Just hours before the court ruling, Reese - who has seven-month-old son Tennessee with Jim and children Ava, 13, and nine-year-old Deacon with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe - admitted she was fully aware she had drank too much alcohol that night and insisted she and Jim "know better" now after being disciplined.

Speaking on TV show 'Good Morning America', Reese acknowledged: "It's one of those nights.

"We went out to dinner in Atlanta, had one too many glasses of wine.

"We thought we were fine to drive and we absolutely were not. And it's just completely unacceptable. And we are so sorry and embarrassed.

"And we know better."
