Congratulations to Jennifer Love Hewitt, who is not only a new mum, but also married to her The Client List co-star Brian Hallisay. The couple confirmed the happy news to Us Weekly via their rep. The little lady (that’s right, it’s a girl!) came into the world on Tuesday, November 26 and the happy couple named her Autumn James Hallisay – we’d say that’s pretty mild on the spectrum of out-there celebrity baby names.
Hewitt remained relaxed and positive throughout her pregnancy.
"Jennifer Love Hewitt and her husband Brian Hallisay are thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter," the rep says. "Autumn James Hallisay was born on November 26."
An ever trustworthy “source” adds for the magazine that the couple were married during a private ceremony away from the media. Back in July, Hewitt told Us Weekly that she and her beau had decided on keeping the little one’s gender a surprise until the birth.
"You sort of have these pictures in your mind of what [the baby's going to look like]," she said. "I'm really excited to see what he or she is going to look like!"
The actress and her now husband Brian Hallisay met on the set of The Client List.
She also explained that unlike most future parents, she was trying to keep her pregnancy as stress-free as possible. "I think most people, when they're getting ready to be a mom, they go, 'Oh my gosh, I have to have all of the answers right now,' but every kid is different, every parent is different and every child and parent relationship is different, so you just sort of have to wait until you're in it and do the best that you can to try to be Zen in the middle of it all," she explained. Now, following a relatively uneventful pregnancy, Hewitt and Hallisay have welcomed a healthy and happy infant. Congratulations to the new parents.
