Reese Witherspoon & Family: Lunch In L.A.

Mommy’s helper!

Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon stepped out with husband Jim Toth and all three of her children – Ava, 14, Deacon, nearly 10, and Tennessee, 1 – in Santa Monica, Calif. on Saturday (October 19). Looking every bit the doting big sister, Ava carried her baby brother as they left The Ivy after lunch.

“Somebody was saying to me the other day, ‘Oh, people get less interesting when they have kids.’ I just don’t think that’s true,” Reese recently shared. “I feel like I was so confused before I had kids, I almost got in my own way.”

She added: “Having kids made me clearer about who I was as a woman. I just wanted to exhibit good qualities for my daughter. I was a little competitive before I had kids — probably really competitive, to be honest. It really made me let go of that.”

Reese is currently working on the film adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s adventure memoir, Wild.

    Her/their kids are so cute. Ava is gorgeous and everytime I see her lately, she’s toting the tot and I think it’s sweet.

    I almost thought Ava was Reese for a second! And I’ve always thought she favours her dad, but wow. Very sweet that she’s always holding her baby brother. They seem like a lovely family.

    I thought it was Reese holding the baby, until I read the description.
