Ryan, 47, captioned the slideshow with: ‘Homeschool graduation feat. @matt_sinn & @benmassing Reese w the cap grab”, adding a laughing emoji and “I played the main” as an added note.

Reese, 46, donned a blue and white polka dot dress with her blonde hair wavy and loose around her while beaming from ear to ear.

Ryan looked scholarly while serving as the mock principal for this son’s ceremony, rocking a black graduation gown, cap and glasses.

Deacon walked along the pool and shook hands with one person and then his father, grabbing his diploma, then shaking hands and hugging a third person.
