Jennifer Love Hewitt isn’t hesitating to bare her blossoming baby bump. So when the sun in Los Angeles was beaming brightly recently, so were Jessica and her husband Brian Hallisay during their family walk-and-talk with their little girl Autumn James, reported E! News.
With their only child Autumn now 1-year-old, Jessica and Brian unveiled their baby announcement in January. No word yet on whether they’re expected a baby boy or girl.
When Brian, who co-starred with Jennifer on The Client List, married the Criminal Minds actress in a very private wedding, she was already pregnant with Autumn but successfully hid the news.
“I was already pregnant and I couldn’t tell anybody,” Jennifer confessed to Ellen DeGeneres.
Hallisay gave Jennifer what she calls a “push present” in the form of a necklace, reported Us Weekly. Hewitt posted it on Twitter.
“#ProudMomClub @PushGift,” wrote Jennifer for the caption of her selfie.
So how does the pregnant mom stay healthy? Jennifer is extremely careful about her diet, she told Shape.
If you looked in her refrigerator, you’d see lots of fresh, healthy food, Hewitt revealed. And she also recognizes her tendency to eat the wrong foods at night, so keeps them out of her home.
“Instead of piling up food in my fridge that says ‘Come eat me!’ I keep enough for only a couple of days. And I rarely have treats around that might tempt me late at night, which is when I usually crave something really fattening. What am I going to do? Drive out at 11 at night just to satisfy a craving? No, that’s crazy.”
Expressing concern that some actresses seem fixated on staying thin, Jennifer says she’s not afraid to eat.
“Hollywood used to revolve around women with curves, like Liz Taylor and Marilyn Monroe,” mused Hewitt.
“Not that long ago, I went to this celebrity luncheon, and I was the only person in the room eating. The other girls looked at me like I hadn’t gotten the memo, but I was hungry! All of these girls were afraid that if someone saw them eating, it would be a disaster. It makes no sense at all.”
However, not all women in the entertainment industry agree with her. Recently, as the Inquisitr reported, supermodel Sarah Stage found herself the target of criticism during her own pregnancy.
Although she’s eight months pregnant, Sarah has stayed slender.
“Being thoughtful is free. @EliteModelLA Model. Mama to Be,” Sarah wrote for her Instagram caption.
