Reese Witherspoon Is the Cutest Fan of Her Son's New Pop Music Career

The star's son, Deacon Phillippe, just released a new single with TikTok star Loren Gray.

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe's son, Deacon Phillippe, is making a name for himself in the music industry, and no one is more excited than his mom and dad. On Oct. 27, Phillippe announced his new song's upcoming release, asking his Instagram followers, "Who's ready?!!!" to which his famous folks quickly showed their support. Mom Reese responded with multiple raised hand emojis, while dad Ryan replied with a double set of exclamation points. Deacon's big sister, Ava Phillippe, also joined in with some familial support, commenting, "Let's goooo" with two fire emojis. The 17-year-old aspiring EDM producer dropped his latest single, "Love for the Summer," a collaboration with TikTok star Loren Gray, on Instagram on Oct. 30, garnering even more praise from his family.

Witherspoon posted the single to her Instagram the day it was released, calling it the "song of the weekend."

"I think they call this a Bop or is it a Banger? A Bangin' Bop?" she jokingly asked her followers.

"I'm doing both! Bopping and banging," replied model and actor Camila Alves McConaughey. "So fun!!"

Author and influencer Robin Arzón also lent her support for the track, writing, "Bop!"

The song is the second track released by the aspiring EDM star (who goes by the mononym Deacon professionally). His first single, "Long Run," featuring Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt, was released in July.

In an Oct. 30 interview with Billboard, Deacon revealed that quarantine has provided him a unique opportunity to expand his repertoire as a musician and producer. "I've been using this time to perfect my skills and work on mastering a lot of production stuff," Deacon explained. "I learned to DJ, which is quite a process, and I also started learning the ukulele."

Deacon, whose recording studio is in Witherspoon's house, added that he "couldn't have a more supportive family," explaining that they've been a major source of creative inspiration for him. "When I make songs, the first people I show them to are my mom, my dad, my brother, and my sister," he said.

Deacon isn't the only celebrity kid who's made a name for themselves in the music world, however. Read on to discover which other A-list offspring have musical aspirations.
