Reese Witherspoon cracked some jokes about her new baby boy's bizarre name, Tennessee, while on her friend Chelsea Handler's show this week.
Handler, 37, confessed that she wasn't sure what to think of the name. "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."
The Oscar winner, 36, quipped back, "Or just a redneck!"
The Chelsea Lately host joked that the two thought someone was reading their texts which is why Witherspoon didn't reveal too much. "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.'"
This is the first child for Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth, and the third child for the actress, who has two kids, Deacon and Ava, with ex Ryan Phillippe.
