Pregnant Legally Blonde 2: RED WHITE AND BLONDE star Reese Witherspoon couldn't persuade hunky husband RYAN PHILIPPE to leave with her at the after-film's premiere party on Wednesday (23JUL03) - so she went alone.

Reese, who is five months pregnant with Cruel Intentions's co-star Ryan's second child, was so exhausted she wanted to leave the event held at London's Harvey Nichols at 11.30pm - but Ryan decided to stay put.

A source tells British newspaper THE DAILY EXPRESS, "At 11.30pm she wanted to leave but Ryan didn't want to go. She was really tired. He walked her to the lift but he stayed until 1.30pm."
