London, November 28 (ANI): Reese Witherspoon has revealed that she had never held a baby in her life before the birth of her first child, and that she was afraid that she would not be a good mum.
The Legally Blonde star, who shares custody of her kids Ava, 9, and Deacon, 5, with her ex-hubby Ryan Phillipe, said that she had taken time to get used to being a mother.
The first time I held Ava was the first time Id ever held a baby in my life. Id never babysat for anyone and I didnt have any cousins, the Mirror quoted her as telling the Ticket.
I had that fear of not being a good mum. It took me a long time to feel really comfortable in the role of being a mother, she added.
On being asked if her divorce had affected her life with the kids, the star further said: The most important thing is to be grown-up about it and not let any kind of feelings affect how you deal with your children. We raised our kids just to be happy. (ANI)
