Reese Witherspoon is giving marriage another go.
Witherspoon was previously married for seven years to actor Ryan Phillippe, who is the father of her 11-year-old daughter Ava, and son Deacon, 7. The pair divorced in 2008.
News of Witherspoon’s new engagement comes on the heels of the actress opening up on her past failed relationships in Glamour.
“You have to own whatever part of it you’re responsible for,” she said of those experiences for the mag's January issue. “It takes a lot of soul-searching. It’s important to go through that, because hopefully you won’t repeat yourself.”
When asked if it was easier to date Toth than her past high-profile squeezes, Witherspoon told Glamour she did not want to badmouth her exes.
“But what I’m finding out is that it’s very comfortable to be with somebody who understands my career, but doesn’t do what I do,” she said.
Witherspoon is the latest high-profile name to announce an engagement or new marriage ahead of the New Year.
Country crooner LeAnn Rimes and actor Eddie Cibrian; Natalie Portman and her “Black Swan” choreographer, Benjamin Millepied; and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner and 24-year-old gal pal Crystal Harris also confirmed their engagements this week.
