Jennifer Love Hewitt is getting a lot more love in her life -- the actress is expecting her first child with actor and costar Brian Hallisay.
Hewitt and Hallisay, both 34, star in Lifetime's provocative call girl drama "The Client List."
"We're so thrilled and happy to start a family," the actors told Us Weekly in a statement.
"This is a wonderful time and we are looking forward to starting our family together," her publicist added in a statement obtained by the Associated Press.
Though there's no official word on a due date yet, a source tells Us Weekly that Hewitt is about three months along.
Hallisay, who plays the husband of Hewitt's character in the series, was originally a recurring character on the show but later became a series regular. The pair first met when they appeared together on NBC's short-lived comedy "Love Bites," but didn't begin dating until early 2012, E! reported.
Hewitt was previously engaged to actor Ross McCall, but they ended their relationship in 2008. Then in 2009 to 2010, she dated Jamie Kennedy, who costarred with her in "Ghost Whisperer."
In 2010, Hewitt told the mag that "she would love to to have babies ... one day," because she's "obsessed with babies!"
