Jennifer Love Hewitt Found Love While Filming. 10 Years Later, They’re Still Together, Raising 3 Children
Despite being famous worldwide, Jennifer Love Hewitt always wanted to simply have a family and children. She met the man of her dreams at work. Actor Brian Hallisay was able to make his beloved woman happy. They have been inseparable for over 10 years. They are raising three children, and sometimes they star together in projects.
Jennifer became a screen star at quite a young age. In a 2010 interview, she said she had always wanted a family and children. But she didn’t have to wait long. Soon, she met her future husband — Brian Hallisay. Prior to his acting career, he worked as an investment banker on Wall Street. But he decided to pursue his long-standing dream and try acting. They met while working on the TV series Love Bites. But they realized they were meant for each other during the making of the TV series The Client List in 2012.
In the same year, the actress went through some difficult times when her mother passed away. But Jennifer was not alone in this tragedy; Brian supported her in every way. Close friends of the couple said that the depth and seriousness of their feelings were evident. By June 2013, the couple confirmed that they were engaged and expecting their first child.
They got married the same year, 5 days before having a child. This is why the actress wore the only dress that fit her. The ceremony was simple, and the loving couple didn’t need anything more. Soon, their daughter Autumn James was born.
In 2 years, Jennifer gave birth to a brother for Autumn, whom they named Atticus. According to Jennifer, before the children were born, love was just a beautiful word for her, something that is shown in movies and on TV and something she sometimes felt for her husband. But it was the children who revealed the true power of love to the actress. Furthermore, even in her work, she became more sincere and authentic.
It wasn’t easy for Jennifer to find balance between family and career, but she tried very hard. It’s important for her to set a good example for her children. And the kids are thrilled with their mom’s work. On set, Jen misses the little ones a lot, so she sometimes takes them with her. The actress enjoys watching the children and remembers the importance of spending time together.
In 2018-2019, Jennifer found herself on the same set with Brian again. The actress played Maddie, the heroine of the TV series 9-1-1 while Halsey played Maddie’s despotic ex-husband. Their on-screen story was full of cruelty and drama, but in reality, Brian was the complete opposite of his character.
Jennifer shared a significant episode from her family life. Once, they were sitting together in front of the TV and there was an advertisement for pregnancy tests. Atticus then said they should buy one just in case there was a baby in mommy’s tummy. Jen laughed and said it was pretty crude, especially since she had just finished a big dinner. However, this conversation turned out to be prophetic.
In 2021, the star shared wonderful news with her fans — she and her husband were expecting their third child. They had thought about it before, but didn’t expect it to happen during such challenging times. However, they were already raising 2 very special children and were thrilled to be adding another little one to their family. In September 2021, little Aiden was born.
The couple has been together for over 10 years, and it seems like their love is only getting stronger. They enjoy spending time with their children and celebrating anniversaries with romantic dates. Jennifer and Brian are endlessly grateful to each other for their family.
