Reese Witherspoon Gives Birth To Second Son


Congratulations are in order for Reese Witherspoon and hubby Jim Toth because today we learn that the couple are now the proud parents of a newborn baby boy who was born today. As you may know, Reese has 2 children — Ava Elizabeth and Deacon Reese — with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe and this new baby is her first with Jim. The couple decided to name their first child together Tennessee James … click below to learn all the known deets about the baby’s birth.

Oh, baby: Reese Witherspoon is a mom for the third time. The actress gave birth to a son, Tennessee James Toth, on Thursday, Sept. 27, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth welcomed Tennessee James into their family today,” the rep says. “Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled” … In March, a source told PEOPLE that the actress, 36, was eager to have another child. “Right after the wedding, Reese expressed a desire to have a baby with Jim,” said the source. “Reese has been very open with her kids about her plans to expand the family.” Witherspoon, who initially kept her pregnancy under wraps, subsequently showed off her baby bump all around the world over the spring and summer — from appearances at the Cannes Film Festival to lunches and errands at home in Los Angeles. “Frankly, I’m feeling very round,” she told reporters in June.

Tennessee James is a pretty serious name for a newborn baby boy … but I have to say, I like it. It really does sound like Reese and Jim were eager to have a baby together and they didn’t mess around. I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if the couple end up having another baby sometime soon … BUT, now is not the time to speculate about more babies, now is the time to celebrate the arrival of the couple’s new little dude. Let’s send all of our love and congrats to the happy couple on their newly expanded family. Tennessee James, whatta name ;)

    Welcome to the world little Tennessee!

    The name Tenessee is absolutely hilarious because it was so predictable! When I read Tenessee I didn’t think ” Wow, that’s cool ‘ but I thought ” Wow, of course…. ”. Anyhow, I don’t like the name, but I hope this baby boy and everyone involved is happy and healthy!

    HOW SWEET! This means that SMG and Reese’s babies will grow up together. Bam! Haha, seriously, though, I’m very very happy for her. Even though her tough woman rep is pretty serious, it always brings me home when someone starts over and finds happiness.

    Love the name Tennessee, but Tennessee Toth?

    • Lulu

      My bet is they will call him T.J. In which case T.J. Toth is pretty cute.

    I can’t stand the name, to be fair. But I’m so happy she has another addition to the family. She seems like a very content mom.
