Reese Witherspoon Welcomes Baby Boy Tennessee James

Reese Witherspoon is officially a mother of three. The Oscar-winning actress gave birth to her third child, a son named Tennessee James Toth, on Thursday, her rep tells People magazine.

“Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth welcomed Tennessee James into their family today. Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled.”

This is Witherspoon’s first child with Toth, who she married in March 2011 after a year of dating. Tennessee joins her two children with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, Ava, 13, and Deacon, 8.

Last month, the Legally Blonde star spent a couple of days in a Los Angeles medical facility after it was feared she was going into early labor. After being discharged, doctors ordered Witherspoon to take it easy at home and get plenty of rest. Reese recently admitted she was planning a career break to raise her baby:

“I’m feeling very round tonight. After I finish [filming] The Devil’s Knot, I’m going to take a little time off – and go have a baby!”
