Jennifer Love Hewitt is about to fundamentally change her life, and she’s about to make her work situation a whole lot more complicated. Earlier today, the actress announced she and her Client List co-star/ boyfriend of fifteen months Brian Hallisay are expecting a baby, and apparently, they’re over the moon about the happy news.
Here’s what the couple told US Magazine about the upcoming life change…
"We're so thrilled and happy to start a family."
Fifteen months might not seem like a long time to be dating someone before taking such a big step, but these two have actually known each other for longer. They first began building a bond when they worked together on the short lived NBC show Love Bites. The program fizzled, but the two never forgot about each other. So, when they started working together again on The Client List, it didn’t take a long time for them to fall into each other’s arms.
Love Hewitt hasn’t been completely immune to personal life headlines during her career, but on the whole, she’s largely chosen to stay out of the public eye and live as quiet of a life as possible. That impulse, provided she sticks with it, should serve her very well in motherhood. After all, there’s really no benefit to consistently exposing her daughter to photographers and scandalous situations.
Pop Blend’s sincerest congratulations go out to both Jennifer and Brian. Here’s to hoping this child brings the two of them together and cements a bond that will last a lifetime.
