The Academy Award winner shares Deacon with her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe. The pair also have a daughter, Ava, 16, and Witherspoon has a 3-year-old son, Tennessee, with current husband Jim Toth.

"My kids are wonderful," she told the Today show's Jenna Hager late last year. "They've been so supportive of what I do as a filmmaker, what I've been doing as an entrepreneur."
