Jennifer Love Hewitt has kept a low profile since giving birth to daughter Autumn and marrying actor Brian Hallisay in November 2013. The 35-year-old actress stops by Tuesday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she opens up about her new life as a mom and a wife for the first time ever.
When Hewitt last appeared on the talk show in April 2013, her supple cleavage caught host Ellen DeGeneres' attention. "I was already pregnant and I couldn't tell anybody," the Hot in Cleveland guest star explains. "The wardrobe [department] put me in this dress and I had to be just like, 'Oh, awesome. This looks great.' And [my boobs] were like up here and I came out and all I saw was your face and you were like, 'Hey!' And then [guest co-host Matthew Perry] was like, 'hi,' and I was like, 'Hello!'"
Hewitt notes that she was "six or seven weeks" pregnant during her last appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and adds that her breasts "grew first in the pregnancy."

So how is her mini-me? "She's fantastic. She's sleeping better now, not so much in the beginning, which was a little rough. But, she's a great sleeper now," Hewitt says. "She watches your show everyday. We both get very excited when the theme song starts and she watches you dance."
The TV star also reveals that her daughter is a fan of Pharrell and Drake. "She's big into hip-hop and Latin music for some reason," she says. "She does the Dougie...I take her arms and do the Dougie...The second the show comes on and you start dancing she like she does this weird kick thing with her leg and she gets her little chair. She loves it. I think she's gonna be a dancer. I really do. She loves it."
Hewitt also opens up about marrying Hallisay, her Client List co-star, just "five days" before their daughter was born. "It was just the two of us and then we went to Bed, Bath and Beyond because that's what married people do," the newly blond actress says with a laugh. "It was very, it was really sweet and he's an awesome, incredible father and a great husband and I just feel really lucky."
