Did you remember that Jennifer Love Hewitt, 36, is pregnant with her second child? I did not until I saw recent paparazzi photos of her last week, below. Other than that Hewitt has laid surprisingly low, especially since she had her daughter, Autumn James, in late 2013. I haven’t seen one photo of the baby (apart from stroller pics where you can’t see her face) and Hewitt hasn’t posted any photos to social media of Autumn that I can find. (If I’m wrong please let me know.) I would have never pinned Hewitt for the private type, but she hasn’t revealed her baby’s face and she hasn’t made a public point of shielding her child’s identity either. We similarly didn’t see any photos of her wedding with Brian Hallisay, and we didn’t hear that she was married until after the fact.
Hewitt covers the upcoming American Baby magazine. Doesn’t she look just like Kelly Preston on the cover? They have a video interview with Hewitt, which reminds me of the reasons I like her. Hewitt is always so friendly and perky, and she’s wanted a husband and babies forever, so it’s nice to see it happening for her. She’s super enthusiastic about it too. Here’s some of what she told American Baby, and you can see the interview on Parents.com.
She likes being pregnant
I kind of feel my best when I’m pregnant, which means I should probably have 18 children. It won’t happen. But I do feel good.
On being pregnant again
I think I feel really grateful. I know how hard it is for lots of women to even get pregnant in the first place, some people never get to have kids, so I just feel really lucky that my husband and I have been able to do this… now twice… so I do feel happy.
On her pregnancy cravings and diet
Pickles for me this time have actually been a thing and they’ve been making fun of me at work… Italian food, which I kind of like anyway. You know, cake, hotdogs, you name it really.
On if her daughter knows she’s pregnant
I don’t know what she thinks of the belly. I’m not sure if she just thinks I’m fat… or if she knows that there’s something in there, but she’s very sweet. Every morning and night she’ll sort of rub my belly and she likes to kiss the belly.
Again, she really likes being pregnant
Just the feeling of it, I mean, it’s really cool… As somebody who’s been in this business for a long time and had to sort of be all about… what’s your figure look like, your regimen… I think if you can just sorta let that stuff go and really embrace what you’re doing, you feel kind of awesome.
I’ll have to see what the print interview is like but in the the video she didn’t say anything highly quotable. It’s nice hear how grateful she is to be pregnant, and to see how happy she is. Hewitt waited a long time to find the right guy, and she had a lot of high profile attempts. She knows she’s lucky and she’ll tell you about it without pimping out her kid.
Oh and in terms of the editorial, it’s cheesy but it kind of shows her personality perfectly. She’s sunny and enthusiastic. I could do without the belly baring pic though. You can see more photos here.
