Reese Witherspoon a mom again at 36
LOS ANGELES—Oscar-winning US actress Reese Witherspoon has given birth to her first child with new husband Jim Toth, a baby boy called Tennessee James, her publicist announced Thursday.
The actress, who won her Oscar in 2006 for her role in “Walk the Line” and who has two children by her first marriage, is doing well as is the infant.
“Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth welcomed Tennessee James into their family today,” her publicist said in a statement. “Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled.”
Witherspoon and Toth married in March last year at her ranch estate in Ojai, California, with guests including Renee Zellweger, Salma Hayek, Sean Penn, Scarlett Johansson, Tobey Maguire and Robert Downey Jr.
She was previously married to actor Ryan Phillippe and has two children with him. The couple divorced in 2008.
As well as her best actress Oscar, her turn in 2005’s “Walk the Line” about country music legend Johnny Cash also earned Witherspoon a Golden Globe and a BAFTA award in the same category.
She was also nominated for Golden Globes for 1999’s “Election” and 2001’s “Legally Blonde.”
In September last year Witherspoon suffered minor injuries after being hit by a car while out jogging. Earlier this year her mother took her father to court on bigamy charges.
