LOS ANGELES: Actress Reese Witherspoon says her 16-year-old daughter Ava makes her a "better person everyday".

The "Wild" actress paid tribute her daughter in an Instagram post to celebrate her birthday.

Captioning a photograph of Ava as a young girl next to a more recent photograph, she wrote: "Wow! My sweet girl turns 16 today! I am so blessed to have such a kind, compassionate, brilliant, artistic, all-around wonderful daughter who makes me a better person everyday. I love you @avaphillippe (sic)," reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The 39-year-old actress also opened up about prioritising her family and career.

"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. But, you know, right now I'm feeling sad missing my little 2-year-old, and my daughter's about to finish her freshman year of high school, and my son has a golf tournament this weekend that I hope I don't miss," she said.

"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 mom, and I have so much respect for the things she did as a nurse and a teacher. I would never begrudge her that," Witherspoon added.
