Two celebrity kids are celebrating birthdays today!
Ava Phillippe, daughter of Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon turns 12 today! Ava was born on 9/9/99 and is the big sister to Deacon, 8. Reese shared that raising her kids with values is of the utmost importance to her:
“I’m teaching the children what we were taught growing up–a real set of rules, discipline, and love. Children thrive with a sense of structure, and they’re frightened without it. The ways you behave, how you speak to other people–those things don’t leave you… The other day my son said to me, ‘Mama, why do I have to take off my hat in the house?’ I was like, ‘Because it’s respectful. That’s why you take off your hat.’ And he goes, ‘And I always have to take off my hat in church, too!’ It really bothered him. But those values sustain a life. Respect. Faith. Empathy. Compassion.”
Sparrow Madden, son of Joel Madden and Nicole Richie, is blowing out two candles today. Sparrow James Midnight is the youngest child of the couple. His sister Harlow turned 3 back in January. Nicole shared last year on motherhood:
“Your whole life changes and your priorities change 100 percent… In the best way possible.”
Happy Birthday to Sparrow and Ava!
