Pregnant Reese Witherspoon Goes Curly To Pick Up Film Award In Chicago

A few exciting things concerning Reese Witherspoon have happened this weekend:

1) The star finally confirmed those pregnancy rumours to a Chicago Sun-Times reporter.

2) Reese picked up the Gene Siskel Film Center Renaissance Award in Chicago for her acting work.

3) The star's usual hair formula (slicked straight with a fringe) was shaken up and replaced with some soft, pretty curls for the event in her honour.

Reese certainly has chic pregnancy style mastered (she chose a flattering cap-sleeved Vanessa Bruno dress for the occasion), although she did tell the Chicago Sun-Times that "frankly, I'm feeling very round tonight." She teamed her simple frock and feminine curls with minimal, natural-looking makeup and that famed pregnancy glow.
