It’s a girl!

Jennifer Love Hewitt, star of The Client List, gave birth to her first child yesterday, a daughter named Autumn James—and that’s not the only exciting news for the brand new mom!

Jen, 34, also secretly tied the knot to the baby’s daddy, Brian Hallisay, 35, her fiancé of five months and Client List costar. In June, the pair got engaged while vacationing in Europe shortly after it was announced she was expecting a baby.

This is the first baby for both Jen and Brian, though it’s been a longtime coming for the actress. In 2010, she said she was “obsessed with babies” and couldn’t wait to have one of her own.

Earlier this year, she opened up to Parents about why motherhood was so important to her.

“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and something I’ve waited a long time for,” she said. “I feel lucky that I got to do it at this special time. For me, it’s particularly special because I lost my mom a year and a half ago, and she was my best friend. I’ve always wanted to be a mom because I want to give a kid all of the magical gifts my mom gave to me, such as love and friendship.”

She continued, “She and I had this incredible connection that was so unbelievable. I honestly feel that this happening was a gift from her to me.”
