New York: Actress Reese Witherspoon is back home with her newborn a week after delivering her baby boy, Tennessee James.

"They are both doing well," quoted a source as saying.

Tennessee was born Sep 27.

Witherspoon, 36, and husband Jim Toth, 42, who is a first-time father, are settling into their roles just fine.

"Everyone is bonding with the baby. And Jim has had a lighter workload and has been spending a lot of time at home with the baby as well," the source added.

A family friend said Toth was "just over the moon and really excited to become a dad".

Witherspoon is already on her feet. She was out and about last week in Santa Monica, California, stopping into a local eatery with her newborn.

"She definitely feels settled in her family life with Jim and her kids (Deacon, who turns nine this month, and Ava, 13). They can`t wait to start life with their new baby," the friend added.
