This Means Bump!
As multiple insiders confirm in the new Us Weekly, out now, Reese Witherspoon is pregnant with her third child -- her first with husband Jim Toth. And while the Oscar-winning actress, who turns 36 Thursday, isn't planning on announcing the big news, the evidence is becoming clear.
On Wednesday, just as Us Weekly broke news of her baby-to-be, Witherspoon and a female pal were photographed taking a two-hour hike in the Santa Monica Mountains near her home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles. "You could definitely see a small bump, which she covered-up with a loose fitting sweatshirt," an observer says. The star "was in good spirits" during the strenuous hike, pointing things out to her friend along the trail.
"Her baby bump is still small, but very noticeable," the onlooker adds. "But she is in great shape -- the hike was not that easy!"
Just a week and a half ago, in between promotional duties for her flick This Mean War, Witherspoon hung out by a hotel pool March 10 with gal pals in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. Already mother to daughter Ava, 12, and son Deacon, 8, with ex Ryan Phillippe, the star covered up her small baby bump in a casual blue cotton dress worn over a bathing suit.
Last summer, a less-modest Witherspoon famously showed off her impressive bikini body -- and newly acquired tattoos -- on an extended Hawaiian vacation with husband Toth, 41, and Ava and Deacon.
Says a pal: "Reese is right around 12 weeks." Eager to add to her brood, she and CAA agent Toth "have been trying to get pregnant" since their March 2011 wedding, another source says.
