Reese: My kids are in love with the baby!

Reese Witherspoon has gushed over the how “great” it is that her children all “help out” and take care of each other.

The 38-year-old actress has 15-year-old daughter Ava and 11-year-old son Deacon from her former marriage to Ryan Phillippe, plus two-year-old son Tennessee with current husband Jim Toth. And she says there’s a lot of affection in their growing family.

"It's kinda great because my older kids are just so in love with their baby brother and help out so much," she said during an appearance on America’s the Today show. "It's kind of like having this big extended family."

The active mother and actress spoke about what it’s like to bring up kids of varying ages. According to her, it works well but makes for a busy life.

"It's interesting. Two different things are happening all the time," Reese explained.

But even with all the juggling of various needs, the most important thing to the blonde beauty is that there’s “love” in the family. And she says this priority is certainly met.

"We always talk about in our house, the more people that love you, the better your life is," added the star. "I love it."

As well as balancing a multi-tiered family comprising children of all ages with her talent agent husband, Reese still maintains a solid career as an A-list actress.

Work-wise, she can currently be seen starring in biopic Wild, which is a departure from her usual romantic comedy niche. It follows the real life story of Cheryl Strayed, who embarked on a harrowing 1,100-mile solo hike.
