Reese Witherspoon is known and beloved as Hollywood’s southern belle, so it’s no surprise that her 19-month-old son, Tennessee, is becoming a budding country music fan (after all, he shares the same name as his mother’s home state). And who knows, he could very well become a future Johnny Cash. How so? He’s already walking the line, ya’ll! Well, sort of.
“I Crawl the Line,” Reese wittingly captioned the photo of her son crawling next to an acoustic guitar. “#Johnnycash #Startingearly #Countryfan4life.” Get it? Johnny walked the line, Tennessee crawled the line? Oh Reese, you slay us!
We can’t say we’re surprised that this little tyke is becoming a country fan at such a young age. After all, his mom is June Carter Reese Witherspoon, who happens to have a sweet set of country vocal pipes! In case you forgot, the 38-year-old earned her very first Academy Award in 2006 for her betrayal of country crooner June Carter in the film, Walk the Line, opposite of Joaquin Phoenix.
Since Reese’s days as Mrs. Cash, the actress has taken some time to grow her little family with her husband, Jim Toth. The couple tied the knot back in 2011, and soon welcomed their first child together in September 2012.
“Right after the wedding, Reese expressed a desire to have a baby with Jim,” a source told People. “Reese has been very open with her kids about her plans to expand the family.” Reese also has two children from her previous marriage with actor Ryan Phillippe — daughter Ava, 14, and son, Deacon, 10.
It’s been a minute since we caught a glimpse of baby Tennessee, and thanks to social media, we’re able to see this little tot doing what he does best: be adorable. All we have to say is, keep the cute photos comin’, Reese!
