Reese Witherspoon shows off sizable baby bump, craves Taco Bell

Reese Witherspoon

Here are some new photos of Reese Witherspoon and her growing baby bump. It was just last week when we learned of Reese’s third pregnancy, and Us Weekly claimed she was about 12 weeks along then. I’m thinking that she may be further along than that, though. Or maybe not, what do I know? Anyway, Reese is rocking some cute early-maternity styles. I like the dress and the cardigan, I think the boots are okay, and I love the bright purse. So, there you go. Now you’ve seen Reese’s bump. You’ll be seeing a lot of it for the next six months or so, but don’t expect her to be all Jessica Simpson about it.

Us Weekly released some more stuff from their cover story last week, some of which I already covered when I read the print edition. But here’s more:

Deacon Phillippe, 8, isn’t going to be the baby of the family for much longer. With famous mom Reese Witherspoon pregnant with her third child, the celeb kid and older sister Ava, 12 “will love having a baby brother or sister,” a source tells the current issue of Us Weekly of the Oscar-winner’s kids with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe.

Also psyched for baby? Witherspoon’s husband of one year, Jim Toth — although it took him some time to warm up to the idea of first-time fatherhood, the source explains.

“Before Jim met Reese, he wasn’t sure about having kids,” the source tells Us of CAA agent Toth, 41. “Being around her kids has really shown him what it’s all about.” Indeed, Toth is “super-close with the kids,” another insider adds, and now religiously attends Ava’s school swim meets and Deacon’s basketball games.

(Their papa Phillippe, 37, however, is definitely not out of the picture. “He wants to be around just as often now that Ava and Deacon have a family unit with Jim,” a third source explains of the actor. “They mean a great deal to him.”)

As for This Means War star Witherspoon, who is about 13 weeks along? “She wants to have this child and take time off,” an insider says. And her cravings? Taco Bell! The Oscar winner was spotted indulging at the Mexican fast food chain March 15.

[From Us Weekly]

Haha, I can’t imagine Reese going to Taco Bell. It just seems… out of character. Wendy’s? Sure. Arby’s? Totally. Going in for bean burritos? Not so much. Anyway, I’m surprised that Us Weekly hasn’t released the part of their story where it sounds like Reese is already plotting her post-baby career comeback. Maybe she finally gets that pretending to be some kind of sexpot-ditz wasn’t really the best career move?

    the only time I crave taco bell is when I’m drunk, and that’s the absolute worst time to eat it..

    • Jessica says:

      OMG!! I am the same way!! Bean cups, an enchirito, a meximelt, bean burrito and tacos about 15 of them!! LOL

    • maggs says:

      hahaha – drunk does make one crave taco bell. well, maybe not crave but at least be happy that there is still one fast food place open…

    • Dirty Martini says:

      ROFL…back in my partying days I used to go by a 7-11 and pick up a can of Wolf brand chili to eat when I got home~! ;-/

    • Shelly says:

      Ha ha! Me, too (or hungover, lol)! Double Decker, Mexican pizza, loads of crack-hot-sauce (that stuff is addictive).

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        I think we’ve all been there. Lots of extra hot sauce. We do call it taco hell though, and I haven’t eaten there in years. If I have to Rubios and even del taco is a bit better. They have good drunk fries, too. That was the only time it was yummy to eat at Denny’s too” 🙂

  2. Nessa says:

    She looks super cute in these photos.

  3. only1shmoo says:

    I’ve heard so many Americans rave about Taco Bell, but I never tried it. Now I’ve left North America and the chain is nowhere to be found…I feel like I missed out.

    • Leticia says:

      You haven’t really missed out on that much. But there is something comforting about their bean burritos and hot sauce.

      • Jessica says:

        I swear that they put crack in it to keep you coming back!! lol – it is sooo addicting!! lol

    • Elizabeth says:

      There are Taco Bell places in Canada where I live, so I would just google to find a location near you. Keep looking – I love their food. Its not like “real” Meximcan food (I’ve been there) but I still like it.

    • fabgrrl says:

      You really aren’t missing out. I only ate there as a poor college student because they used to have $0.59 bean burritos.

    • SamiHami says:

      You really haven’t missed out on anything worthwhile. Taco Bell uses Grade D meat in their food, which is the lowest grade considered fit for human consumption. Also, while it’s only recently been in the headlines, they have been using meat with the “pink slime” additives for many years. It’s beyond unhealthy and completely disgusting.

      When I want Mexican food, I go to a local Mexican restaurant owned and operated by a Mexican family that has been in my community for decades. No chain stores, locally purchased meat and produce.

      Taco Bell is not food. Blech.

      • orion70 says:

        I only eat the bean alternatives there so while I know it’s all junk food, I think that’s a bit better.

        I only have it a couple of times a year in any event because there’s neither one near me. But OMG when they had that volcano crunch wrap…so good.

    • MW says:

      I am not a Taco Bell fiend. Never have been. I love DEL TACO! I should not cop to that, I know. But it’s true.

    • ramona says:

      I live in Europe, and I’ve witnessed Taco Bell field trips to the few restaurants that aren’t on US Army bases. There’s one outside of Reykjavik I’ve actually taken my students to (I was forced), and one about an hour outside of London.

      I am deeply shamed that I have this information, let alone that I shared it.

  4. Bite me says:

    Taco bell is nasty … She should try Chipotle

    • Franny says:

      Chipotle > Qdoba >> Taco Bell

      • lrm says:

        Chipotle is disgusting and expensive for what it is! Even my 11 yr old doesn’t like it. We call is ‘crapotle’ in our house.

        Taco Bell is basically McDonald’s for mexican food-so if you take it for what it is, it’s not bad. I mean, it’s like craving a big mac-you know it’s not really nutritious, but it’s fun and you don’t do it every day.

        We live in so cal, and spouse is a so cal native, so perhaps we are spoiled. When i grew up in the north east, gringo tacos at the school cafeteria were the only mexican food i was exposed to. It’s everywhere now-we’ve come a long way, baby….

        But honestly, gringo tacos such as taco bells, are yummy at times!

        Chipotle? ick. It SHOULD be good, in theory, but it’s just not. La Salsa is okay. But Rubio’s is the best as far as chain mexican-and you can find them in more and more places these days….

        Anyway, yea, i’m spoiled with good mexican; the best is when your mexican neighbor friend invites you to dinner(: This is my top recommendation for good mexican.
        But as far as chipotle-just go to trader joe’s and buy ingredients and make something yourself, or buy their frozen mexican; it’s marginally better than that other crap.

        This concludes my personal mexican food discourse for the day!(:

      • Relli says:

        WORD Franny, but only, ONLY if the local taco stand is closed… mine burnt down last summer and JUST re-opened.

        LRM i hate to break it to you but Cali has some of the worst Mexican food ever. I know, I know how can it be it SO CLOSE to Mexico but seriously i have never had a taco in Cali without American cheese/cheddar, tomatoes and lettuce …. GROSS. Those Californios are a little too Tex-mex for this Mexican. But yeah what i make at home is always better.

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        Reiki you need to go to some stands I. East LA or Pomona. There is fantastic Mexican food in Ca with cotijo cheese, just gotta know where to look!

    • Esmom says:

      Chipotle is not necessarily tastier, but it is so much healthier. You can get brown rice. My kids are not really fans.

      • Franny says:

        Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but I respectfully disagree. For about $6 you get all fresh food, including quality meat, dairy and veggies. I can see why some kids may not love it, but I don’t think it can be called cheap by any means

  5. morganowski says:

    After your first baby, you tend to “bump out” sooner bc your uterus is acclimated to stretching out…so she could very well only be about 3 months, even though she’s noticably preggo. 🙂

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      ^^ This. With subsequent pregnancices your body’s like, “Oh yeah! I remember this!” and reacts much faster.

      And, as someone who was born and raised in SoCal I hate to admit that I have a secret love for Taco Bell. During my second pregnancy I probably ate it at least twice a week. It’s arguably ‘healthier’ than alot of other fast food chains, so I’ll splurge on some bean burritos or something with chicken occasionally. 😀

      • Isa says:

        Totally, with my second pregnancy my belly changed sizes everyday! Some days it would look huge and others it would look normal. I also was in maternity pants really early.

  6. Jen says:

    Her boobs are ginormous.

  7. Franny says:

    I’m really excited about this! I wasn’t really paying attention to gossip when she was pregnant with her first 2, so I’m excited to watch her throughout this.

  8. lisa says:

    Reese looks really good.

  9. fabgrrl says:

    Usually I would never even think about eating at Taco Bell, but…..the new Doritos taco shell have piqued my interest…..

  10. Samigirl says:

    She totally looks adorable. She’s super tiny, and it’s not her first pregnancy, so I would probably put her at least at 12 weeks, but maybe a little further. Possibly 14-18. Yay for Reese!

  11. evie says:

    Pregnancy can save a career in Hollywood! Good job, Reese!

  12. evie says:

    I forgot to mention that it’s so funny when I read that Jim Toth is a lovely person. If people know who is the real Jim…

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

      Please please give some more details 🙂

      • evie says:

        Mention his name to waiters and valets in Hollywood and you will see their reaction.

      • fabgrrl says:

        “waiters and valets” — so he is a bad tipper? Don’t get me wrong, waiters and valets usually work damn hard for paltry wages. But…being a clueless cheapskate…meh? Doesn’t seem *that* bad. Is there more to the story?

    • SwimTeamMom says:

      My 3 kids have been on Ava’s and Deacon’s athletic teams for several years now. Toth has only been to one event which was the mother/daughter triathlon. He has never been to anything of Ava’s and once to a flag football game and a basketball game of Deacon’s. Witherspoon hardly attends herself, it is always Ryan and once in awhile Ava and Deacon’s caretakers. Those times that Toth was there, there were photographers all over and the same with Witherspoon, hardly ever with Ryan. Jake Gyllenhaal was there more then Toth every has been. Why would someone write a down right lie about this? I heard from several others that this child doesn’t even belong to Toth? It doesn’t matter who the father is but lets be honest when writing about your kids especially when Ava and Deacon’s dad is always there. This article makes it sound like Ryan is never around, like a part time father, which is not true and trying to make Toth sound like something he isn’t.

      • Sugar says:

        thank-you! I had to re-read the part about Ryan wanting to be there even more because they mean a great deal to him. Uh no he loves them & he is their father. I remember a photo some years ago with him and Deacon @ a track getting ready to do laps together-so adorable. He’s that kind of dad!

  13. Nix says:

    Betting she gives birth before Jessica Simpson. 😉

  14. fabgrrl says:

    “Being around her kids has really shown him what it’s all about.”

    Well, Old Boy is sure going to be in for a surprise when Reese actually has a BABY, who will require *much* different care than school-age children.

    • Samigirl says:

      THIS THIS THIS. I know so many people with step children (my husband included) who really want kids of their own (which, don’t get me wrong, that’s awesome), but don’t take in to account how much easier a 4 year old is than a flippin newbie.

  15. Isa says:

    The nearest taco bell is 40 minutes away from me. Anytime I have to go to that town I get all excited because I can eat it for lunch. It’s a special treat!

    • fabgrrl says:

      I guess people really, really like Taco Bell. When my husband was stationed in Miramar he knew a guy that would go to Taco Bell every day. Dude! You are in San Diego! How many awesome, authentic Mexican food places did you have to drive past to get there? But to each there own :^)

      • fabgrrl says:

        Ug! “their own”!

      • Isa says:

        Ooh I couldn’t do it everyday. I’d weigh a ton and it’s not exactly healthy. It’s awesomely bad.
        My favorite tacos are what we simply call Mexican tacos. Corn tortillas, seasoned beef, cilantro, onions and lime. Mmmhmm. We make them at home. I can eat 7-9. Seriously. We had them about 4 times a week while I was pregnant with my son.

  16. The Bobster says:

    Didn’t she once have the Taco Bell dog in her purse for her “Blonde” role?

    Yo quiero Taco Bell.

  17. leuce7 says:

    I am Mexican, and grew up in So Cal, and *still* crave the Taco Bell every once and a while. There’s just something about their meat(less?) seasoning. Now I live on the east coast, and we’re rarely near one, we’ll buy taco seasoning and the rest of the works and have Taco Bell nights at home.

    Although, I must admit, when I’m back in California, I prefer Del Taco. They have churros!

  18. MSat says:

    You just have to give in to the cravings once in a while or you get obsessed with them. I craved frozen lime bars during my last pregnancy, and during my older daughter’s it was pumpkin seeds. So random!

  19. AnnaLeigh says:

    I craved Taco Bell too while pregnant. Not the bean burrito – mine was specifically a soft taco with only lettuce, tomato and cheese – and extra mild sauce.

  20. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Looks like I’m going to to the grocery store, now. If I can’t get a hold of some refried beans, things are going to get REAL ‘rill’ up in here.

    Maybe she should crave a not-shitty movie role. Are you interested in watching ‘Two Men Fight Over Reese Witherspoon Part 23’? No, clearly you’re not. And yet, she keeps returning to that unprofitable well. What`s that about the definition of insanity?

  21. Camille (The original) says:

    She looks great. I love that she isn’t wearing ridiculously high heels while preggers.
