Jennifer Love Hewitt is enjoying two major events in her life: the birth of her baby, and a wedding to fiancé Brian Hallisay.
As to the first announcement, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Hallisay welcomed a baby girl on Tuesday, according to a statement by the couple’s rep.
“Jennifer Love Hewitt and her husband Brian Hallisay are thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter.”
Hewitt’s publicist, Sarah Fuller, told the Associated Press in an email, the couple is “thrilled” with the birth of their child, whom they have named Autumn James Hallisay. The happy news was first reported by Us Weekly.
The couple also announced their wedding, but reps did not provide any details as to when they tied the knot.
According to E! News, The Client List actress, in which Jennifer Love Hewitt and Brian Hallisay play husband and wife, held a lavish baby shower in October at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles.
The event, created by celebrity planner Mindy Weiss, had guests bring gifts wrapped in yellow and green packaging. The room was decorated in the non traditional black, yellow, and white.
At the time Jennifer Love Hewitt and her then fiancé did not know the sex of their baby, as they wanted to be surprised.
Hewitt lost her mother to cancer last year and shared her thought on the tragic event with E!.
“I really feel like, while it’s been the most devastating blow to my heart and my spirit, something about this baby has been a gift from her,” she explained.

“It has somehow been able to replace incredible grief with incredible joy. I’m very, very, very grateful for that. As every day approaches, I ask myself a lot why is she not here for this? Am I going to get through it without her? But I know she’s out there and she’s watching me and helping me and I’m going to be the best mother possible in her honor.” Jennifer Love Hewitt says candidly.
As to how she and husband Brian Hallisay feel about the emotional year, she says they are ready for their new roles as parents.
“This is the most important thing to us,” Jennifer said.
Unfortunately, or maybe not, Jennifer Love Hewitt’s show The Client List has been canceled by Lifetime. Perhaps this will allow her to spend more time with baby Autumn.
