    sorry, wasn’t that deacon’s response to “Monsters vs. Aliens”, not “Legally Blonde”?

    I love that bag that Reese is carrying. It looks big enough to fit a lot of things and I love that it has her son’s name on it. Does anyone know who makes them??

    Wait so he has a girls middle name and its his moms first name? Why? Isn’t the boys name Reece spelled with a C not an S. Why wouldn’t they give him a name that isn’t his mom’s first name?

    Reese is a last name somewhere in her family. Her actual name is Laura Jean Reese Witherspoon, so she carried on the last name and Deacon does now too.

    Amanda, I think Reese is spelled many different ways (Rhys is another way too) and I don’t think any of them are gender specific.

    Happy Birthday Deacon!
    Like kit kat said, the quote was actually in reference to Monsters vs. Aliens, not Legally Blonde. You can kind of tell given the mention of octopus aliens…
