Jennifer Love Hewitt Welcomes Baby Number 3 With Husband | 22 Words

It's a boy!

Jennifer Love Hewitt recently welcomed her third child with her husband Brian Hallisay.

On Thursday, the forty-two-year-old actress announced the happy news on Instagram.

Posting a black-and-white filtered photograph of her belly, she wrote this: "Well this is how my kids sent me to the hospital. My belly was a big hit."

She continued:

"It is said that women leave their bodies in labor… They travel to the stars to collect the souls of their babies and return to this world together. It was my greatest honor to go and collect you, Aidan James. Now back to snuggles and resting."

The news of the birth comes 4 months after we initially heard that Hewitt was expecting. Back in May, she posted this snapshot to make the big announcement:

"Oh, baby! We have another one on the way. So excited to finally share this news with all of you," the 9-1-1 star gushed.

She also spoke to PEOPLE Magazine at the time, saying she and her husband were always "open" to the possibility of having another child.

"We had always been open to a third, but definitely didn't think in the crazy year that the entire world was having that it would necessarily be this moment."

"I feel like we've been able to so far raise two really special kids who will be great role models," she added. "This has been such a pleasant, beautiful, surprising gift in this time to be able to get to do all that again with another little human."

Baby Aidan joins siblings Autumn, who is 7 years old, and Atticus, who is 5 as the third blessing for the family.

Congratulations to the happy couple! We can't wait to see photos of the little one!
