Reese Witherspoon, Jim Toth Engaged
Reese Witherspoon is getting hitched again, two years after her divorce from first husband Ryan Phillippe was finalized.
A rep for Witherspoon, 34, confirmed that the Oscar-winning actress and Hollywood agent Jim Toth, 40, are engaged, joining an ever-growing list of celebrities who announced their engagements over the holidays. “They are extremely happy,” the rep said.
Witherspoon and Toth started dating early this year after she broke up with Jake Gyllenhaal in late 2009. The couple went public in March when Witherspoon celebrated her birthday. Back in October, a source told People that Toth was serious about taking his relationship with Witherspoon to the next level. “Jim knows Reese is the one for him,” the source said. “It’s what he’s been waiting for. [Getting engaged] is a natural step for them,” the source said at the time.
Usmagazine reported that Witherspoon’s children with ex-husband Phillippe are close to Toth, making it easier for the actress to take the big step. “They have vacationed together with Reese’s kids and everyone [got] along great,” a source said.
