"I'm so happy for her and Brian," Egglesfield told me at Chrysalis' Butterfly Ball. "Jennifer deserves it. She's such an amazing person and you can just tell she was ready and so wanting to be a mom and a wife. I couldn't be happier for her."
Egglesfield found about the happy news about an hour before it broke in the press.
"That baby is going to be so spoiled!" Egglesfield said. "Jennifer is an amazing cook. She just loves to spoil. Not only with her close friends but with everyone on set. That baby is going to be one lucky kid."
No word if the baby will be written into the script. Either way, Egglesfield said, we shouldn't expect mommyhood to slow Hewitt down.
"You hear about Heidi Klum going on the runway for the Victoria's Secret fashion show a month after giving birth," he said. "So I wouldn't be surprised if Jennifer was back to work right away."
