Pregnancy looks good on Jennifer Love Hewitt!

The 36-year-old Criminal Minds star dressed her baby bump in a printed maxi dress to celebrate Easter with her 36-year-old husband, Brian Hallisay, and their 16-month-old daughter, Autumn Hallisay. The actress, who carried a Saint Laurent bag wore and nude heels, enjoyed a family brunch at L.A.'s The Ivy.

Jennifer has only been photographed a handful of times since announcing her second pregnancy in January. Three months ago, a source told E! News that Jennifer and Brian are "excited about expanding."

"Jennifer knows having two children under 2 is going to be a lot of work, but she loves the idea of having her kids be close in age," the source said, noting that the former Client List co-stars love "being a family."

When Autumn's birth was announced in November 2013, the actress' rep also revealed that Jennifer had secretly married Brian; the wedding took place "five days" before their firstborn daughter arrived.

"It was just the two of us, and then we went to Bed, Bath and Beyond, because that's what married people do," the I Know What You Did Last Summer actress later joked on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "It was very, it was really sweet. He's an awesome, incredible father and a great husband and I just feel really lucky."

Hopefully Jennifer's second pregnancy is more enjoyable than her first.

"People are mean to you!" the Party of Five star told Jimmy Kimmel last year. "You're like, 'I'm a pregnant lady. You can't be mean to me,' and they're like, 'Well, then tell us what your baby is!' and I'm like, 'I don't know.' And then they guess, which is insulting for the woman because they're like, 'Oh, well, you're really carrying in the backside.' I'm like, 'I have been carrying in the backside since I was 15. This is not pregnancy—it's just who I am!' Or they're like, 'It's really in your boobs!' And I'm like, 'Yeah, it's been there, too, since I was 15.' They say the dumbest things...I just avoided people most of my pregnancy and after. And I was happy!"

During her Jimmy Kimmel Live! interview, Jennifer also gave Brian major kudos.

"He should be a male doula, my husband," the star gushed. "He was a rock. He was awesome. He was really good at it. He was very solid, very concentrated. I was really worried that I was gonna get [worrisome reactions]...But he was just like, 'Babe, this is great. I am so proud of you right now. This is awesome. You look beautiful.' He said all of the right things. It was amazing. I was really proud of him."
