On a trip to Chicago to host Saturday’s (June 23) “An Evening with Reese Witherspoon,” the actress joked about her pregnancy, saying she’s feeling “very round.”
The statement, made to the Chicago Sun-Times, was Witherspoon’s first on-record comment about her growing baby bump and the child that is expected sometime in late summer or early fall.
“I’m always feeling like I’d like to eat everything in sight!” she said when asked if she was resisting the siren call of Chicago’s famed deep dish pizza.
Witherspoon declined to share whether she’s having a boy or a girl and wouldn’t talk about potential baby names, but she did say she’s “very excited” about the new addition to her family.
This will be the 36-year-old’s third child and her first with new husband Jim Toth. Witherspoon’s first two children, 12-year-old Ava and nine-year-old Deacon, were fathered by Reese’s ex, Ryan Phillippe.
