The love between these two siblings is like no other.
Reese Witherspoon's daughter Ava Phillippe wrote a heartwarming Instagram tribute to brother Tennessee in honor of his 10th birthday. In her Sept. 26 post, Ava reflected on their 13-year age difference and how the two bonded despite this.
"Today is the day... TENN IS 10!!" Ava began her lengthy post next to a carousel with snaps of the couple and single shots from Tennessee. "Happy double digit birthday to the absolute legend and the tiny teenager who is my little brother."
The 23-year-old went on to share all her favorite things about her little brother.
"He asks the best questions, has all the smart (and cheeky) comebacks, and in life shows himself to be nothing less than his most authentic, goofy, and vivacious self," Ava noted. "He works hard and plays even harder, constantly surprising the people in his life with his immense maturity, intellect and compassion for those he loves."

Ava also admitted that the age difference between the two used to worry her.
She explained: "Although I once worried about our 13 year age difference, the greatest gift I never saw coming was some of my favorite movies, shows, books, activities and childhood memories with him to share."
Closing her note by reflecting on everything Tennessee taught her and her family, the UC Berkeley student wrote, "Thank you T for making me an even better big sister and for everything you teach us , just by being you. Pava."
Taking to her own Instagram page, the Legally Blonde star wished her youngest child a happy birthday.
"Happy 10th Birthday to my beautiful boy, Tennessee!!" Reese wrote. "Your brilliant curiosity and endless energy make me smile every day! I'm so happy to be your mom. I love you buddy! Tenn turns 10!”
Reese and Ryan Phillippe share children Ava, 23, Tennessee, 10, and Deacon Reese Phillippe, 18.
