Reese Witherspoon gives birth to son

  • Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon gave birth to a baby boy on Thursday and has named him Tennessee James.

    It is her first child with husband Jim Toth. Witherspoon has two older children, 12-year-old daughter Ava and 9-year-old son Deacon, with first husband Ryan Phillippe. The couple divorced in 2007.

    "Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth welcomed Tennessee James into their family today. Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled," Witherspoon's spokesperson said in a statement.

    Witherspoon married talent agent Toth in California in March this year.

    The 36-year-old actress was raised in Nashville, Tennessee. She won an Oscar for her work in the 2005 film Walk the Line, based on the life of legendary musician Johnny Cash.
