Reese Witherspoon's unusual date nights

REESE Witherspoon spends date nights helping her kids with their homework.

The 38-year-old actress has revealed her and husband, Jim Toth, spend their time together with the children.

She told Us Weekly: "Our date nights are mainly helping our kids with homework," before joking that the couple then go to sleep.

Reese has three children - two from her previous relationship with Ryan Phillippe, Ava, 15 and Deacon, 10 as well as two-year-old Tennessee with Jim.

Meanwhile, the 'Legally Blonde' star admitted she wanted to raise her children near her hometown so they could be with her family.

She recently explained: "Sometimes it's really difficult for me, being far away from home.

"I never imagined that my children wouldn't grow up next door to my brother's children. Or my mum and dad wouldn't constantly be around. At least I have a lot of southern friends in LA - I gravitate toward them."

Reese and Jim have reportedly purchased a new home in Los Angeles. The couple bought the Pacific Palisades estate - which was previously owned by architect Ken Ungar - for $12.5 million.
