These photos were taken the same day that Reese Witherspoon was hit by a car in Santa Monica, California -- presumably before the incident that thankfully turned out to be minor.
Although the images of Reese, her kids, and new hubby Jim Toth are charming, what struck us about the photos is how Reese's daughter Ava, 11, is growing up to be the spitting image of the Legally Blonde star.
Check out the insert photo -- that's actually Reese around the same age as Ava! (BTW, Ava turns 12 tomorrow -- Happy Birthday!)
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Witherspoon, 35, was hit by a car in Santa Monica Wednesday as she was jogging.
Police say Witherspoon was crossing the street when a car being driven by an 84-year-old woman clipped the Oscar winning star.
Fortunately, the driver was only going 20 miles per hour when the incident happened, so Reese was not badly hurt.
She was checked out at a local hospital and then released.
The driver was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
