Reese Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth welcomed their first child together on Wednesday.
Reese Witherspoon’s representative confirmed the happy news to People magazine.
The couple has named their son Tennessee James.
“Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth welcomed Tennessee James into their family today,” her rep told People magazine.
“Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled.”
Tennessee James is Reese Witherspoon’s third child – she also has two other children with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, 37, including daughter Ava, 12, and son Deacon, 8.
The former couple and Cruel Intentions co-stars split in 2006 after seven years of marriage.
Reese Witherspoon, now 36, then went on to marry Jim Toth, who is an agent with CAA, in March 2011, during a romantic ceremony at her ranch in Ojai, California.
Last month, the Legally Blonde actress spent a couple of days in a Los Angeles medical facility after it was feared she was going into early labor.
After being discharged, doctors told her to take it easy at home and get plenty of rest.
Reese Witherspoon recently admitted she was planning a career break to raise her baby.
In June, she said: “I’m feeling very round tonight. After I finish [filming] <<The Devil’s Knot>>, I’m going to take a little time off – and go have a baby!”
