Lucky Mom

Reese cares deeply about her children and is heavily engaged in their lives. The Legally blonde actress is "grateful" for her relationship with her two adult children.

The idea of having a long relationship with adult children makes me want to cry,

the Hello Sunshine founder told Interview magazine in June 2021.

"I never expected to have the kind of relationship that I do with them, but it's so rewarding to have kids with whom you can process life a little bit, and they help me understand the complexities of what it means to be a human now."

So I'm extremely grateful to have these little humans in my life. Human adults. I now have two adult children. It's insane."
