While Reese Witherspoon’s baby bump has become more than a little obvious, the star has kept mum about the pregnancy until now.
Witherspoon was accepting the Renaissance Award at a gala to benefit the Gene Siskel Film Center of the Chicago Arts Institute. She spoke to reporters about her new film, ‘Devil’s Knot’ and surprisingly answered questions about the baby bump in the room.
When a reporter commented on how great she looked that night, Witherspoon replied, “Thanks, but frankly I’m feeling very round tonight.”
And when she was later asked what she will do after filming the movie, the actress responded, “After I finish that, I’m going to take a little time off — and go have a baby.”
An official congratulations then to Reese and her husband, Jim Toth for their first baby together!
