Bust out the blue balloons— it's a boy for actress Jennifer Love Hewitt! The former Criminal Minds star and her husband, Brian Hallisay, welcomed baby Atticus James into the world on Wednesday. This is the couple's second child; they also have an 18-month-old girl, Autumn James.
Being pregnant while also keeping up with a toddler would exhaust even the toughest mom, but JLH reportedly took these past nine months in stride. In April, she told American Baby, "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."
Of course, it also helped that she was able to let herself enjoy all of the wild physical and emotional changes that come with pregnancy. "I think if you can just sort of let [weight gain] go and really embrace what you're doing, you feel kind of awesome," she said. "Like, if somebody asked me right now if I thought I was pretty great, I would be like, 'Yeah, I'm probably pretty great. I'm doing a pretty cool thing here and I'm psyched about it.'"
Yup, we couldn't have said it better ourselves. Congratulations on your little boy, JLH!
