Ryan Phillippe is "so proud" of his and Reese Witherspoon's son Deacon after he made his acting debut.

The 'Cruel Intentions' stars' 18-year-old son makes his acting debut in season three of Netflix's 'Never Have I Ever', and his father could not be prouder of his son as he follows in his and his mom's footsteps.

Ryan gushed: “I am so proud."

In 2020, Deacon released his debut single, 'Long Run', a duet with pop star Nina Nesbitt.

And his father - who also has daughter Ava, 22, with ex-wife Reese, who also has Tennessee, nine, with husband Jim Toth - said that his son is more focused on his music than acting and is studying the art form at college.

He added that the teen is attending “college for music. That’s his primary focus. The acting thing he likes to do, and he will do according to what his appetite for it is, but his focus is primarily music.”

Deacon will drop a new mixtape on SoundCloud on Friday (05.08.22).

Ryan, 47, added to 'Entertainment Tonight': “The music, he’s actually dropping a mixtape this Friday on SoundCloud. It’s incredible.

“I’m so excited for people to hear. It’s really good stuff. I’m super proud.”

Ryan and Reese reunited for Deacon's 18th birthday last year.

The pair - who were married between 1999 and 2007 - both shared touching Instagram tributes to their son on his special day in October as they posed together with him to mark the occasion.

Ryan wrote on the image-sharing platform: "Happy 18th birthday to our gorgeous, smart, talented, and caring son.

"You are a true light in this world and are so loved by all who know you. We are lucky to be your mom and dad. Love you, pup..(I'd say we did pretty good @reesewitherspoon) (sic)"

The 'Legally Blonde' actress shared a series of snapshots of her son over the years, including one of him getting ready to blow out the candles on his birthday cake.

Reese captioned the pictures: "How did this happen?!! @deaconphillippe is 18?!!

"One day he was trading Pokémon cards, singing Bruno Mars songs, and playing American Ninja Warrior in the backyard."

"The next day, he is taller than me, cooking the family steaks on the grill and making his own music with his best friends. My heart is bursting with pride about the young man he is becoming. Happy 18th Birthday Deacon! I love you to the moon around the sun and all the stars (sic)"
