Los Angeles - Reese Witherspoon has given birth to her third child, naming him after a place close to her heart.
Witherspoon's publicist said Witherspoon and husband, Jim Toth, welcomed Tennessee James into their family on Thursday.
"Both mom and baby are healthy and the entire family is thrilled," Meredith O'Sullivan Wasson said.
The 36-year-old Legally Blonde and Walk the Line star lived in Tennessee when she was young.
Witherspoon is already a mom to Ava, 13, and Deacon, 8, from her prior marriage to Ryan Phillippe.
