Reese Witherspoon Felt She Didn't Have A Lot of Support After Becoming a First Time Mom

Reese Witherspoon is opening up about the experience she had as a first time mom at the age of 23.

During her appearance on Armchair Expert, the 45-year-old mom of three spoke to Kristen Bell and Monica Padman about the support she felt she didn’t have the first time around.

“I did not have a lot of support with my first baby and I learned really early, like this is not going to work,” she told the two.

Reese explained that she had “tried to muscle through for five months with Ava [Phillippe], just not sleeping and I became delirious.”

She did admit she was very lucky as well because she didn’t have to work those first few months.

“I was lucky enough to have money saved and I didn’t have to work but it’s just not a one-person job. I would even say it’s not a two-person job,” Reese added.

Reese shares Ava and son Deacon with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe; and also has a younger son, Tennessee, with husband Jim Toth.
