"She came early!" the 35-year-old actress told us exclusively of her quickie, low-key wedding (it was just the two of them) last night. "It was just under the wire."
So what did Hewitt wear to tie the knot while nine months pregnant? "I wore the only thing in my closet that fit me!" she laughed, adding, "Which was a really nice cotton maxi dress and that was it!"
Hewitt says she and Hallisay have no plans for a big wedding celebration in the future. "I think that was it," the new mom smiled. "I think that it was perfect the way that it was."
Hewitt says motherhood is going "great" and that Hallisay is an amazing father. "He's really hands-on," she gushed. "It's really fifty-fifty for us. He's a tremendous father."
And it sounds like Hewitt and Hallisay may be expanding their family sooner rather than later! "I'd love to have another one!" she said without hesitation. "Loved the whole experience. I'd do it again tomorrow."
Meanwhile, at lat night's L by Jennifer Love Hewitt launch party at A Pea in the Pod, Hewitt opened up about the difficulties of dealing with one's post-pregnancy body.
"It's hard, it's really hard," Hewitt admitted. "And I wasn't sure where I was going to fall and what was going to happen and how I was going to feel. It just feels great to sort of be honest about the fact that it is tough and these clothes make it a little easier, make me feel beautiful. I'm still in a lot of my pregnancy clothes and there is just where I feel good right now. Everything hasn't returned back to where I want it to be and put on my other clothes and feel good about that."
"If your priorities are right, the baby's most important," she went on. "You have to eat to feed to your baby. And I have a girl so I want her to see some day why her mom has good self-esteem and good body issues. It gets you down sometimes, I'm not going to lie. I've had days where I'm like, ‘Ugh, I wish this was easier.' But it's not, and that's OK."
