Jennifer Love Hewitt definitely has that pregnancy glow — and she’s loving it!
“[Being pregnant] is an awesome thing,” the actress told PEOPLE at Pampers‘ Love, Sleep and Play campaign in New York on Wednesday. “It definitely has its moments where you’re like, ‘Oh my gosh this is crazy,’ but it’s been beautiful.”
One reason Hewitt, 34, continues to look fabulous while pregnant – despite her cupcake cravings – is because she’s upped her exercise routine.
“I’ve actually worked out more pregnant than when I wasn’t. I’ve been working out about five to six days a week,” she explains. “I do a lot of swimming, Pilates, yoga — all good stuff for baby and for me. It gets difficult the bigger you get because it’s more uncomfortable, but it’s important.
The actress, who recently got engaged to her Client List costar Brian Hallisay, says planning her wedding is on hold for now.
“I’m not putting that on myself also! We’re going to wait,” she says. “I’m going to get down and be cute again and then we’ll be ready to go.”
Hewitt and Hallisay have also chosen to await a delivery surprise when it comes to their first child.
“I’m due in December and I don’t know what I’m having. Meeting the baby is what I’m most excited about,” she says.
As for what she’s most terrified for, Hewitt says: “Learning to breastfeed!”

Jennifer Love Hewitt is going to get more than just Christmas gifts this holiday season.
“The Client List” actress, 34, told ABC News last night at a Pampers event in New York City that she is due in December.
If that wasn’t a big enough gift, the birth of Hewitt’s baby will come with another big surprise – the gender of the child. “I don’t know,” she said of whether it’s a boy or a girl. “It’s one of life’s greatest surprises and we wanted to keep it that way.”
The biggest transition for Hewitt, who announced her pregnancy and engagement to “Client List” co-star Brian Hallisay in June, is that she’s amazed by the changes to her body.
“You wake up in the morning and you go, “Wow, this is no longer my body,” she said. “What’s going to happen today? It teaches you to not be in control and I’ve been a control freak for a long time.”
She’s also suddenly a sweets person.
“I like cake all of the sudden,” the “I Know What You Did Last Summer” star said. “I never was a cake person.”
Hewitt said her and Hallisay are just so excited to meet their baby and that they are definitely waiting until after the birth to start the wedding plans.
“Yeah, let’s tackle one big life thing at a time,” she added.
Pregnancy is the perfect opportunity to indulge a sweet tooth — and Jennifer Love Hewitt isn’t holding back.
“Cupcakes seem to be a thing, but that’s always been a thing,” the mom-to-be told PEOPLE during the Mickey Through the Decades Collection launch event in Burbank, Calif. on Saturday.
“I want to blame it on pregnancy, but it’s really always been my favorite. Now, I have the ability to eat three instead of one, which is nice.”
To balance out the batches of baked goods, Hewitt, 34, has continued her almost-daily workout regimen. The exercise, she says, isn’t just about staying in shape.
“I’m doing yoga and cardio and all of that stuff, so it’s been good,” Hewitt shares. “I think it’s been making a big difference in how I feel, too.”
As Hewitt and her fiancé Brian Hallisay anticipate the arrival of their first child this fall, the expectant actress is “taking time off” to enjoy both her engagement and pending parenthood. “I’m still waiting to hear what happens with [my show] Client List,” she adds.
It’s been years since she starred in ’90s staple Can’t Hardly Wait, and Jennifer Love Hewitt tells Us Weekly that she’s learned a thing or two about patience in that time. The first-time mom, 34, explains that she’s having a smooth pregnancy so far because she’s choosing not to stress about the unknown.
“I think most people, when they’re getting ready to be a mom, they go, ‘Oh my gosh, I have to have all of the answers right now,’ but every kid is different, every parent is different and every child and parent relationship is different, so you just sort of have to wait until you’re in it and do the best that you can to try to be Zen in the middle of it all,” Hewitt told Us at Old Navy’s “Mickey Through the Decades Collection” launch in Burbank, Calif. on Saturday, July 13.
Hewitt, who is expecting her first child with Client List costar Brian Hallisay, rocked a grey Mickey Mouse tank top and dark jeans at the Disney and Old Navy event.
The expectant mother shared her secrets to a stress-free pregnancy, telling Us that she is working with a trainer on a regimen that includes yoga and pilates, as well as “cardio and weights so my arms are strong to hold the baby.”
And, Hewitt tells Us, the couple is opting to keep an element of surprise around the baby’s birth (she and Hallisay don’t know the gender of the baby).
“You sort of have these pictures in your mind of what [the baby's going to look like],” she said. “I’m really excited to see what he or she is going to look like!”
Us Weekly exclusively broke the news of the actress’ pregnancy in early June. Hewitt and Hallisay began dating 16 months ago when they reconnected on the set of their hit Lifetime show after previously appearing together on the short-lived NBC series Love Bites.
“I’m off work for the moment, for the summer,” she told Us of getting some rest during her pregnancy. “It’s a really happy, positive time, which I’m grateful for.”
