Jennifer Love Hewitt welcomed her first child with Brian Hallisay on Tuesday, Nov. 26, her rep confirms exclusively to reporters, adding that the actress and the father of her child married in a secret ceremony.

“Jennifer Love Hewitt and her husband Brian Hallisay are thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter,” a rep for Hewitt told Us Weekly, revealing that the little girl is named Autumn James Hallisay. No further details were said of the couple’s clandestine nuptials.

Back in June Love Hewitt made headlines after some reports emerged claiming that the star was pregnant and got engaged with her boyfriend.

The couple, who costarred in NBC’s short-lived series Love Bites, began dating after reconnecting on the set of their hit Lifetime show. Hallisay proposed in late May, while the two were vacationing in Europe.

Both her first pregnancy and the engagement are a dream come true for Руцшее, who previously has been quite clear when speaking about her belief in fairy-tale romances.

“I think that I could be a really good wife,” the actress said in 2010. “I know that I love being able to give my love out to someone. I know there is somebody great out there for me.”

In July, Hewitt told the media that she and Hallisay were deciding to keep the gender of their first child a surprise. “You sort of have these pictures in your mind of what [the baby’s going to look like],” she said. “I’m really excited to see what he or she is going to look like!”

The actress was trying to remain stress-free throughout her pregnancy.

“I think most people, when they’re getting ready to be a mom, they go, ‘Oh my gosh, I have to have all of the answers right now,’ but every kid is different, every parent is different and every child and parent relationship is different, so you just sort of have to wait until you’re in it and do the best that you can to try to be Zen in the middle of it all,” she explained.

The following month, the Hollywood star revealed to reporters that she was feeling good going into the final months of her pregnancy.

“Sometimes it’s been tough to adjust to weird little things,” she said, “like your hips go numb at night so you have to keep switching sides, and I started making old lady noises as I walk down the stairs. You know, things like that,” she explained, laughing.

“I feel very lucky. Some women have really rough pregnancies. I’ve not had one,” she shared. “It’s been really nice and we have been enjoying it so we feel really lucky.”

“I’m off work for the moment, for the summer,” she said of getting some rest during her pregnancy. “It’s a really happy, positive time, which I’m grateful for.”
