News of the actress’ pregnancy broke in March but it was never confirmed – until now.
During ‘An Evening With Reese Witherspoon,’ hosted by the Gene Siskel Film Center at The Ritz-Carlton in Chicago June 23, the star admitted that “frankly, I’m feeling very round tonight.”
Witherspoon wore a black cap sleeve Vanessa Bruno dress and looked gorgeous, with a neat little baby bump.
When a Chicago Sun Times reporter suggested she should avoid foods like the city’s famed deep-dish pizza, Witherspoon (36) laughed and said,
‘Maybe, but it’s not easy. I’m always feeling like I’d like to eat everything in sight!’
The ‘This Means War’ actress will welcome her first child with husband Jim Toth (41) this fall said she’s ‘very excited’ about becoming a mother for the third time. Witherspoon shares custody of daughter Ava (12) and son Deacon (8) with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe (37.)
Reese Witherspoon is currently shooting ‘Devil’s Knot’ in Atlanta with Colin Firth (51.)
‘It’s about a crime that occurred in 1993,’ she told the newspaper. ‘It happened in Arkansas, and it’s what I’d say is a very American story.’
‘And, after I finish that, I’m going to take a little time off – and go have a baby!’
