I know this is “old news” (as in, more than 24 hours old) now, but I was debating whether or not to even report it because, you know, it’s Jennifer Love Hewitt. Still, homegirl’s been chasing this dream so long, I figured it’s the least I could do for her. She’s having a baby! And she’s engaged now! And those things are totally coincidental and totally bode well!
The lucky bro is Brian Hallisay, her co-star on The Client List. They began dating about 15 months ago.
Here’s the pregnancy announcement from US Weekly:
Jennifer Love Hewitt is pregnant and expecting her first child with actor Brian Hallisay, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm. “We’re so thrilled and happy to start a family,” the Client List costars tell Us in a statement. A source says Hewitt is about three months along.
Who wants to venture a guess that this baby was definitely unexpected? Also the engagement announcement that came a few hours later, this time from People (way to spread out your official announcements, guys):
A day after announcing that she is pregnant with her first child, Jennifer Love Hewitt continues her happiness streak with the news that there’s even more love in her life.
Hewitt and the father of her child-to-be, Brian Hallisay, both 34, are engaged to marry, PEOPLE has confirmed.
“Yes,” said her rep, “they are engaged.”
Dear God, that’s dire. I know it’s from a rep so they have to be professional and all, but you would think a little more enthusiasm could be mustered. You mark my words I’ll be writing a split report in… hmm, I’m feeling generous, so I’ll give it 18 months max. (Obviously, for JLove’s sake, I hope I’m wrong.)
