Jennifer Love Hewitt Welcomes Baby Girl With a Perfect Fall-Inspired Name

Awww! 28

What’s better than a new baby? Not much -- but maybe the romance of a secret wedding could contend. Want both? Then this is the story for you.

Jennifer Love Hewitt gave birth to a baby girl on Tuesday, her rep confirmed. Another source said that she also recently married her fiancé and baby daddy Brian Hallisay “in private.”

"Jennifer Love Hewitt and her husband Brian Hallisay are thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter," the rep said. "Autumn James Hallisay was born on November 26."

Squee! What is not to love about this story? And how cute is the name Autumn James for a little girl born in November? Seasonal/month names can be kind of froo-frooey, but I like that James sort of grounds it. Perfect.

The 34-year-old actress revealed in June that she was not only expecting, but also engaged to her 35-year-old Client List costar. They said they were “thrilled and happy to start a family.”

They also decided to wait for the birth for the big gender reveal, which is very cool in our need-to-know-everything-now culture. As for the pregnancy itself, Hewitt said she was very lucky that she had an easy and stress-free pregnancy.

This summer she said, “Some women have really rough pregnancies. I've not had one … it's been really nice and we have been enjoying it so we feel really lucky."

Aww, yay for the newlywed new parents! Welcome to the world, Autumn James.

Do you like the name Autumn James?

You Stir people kill me with that squee word, and not in the good way. I do like the name James for a girl! I was upset when James King went back to using Jamie after stopped modeling and became an actress. Happy for the couple.

WTF is a squee? A squeal gone awry? Professional much?

Nice name. It's pronounce-able to most of us, and doesn't contain a cardinal direction or two.

She,s always been one of my favorites! I'm happy for them! The name is cute, but I'd have to call her AJ!
