Reese Witherspoon Admits She's Nervous For Daughter Ava's 13th Birthday
by Sarah Davis
Reese Witherspoon might be able to walk any red carpet and make any film a hit, but she tells People Magazine that she is nervous for her daughter to become a teenager! With Ava Philippe, one of two kids from Reese' first marriage with Ryan Philippe, on the brink of her 13th birthday, Reese says that parenting a teenager will be a "learning curve."
“This is the time where I start asking all my friends who have kids who are older, ‘What do you do about a cell phone? What are your rules about the computer? Is she allowed to go out with friends or is she not?’ So I learn a lot from other mothers", says the star of This Means War.
Despite her comments, however, Reese admits she has everything under control. She says that as her kids get older, they are able to have more intelligent conversations at the dinner table and they even teach her things. “My daughter will ask me something about famous composers, and I have no idea what she’s talking about. So that’s kind of nice. It’s like I’m learning from them.”
While celebrity gossip isn't really something that I'm fond of, I have always loved Reese Witherspoon and found inspiration in her because she's so down to earth. I think a lot of celebrities lie to the public to pretend they have everything covered and aren't affected by anything (at all), but Reese is always keeping it real. She generally always has a positive attitude about everything that happens to her.
