Jennifer Love Hewitt Reveals Exciting Family News

Jennifer Love Hewitt has been gracing our television screens ever since her breakout role as Sarah Reeves on the hit teen drama "Party of Five" (via IMDb), and she hasn't slowed down since! Hewitt, who was one of the most in-demand celebs of the '90s, had notable roles in classic films like "I Know What You Did Last Summer," "Can't Hardly Wait," and "Sister Act 2," and has starred in popular television series like "Ghost Whisperer," "The Client List," and "Criminal Minds." For the last three years, she's starred on the fan-favorite procedural drama "9-1-1."

Although Jennifer Love Hewitt has had a seriously impressive career spanning nearly three decades, her most important role to date is being a mom to her and her husband's two adorable kids, 7-year-old Autumn and 5-year-old Atticus. "I think before becoming a parent, love was something that sounded beautiful and was out there and portrayed in movies and felt at certain times when I met my husband," the "Criminal Minds" actress told Us Weekly of starting her family with hubby Brian Hallisay. "Then we very quickly started having kids, and the love that I feel for the person that allowed me to have that dream in having those children, and the love that you have for your children, it opens you up in a way that makes you more vulnerable than you could ever possibly imagine."

Jennifer Love Hewitt is expecting baby no. 3

Talk about a party of five! In an exclusive interview with People, Jennifer Love Hewitt revealed that she and husband Brian Hallisay are expecting their third child together, telling the outlet, "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. This has been such a pleasant, beautiful, surprising gift in this time, to be able to get to do all that again with another little human."

Hewitt also shared a picture of a positive pregnancy test on her Instagram account, and friends and fans of the actress wasted no time congratulating her and Hallisay on the news. "I'm so excited for you!! Congratulations," one fan wrote, while fellow celebs like Ruby Rose, Hilary Duff, and Jennifer Garner also congratulated their friend.
