Jennifer Love Hewitt Pregnant: Actress Expecting Baby With Boyfriend Brian Hallisay

Jennifer Love Hewitt is pregnant! The "Client List" actress and her boyfriend, Brian Hallisay, are expecting a baby.

Hewitt confirmed the pregnancy in a statement to Us Weekly on Tuesday. "We're so thrilled and happy to start a family," she said, adding that she is about three months along.

The 34-year-old actress and her co-star beau have been dating since last year. The two originally met while filming the failed NBC sitcom "Love Bites," then reunited on the set of their Lifetime series, on which they play husband and wife. At the time, sources said she was "in love" and ready to settle down.

Last month, Radar Online reported that Hewitt had been planning for a baby with Hallisay even though the two have no plans for marriage yet.

“Jennifer’s going to take an unusual route this time around,” a source told Radar. “She loves Brian to death and thinks he’s Mr. Right, but she’s being very cautious about what she says publicly."

“She and Brian currently live in her condo together, but they’re seriously looking to buy a house within the next few months and they’ve decided to start a family after that. Jennifer and Brian are on the same page -– baby first then a big wedding.”

Back in 2010, the brunette beauty already had babies on the brain. "I would love to have babies," she told The Huffington Post. "I'm obsessed with babies. My brother's getting ready to have his first baby, and I'm so excited because I can secretly pretend to have babies."

This is the first child for both Hewitt and Hallisay.
