Back in June, Jennifer Love Hewitt announced her pregnancy and engagement at the same time on the cover of Us Weekly. The baby-daddy (and fiancé) is Brian Hallisay, her costar in The Client List. These are just some new photos of Love out and about with her bump in Beverly Hills. She seems to be carrying very well, and I especially like her maternity dress. Feminine and pretty without being cloyingly girly. I would wear the hell out of a non-maternity version of this dress too.
I’m assuming Jennifer is well into her second trimester, although we don’t really know when she’s due beyond “this fall”. Love was on a red carpet for “Mickey Through the Decades” a few days ago, and she discussed her cravings:
Pregnancy is the perfect opportunity to indulge a sweet tooth — and Jennifer Love Hewitt isn’t holding back.
“Cupcakes seem to be a thing, but that’s always been a thing,” the mom-to-be told PEOPLE during the Mickey Through the Decades Collection launch event in Burbank, Calif. on Saturday.
“I want to blame it on pregnancy, but it’s really always been my favorite. Now, I have the ability to eat three instead of one, which is nice.”
To balance out the batches of baked goods, Hewitt, 34, has continued her almost-daily workout regimen. The exercise, she says, isn’t just about staying in shape.
“I’m doing yoga and cardio and all of that stuff, so it’s been good,” Hewitt shares. “I think it’s been making a big difference in how I feel, too.”
As Hewitt and her fiancé Brian Hallisay anticipate the arrival of their first child this fall, the expectant actress is “taking time off” to enjoy both her engagement and pending parenthood. “I’m still waiting to hear what happens with [my show] Client List,” she adds.
Ha, ask Jessica Simpson how that “now I can eat three cupcakes” thing turned out. But I have to say, I was expecting Love to really go full-on Jessica Simpson for this pregnancy, and she’s not. At least, not yet.
