A Nashville, Tenn., judge has sealed the records in an usual case involving Reese Witherspoon's parents.

On Friday, the pregnant actress was seen walking her father into an emergency conservatorship hearing.

Earlier this week, Witherspoon's mother, Betty, petitioned a judge to have her estranged husband's recent marriage annulled. He apparently married another woman in January, even though he and Betty Witherspoon never divorced.

Betty Witherspoon believes the woman is trying to take advantage of her husband's weak mental state.
