Third child stole my brain: Reese Witherspoon

New York: Actress Reese Witherspoon says she has been struggling with memory loss since giving birth to her third child last year.

Last September, the ‘Legally Blonde’ star and her husband Jim Toth became parents to Tennessee James, a sibling for Witherspoon`s two children with Ryan Phillippe, 13-year-old Ava and Deacon, nine.

However, Witherspoon, 37, reveals her memory has deteriorated since she gave birth and she finds it difficult to remember simple tasks, reported New York Daily News.

"Ever since I had the baby, I can`t remember anything. Serious, this child stole my brain. I`m losing friendships over forgetting to get back to people. But you can`t keep up with everything. I`ve got a 13-year-old, a nine-year-old and a baby.

"It`s like CNN ticker tape running through my mind at all times: `Where is Ava? She`s OK. Good. Where is Deacon? He`s OK. Good. Where is Tennessee? Is he OK? Yes. Great. Back to Ava...` It doesn`t stop."

Witherspoon`s comments have emerged a little over a week since she was arrested for disorderly conduct. She was held on April 19 after arguing with a traffic cop who had pulled over the car Toth was driving in Atlanta, Georgia. The talent agent was also booked for driving while intoxicated.
