Jennifer Love Hewitt Welcomes Baby; Announces Marriage
CNN reports that Jennifer Love Hewitt, 34, has secretly married her "Client List" co-star Brian Hallisay, 35. In a statement to the site, a rep for the actress revealed that Hewitt and "her husband" are "thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter, Autumn James Hallisay," yet did not include any announcement of the marriage.
The couple recently shared the news that they were expecting a baby and planned to be wed in June. At the time of their announcement, they said they were "looking forward to starting our family together."
Back in September, Hewitt spoke to People magazine about her excitement in becoming a mother. "I lost my mom a little less than a year and a half ago to cancer," she told the magazine. "Obviously, I got very lucky that even though I lost my mother, I lost her later in life, but it still had a profound effect on me. I've always wanted to be a mom. I had a great relationship with mine. I'm ready to pass on to my child all the great love that my mom had for me."
Hewitt began her acting career as a child by appearing in television commercials and the Disney Channel series Kids Incorporated. She rose to fame in teenage popular culture in her roles in the FOX series Party of Five as Sarah Reeves Merrin, and films I Know What You Did Last Summer and its sequel as Julie James.
The actress starred on the hit CBS television program Ghost Whisperer (2005-10) as Melinda Gordon, for which she won a Saturn Award in 2007 and 2008 for Best Actress on Television. She starred in the Lifetime Television series, The Client List (2012-13), and was previously nominated for a Golden Globe Award for the pilot movie. In addition to acting, she has served as a producer on some of her film and television projects.
As a singer, Hewitt has been signed by Atlantic Records and Jive Records, and is primarily known for her recordings in the pop genre. Her most successful single on the Billboard Hot 100 is the 1999 release "How Do I Deal", which peaked at No. 59.
