London: Heavily pregnant Reese Witherspoon is likely to have her baby anytime soon, as she was rushed to hospital twice in just two days.

The 36-year-old was reportedly taken in to see doctors on Tuesday night and then released, but returned again on Wednesday.

According to sources, the actress looked like she was about to deliver.

“Reese was actually taken to the hospital on Tuesday night with complications,” the Daily Mail quoted a source as telling Radar Online.

“She was released that night and then rushed back to the hospital again today. At this point it looks like she might have the baby,” the source said.

According to the source, Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth are concerned as her due date is not until early September.

“Reese and Jim are a little worried about having the baby so early.
“But it’s close enough to her due date that they’re confident the baby will be just fine,” the source added.

The Oscar winner has two kids 12-year-old daughter Ava and son Deacon, 9, from her previous marriage to Ryan Phillippe.

Although the new arrival will be Reese’s third child, it will be Toth’s first.

The pair had tied the knot in March last year at Witherspoon’s ranch in Ojai, California.
