She later posted a photo of herself with a bunch of bright pink balloons, adding: "Feeling so much birthday love today! Thank you!!! I am one lucky gal." Although Reese's youngest child, four-year-old Tennessee, didn't make an appearance in her Instagram birthday photos, the star recently opened up about her son's pre-school struggles. Posting a photo of her little boy shrugging while holding up a piece of paper on which he had attempted to spell his name, Reese wrote: "When your name is TENNESSEE, it's a bit tricky to learn how to spell it #PreSchoolProblems."

Reese recently spoke about motherhood while promoting her new show Big Little Lies, which centres around a group of mothers whose children are in the same class at school. Speaking to ET, she said: “I think I'm sort of a blend of a lot of these different mothering styles. You have five different distinct parenting styles on this show, and we're all just trying to be the best parents we possibly can be, so I think it's always that question: Am I doing the right things? Am I exposing them to the right things? Am I disciplining the right way? And in this show kind of really brings up a lot of questions."
