Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt Is Expecting Her First Baby

Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt announces she's pregnant

Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt has announced she is expecting her first baby with her boyfriend, Brian Hallisay.

The 'Client List' star told Us Weekly:"We're so thrilled and happy to start a family," she said, adding that she is about three months along.

The 34-year-old actress and her co-star have been dating since last year.

The two originally met while filming the failed NBC sitcom 'Love Bites', then reunited on the set of their Lifetime series, on which they play husband and wife.

At the time, sources said she was 'in love' and ready to settle down.

"She loves Brian to death and thinks he's Mr. Right, but she's being very cautious about what she says publicly," a source said.

"She and Brian currently live in her condo together, but they're seriously looking to buy a house within the next few months and they've decided to start a family after that. Jennifer and Brian are on the same page – baby first then a big wedding."
