Witherspoon up for having more kids

Reese Witherspoon has revealed she would love to have more children.

The Legally Blonde star already has a daughter and son with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, but wants to add to her brood with her fiance Jim Toth.

"I would love to have more kids - my children are the best part of my day," she told Closer.

"I used to be very competitive and aggressive but when I had my first child at 22, it put my whole life in perspective and helped me get out of my very narrow-minded focus on my career. Having kids stops the endless cycle of self-obsession."

Reese, who got engaged after Hollywood agent Jim proposed over Christmas, feels fortunate to get another chance at love.

"I am lucky I've had a few shots getting second chances. That's nice," she admitted.

And the 34-year-old revealed she's still learning about love.

"I thought I knew everything about love and relationships in my 20s - the ignorance of youth is bliss," Reese continued

"As you get older, you start to realise that you don't really know anything and life is a great travelling journey. Life is unexpected - you just never know what's going to happen."
