Jennifer Love Hewitt is loving life as a mama-to-be!
The "Criminal Minds" star is putting her baby bump on display on the cover of the May issue of American Baby, showing off her curves in a colorful printed tank and black leggings.
In the accompanying article and an interview with Parents, the actress talks about the positives of pregnancy, what she's been craving and the importance of treating yourself.
"Pregnancy is magical. I'm grateful," she tells the mag. "It's not lost on me what a gift it is to be able to get pregnant."
Mrs. Brian Hallisay admits that she's always watched her weight, but being pregnant allows her to enjoy some guilty pleasures.
"I've been an actress for 25 years, and have had to be hungry at times for my career, so being pregnant is completely freeing," she reveals. "When I was expecting Autumn, I ate everything I saw! I told myself, 'Oh there's a donut – I should have that.' Now with this second pregnancy, I know the baby really doesn't 'need it.' So I eat healthy foods in general, but I also indulge in little things that I crave."
So, what are her favorite treats?
"Nothing too weird, although pickles for me this time have actually been a thing…I sort of just like the things that I normally like, but more of it," she explains. "I'm a big jalapeno person when I'm pregnant, which I like anyway. Italian food, which I kind of like anyway. You know cake, hotdogs, you name it really. Pretty much anything."
The brunette beauty is clearly enjoying the perks of pregnancy ... and her new curvy figure.
"Your body changes so much, and there's a sensuality about that," she says. "I say accentuate the fact that your legs look thinner than they ever have, and your boobs look great: Work it!"
