While quarantining at home with her kids last year amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Oscar winner joked that homeschooling was going “great.” She posted silly shots of her youngest son hanging upside-down throughout the house in August 2020, from the kitchen counter to the table.

Witherspoon went on to call the little one a “joy” to hang out with the following month. “Tenn, you are the brightest spirit, the most inquisitive soul and the funniest little guy I know,” the Louisiana native gushed via Instagram on his birthday in September 2020.

That same month, the Whiskey in a Teacup author celebrated her “incredible” daughter Ava’s birthday, followed by Deacon’s in October 2020.

So I’m really, really grateful that these little humans are in my life. Adult humans. I have two adult children now. It’s crazy.”
