Ava also posted a family photo via Instagram on Thanksgiving Day.
“Super thankful for these guys,” she captioned the image of her brothers hugging.
Meanwhile, Ava and Deacon’s father, actor Ryan Phillippe, celebrated the holiday with his sisters.
“Thankful for my 3 sweet sisters & how they helped make me the man i am today. the good parts of me, anyway. srsly, i’ve known them forever & they are great! i love you guys,” he Instagrammed the family photo.
The Secrets and Lies actor, 42, recently opened up about co-parenting with his famous ex over the holidays.
“As a divorced dad, we trade off. Last year, my kids and I went to my parents in Delaware, this year they will be with their mom and I am shooting a movie up in Toronto,” Phillippe told ET. “I am going to fly down to Philly and just have a Thanksgiving with my parents and the kids get to be with Reese.”
He added: “You have to get to that point as a divorced parent, as any parent, where you’re not putting yourself first. You want the kids’ experience to be its own and not like, ‘Well, I need to have my time!’ We have been very good about that.”
Pop superstar Justin Timberlake covers the November issue of Variety and opens up about family life with wife Jessica Biel and their 18-month-old son Silas.
On fatherhood: “My life has changed and is changing. So it’s important to discover that there’s work you can do where you get more time with your family. I wouldn’t go on tour next week, because I wanna be with my son. I wanna be with my wife. What does touring even look like for me now? It’s such a luxury to be able to make those decisions: to be able to think about how you could do the work you used to do in a different way. As men, we’re always taught at a young age to be a man and have your priorities in order. And you get to a point where…it’s not about ‘being a man’—it’s about fulfillment. Which is a totally different thing.”
On his career: “I think everyone I’m working with right now knows that I’m notorious for being like, ‘Yeah let’s work.’ I have no idea when I’ll put it out, though. I’ll put it out when it’s done—when it feels right. I’m just in the now of now. I think it’s an effect of just enjoying my life more. For a long time I lived my life for a lot of other people, or for the idea that those other people had an idea of me…”
On hitting the recording studio with Timbaland and Pharrell Williams: “I wouldn’t say [my new material] is the antithesis of 20/20, but it does sound more singular. If 20/20 sounded like it literally surrounds your entire head, this stuff feels more like it just punches you between the eyes.”
On life’s lessons: “You’ll notice I say ‘I don’t know’ a lot. And you know the reason why? Because I don’t f–king know! I’ve realized that I don’t really know anything, and when you realize that, you realize a lot. The worst thing you can do is base all your creativity on some sort of ideal destination. Because you never get there. Which is not to say that I didn’t think more like that when I was young, but that’s a big part of growing up.”
Mom-of-four Victoria Beckham covers the November issue of Vogue Australia and opens up about family life with husband David Beckham and their kids: sons Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 14, and Cruz, 11, and 5-year-old daughter Harper.
On her priorities: “Family will always come first. I want to be the best mother and best wife I can be. I rarely go out … when I’m not working, we socialise as a family. David and I are very, very present as parents and I think that’s the most important thing. We both work but we have a great relationship with all our children.”
On being a working mom: “It is difficult to maintain it all in terms of being a wife, mother and businesswoman leading a brand. But I have a great team and I have a husband who is incredibly supportive. We support each other, and this is about being good partners. When I am away working, David makes sure he is here, and when he is away working I prioritise being at home.”
On their everyday life: “My four children and David are my first priority. When there’s a play on or a parent/teacher meeting, I’m there. David and I are rarely away at the same time. We do the homework, the bath time and the bedtime. Every day we take Harper to school. She gets her scooter out of the boot, scoots inside, and turns around to wave me goodbye. Paying someone to do those things for you to make your life easier isn’t wrong, but they’re important to me.”
Proud papa Evan Ross shared a family photo via Instagram. “This love is beyond words can explain,” The Hunger Games star, 27, captioned the image cuddling wife Ashlee Simpson and their 1-year-old daughter Jagger.
