Reese Witherspoon hasn't said much since Us Weekly broke the news of her pregnancy in March — until now.

During An Evening With Reese Witherspoon, hosted by the Gene Siskel Film Center at The Ritz-Carlton in Chicago June 23, the star admitted that "frankly, I'm feeling very round tonight." (Witherspoon wore a cap sleeve Vanessa Bruno dress.)

When a Chicago Sun Times reporter suggested she should avoid foods like the city's famed deep-dish pizza, Witherspoon, 36, laughed and said: "Maybe, but it's not easy. I'm always feeling like I'd like to eat everything in sight!"

The This Means War actress — who will welcome her first child with husband Jim Toth, 41, this fall — said she's "very excited" about becoming a mother for the third time. (Witherspoon shares custody of daughter Ava, 12, and son Deacon, 8, with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, 37.)

Witherspoon is currently shooting Devil's Knot in Atlanta with Colin Firth, 51. "It's about a crime that occurred in 1993,” she told The Chicago Sun Times. "It happened in Arkansas, and it's what I'd say is a very American story."

"And, after I finish that, I'm going to take a little time off — and go have a baby!"
