After months of speculation, Reese Witherspoon has finally shared that she is expecting her third child.
For the first time, the actress opened up about her pregnancy at last week's event "An Evening With Reese Witherspoon," hosted by the Gene Siskel Film Center at The Ritz-Carlton in Chicago.
"Frankly, I'm feeling very round tonight," said the 36-year-old.
When a reporter asked if she avoided foods like Chicago's deep-dish pizza, Witherspoon replied, "Maybe, but it's not that easy. I'm always feeling like I'd like to eat everything in sight!"
The actress has two children with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe but will welcome her first with husband Jim Toth this fall. The child will join siblings Ava, 12, and Deacon, 8.
Witherspoon's pregnancy has not slowed her down though. The actress is currently filming "Devil's Knot" alongside Colin Firth.
"It's about a crime that occurred in 1993," she told The Chicago Sun Times. "It happened in Arkansas, and it's what I'd say is a very American story."
The actress also revealed her plans for after the film's release.
"I'm going to take a little time off," said Witherspoon. "And go have a baby!"
In a past interview, Witherspoon opened up about her second marriage to Toth, saying, "It happened out of the blue," according to Elle magazine.
She explained that Toth rescued her from a drunk man at a mutual friend's party.
"Jim came over and said, 'Please excuse my friend. He's just broken up with someone,'" said the actress. "Jim was a really good friend, pulling him out of that situation. That's just kind of who he is, a really good person."
The actress was hesitant to remarry after her painful and public divorce from Phillippe. Despite her reservations about marriage, Witherspoon agreed to marry Toth in 2010.
"Jim said, 'I'm gonna show you every day what a good partner is, what a good person is. I'm going to take care of you. I'm gonna do this so much that you're gonna get used to it,'" explained Witherspoon of Toth.
In addition to acting, the Oscar Award-winner continues to work with her production company called Type A Films.
