There's no bond quite like the one between mother and daughter. A fact Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe prove time and again.

For seemingly no specific reason other than "why not," the 19-year-old took to Instagram late last night to rave about her trailblazing mom. "This is the gorgeous woman who taught me about the power of graciousness, love, ambition, and hard work," she captioned a candid shot of Reese fixing her earring. "She inspires me everyday to live with gratitude for the life I've been given and compassion for others. I'm thinking about her a little extra today, that's all." (Pass the tissues, thanks!)

And when one of the teen's friends chimed in calling Reese a "gorgeous lady," Ava continued her praise, writing, "Right??" For her part, Reese is endlessly grateful for their relationship. As she commented, ""How did I get so lucky to have a daughter like you?"

Oftentimes, Ava is asking herself something similar: How did she get so lucky to have a mom like Reese

In May, Ava attended the Big Little Lies season 2 premiere as Reese's plus one. "Big Little Date Night," she wrote on Instagram. "Congrats to every member of #BLL2 crew! So especially proud of my mama and her passion for this story and her work. After seeing just the first episode, I honestly cannot wait to see more!"

After all, they are one another's biggest cheerleaders—and near twins, physically and emotionally.

"I think the way Ava and I are most alike is our strong opinions and our empathy," Reese previously admitted. "From the time that she could speak, Ava has always had her own ideas, and I love to watch her express herself."

Sleigh Bells Ring

The Big Little Lies star joked she "had to beg" Ava to rock matching Draper James holiday sweaters. 

Bundled Up

Reese and her mini-me daughter served some fresh winter fashion in January of this year in puffer coats.

Talk about seeing double! The duo hits the red carpet for season two of Reese's show, Big Little Lies, in May 2019.

Birthday Wishes

The duo celebrates Reese's 43rd birthday! Ava takes to Instagram to send a sweet message to her momma, saying, "You are such a generous, conscientious, and passionately kind person, and I am so blessed to bear witness to your light and love each and every day!"

Twinning

In October 2018, Reese and her daughter stepped out at a gala in sexy little black dresses and they were totally twinning.

Premiere Partners

Clearly, Phillippe inherited her mom's killer, blonde locks and power stance.

Smiling Style

Witherspoon enlisted her daughter for Draper James' spring collection in 2018 and if her goal was to make us do a double take it definitely worked.

Christmas Cuties

As the duo celebrated Christmas in 2017 they looked cheerful in red.

In October 2017, the pair posed for photos in similar, but different ensembles. Notice the wavy locks, peep-toed heels and signature natural makeup looks both ladies rocked.

Red Carpet Ready

If it weren't for the Oscar winner's red lipstick, it would be quite the challenge telling these two apart.

Smirking Sisters

It's clear Phillippe inherited her mama's signature grin. 

Flower Power

Another day, another sweet mother-daughter snap of the actress and her lookalike daughter.

Doing a Double Take
