Extremely happy: Reese Witherspoon announces engagement to Jim Toth

It's been a week for celebrity engagements. After Natalie Portman, Lily Allen and Hugh Hefner's happy news became known, Reese Witherspoon has joined the club.

The beautiful actress has confirmed she is to wed Hollywood agent Jim Toth, whom she has been dating for almost a year.

"They are extremely happy," Reese's rep told American publication US Weekly.

The 34-year-old Oscar winner started dating Jim in January after she split from Jake Gyllenhaal. They went public with their relationship two months later.

Forty-year-old Jim is said to have bonded with Reese's two children Ava, 11, and Deacon - seven - from her six-year marriage to Ryan Phillippe.

Jim - who has just been named one of the new heads of the Creative Artists Agency's motion picture talent department - is a regular on family outings, including their Sunday church visits.

Engagement rumours began circulating earlier this month after Reese's attractive other half was spotted at several upmarket LA jewellers.
