Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth rushed to the hospital Tuesday night, reportedly over concerns that their baby was to arrive early. Despite their concerns, Witherspoon is reportedly fine, and the impromptu hospital visit was only a precaution.
Reese Witherspoon’s bun isn’t quite ready to come out of the oven, but she took a trip to an LA hospital with husband Jim Toth Tuesday night just in case. “Doctors are keen on keeping her from going into an early labor so the baby’s development will go to full term,” said a source cited by the Miami Herald. Despite concern sparked over Witherspoon’s sudden hospitalization with reports dramatically claiming that the actress had been “rushed back to the hospital” after an initial visit, reports now say that she’s “perfectly healthy and fine.”
“There is no drama,” adds a source cited by MSN Wonderwall.
Witherspoon’s child will be the first for husband Jim Toth, and, according to RadarOnline, he’s nervous about an early labor.
“Jim is really worried about the baby,” said a source close to the family. “He’s a first-time father so this is all really new to him and he just wants everything to be okay.”
“He’s a bundle of nerves. Meanwhile, this will be Reese’s third child, so she’s been through this before and she’s trying to keep him calm,” the source added.
Witherspoon found herself in the news earlier in the month over yet another celebrity death hoax perpetuated by Twitter. When 70-year-old actor John Witherspoon was reported as dead on the microblogging site, users seeing the words “Witherspoon” and “dead” jumped to conclusions and started reporting the untimely passing of the 36-year-old actress. Faux-news websites quickly picked up on this, with one site reporting that she had been gruesomely stabbed to death.
Luckily, the rumors of Witherspoon’s demise were completely unfounded, and even John Witherspoon is still alive and well. Additionally, Witherspoon’s fans can breathe easy over her would-be baby drama too. The actress is doing just fine.
