As a single mom, it was hard for Reese to date. But now she’s found a soulmate and is rushing to expand their family!
Reese Witherspoon may already be a mommy to two — daughter Ava, 11, and son Deacon, 7 — but now that she’s engaged to Jim Toth, she would love to have more children! “I would be lucky to have more kids,” the 34-year-old Water for Elephants star tells Style magazine.
As you all know, HollyMoms, the process of having kids is pretty darn draining, but Reese is ready for the challenge. “When it starts out it’s physically exhausting, and then it becomes very emotional,” Reese explains. “It’s been really fascinating. I’ve felt lucky to be able to guide them through life.”
Reese, who divorced Ryan Phillippe, 36, in 2007, seems quite happy to have found Jim because dating as a single mom has never been easy. “If somebody’s not interested in having a family, they don’t want to go out with you in the first place,” Reese says. “It kind of weeds out the guys who aren’t serious.” Have you had similar experiences, HollyMoms?
And though Reese has said in the past that she wouldn’t date a guy outside of the movie business, Jim has totally changed her perspective.”What I’m finding out is that it’s very comfortable to be with somebody who understands my career, but doesn’t do what I do,” she admits. “I think it’d be harder to meet someone outside of what we do. It’s a one-industry town, and those are the people you meet.”
Aww! Sounds like Reese has found a keeper!
