Jennifer Love Hewitt confirms pregnancy & engagement, scores US Weekly cover


On Monday night, someone sent us a one-line email that read, in total, “jennifer love hewitt is pregnant and engaged to costar boyfriend.” That was before the news broke on Celebslam, and that person had send us other random tips on Hewitt, claiming that she had a source on the set of Hewitt’s TV show, “The Client List.” I should have followed up on it, I know, and now I’m seeing the news all over. So maybe that means that the other tips this person sent me were true, that Hewitt had made sure that her boyfriend, Brian Hallisay, had a larger role on the show than producers intended and that there were hard feelings among the cast members. This tipster also claimed that Hallisay was living with Hewitt, in a new home she purchased, and was a “kept man.”

Hewitt has since confirmed that she’s pregnant and engaged, and she’s on the cover of US Weekly for it! It’s been a long time since she’s been on the cover of a weekly entertainment magazine, I think over four years, so this is big score for her. Here’s US’ story:

Everything’s coming up roses for Jennifer Love Hewitt. The Client List actress, 34, is not only pregnant with her first child but also engaged to marry boyfriend Brian Hallisay, Us Weekly confirms exclusively in the new issue.

The actors, who previously appeared together on NBC’s short-lived series Love Bites, started dating 15 months ago after reconnecting on the set of their hit Lifetime show. Hallisay proposed in late May, while the two were vacationing in Europe.

Adding to the couple’s bliss is the news that they’re expecting their first child. As Us Weekly reported exclusively on Tuesday, June 4, Hewitt is around three months pregnant. “We’re so thrilled and happy to start a family,” the costars told Us in a statement.

Both the pregnancy and the engagement are a dream come true for the first-time mom-to-be, who has been vocal in the past about her belief in fairy-tale romances. “I think that I could be a really good wife,” the actress (whose exes include Jamie Kennedy and former fiance Ross McCall) said in 2010. “I know that I love being able to give my love out to someone. I know there is somebody great out there for me.”

[From US Weekly]

It seems like this was a whirlwind romance for her, but they’ve been together about a year. Jennifer has been talking about finding the right guy, and planning her wedding, for years now, so she probably feels ready. She also has been very open about wanting kids, and just said in March that she would freeze her eggs if it didn’t happen for her soon. That must have been right around the time she got pregnant. Congratulations to Jennifer and Brian! Ooh this makes me wonder when she’s going to do a photo op to show off the ring. You know that’s coming. It will be one of the three she has picked out already.

    Lucky b*tch ;)

    • marie says:

      no kidding.. good for them though

    • Erinn says:

      I still don’t understand how he looks so different. I think I’d be happier for her if I was looking at hotter pictures of him haha, right now I’m feeling like she’s responsible for his current look.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        He looks AWFUL in these pics. I do NOT like him all prepped-up like this.

        I might blame her too, Erinn. We’ll see if this continues to be a trend…

  4. don't kill me i'm french says:

    congrats!

  5. Samigirl says:

    I like JLH, but ffs, she has a terrible habit of falling for her co-workers, doesn’t she? I hope this works out for her, and I hope she’s happy. Wishing her the best.

    • Little Darling says:

      She has a habit of falling…whoever is closest in proximity.

      I’m happy for her though. She’s about due for some good things.

      • Charlotte says:

        I think she is very needsy and needs to be with ‘her love’ as close to 24/7 as possible. Costars fit the bill, and are easier to keep an eye on.
        That acknowledged, I do like her and wish her well

  6. A says:

    Seems like her dreams are coming true. Good for her.

  7. yeahright says:

    Get ready to be called fat repeatedly and educated about fashion by women who think its acceptable to wear jogging pants all day and sloppy top knots. Oh wait that already happened.

    • MissKittyKay says:

      They are called YOGA pants and I have been rocking a sock bun instead of a messy knot

      • embertine says:

        SO NEEERRRRRRR. Actually, they are leggings and a kind-of-chignon, and how DARE you anyway because I totally had a shower this morning and everything.

        ;)

    • eliza says:

      Basketball shorts, a wife beater and ponytail thankyouverymuch! :-)

    • yeahright says:

      Sorry I meant lululemons and chignons! Haha. :)

    • PrettyTarheelFan says:

      I have on a suit, dress shirt, heels, and full hair and makeup in one of the hottest parts of my territory (AL). I hate all of you!

  8. Shelley says:

    She’s beautiful and harmless. Wish her all the best.
    Is the father her on-screen husband? Can’t tell with his shades on

    • emmie_a says:

      Shelley — Yes, he’s her on-screen husband. They make such an attractive couple! When I heard the news yesterday I was truly excited for her – I really like her and wish her the best!

    • Just Me says:

      Word! She’s got an hour glass, (I do, too), so her pregnancy is really going to show. Same as KK. Unfortunately for us hour glasses, when we lose the waist to pregnancy, ppl like to jump on calling us fat.

      • EG says:

        Yes–I too have this body type and waved goodbye to my cute hourglass figure a couple of months ago. Luckily, I was super excited and happy to become a mom, so I embrace my new “all-over” roundness and I’m sure JLove will too!

      • Just Me says:

        EG – Congratulations on the impending birth! The hourglass will come back, I promise. We just have to work a little bit harder at it. Hang in there! It’s only a blip on the radar. :)

        Also – sorry, I was out taking care of things & made this comment on my phone. It was meant to reply to Comment #7.

  9. serena says:

    I’m really happy for her, she wanted this for a long time.

    • Lucy says:

      I really hope he’s a good guy and she didn’t just jump at the chance to get pregnant and marry the first guy who said “sure”, I hope it really works out for them because she has wanted this for a long time

  10. QQ says:

    Haha like i said yesterday: maybe your source’s name unbeknowst to you is “Janice Lorne Heuwitz” or something with those initials, either way LETS REJOICE, HER THIRST IS QUENCHED ( or the national love nightmare is over, either or)

  11. brin says:

    LMAO!! That was the first thing I thought of…she already bought the ring(s)…this guy has it made!

  12. TG says:

    I rarely read the crazy surrounding JLH so I like her and think she has a fantastic body but if the rumors are try about her getting her man more time on the show that sounds bad and low. What is with women dating down? I don’t mean economically necessarily I mean why are these women dating and marrying and having babies with men they will have to fully support and prop up their ego for them for the next 21 years? There is JLo, Jessica Simpson, Kste Winslet, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Love Hewitt and I could go on all day.

    • Deandra says:

      Maybe they’re more into the type of person they are than caring about their finances?

      If celeb women date someone richer or more famous than them, they are fame whore gold diggers, if they date someone “normal” or not rich, then they are desperate women with “kept” men. They can’t win!

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      The dude works ya know? He’s an actor, he makes a paycheck. I don’t think it’s fair to lump him in with some of the freeloaders you mentioned.

      But yeah, as long as they love each other, it’s the woman’s choice whether they’re comfortable with financially supporting him or not. I’d do it if the guy would stay home and take care of the kids. I’d be fine with that….

  13. dahlianoir says:

    So she basically bought herself a husband :p

  14. Ladybug says:

    Bless her. She’s got what she wanted. Good for her. Is it terrible if I add a hearty “let’s hope it lasts…” ?

  15. Quinn says:

    That hole in the condom FINALLY worked! YEEHAW!!! :0)

  16. lucy2 says:

    Congrats on the baby, I think she’ll be a good mom.
    As for the relationship, hope this one works out for her. Seems like she’s always dating and getting engaged to costars, hope he’s the one since they’re now having a kid.

  17. lady_luck says:

    This mind sound pathetic, but I HAVE TEARS. lol Jennifer was always that woman, whom thanks to her needy, clueless ways with men and Bridget Jones style approach to life, was one I thought as life-long on the shelf. Wow – her dream is finally arrived, at 34, it’s come true. So happy for her.

  18. Deandra says:

    I KNEW she’d be all about announcing it to the tabloids. She loves that stuff. Remember when she used to pose in the middle of the street with Us Weekly or whatever mag so they’d take a pic and publish it?

    But she seems harmless so I wish her well.

  19. Andrea says:

    I really hope this works out. She’s kind of unlucky in love isn’t she?

    • Tapioca says:

      It’s not really considered “unlucky” if you drive every man away with insufferable neediness and desperation and never frickin’ learn! ;)

      Congrats to her anyway, famous Eskimo actor Jennifer Love Hewitt…

  20. Gossip Garl says:

    Gwen Stafani is preggers to, they say

  21. Val says:

    I am happy for her, I remember her mother died recently. Wish them all the best.

  22. sarah says:

    I have such a soft spot for her. I’m glad she’s finally getting her family!

  23. Anna says:

    Not to be a snarky bitch, but isnt this her 15th engagement at this point?

  24. minime says:

    I like Brian Hallisay since his times in “Privileged”!! He also seems like a nice guy, so all in all, cute couple :)

  25. Nerd Alert says:

    He’s hot! That’s all I know about him, except he looks like my first boyfriend all grown up.

    Good for her. I know this is pretty much all she ever wanted.

  26. Mirella says:

    Good for her! I wish them all the best :)

  27. kibbles says:

    I’m happy that she is pregnant so at least she is getting a baby, which is important for a woman her age who seems to have desperately wanted one for a long time. Not quite as optimistic about the shelf life of this relationship though. A baby isn’t going to make him “the one”. Maybe she will finally get to walk down the aisle and he will stick around longer for the sake of the child, but I sense this is going to end up like one of Kate Winslet’s marriages.

  28. littlestar says:

    Congrats to them! I’ve always liked JLH, she has such a beautiful face and body and seems qenuinely nice. Hopefully she doesn’t scare this guy away with her neediness :( .

  29. Holden says:

    Good for her, don’t get to attached to that show though, it is beyond terrible.

  30. Audrey says:

    Oh god. Her boobs.

  31. Barrett says:

    I never believe this oops surprise pregnancy once a women gets into her 30′s. especially since she discussed recently freezing her eggs. She knew what she was going for and what she was doing during the months they were getting busy if she is not on birth control. Might the guy be clueless or think that it is a surprise pregnancy sure she can sell that to him. If your researching freezing eggs you are most likely very in tune with timing to up odds of pregnancy.
    I wish her best with the guy. Regardless, this baby will give her something she is missing in her life. She did seem very close to her mom. It was touching.

  32. Maria says:

    Good for her, and she should be congratulated for not stealing someones boyfriend or husband. Good for her to express her vulnerable points. All the best to her.
