Reese Witherspoon's funny sense of humour had everyone in stitches.
The This Means War co-stars got a chance to get some things straight on E!'s Chelsea Lately on Tuesday night when it came to Reese's pregnancy with her third child.
The 36-year-old Oscar winner had the audience clutching their sides in laughter when she joked about 'Tennessee' being a redneck name.
That, of course, is the name she and husband, CAA agent Jim Toth, gave their son - and first child together - who was born September 27.
Nashville, Tennessee is also the state where Reese was raised and so it has sentimental value.
The laughter started when Chelsea, 37, asked Reese not so innocently, 'How did you get pregnant?'
'Umm...,' Reese began with a little giggle. 'I don't know. How do you think I got pregnant? Do you want to talk about this later? We don't have to talk about it right now.'
Chelsea didn't let up, saying, 'We don't have to talk about it now, but I would prefer to.'
The talk show host revealed to her audience that when she asked the then-pregnant Reese what she was having, Reese 'wouldn't tell me if she was having a boy or girl.'
But, as Chelsea relayed, Reese almost let the cat out of the bag in a text message.
'Then you said, "I'm pretty sure someone's reading our texts," and I said, "Please don't text me again because I don't want to be blamed,"' Chelsea revealed.
'Then you had the baby and you named it Tennessee and I still couldn't figure out if it was a boy or a girl.'
