Legally Blonde actress, Reese Witherspoon shares how being pregnant when she was 37 years old was much harder than she was 23 years old.
Reese Witherspoon opened up on a YouTube video about how she was very happy that she had her children kind of young. She had her daughter Ava when she was 23 years old. Then she went on to have her son Deacon when she was 27 years old. Finally, Witherspoon had her daughter Tennessee when she was 37 years old. Tennessee is now seven years old and Reese wanted to share that she is happy that she didn't wait until later to have children because it was much harder to have children in her late 30's as opposed to her 20's.
In the video, she explained that she got pregnant with Ava when she was 22 years old and then she delivered her when she was 23 years old. She said that she was very scared to become a mom. She was nervous because she didn't know where life was going to take her and she didn't know what was going to happen with her career and her job. When she had her daughter she said that her whole entire life changed. She said that you can't go without thinking of another person. Witherspoon explained, "Everything you believe, every piece of food you eat, every piece of independence you have."
The actress explains that when kids are younger it is very physically taxing. It is much harder on your body when they are little and so she is glad that she was younger so she could keep up with them easier. "I had one at 23, one at 27 and then again at 37. And oh my god, having a baby at 37 was so much harder. This is just me being real." It was noticeably different for her to be pregnant and have a baby when she was 37 compared to when she was 23 years old.
Witherspoon explains that the most important thing for any parent to be successful is to have a support system. Ultimately it doesn't matter about money or anything it just has to do with who is there supporting you through your journey. She said that before you have children you want to make sure that your family structure is solid. She said that it is very important for you to discuss it with your partner and really figure out how things are going to work out logistically.
