When it comes to the gene pool lottery, Reese Witherspoon's daughter Ava certainly won the jackpot.

While she also has an incredibly good-looking father in the form of the Hollywood actor Ryan Phillippe, it appears that Ava is looking more and more like her mother each day.

The 13-year-old was the spitting image of the 36-year-old Legally Blonde star as she stepped out to dinner with the heavily pregnant actress, her step-father Jim Toth and nine-year-old brother Deacon, over the weekend.

The family went for dinner a popular Venice eatery Gjelina.

With identical flaxen locks and similar heart-shape face, Reese and Ava could not have looked more alike.

The teenager wore a cute printed skirt, a grey T-shirt and combat boots for the outing.

She accessorised with some geeky-style blue rimmed glasses and small bag across her shoulder.

Meanwhile, Reese was in full pregnancy glow as she stepped out for the meal with her family.

The actress looked ready to pop while showing off her sizeable baby bump in a black form fitting dress.

She smiled happily as she held hands with her husband Jim, who wore light green trousers and a black polo shirt.

Deacon was also dressed to impress for the family meal, looking smart in a shirt and tie.

He seemed a little shy when he saw the photographers, but Reese helped calm his nerves by holding his hand.

Reese has so far kept quiet
over the due date, but going by the size of her bump it looks like she
could be welcoming her third child any day now.

A report recently claimed she had been suffering from some bizarre cravings.

A
source said: 'Reese has been waking up at 3am and craving seaweed
smoothies, pickles and peanut butter all together, plus chicken wings
smothered in barbecue sauce.

'In the day, she only wants bananas
and strawberry yoghurt – by the litre. She usually sticks to a healthy
diet so she's hoping the cravings stop soon.'

The
Oscar-winning actress marred Toth last March at her family estate in
California, which was watched by several Hollywood stars including Renee
Zellweger, Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn.

They started dating in January 2010, shortly after she ended her romance to Jake Gyllenhaal.

Reese's seven year marriage to first husband Ryan Phillippe ended in 2006.
