With her daughter Ava‘s 13th birthday looming, actress Reese Witherspoon admits she feels a bit unprepared for the teenage years.
“I don’t know anything about teenagers, so I’m on a big learning curve here,” the This Means War star tells UK TV show Daybreak. “This is the time where I start asking all my friends who have kids who are older, ‘What do you do about a cell phone? What are your rules about the computer? Is she allowed to go out with friends or is she not?’ So I learn a lot from other mothers.”
Also mom to 8-year-old son Deacon, Reese says that even though there are always new challenges to face, she’s enjoying watching her kids get older.
“It’s great to have older kids. There’s a little sadness as they’re growing up and walking away from you, but it kind of changes the whole dynamic. We have really funny dinner conversations now, and they know more about certain topics that I ever, ever knew.”
When it came time for questions about having another another baby, the 35-year-old star remained tight-lipped during the interview, but did say, “I like babies, too. I hug all my girlfriends’ babies. They’re all so stinking cute!”
Reese and her new husband Jim Toth will be celebrating their 1st wedding anniversary next month.
