Reese Witherspoon has done something virtually unprecedented (for her): She hath shared a photograph of one of her kids on the Instagram!

Could this be the beginnings of the GOOPification of Reese Witherspoon?

The 38-year-old mom of three posted a pic of herself with her youngest son, Tennessee, 21 months, on Sunday, July 6. Look how sweet...

Awww, he is totally cute?!


And the This Means War actress looks lovely as ever and summer-chic in a pretty white dress and snazzy fedora as she holds Tennessee's hand at the end of their family vacation to Reese's hometown, New Orleans.

"Last day of beignets with my boy <3 #NOLAstyle," Reese captions the pic. Tennessee himself is sweetly dressed in sporty red shorts and a Charlie Rocket White Penguin T-shirt ($21 from Nicole's for Children).

As you may already know, Tennessee is Reese's son with hubby Jim Toth. She's also got two kids with ex-hubby Ryan Phillippe— Deacon, 10, and Ava, 14.


Reese also posted this photo on her active WhoSay account. It looks like she's finally embracing social media! And indeed, according to Taylor Swift—in a recent op-ed for the Wall Street Journal (which is getting rave reviews)—celebrities have no choice but to do so if they want to stay relevant and get work. So, we'll likely be seeing more of this type of thing, especially as celebrity parents' fight to end harassment of their children by members of the paparazzi with such social initiatives as #NoKidsPolicy.

In addition to family, Reese reportedly spent time down south with friend Sofia Vergara, as they prep for their new yet-untitled action comedy together. Should be a good one!
