Jennifer Love Hewitt gave birth to girl Autumn James, secretly wed Brian Hallisay

Jennifer Love Hewitt

These are paparazzi photos of Jennifer Love Hewitt about a week ago outside her home in Hollywood. I honestly have to give it up to JLH. If the paps had caught me out and about during the “ready to pop” stage of pregnancy, I would have given it to them Kristen Stewart style. Let’s just say my middle finger would have been quite active, and my unborn child would have been mortified. In contrast, Jennifer is completely humane to her pap stalkers. I have no idea how she does it.

Anyway, here is some great news! Jennifer gave birth on Tuesday to a baby girl, Autumn James Hallisay. Here’s even more of a surprise — JLH and Brian Hallisay secretly got married in an undisclosed ceremony. Wow. She’s just full of surprises these days. Here’s the details from Us Weekly:

Baby Love Hewitt! Jennifer Love Hewitt welcomed her first child, a beautiful baby girl, with Brian Hallisay on Tuesday, Nov. 26, her rep confirms exclusively to Us Weekly. And that’s not all — she and Hallisay also secretly tied the knot!

“Jennifer Love Hewitt and her husband Brian Hallisay are thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter,” the rep says. “Autumn James Hallisay was born on November 26.” A source adds that the couple “got married recently in private.”

Us Weekly exclusively revealed in June that the 34-year-old actress was pregnant and engaged to her 35-year-old Client List costar. “We’re so thrilled and happy to start a family,” the couple said in a statement to Us at the time. Hewitt showed the first glimpse of her diamond ring and burgeoning baby bump during a romantic trip to Florence, Italy that May.

In July, Hewitt told Us that she and her then-fiance were deciding to keep the gender of their first child a surprise. “You sort of have these pictures in your mind of what [the baby’s going to look like],” she said. “I’m really excited to see what he or she is going to look like!”

I am so happy for Jennifer. This is exactly what she’s always wanted. I hope she got one of her three preselected rings from Tiffany’s from Brian. Really, I do! I have a feeling that motherhood will come naturally to her. Mazel tov!

  2. janie says:

    Congrats to both!! I’m so happy for her, she’s one of my favorites!!

  3. Anna says:

    The whole thing is delightfully non-attention-wh0rey. Good for her.

    • Tapioca says:

      I know! I half expected her to get married in Times Square to show the world she that she finally got her man.

      An Autumn is a sensible name, well done!

    • Devon says:

      Totally. I definitely expected her to be to over share and throw her pregnancy down our throats but shes been fairly quiet and private. I quite like the name and hmthought she’d have a girl. Congrats to Jennifer and her husband.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I’m so happy for her…always liked her because she’s my age and was on Party of Five..ha!

      Anyway, she got Brian who’s really cute and she got her baby. After losing her mom and all her shows getting cancelled, she really was due for some good luck.

      • Liv says:

        I loved Party of Five back then! πŸ˜‰

        I never got the hate for her. She’s a bit fame-whorey, but then again most people in Hollywood are…

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        I’m currently pregnant with a little girl and my husband suggested Autumn. I quickly shot it down because it screamed stripper. The name goes appropriately with her birth season, but it’s pretty horrible.

      • Meggie says:

        @morticians-Autumn is a great name. It doesn’t say stripper to me, now Sparkle, Trixie and Starr do. Autumn seems hippie/earthy to me but still normal.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        It’s not as bad as my cousin’s ex girlfriend’s name—GOLDIE. Nope, not her nickname, her name. She said it’s a family name…uh, no. It screams stripper to me.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @meggie, his other suggestions were summer and amber rose. I quickly pointed him to Kanye’s ex’s photo and told him his names sounded like cheap strippers lol

        @virginia, Goldie was the name of the prostitute played by Jamie King in Sin City! Lol

    congrats to them

  7. Maria says:

    I like it.

    She’s always been so cheerful and deserves to be happy!

  8. Erinn says:

    So sweet. She just seems so genuinely happy. I like him too, so it’s nice to see them both happy together.

    Love the name Autumn.

  9. Lilalis says:

    I am honestly surprised that she had a private wedding, I would have expected her to go for a months-long engagement/wedding-planner tabloid hustle. Good for her, and congrats on the birth of her little girl!

    • Jenna says:

      She’s just like Kim Kardashian. Kelly Clarkson got married and having a baby and everyone forgot JLH was pregnant and engaged or even alive so she’s waiting and sitting on her fat ass then she’ll sell her wedding pics to a pathetic magazine.

      • Melissa says:

        I don’t think it’s okay to call any woman fat or having a fat-ass in this instance especially if she was pregnant.

  10. Evie says:

    Congrats to them both!! I wish them all the best!!

  11. fofes says:

    Congrats to them. I’m still po’d about what they did to client list, though. Should have at least wrapped up all the stories lines that season. πŸ™

  12. Amanda_M87 says:

    I thought she once said in an interview that they were going to wait until after the baby was born before getting married. I guess they must have changed their minds. Congrats.

  13. Joxer says:

    But was she vajazzled for the delivery???

  14. Jayna says:

    Sweet girl. I’m happy for her. She’ll be a great mother. It’s bittersweet though, that her mom isn’t alive for Jennifer to share this with. She was so close to her mom.

  15. Kiddo says:

    She seems sweet, but I’m biased, because she looks like a cousin of mine who is very nice.

  16. Zigggy says:

    Cute! I even like the name πŸ™‚

  17. ali says:

    She could have pulled a Jennifer Lawrence and flipped the middle finger.

  18. Jojo says:

    Autumn is such a lovely name. Congrats JLove.

  19. Madpoe says:

    Cute baby girl name! I’ve always liked the name Autumn, feels a bit country too.

  20. Shannon1972 says:

    Awwww…she got her happy ending! Good for her! And I love the name Autumn. Finally a celebrity that didn’t name their baby something completely ridiculous. All the best to the new family. πŸ™‚

  21. Tania says:

    Congrats to her! How wonderful! On a side note, something looks off with her teeth I the first photo. Did she have caps removed or something?

  22. Renee says:

    Very happy for her. Love the fact that she kept her wedding private. Unlike so many other Hollywoodies. Classy.

  23. Elise says:

    Mazel tov. Nice name, Autumn born in autumn.

  24. Dawn says:

    Congrats to them! I love the whole getting married without any “press” about it. Good for them and their brand new daughter. I hope they enjoy their first holidays as new parents. They are a cute couple and I bet that baby girl is going to be gorgeous!

  25. Penelope says:

    I like her & love the name Autumn. Daddy’s pretty cute, too. πŸ™‚

  26. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    This is so cute! I’m glad she finally got what she wanted…I did think she was a little (a lot) clingy, and moved way too fast in some of her relationships–I’m glad she’s got her baby and husband.

  27. Audrey says:

    Congrats to her. I’vealways liked her.

    Name is hideous imo though. I hate names like autumn and summer and june and crap. Idk why

  28. Ashley says:

    Props to her, her husband is hot

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      Yes, she thankfully traded up from that fug, complete douche that she was last with (that guy from Scream, can’t remember his name).

  29. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Aww, lovely. Congrats to the new family. No doubt the baby will be a cutie.

  30. RHONYC says:

    congratz to them. i really dug her preggers style. fun & easy. πŸ˜‰

  31. Caroline says:

    So much positivism.
    Guess no one wants to mention how she lost her show due to him? So now they’ve got a kid and no income. Great.
