The couple confirmed the exciting news with Us Weekly, telling the publication, “We’re so thrilled and happy to start a family.” A source close to the couple tells the magazine that Hewitt is three months along in her pregnancy.
Hewitt and Hallisay have been dating for a little over a year after reconnecting on the set of their steamy Lifetime show. (The two previously appeared on blink-and-you-missed-it NBC series “Live Bites.”) The actress was previously engaged to Scottish actor Ross McCall before calling it quits in late 2008 and dating “Ghost Whisperer” co-star Jamie Kennedy from 2009 to 2010.
Hewitt has been vocal about her desire to have children, telling Us back in 2010, “I would love to have babies. I’m obsessed with babies. I would love to have them one day.” Back in March 2013, a source revealed to the magazine that the actress was considering freezing her eggs, should her relationship with Hallisay not pan out. It looks as if that’s no longer necessary.
Congrats to the happy couple.
