On March 26, The Couple Will Be Witnessing Their 12th Wedding Anniversary
In a timely revelation, the star of “Big Little Lies” announced just two days before the couple’s 12th wedding anniversary, which is set for March 26. Witherspoon, 52, and Toth, 52, were married in 2011 at her California ranch after dating for about a year before getting hitched.
Witherspoon, who has two eldest children, Ava, 23, and Deacon, 19, with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, recently spoke in glowing terms about her former Creative Artist Agency employee’s relationship with her two oldest children after their nuptials.
In a September 2011 interview with Marie Claire, she said, “I got lucky. I did. I got fortunate. He’s so wonderful with the children. I’m very blessed.” The following year, Witherspoon gave birth to Tennessee, her and Toth’s son, due to their relationship.
During the 10th anniversary of her marriage to Toth, the actress took to Instagram to mark the occasion. “Celebrating ten years of marriage to my sweet hubby. What a special day with all of our dear friends. Looking back, I can’t believe it has gone so quickly!” remarked the actress when captioning a photo taken of her and her husband at their wedding on Instagram.
During last December’s holiday season, Witherspoon shared her previous social media update with Toth, a picture of the pair standing before their decorated Christmas tree with their blended family.
