Anyone who follows her on Instagram will know that her youngest child is the life and soul of the household, so there were plenty of celebrations when Reese Witherspoon’s son Tennessee turned four this week.


The Legally Blonde star took to Instagram to mark the tot’s birthday, and there was plenty of colour and excitement in the Witherspoon-Toth house on the day.


While all eyes were on daughter Ava last week, as she stepped out for her first solo red carpet appearance, Sunday was all about cheeky little Tennessee.



Taking to Instagram to share a photo of her little one holding a red balloon, smiling for the camera, Reese wrote: “The smile says it all! Had such a special day celebrating this sweet little one’s birthday!”


“We love you so much, Tennessee,” added the 40-year-old, revealing that Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles provided the theme for the day.

Indeed, Reese went on to share a photo of Tennessee’s amazing birthday cake, featuring the Turtles climbing out of a city sewer.


As well as Tennessee and 17-year-old Ava, Reese is of course mother 12-year-old son Deacon.
