Reese Witherspoon was glowing Saturday night at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago, where the mom-to-be was awarded the Renaissance Award. She spoke about her pregnancy for the first time, telling reporters who commented on her glowing presence, “Thanks, but frankly I’m feeling very round tonight.”
“It’s not easy,” she said of trying to tame her pregnancy cravings in Chicago. “I’m always feeling like I’d like to eat everything in sight!” Who could say no to Chicago-style pizza – pregnant or not!?
This is baby number three for Witherspoon, 36, but her first with husband Jim Toth whom she married in March of 2011. She is currently wrapping up her latest film, Devil’s Knot, in Atlanta, and then it looks like she’ll be taking some time off to enjoy family life!
“It happens in Arkansas, and it’s what I’d say is a very American story,” she reveals. “And, after I finish that, I’m going to take a little time off — and go have a baby.”
