Jennifer Love Hewitt is pregnant with her first child!
The actress is expecting her first child with her ‘Client List’ costar Brian Hallisay. The couple released a joint statement today confirming the news.
‘We’re so thrilled and happy to start a family,’ Jennifer and Brian, both 34, said in the statement to Us Weekly.
US Weekly reports she’s around three months pregnant.
Jennifer and Brian have been dating for around 15 months after getting reacquainted on their Lifetime show The Client List.
Before that they starred together on the short-lived NBC series Love Bites.
Jennifer’s happy announcement comes a year after her mother Patricia passed away after losing her battle to cancer.
The actress has been vocal about her desire to start a family for several years.
In a 2010 interview with Us Weekly, she said: ‘I would love to to have babies. . . one day. I’m obsessed with babies!’
Hewitt dated her Ghost Whisperer co-star Jamie Kennedy from 2009 to 2010.
She was previously engaged to Scottish actor Ross McCall, but they split in late 2008 after starting dating in 2005.
