Reese Witherspoon made sure that the most important people in her life had a say on whether or not she added to her family: her kids.
While Reese Witherspoon has not yet officially confirmed her pregnancy, everyone else is doing it for her. Now one insider reveals that adding a baby to her brood was not just the decision of her and her second husband Jim Toth, but her kids had a hand in it, too.
“Right after the wedding, Reese expressed a desire to have a baby with Jim,” a source close to the actress told People.
“All along, Reese has been very open with her kids about her plans to expand the family, especially [because] Ava is at a sensitive age, Reese always makes sure to consult with her. She is very respectful of Ava’s feelings.”
Witherspoon has two children with her first husband Ryan Phillippe: Ava, 12 and Deacon, 8. The family is pictured at right on a fun day out at Disneyland.
“Reese has worked nonstop, but Jim takes great care of the kids in L.A. while she is out of town,” the source said of the blended family. “Jim and Ryan also get along fine and they have shared the responsibility while Reese is working.”
“Reese gushes that Jim is great with her kids,” the source added. “And the kids seem to really like him.”
“[She] still gets giddy when she talks about Jim. She says that she feels so happy that he came into her life. They are a great couple and bring out the best in each other.”
One thing’s for sure: That’s going to be one good-looking baby!
