The star of the upcoming romantic comedy How Do You Know? takes her son with her on a date with her boyfriend, Jim Toth.

That’s one tough kid! Reese Witherspoon‘s 6-year-old son Deacon Phillippe went and hurt himself, forcing him to wear a cast on his right leg, but that didn’t stop the rough and tumble tot from venturing out in Santa Monica with Mom and her boyfriend, Jim Toth, on Saturday (Oct. 9). Deacon’s older sister, Ava, 11, is clearly impressed with her brother, writing the message, “To the toughest first grader ever!” on his cast.

Check out how much Deacon’s big sister Ava looks like her mom!

Reese, 34, clearly takes her role as a mom seriously, telling Ellen DeGeneres last year, “I say lots of mom things, all sorts of things I never thought I would say. Like, you know, I’m not your friend — I’m your mother.”

She added, “It’s not nice sometimes to be a mom, you have to be really tough. It is a very fine line. You can’t cross over it. Otherwise, they might think they’re winning.”
