Marriage a 'relief' for Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon has admitted getting married again is a "relief".

The Oscar-winning actress, who tied the knot to film agent Jim Toth in March, had been concerned about finding a man who would accept her two children with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, whom she divorced in 2006.

"I was hard on myself when I got divorced. And until I got remarried, I don't think I realised how stressed I was," she told US Marie Claire.

"I don't think I recognised how anxious I was about being a single parent."

Despite seeming to have a successful career and two gorgeous children, Reese admitted to suffering some difficult blows after she split from actor Ryan.

Describing the break-up as "really traumatic", she was worried about the effect it would have on kids Ava, 12 this month, and seven-year-old Deacon.

"Now I feel a great sense of relief and an incredible amount of support from my husband," she continued.

"I got very lucky, and he's wonderful. And so wonderful with my children. I'm very blessed."
