JENNIFER Love Hewitt, 42, is pregnant and expecting baby number three with husband Brian Hallisay.
The couple shares Atticus James, 5, and daughter Autumn James, 7.
Jennifer revealed the wonderful news on Tuesday, claiming that the pregnancy was a total surprise.
She wrote on her Instagram as she shared a picture of her positive pregnancy test: "Oh baby!
"We have another one on the way. So excited to finally share this news with all of you.
"Thank you @clearblue for being part of our journey and giving us a platform to share this news!"
Jennifer also spoke to PEOPLE about the surprising news and said: "We had always been open to a third, but definitely didn't think in the crazy year that the entire world was having that it would necessarily be this moment," she told the outlet.
"I feel like we've been able to so far raise two really special kids who will be great role models.
"This has been such a pleasant, beautiful, surprising gift in this time to be able to get to do all that again with another little human."
And as to how she found out she was pregnant, she revealed it was her five-year-old son who insisted she buy a pregnancy test.
"One night, my kids and I were laying in bed watching TV and a Clearblue commercial came on television.
"My son out of nowhere was like, 'Hey Mommy, you should order one of those in case there's a baby in your belly,' " she remembered.
"I was like, 'How rude! I just ate a big dinner. What is he talking about?' It stuck with me, and they've been asking off and on for a year or so for a sibling.
"We weren't closed off to the idea, it just wasn't something that we were actively thinking about."
And Atticus wasn't wrong, his mom was definitely pregnant.
She continued: "I was like, 'Wow, this is really interesting that he put it out there in the universe and there it was.' I had used Clear Blue tests before, and it was just really funny that he saw that commercial and said that out loud."
She added that her two kids are very "excited."
Despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Jennifer hopes she can get her husband in the delivery room as "he's like a rock, solid."
She said of Brian, 42: "You would never know if he was panicked, or worried or stressed or anything – he's just really good.
"The only thing about him and labor that really makes me laugh is that he eats a lot of snacks. Usually in my hospital bag it is like an outfit for me and outfit for the baby, and then snacks for Brian!"
But after baby number three, Jennifer and Brian are done having kids.
"I don't think I could do another one. I think five is a great number," she said.
Brian and Jennifer met on the set of Love Bites in 2011.
They reconnected in 2012 when they played exes on The Client List and after dating for a year, the two got married in a private ceremony in 2013.
