Reese Witherspoon Welcomes New Baby: Other Stars with Large Age Gaps Between Kids

Reese Witherspoon has three children, with a 13-year gap between the oldest and youngest.

Reese Witherspoon and second husband, agent Jim Toth, are over the moon with new baby son, Tennessee James, born September 27.

But the state-named tot isn't Reese's first baby. She has two children with first husband, Ryan Phillippe, who she met at her 21st birthday party. Ava was born in 1999 and Deacon followed in 2003. At 13 and 9 years older than the new addition, Reese's older kids will no doubt be a big help in bringing up baby. Who are some other stars with large age gaps between kids?

John Travolta and Kelly Preston

John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston were happy with son Jett, born in 1992, and daughter Ella, who followed in 2000. But tragedy struck in 2009 when Jett died from an injury that occurred while he suffered a seizure.

The couple felt another child would help them deal with their loss, and Kelly gave birth, at age 48, to son Benjamin in 2010. Benjamin is nine years younger than sister Ella.

Lisa Marie Presley

Elvis' little girl married musician Danny Keough at age 20, and the two had two children, Danielle and Benjamin. Her personal life turned rocky over the next 20 years as she divorced Keough, and also married and divorced both King of Pop Michael Jackson and actor Nicholas Cage.

In 2006, Presley married musician Michael Lockwood, and two years later she gave birth to twin girls - 19 and 16 years after the births of her first two children.

Donald Trump

Donald Trump clearly knows how to make money, and he knows how to have children, as well: he has five of them, with some born to each of his three wives. With first wife Ivana, the couple had sons Donald Jr. and Eric, and daughter Ivanka. Second wife Marla Maples had a daughter, Tiffany, in 1993.

Currently, Donald is happy with his third wife Melania. She gave birth to a son, Barron, in 2006. Barron's half-siblings are older than him by 13 to 29 years!
