Reese on the joys of motherhood and family

Normal_justlikeheavenposter_001_1 In a new press interview for the promotion of her movie Just Like Heaven, Reese Witherspoon reveals, "Having my children was the best moment of my life. You don’t realize this when you’re giving birth but you instantly know it when you assess your life."



Ava will start school next month so Witherspoon admits her life will change. "I always take care of the children first. Once I get their concerns sorted out, it makes career things easier to handle. I won’t be accepting films that require me to travel far [away] for a while unless Ryan can be home with the [kids]."

Witherspoon and Phillippe were married in 1999.

"I feel so lucky to be with my husband who is also my best friend. Some times I wonder how we still get along so well but we do…Ryan and I don’t pay attention to what’s being written about us. We know these things are fabricated to help people sell their magazines."

Thanks to Glamour Reese Witherspoon for this bit of the article.
