Reese Witherspoon is very happy to finally have her life back in order – her family life that is.
After filing for divorce from Ryan Phillippe in 2006, it’s been a rough road for the actress in her personal life at least.
“I was hard on myself when I got divorced. And until I got remarried, I don’t think I realized how stressed I was,” Witherspoon says in the October issue of Marie Claire.
“I don’t think I recognized how anxious I was about being a single parent.”
Witherspoon describes the divorce as “really traumatic”. She worried about the effect it would have on her two children, Ava and Deacon.
When Witherspoon met Jim Toth, an agent with CAA, she also worried about how her kids would react to a new man in her life.
But obviously Toth and Witherspoon hit it off and they married in March.
“Now I feel a great sense of relief and an incredible amount of support from my husband,” Witherspoon says.
“I got very lucky, and he’s wonderful. And so wonderful with my children. I’m very blessed.”
