"So cute she looks just like you," one person wrote.

"Oh my goodness! Y'all look like sisters! So very pretty!!" another added.

Happy 4th y'all! #GoldenHour @avaphillippe ❤️❤️🇺🇸

Witherspoon shares Ava and 13-year-old Deacon with Phillippe, and 4-year-old Tennessee with husband Jim Toth. Phillippe, who is also dad to 6-year-old daughter Kai, said in November that he sometimes gets mistaken as Ava's brother.

"One thing that I know my daughter gets embarrassed sometimes by [is] the fact that I do look so young," the 42-year-old actor said on The Late Late Show with James Corden. "I get mistaken for her brother at times, which repulses her."

Witherspoon last starred as Madeline Mackenzie on the HBO miniseries Big Little Lies. She told E! News in April that she's spoken to author Liane Moriarty and co-star Nicole Kidman about the show's potential return.
