PHOTOS: Reese Witherspoon Takes A Break From Consoling Robert Pattinson To Show Off Huge Baby Bump

She’s done her bit for good friend Robert Pattinson in recent days, sheltering the heartbroken actor from the world’s glare, so it was only right Reese Witherspoon took some time out for a girly lunch in LA yesterday.

The actress has reportedly taken Rob under her maternal wing and into her Californian home following the revelations of girlfriend Kristen Stewart’s affair. Yesterday though it was time for Reese to escape from the drama as she dined with a friend at an exclusive restaurant.

The pregnant actress used the occasion to show off her blooming baby bump as she left the meal. Looking gorgeous in a floaty navy dress and nude heels, Reese beamed for the waiting paps whilst she tottered over to her waiting car.

Earlier in the restaurant the actress could be seen cooing over her lunch companion’s adorable little girl, leaving little doubt that the pregnancy hormones are in over-drive!

Meanwhile there was no sign of Rob, Reese’s ‘Water For Elephants’ co-star. According to reports this week the kind-hearted actress has given her friend the run of her secluded $7million ranch in Ojai, California after the devastated star left the home he shared with Kristen.
