When you’re a big name in the industry, you likely have a lot of choices for dates to big events. And even though she’s married with kids who’d probably be psyched to attend, Reese Witherspoon is bringing her mom to the Emmys. Best choice ever? Probably. After all, her mom has been her biggest fan since, well, Witherspoon’s birth.
This year, Witherspoon has been nominated for her role in the show Big Little Lies and figured her mom Betty would be the perfect person to share the honor with. By the way, it’s not just one category she’s nominated for — her show is up for 16 Emmys total.
The actress revealed the news on The Tonight Show, and told host Jimmy Fallon that Betty is more than psyched to cheer her on.
Witherspoon revealed that Betty can’t wait to see her favorites — even if she’s not totally sure of their names off-screen.
We’re calling it — Betty is simply adorable. And since it’s best to attend events with people who are equally as excited about them, we think that Witherspoon made the best choice ever in bringing her mom along.
The Emmys will be airing on Sunday, September 17th. We can’t wait to see photos of the two of them on the red carpet.
