Reese Witherspoon acts like a "schoolgirl" around new boyfriend Jim Toth.
The Oscar-winning actress - who split form long-term partner Jake Gyllenhaal last year - began dating the handsome Hollywood agent earlier this year and she is said to be completely smitten.
A friend of the actress said: "Reese is normally super-private about her love life, but she acts like a schoolgirl when it comes to Jim. She has a spark with him that was just never there with Jake."
Jim is as equally taken with Reese and has already shown his devotion by bonding with her two children, Ava, 10, and six-year-old Deacon, from her marriage to ex-husband Ryan Phillippe.
An insider added to National Enquirer magazine: "Jim is very steady. He used to be a bit of a player, but he wants to settle down. And he's had a crush on Reese for a long time!
"Reese likes that he doesn't go off for months to make movies, but he still does extremely well for himself. Jim has money, power and connections.
"And the children adore Jim. Whenever Deacon or Ava has a school event, Jim offers to be there. Any guy who makes that kind of time for her kids win high marks from Reese."
