'Extremely happy' Reese Witherspoon announces her engagement to Hollywood agent Jim Toth



'Extremely happy': Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth, pictured here earlier this month, have announced they are engaged

Reese Witherspoon and Hollywood agent Jim Toth are engaged after almost a year of dating, her spokesperson confirmed today.

The couple quietly began their romance in January shortly after her split from Jake Gyllenhaal and went public with the relationship in March.

'They are extremely happy,' a representative for the Oscar-winner told America's Us Weekly.

It follows a string of celebrity engagements over the holiday season, with Natalie Portman, LeAnn Rimes, Lily Allen, Hugh Hefner, Shania Twain and Ginnifer Goodwin all announcing plans to wed.

Reese, 34, has two children - Ava, 10, and 6-year-old Deacon - with her ex husband Ryan Phillippe. The pair split in 2008 after seven years of marriage.
Sources tell the publication that Toth has 'bonded' with the actress's children.

He has been a fixture in their lives for many months and often joins in on family outings, including their regular Sunday church visits.

Toth, 39, is an agent with the renowned Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and was named as one of the new heads of the company's motion picture talent department in September.

Whispers of an impending engagement began circulating earlier this month after he was spotted making the rounds at several high-profile jewellers in Los Angeles, including Harry Winston.

Reese joked about the rumours during her recent interview with Entertainment Weekly.
'My mom always texts me, like, "Are you getting married?"' she said. 'I'm like, "Mom, come on! You would know if I was getting married."'

Reese is currently starring in How Do You Know, a romantic comedy with Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, and Jack Nicholson.
