"Wherever we were, whether it was in the woods or at a go kart track or white water rafting, he encouraged me to be strong & fearless."

Reese doesn't often share photos or videos of her family but occasionally posts glimpses of their life together to Instagram.

Fans thought her son Deacon looked just like his uncle

In January, the petite blonde uploaded a sweet snap of her youngest child lying on the floor bonding with the family's pet black Labrador, Major, which fans found especially heart-warming.

The Little Fires Everywhere actress captioned the image: "Tennessee's best bud, Major the lab puppy.... plus a very important Minnie Pearl t-shirt cameo," referring to the family's equally adorable pet pooch Minnie.

Reese has three children

Reese introduced her fans to young Major in early January while Minnie joined the family last November.

The Hello Sunshine founder has also owned a white bull terrier named LouAnn since 2015.
