Reese Witherspoon welcomed her third child, a son, on Thursday, September 27. The baby is her first child with husband Jim Toth.
Witherspoon, 36, and Toth named the baby Tennessee James Toth, Witherspoon's spokesperson said in a statement to The Associated Press. "Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled," the statement said.
Though Witherspoon was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, the actress lived in Nashville, Tennessee when she was a child.
The actress and Toth, an agent for Creative Artists Agency, wed in March 2011. She was previously married to actor Ryan Phillippe from 1999 to 2006. The actors are parents to daughter Ava, 13, and son Deacon, 8.
Witherspoon debuted her baby bump at the premiere of "Mud" at the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival on May 26.
The actress, who appeared earlier this year in "This Means War," stars in "Mud." Matthew McConaughey portrays an escaped fugitive named Mud who is hiding on an island in the Mississippi River and with the help of two teenage boys, tries to evade bounty hunters and track down his true love (Witherspoon).
The film does not yet have a release date for the United States.
