It’s been over a decade since they divorced, but Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe are on good terms as they reunited to celebrate their son Deacon’s milestone 18th birthday.

The Legally Blonde star, 45, and Cruel Intentions actor, 47, took to Instagram to gush over their lad as he turned 18.

Seemingly in disbelief at how grown up her son is, Reese shared her pride for the ‘young man he is becoming.’

Alongside several snaps of her second eldest, including one of him as a small child, she wrote: ‘How did this happen?!! @deaconphillippe is 18?!! One day he was trading Pokémon cards, singing Bruno Mars songs, and playing American Ninja Warrior in the backyard.

‘The next day, he is taller than me, cooking the family steaks on the grill and making his own music with his best friends.’

She continued: ‘My heart is bursting with pride about the young man he is becoming.

‘Happy 18th Birthday Deacon,’ signing off with: ‘I love you to the moon around the sun and all the stars.’

Dad Ryan also boasted about their ‘gorgeous, smart, talented, and caring son,’ telling his 1m followers Deacon is ‘a true light in this world’ and ‘so loved by all.’

Posting a snap of musician Deacon with his birthday cake, with his parents beaming on each side, he tagged Reese, saying: ‘We are lucky to be your mom and dad. Love you, pup.. (I’d say we did pretty good @reesewitherspoon)’

Reese shares both Ryan and 22-year-old daughter Ava with Ryan.

She also has Tennessee, nine, with talent agent Jim Toth, whom she married in 2011.

The Big Little Lies star met Ryan at her 21st birthday in 1997, and she was instantly attracted to him.

She told Jane magazine at the time: ‘I don’t know what came over me, maybe the seven Midori sours, but I told him, “I think you’re my birthday present.” He thought it was so flattering, and now that I think about it, how embarrassing!’

They starred alongside one another in Cruel Intentions the following year and got engaged in 1999.

They tied the knot in June of that year in a small ceremony in South Carolina, when Reese was six months pregnant.

However, they entered couple’s therapy following the birth of Ava and Deacon, and divorced in 2008.

Ryan now has another daughter, nine-year-old Kai Knapp, with ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp.

Reese has been married to Jim for 10 years and following a ceremony in California, at Libbey Ranch.
