We’ve known Reese Witherspoon is pregnant for months, but the mom of two has stayed tight-lipped about her third pregnancy — until now.

While in Chicago this past weekend for an event at The Ritz-Carlton, the actress accepted a compliment while admitting, “Thanks, but frankly, I’m feeling very round tonight.” She then went on to joke with a Chicago Sun Times reporter while discussing the temptations of the city’s deep-dish pizza saying, “I’m always feeling like I’d like to eat everything in sight!”

This is the first time Reese has talked publicly about her pregnancy, let alone her cravings — even though she started to show signs of a growing baby bump in early spring.

After describing her current project to a reporter, Reese concluded by exclaiming, “After I finish that, I’m going to take a little time off — to go and have a baby!”

Expected in either late summer or early fall, the new addition will join siblings Deacon and Ava (their dad is actor Ryan Phillippe) as well as first-time dad and Witherspoon’s second husband, agent Jim Toth. Congratulations to the growing family!
