If you’ve ever been on the internet before you’ll know that people are just slightly obsessed with how similar Reese Witherspoon and her daughter Ava Phillippe look. They are basically identical. Which is why everyone’s jaws very much hit the floor when Ava recently posted a rare picture of her boyfriend Owen Mahoney on Instagram. Quickly fans noticed more than the usual family resemblance, this time saying that Ava and Owen look just like her parents Reese and Ryan Phillippe. Doppelgangers all around!

The pair, who are fellow students at UC Berkeley, have been dating since sometime in 2019 when she shared a series of pictures of the two of them on Instagram. She soon deleted the post and the couple has been fairly private about their relationship ever since.

So it was a big surprise to fans when Ava posted a cute selfie of her and Owen on Instagram while out together at Austin's famous bat bridge. Ava captioned the post, "The bats were feeling shy…so here’s a pic of us instead 🦇 ."

And while it possibly isn't the response she was expecting, fans were quick to notice a resemblance between the couple and Ava's parents Reese and Ryan.

One fan commented, "Young Reese and Ryan all over again.." while another person wrote, "I thought this was a throwback pic of your parents!! 😵," and another said, "1000000% thought it was ur mom and dad lol."

It also looks like these two got the seal of approval from Reese herself who commented, "😍 These two."
