Reese Witherspoon has been mum on the news that she is expecting her third child, but she finally broke her silence and admitted that she’s “feeling very round.”
The 36-year-old pregnant star received the Renaissance Award in Chicago, where she was complimented on her looks and she gamely replied “Thanks, but frankly, I'm feeling very round tonight."
Wearing a navy blue dress and with her blonde hair in curls, Reese said she was “very excited,” about the baby, which will be her first with her new husband Jim Toth and will join older sister Ava and older brother Deacon.
Reese even said that she has pregnancy food cravings, saying it is hard to avoid Chicago’s famed deep-dish pizza.
“Maybe, but it’s not easy. I’m always feeling like I’d like to eat everything in sight!”
The Oscar winner was honored at a benefit An Evening With Reese Witherspoon at the Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Reese didn’t say whether she was having a boy or a girl, but she did say after she wraps the movie Devil’s Knot that she’s working on with Colin Firth she has big plans.
“I’m going to take a little time off -- and go have a baby.”
