During a Dec. 25 appearance on Handler's E! show Chelsea Lately, the 36-year-old mother of three once again had to address the issue of her pregnancy. Handler asked her point blank, "How did you get pregnant?"
"Umm... " Witherspoon replied, giggling. "I don't know. How do you think I got pregnant? Do you want to talk about this later? We don't have to talk about it right now."
The funny host (who's always ready with a zinger) immediately responded, "We don't have to talk about it now -- but I would prefer to!"
The talk show host, 37, then complained to the audience that while her This Means War costar was pregnant, Witherspoon "wouldn't tell me if she was having a boy or girl."
Handler remembered how at one point Witherspoon almost revealed her baby's gender.
"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," the comedian recalled. "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."
Witherspoon laughed aloud and interjected, "Or just a redneck!"
