Reese Witherspoon isn't letting her pregnancy slow her down!

Looking stylish in a cute purple skirt, the pregnant star hit the tennis courts Wednesday at the Brentwood Country Club near her home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles.

In the action-shot photo, the 36-year-old star grimaces as she prepares to hit an approaching tennis ball. Witherspoon, who is pregnant with her third child and first with husband Jim Toth, showed off her impressive arm muscles while swinging her tennis racquet with all her strength. The actress is an avid runner and was even photographed taking a two-hour hike with a pal the same day Us Weekly broke the news of her pregnancy on March 21.

The This Means War star has been dealing with family problems recently.

On May 11, Witherspoon accompanied her parents, Mary Elizabeth "Betty" Witherspoon and Dr. John Witherspoon, in court in Davidson County for an emergency hearing on her father's bigamy case. In court papers filed May 8, Mary accused John of bigamy and asked that his Jan. 13 marriage to Tricianne Taylor be annulled. Witherspoon's parents separated in 1996, but never officially divorced.
