Jennifer Love Hewitt knows the secret to a successful labor: keeping her husband happy!

During a Monday night appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the new mom joked that she had a great support system when she delivered her daughter Autumn James — all thanks to her stash of snacks.

“This is the thing, too, if you are in labor, feed your husband and they are wonderful. He can’t be hungry — you need them!” the Criminal Minds star, 35, explains.

But there was a silver lining to taking care of Brian Hallisay.

“If he passed out or something bad happened out of being hangry, then I don’t get what I need, which is my rock,” she says. “I had pudding for him and snack bars … it was great!”

With a new baby and a new husband, it was a busy winter for Jennifer Love Hewitt. But the mom of now 4-month-old Autumn James couldn’t be happier about her new roles.

“Those first couple of nights, it was wild,” the actress, 35, told PEOPLE at the launch of her maternity line for A Pea in the Pod on Tuesday in Beverly Hills.

“When they let us bring her home I said to [husband, actor Brian Hallisay], ‘To get your license you have to take a test. They check to make sure you’re a good human being to get behind the wheel of a car. They’ve given us no test! We just had a baby and now we’re going home.’ He was like, ‘I know, it’s terrifying!'”

Thankfully, Dad is up for the challenge. “He’s fantastic. He’s great at diaper changing and at the football hold, which she loves,” says Hewitt.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Feels Lucky with Her Dancing Baby and ‘Awesome’ Husband

04/01/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Jennifer Love Hewitt has a baby — and a husband — with all the right moves.

At just 4 months old, baby daughter Autumn James already has quite the appreciation for music, and is learning to groove along with it.

“She loves Pharrell and Drake. She’s big into hip-hop and Latin music for some reason,” the actress says in an interview airing Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show — a program that Autumn also seems drawn to.

“The second the show comes on and you start dancing, she does this weird kick thing with her leg, and she gets her little chair,” Hewitt, 35, tells DeGeneres. “I think she’s gonna be a dancer. I really do. She loves it.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt is one happy mom-to-be!

“I’m loving [being pregnant]! It’s really been a joy,” she told PEOPLE at Susan’s Magic Makers benefiting Camp Kesem in Santa Monica, Calif., on Saturday. “I have no complaints. I mean, tired feet and all the stuff you hear about, but nobody needs to hear about that.”

Hewitt — whose engagement to her Client List costar Brian Hallisay was confirmed by PEOPLE on June 5, the day after her pregnancy was announced — attended the event in support of children affected by a parent’s cancer.

“I lost my mom a little less than a year and a half ago to cancer. Obviously, I got very lucky that even though I lost my mother, I lost her later in life, but it’s still had a profound effect on me,” the actress, 34, tells PEOPLE.

Jennifer Love Hewitt: Pregnancy Is ‘Crazy but Beautiful’

Jennifer Love Hewitt Pregnancy Crazy

Jennifer Love Hewitt definitely has that pregnancy glow — and she’s loving it!

“[Being pregnant] is an awesome thing,” the actress told PEOPLE at Pampers‘ Love, Sleep and Play campaign in New York on Wednesday. “It definitely has its moments where you’re like, ‘Oh my gosh this is crazy,’ but it’s been beautiful.”

One reason Hewitt, 34, continues to look fabulous while pregnant – despite her cupcake cravings – is because she’s upped her exercise routine.

“I’ve actually worked out more pregnant than when I wasn’t. I’ve been working out about five to six days a week,” she explains. “I do a lot of swimming, Pilates, yoga — all good stuff for baby and for me. It gets difficult the bigger you get because it’s more uncomfortable, but it’s important.”
