Leann Rimes was horrified to find a snake in her backyard.

The 'Can't Fight The Moonlight' actress discovered the reptile at her Los Angeles home and although it was harmless, she was left shaken by the incident while her husband Eddie Cibrian and stepsons Mason, nine, and five-year-old Jake, thought it was cool.

She tweeted: ''Omg I just found a snake in our backyard. It was a harmless snacks, but I can't stand them. Of course, all the boys in the house found it cool (sic).''

While she may not approve of Jake and Mason's love of snakes, LeAnn previously revealed she loves having them in her life.

Speaking about the boys - whose mother is Eddie's former wife Brandi Glanville - she said: ''I love them to death and we have a great relationship. I'm blessed to have them in my life; broken families are not easy, it takes a while to get your footing, but they've always been very accepting of me. I met them when they were two and six so they've known me a while now and we're finally finding our way as a family. I love hanging out with them, they're a lot of fun. I play referee a lot - a five year old playing baseball is the cutest thing in the world.''
