Looks like Jennifer Love Hewitt and her husband Brian Hallisay just became a party of four (sorry, we had to). The couple, who met on the set of Lifetime’s The Client List, welcomed a baby boy yesterday!

Jennifer and Brian must be To Kill a Mockingbird fans, because the baby name they chose for their newborn son is straight from Harper Lee’s classic. Little Atticus James Hallisay joined his two-year-old big sister Autumn James Hallisay. The creative baby name sounds like a classic (and it is) but it’s been a rising favorite among parents, even becoming one of the most popular of last year on baby name site Nameberry.


Not only are we lovin’ this bookworm-approved name, but note that JLH and her hubby gave their children matching middle names. New baby name trend?! We think so. Or at least that’s a pretty darn clever way to save on monogramming with the matching initials and all.

The 36-year-old, who is the current face of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula, Tweeted the above pregnancy photos from her shoot with the brand on her Twitter back in May. “We didn’t have a night nurse, we didn’t have a nanny,” Hewitt told People at the time, “We haven’t ever had any of that stuff. It’s been really interesting to do it all ourselves.” Congratulations to the happy family! Now about those first pictures…
