In Chicago over the weekend for An Evening With Reese Witherspoon, and to receive the Renaissance Award at the annual summer gala, pregnant Reese finally opened up about expecting baby #3!
According to the Chicago Sun Times, when a reporter told Reese how great she looked, she responded, “Thanks, but frankly I’m feeling very round tonight.” This is the first time she’s publicly made reference to the fact that she’s pregnant.
She also said that avoiding cravings — such as Chicago-style deep dish pizza, was pretty tough. She said, “… it’s not easy. I’m always feeling like I’d like to eat everything in sight!”
She would not discuss baby on the way’s sex or possible names, but she revealed that she’s “very excited” about welcoming her third child — and first with new husband Jim Toth – later this summer or in early fall.
She talked about the film she’s currently shooting, Devil’s Knot, saying, “It’s about a crime that occurred in 1993. It happened in Arkansas, and it’s what I’d say is a very American story.”
And she also revealed her plans for what’s next after this flick is wrapped up: “And, after I finish that, I’m going to take a little time off — and go have a baby.”
Reese is already mom to daughter Ava and son Deacon with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. This is her first child with new husband Jim Toth.
We’re so excited for Reese and Jim.
Do you think they are having a boy or a girl?
