Actress and singer Jennifer Love Hewitt is extending her family after being pregnant with a third child. The actress made the announcement on Tuesday via Instagram that she is pregnant with a third child she’s having with husband Brian Hallisay.
The actress already has an amazing family with husband Brian Hallisay, their 5-year old son Atticus & their 7-year old daughter, Autumn. The actress told People’s Magazine that they were open to having a third child.
We had always been open to a third, but definitely didn’t think in the crazy year that the entire world was having that it would necessarily be this moment. I feel like we’ve been able to so far raise two really special kids who will be great role models.
Hewitt revealed that she was “proud” of keeping the world oblivious of her pregnancy, and that her even her character on the show “9-1-1” had her pregnancy arc on the show very recently.
She revealed that even her co-star Kenneth Choi joked “‘See? Playing pregnant got you pregnant!’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, I guess so.’ The craziest, most surreal moment was having to give birth while being pregnant. That was very interesting.” She also had some great things to say for her husband, who stuck with her through thick and thin.
During labor, he’s like a rock, solid … The only thing about him and labor that really makes me laugh is that he eats a lot of snacks. Usually in my hospital bag it is like an outfit for me and outfit for the baby, and then snacks for Brian!
The actress also said that she isn’t looking forward to being pregnant after this, and said that “I don’t think I could do another one. I think five is a great number.” While some might disagree, 5 is indeed a great number for a family.
