The love just keeps on growing!

Jennifer Love Hewitt is set to welcome another baby with Brian Hallisay later this year, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The Criminal Minds actress and her husband “are thrilled to be expecting their second child,” her rep says.

The couple, who are already parents to 13-month-old daughter Autumn James, secretly wed five days before welcoming their baby girl in November 2013.

Although Hewitt, 35, told PEOPLE in April that parenthood was initially “terrifying,” she credited her former Client List costar, Hallisay, 36, with being the strong support system she needed in the delivery room.

“He should be a male doula. I was really worried that I was going to get that face — ‘Mmm, what’s happening here?’ — and I’m not good at the faces so I would’ve been like, ‘What does that mean? What does that mean!’ ” she joked during a September appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“But he was just like, ‘This is great. I am so proud of you right now. This is awesome, you look beautiful.’ I was really proud of him.”

Wait, she had her first baby already?

Shawna on

Obviously she had her baby if they are saying it’s her 2nd baby… And that is an old picture from last spring, her hair doesn’t look like that anymore.

Gabrielle on

Woah, I didn’t see that one coming!

Tara on

she must have realized it’s easier to have a 2nd baby than lose the weight from the 1st

Love this news!!!

Krissy on

She is beautiful and I adore her!

sandee on

not good not good….married JUST over a year (14 months) and baby barely over a year….and now she will NEVER lose that weight, but will instead put on more!? And that hair, yes! eeeek!!! the hair she has on her television show is soooo unflattering and weird

I knew it! Watch the last episode of Criminal Minds. That stomach was strategically covered. For those of you making nasty comments about her appearance – take a long, long look at yourself in your mirror. If you don’t have anything nice to say…

Wow, Sandee. You sure are a grade A b!tch. My condolences to your family and friends (if you have any).

Shawna on

Wow, so many of you people are incredibly ignorant. She is not fat! Just because magazines say women should be a size 2 doesn’t make it so. Also she is probably about 3-4 months along if she is announcing now which will put the babies around 18-19 months apart. Many, many people have children that far apart, including myself. You must be a very miserable person to spew such hateful things at someone you don’t even know.

Good for her! Congrats! It’s her baby time in her life.

Aww, congrats to them!

Oh wow, I guess she is in a happy spot right now in her life.

Who are the 6 people who are sad or angry about this article?? Even if JLH isn’t your favorite person/actress, why are you bothered by this? WTH…

PS on

Obviously most of you are not watching Criminal Minds in which Jennifer is a costar. She is thin again after her first baby and looking great. If I could pop them out quickly and look that good after, I’d do it too. Congratulations to Jennifer, hubby and big sis!

oops!

Congratulations to Jennifer, Brian and Autumn on the new addition to their happy family. And to all commenting that she is fat, ugly and can’t act and delete her I have a question: if you hate her sooooooo much what on earth are you reading the article for? If you don’t have anything nice to say keep your opinions to yourself. Hiding behind a computer and a screen name to make rude jabs is incredibly juvenile and disrespectful. Not only to the person about whom you are making the comments but also to those who actually like the articles subject celeb.

Just my two cents but I sure see a lot of this on the web lately. People like to get on and use comment sections to bash celebs. If you hate them then quit reading about them. Simple enough I think!!

Wow, Jenny. Not sure who is the “b!tch” here. The person who simply spoke her mind or the person who decided to use such an ugly word…and lamely censored the word at that. My condolences as well.

Love her, she is a good actress. Congrats.
