LOS ANGELES (AP) — Reese Witherspoon has given birth to her third child, naming him after a place close to her heart.
Meredith O'Sullivan Wasson, Witherspoon’s publicist, said Thursday that ‘‘Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth welcomed Tennessee James into their family today. Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled.’’
The 36-year-old ‘‘Legally Blonde’’ and ‘‘Walk the Line’’ star lived in Tennessee when she was young.
Witherspoon is already a mom to Ava, 13, and Deacon, 8, from her prior marriage to Ryan Phillippe. Toth is an agent for Creative Artists Agency.
