Did time just bend and snap!?

Reese Witherspoon couldn't be a prouder mum, sharing with the world that her kids Ava and Deacon Phillippe have graduated from school.

Ava, who is 18, has officially finished her secondary school education, while her little brother, 14, will become a freshman.

Reese shares her two gems with ex-hubby Ryan Phillippe.

Showing off her southern charm, the proud mama boomeranged a snap of the siblings throwing their graduation caps in the air, with a sign behind them reading, "You did it!"

The 42-year-old, who is also mum to Tennessee, her son with husband Jim Toth, posted a cute photo of the spread which featured a delicious looking orange concretion served in a pitcher that said, "Cheers ya'll."

Ava and Deacon are all grown up!

Reese was joined by her kids when she received her Hollywood star back in 2010.

Ava also commerated her milestone, posting a flashback picture to her first day of high school.

"I graduated high school! (here's why I looked like at the beginning of it)."

The actress, who recently confirmed Legally Blonde 3 is a-go, admitted that having a career and being a parent is tough work.

"No one's really doing it perfectly. I think you love your kids with your whole heart and you do the best you possibly can," she told Southern Living in 2016.

"There are some sacrifices you make, and it hurts your heart sometimes. But my kids tell me they're proud of what I've accomplished and that just means everything. I grew up with a working mum, and I have so much respect for the things she did as a nurse and a teacher. I would never begrudge her that."

The family are no doubt very excited about this new chapter.
