Jennifer Love Hewitt married her actor partner Brian Hallisay just five days before giving birth to her first child. The actress' publicist confirmed the surprise wedding news following the arrival of the couple's daughter, Autumn, in November (13), revealing they married in secret before her arrival. Hewitt has now opened up about the low-key ceremony, admitting she wed less than a week before becoming a mother, and followed the intimate nuptials with a trip to a homeware store. She tells U.S. TV host Ellen DeGeneres, "I got married... Five days before she was born, basically... It was just the two of us and then we went to (store) Bed, Bath and Beyond because that's what married people do... It was... really sweet and he's an awesome, incredible father and a great husband and I just feel really lucky." Hewitt also reveals she struggled to keep her pregnancy a secret during her last appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres in April, 2013 due to her blossoming figure. She adds, "I was already pregnant and I couldn't tell anybody... The wardrobe (department) put me in this dress... And (my breasts) 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!'" The interview on The Ellen DeGeneres show airs in the U.S. on Tuesday (01Apr14).
