Reese Witherspoon is one of Hollywood’s most famous faces, but she has an almost identical double in daughter, who warmed our hearts with a sweet Instagram message this week.

After the actress nabbed an Emmy nomination for her role in Big Little Lies, which she also produced with her production company Hello Sunshine, her daughter took to social media to share a sweet message praising her famous mum.

“This is the gorgeous woman who taught me about the power of graciousness, love, ambition, and hard work,” the 19-year-old captioned an image of her mother.

“She inspires me everyday to live with gratitude for the life I’ve been given and compassion for others.”

Fans were quick to praise the sweet message, leaving comments and almost 150,000 likes.

“Beautiful words, Ava,’ one wrote.

“Such a good daughter,” another said.

The adorable words come after Ava made waves for her striking similarity to her mum.

The two are almost interchangeable in snaps posted online, and at red carpet calls they are barely interchangeable.

Ava is a budding model herself, and has an online following of 774k on Instagram.

Comments on her Instagram regularly reference how much she is like her mother.

“Like mother, like daughter,” one comment read.

“Who's who tho???” one fan wondered on an image of the mum and daughter posing together.

“Just like twins,” wrote another.
