Us Weekly caught up with the pregnant actress after arriving in Cannes with husband Jim Toth. Reese is in town to promote her film Mud alongside costar Matthew McConaughey at the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival. “The flight over was actually pretty good. I feel great,” she says. “I’m excited about showing the movie. The energy here is great!”
The Academy Award-winning actress, 36, and her new hubby attended the Ciroc Vodka Erno Laszlo dinner for The Paperboy later that night, where Toth doted on his expectant spouse.
“She and Jim were talking closely . . . he was clearly protective of her whenever they were standing up or walking around, practically putting both arms around her,” a source says.
Reese, who was “surprisingly not tired,” and her husband ended up heading out around 11:15 p.m.
“She was wearing a simple black dress and black jacket . . . She looked like she was more about comfort than being glamorous,” the source shares. “The baby bump is definitely taking shape now–Reese has a little waddle when she walks, which was cute!”
Baby-to-be will be Reese and Jim’s first child together. The Legally Blonde star is already mom to daughter Ava, 12, and 8-year-old son Deacon with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe.
