Reese Witherspoon is ''slowly crawling'' back to her pre-baby weight.

The actress gave birth to Tennessee James, her son with husband Jim Toth, two months ago but admitted she is finding it a struggle to regain her pre-pregnancy figure.

She told 'Extra': ''I don't know if I'm bouncing back. I'm slowly crawling back. You know, all of your joints feel wobbly, and your head is sort of confused.

''You just have to be gentle and patient with yourself and just sort of, you know...slowly get back to your health.''

Reese, 36, is smitten with Tennessee and recently gushed about what a ''beautiful, brilliant, joyful, perfect baby'' he is.

Speaking about a friend who recently called her on the way to hospital shortly before she was due to give birth, Reese said: ''She wanted to know how she was going to feel in that moment and what it would be like when you meet your baby for the very first time.

''And I was talking to Jim, my husband, and I said, 'Can you imagine describing that moment of pure joy that happens when your child is in your arms for the very first time.' I mean, what are the words?!

''We are parents that know the joy of having a beautiful, brilliant, joyful, perfect baby. That somehow heaven has opened up and delivered us an angel [who] looks adorable in every angle of an iPhone photo. And, in my case, looks gorgeous printed on a bag or a pillow or an iPhone cover - anything you can get on TinyPrints!''
