In the post meant to celebrate the little boy's birthday, Witherspoon posed with Tennessee in what appears to be a restaurant. The celebrant smiled for the camera, while his mother got caught while laughing. In the accompanying caption, she referred to it, writing,
"Boy, this kid makes me laugh. Happy 7th birthday to my sweet boy, Tennessee. Here's to a day filled with chocolate cake, Beyblades, and dog cuddles."
The actress's fellow celebs joined her in celebrating the birthday boy in the comment section. Jennifer Garner wrote,
"Happy Birthday, Tennessee, "
While his sister, Ava Philippe, wrote,
"We love you, Tenn!"
Witherspoon shares the birthday boy with her husband, Jim Toth, while she had Ava, and her first son, Deacon, with Ryan Philippe. The "This Means War" star considers motherhood a huge part of her life and got candid about it recently.
On the new episode of her YouTube channel's "Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine," Witherspoon spoke on how difficult it was to have Tennessee at 37. She said,
"I find having kids is more physical, and it's really hard on your body… having a baby at 37 is so much harder. This is me being real."
The "Cruel Intention," star added that she was grateful she had her two older children earlier, but it came with some uncertainties. She said:
"I've been a mom since '99. I got pregnant with Ava when I was 22, and delivered when I was 23. To be totally honest, it was scary. I was scared. I didn't know what it was going to do to my life and career."
With the successful career, the Oscar-winning actress has to her credit, everything worked out fine, and her advice to other mothers is to plan, and have a sound support system.
