Although Ava, 18, struggled in the aftermath of her parents divorce (Witherspoon split from Ryan Phillippe in 2007 after eight years of marriage), she and Witherspoon, 42, have strengthened their relationship in recent years. In fact, the Big Little Lies actress remarriage to talent agent Jim Toth in 2011 made “the family feel whole” and ever since, they’ve been inseparable.

“Reese and Ava talk several times a day and they go to each other for everything,” the insider noted, later adding that the blonde beauties enjoy traveling and working together on the Legally Blonde star’s label, Draper James. “[Ava] has learned so much by being with her mom and traveling the world with her.”
