berkeley.
Ava’s mother, Reese, admitted to having a hard time when she started going to college. Reese told Ellen DeGeneres that she would cry in Ava’s empty room after Ava left for college.
