AceShowbiz - Reese Witherspoon could not help but get emotional when reflecting on her relationship with her "adult children." Revealing that she has a close bond with her kids, the former "Big Little Lies" star gushed that she is "really grateful" for it.
The 45-year-old beauty discussed the topic when speaking to Tracee Ellis Ross for Interview's Summer 2021 cover story. "That makes me want to cry, the idea of having a long relationship with adult children," she first shared.
"I never expected the kind of relationship that I have with them, but it's so rewarding to be able to have kids that you can process life with a little bit, and they help me understand the complexities of what it means to be a human now," the mother of three went on adding. "So I'm really, really grateful that these little humans are in my life. Adult humans. I have two adult children now, Tracee. It's crazy."
During the chat, Tracee asked Reese what was the "last thing that gave [her] delight." In response, "The Morning Show" actress replied, "Dancing around my kitchen this morning to different top 40 songs. I'll do anything to make people laugh, it's sad. I'm sure my children find it horrifying, but my mother used to do the same thing."
Upon hearing Reese's answer, the "Mixed-ish" alum said she believes that the former's kids will "look back on it fondly." The 48-year-old further noted, "It will probably promote you having a long, fruitful, delicious relationship with your kids the way you do with your mom, because I know how much you love your mom."
Reese shares 21-year-old daughter Ava and 17-year-old Deacon with former husband Ryan Phillippe. She is also a mother to 8-year-old son Tennessee James, whom she shares with husband of 10 years Jim Toth.
