Despite their differences, Reese Witherspoon and her ex-husband prioritized their 18-year-old son graduating from high school. The proud parents can be seen smiling at the camera as they capture the memorable moment.

Congrats to you @deaconphillippe on Graduating High School! 💫So proud of the thoughtful, talented, kind & generous young man you have become. You light up our hearts and make us proud everyday. We 🧡you!

It's not the first time an award-winning actress has been spotted with her ex, as she appears to place her son's happiness first, as she did on his 18th birthday when they celebrated together at a restaurant.

Deacon Phillipe Graduates

Deacon in a bright orange cap and gown walks around a backyard pool and accepts his diploma from his "principal" dad. Then, he flings his cap in a typical graduate style. When gravity takes its course, the cap falls into the pool, and Deacon's swift mother reaches in to save the day's souvenir.

Reese, 46, wore a blue and white polka dot dress with her blonde hair in waves and loosed around her while beaming from ear to ear. On the other hand, the fictitious principal for this son's ceremony, Ryan, wore a black graduation gown, cap, and glasses.

Phillipe’s New Song

The 18-year-old spoke exclusively to HELLO! on the 20th of May at the Race to Erase MS gala, where he partied with friends and participated in a live auction that raised more than $100,000 on the night. Deacon has been working on music for several years, and his first single, Long Run, was released in 2020.

"I have been working hard on an EP about to drop," the teen shared, admitting that "it's coming soon" even though he can't give a date.

"It's really special," he added, revealing that he wouldn't give it "an exact genre, but it's very me," and saying that he is inspired by Post Malone "I am just trying to make music that I like and listen to," he said.
