Jennifer Love Hewitt has shared the exciting news that she and her husband Brian Hallisay have welcomed their third child as they shared his adorable name.

Actors Jennifer Love Hewitt and Brian Hallisay are already proud parents to daughter Autumn James (7) and son Atticus James (6). Now the delighted couple have taken to Instagram to announce that Jennifer has given birth to their third child. And the Ghost Whisperer star shared the news in a wonderfully unique way as she posted a sweet snap taken before her and Brian’s baby son arrived.

Well this is how my kids sent me to the hospital,’ she wrote, alongside the deeply personal black-and-white picture of her baby bump, complete with eye and eyelash decorations to form a stylised face.

Meanwhile, across her stomach the words, ‘Almost cooked’ as well as ‘It’s a boy’ and ‘9 months’ were clearly visible.

My belly was a big hit,’ Jennifer informed her Instagram followers, before going on to make an even more important announcement. 

‘“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”,’ her heartfelt caption continued. 

‘It was my greatest honor to go and collect you Aidan James. Now back to snuggles and resting. 👶🏻🧡’ 

Her and Brian’s newborn son’s popular baby name is made all the more beautiful for the way it links to his older siblings. Not only do they each have James as a middle name, all three of Jennifer and Brian’s children’s names begin with the same letter. 

And both the name choice and news of Aidan’s birth have been met with overwhelming support from fans and celebrities alike. Many were quick to comment their congratulations to the devoted parents after waiting for news of their third baby’s arrival.
