Reese Witherspoon Just Shared a Rare Photo With Her Mom and They Look Like Sisters

Twins, actually.

  • Reese Witherspoon shared a sweet tribute to her mother on Instagram for her birthday.
  • The Sweet Home Alabama star looks exactly like her mom in the photos.

    We've said it before and we'll say it again: Reese Witherspoon's family genes run very strong.

    Everyone has always known that Reese's daughter is her mini-me. Then, as her children got older, people realized that the actress and her older kids could literally pass as triplets. Most recently, we discovered she looks exactly like her older brother as well.

    It seemed impossible that Reese could have any more lookalike relatives—until she posted a photo with her mom and reminded us exactly where she came from.

    Earlier this week, The Morning Show star shared a series of adorable pictures to honor her mother's birthday.

    "It’s my mama’s birthday!! She’s my best friend, my biggest inspiration and no one makes me laugh harder!!" Reese wrote. "I love you MOM!"

    Betty Reese (yes, Reese goes by her mother's maiden name) just turned 71, but the resemblance between her and her 43-year-old daughter is unmistakable. It's clear from the photos that the identical duo shares everything from their signature blonde hair to their genuine smiles to their friendly mannerisms.

    Still not convinced they're twins separated by a few decades? Take a look at this snapshot from Reese's photo shoot with Vogue earlier this year, where she posed with her mom and daughter.

    We know what you're thinking and, no, you're not seeing triple—but, yes, that is insane. It looks like a multi-generational time warp captured on camera!
