Reese Witherspoon posted the sweetest message in honor of her husband Jim Toth’s birthday. On his big 51st birthday on Tuesday, Reese Witherspoon shared a photo of herself with husband Jim Toth that featured them on the beachside.
“Happy Birthday to my wonderful, passionate, curious husband who is obsessed with competitive gravel racing, Trager BBQs, eating crazy healthy foods (like MCT oil and athletic greens 🥬) the best tattoos artists, sunset drives and sports… Literally All of the Sports (especially Pickle Ball… want him to explain it?),” Witherspoon wrote next to the photo. “No one loves your family or friends more than you JT. So excited to celebrate you today! 💙🏌️✅🌟🚴🏻⚓️.”
The birthday post turned out to be a treat for the fans as the Legally Blonde actress rarely shares photos of her and her hubby. The last family post by Witherspoon came in June when she shared an adorable photo of Toth and their son, Tennessee James, 8, in celebration of Father’s Day.
“Every day is Father’s Day over here! 💙 These kids are so lucky to have a loving/ kind/ caring dad like Jim ⬆️ Happy #FathersDay to all the amazing Dads out there!,” she captioned the sweet snap.
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth got married in Ojai, California, at Libbey Ranch in 2011. Their relationship was a whirlwind in the beginning as met at a party in early 2010 and got engaged less than one year after meeting. For years the couple has been Hollywood’s adorable pair and have shared the most stable marriages.
Jim Toth is a Hollywood talent agent. Before her marriage with Toth Reese was married to Ryan Phillippe, with whom she had two children- daughter Ava, 21, and son Deacon, 17. Jim Toth and Reese Witherspoon together share an 8-year-old son, Tennessee.
What led to Reese and Jim becoming friends?
The actor and the talent agent met at a party shortly after Reese’s breakup with ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal. In an interview with Elle, Reese explained that “it happened out of the blue.” A drunk man was hitting on her and “making such an idiot of himself.” She went on to say, “Jim came over and said, ‘Please excuse my friend. He’s just broken up with someone.’ Jim is a really good friend, pulling him out of that situation. That’s just kind of who he is, a really good person.”
While the couple kept their engagement quite low profile, Reese talked about how she never thought she would get married again before meeting Jim.
She said, “Jim said, ‘I’m gonna show you every day what a good partner is, what a good person is. I’m going to take care of you. I’m gonna do this so much that you’re gonna get used to it.’ I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ I’ve never had anybody like that in my life.”
For the wedding, Reese wore a custom-designed Monique Lhuillier blush-hued gown and changed into a second Lhuillier design (a white silk mini dress) for the reception. What was interesting to see was the fact that her daughter, Ava, was her maid-of-honor and also wore a custom Lhuillier dress.
In a 2018 interview with Marie Claire, Witherspoon praised Toth for his support throughout the years.
“I get a lot of support from my husband, who cares deeply about equality and always tells me, ‘Why wouldn’t you call the person in charge of a company and have a personal relationship with them?'” she said of Toth. “He’s encouraged me to be outspoken.”
