Making a special holiday appearance on "Chelsea Lately" on Tuesday (December 25), Reese Witherspoon talked about being a mother to her new son, Tennessee.
During their chat, pal Chelsea Handler revealed that the "Legally Blonde" star wouldn't tell her the sex of the child before the birth. After hinting the answer in a text, the 36-year-old made the host immediately delete the text in case someone read it.
The friends shared a recent story of a Christmas party that Reese threw, at which Chelsea, who is Jewish, didn't know the words for some of the carols.
The singing failure occurred despite Ms. Witherspoon handing out pamphlets with the lyrics. She joked with the host, "Well, I knew that from when we worked together on that movie. You don't really read the scripts."
