Witherspoon is not shy about showering her children with love and accolades via social media, posting another proud photo of Deacon from his 6th grade graduation last spring, in addition to a sweet family photo mere weeks ago in honor of youngest son Tennessee's fourth birthday.

The 40-year-old actress shares custody of her eldest children Deacon and Ava, 17, with ex Ryan Phillippe and has Tennessee with her husband, Jim Toth. The children often poke fun of their mom's Southern roots, Witherspoon noted in a recent interview with Today's Jenna Bush Hager.

"My kids do this whole thing where they make fun of me because I'll say, 'He did do, but he didn't done do. He done did that,'" she said. "They'll be like, 'What? Why are you [saying] 'did done?' They think it's hysterical."

The Sing actress also isn't afraid to embarrass her kids on occasion, telling ET, "I think I embarrass them terribly when I try to sing Drake songs. I don't stop singing. I enjoy it."
