Jennifer Love Hewitt is about to say "I do" to motherhood.
"The Client List" star has announced that she's engaged to her TV co-star Brian Hallisay, and she's expecting her first baby. The 34-year-old actress first met her fiance on the set of the short-lived series "Love Bites," but when that show fizzled, they met up again for "The Client List," where they clearly mixed business with pleasure.
The couple told Us Weekly, "We're so thrilled and happy to start a family."
"The Client List" co-stars aren't the first celebs to find love -- and marriage -- on a TV set. Check out these other couples who tied the knot after a TV spot.
Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa
Years Married: 17Kid Count: 3
Former "All My Children" stars Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa met on the soap set in 1995 (he played her hunky lover, Mateo), and they recently celebrated their 17th wedding anniversary. On her morning chat fest, "Live with Kelly and Michael," Ripa said, "I'm sure it must feel like 200 years for him, but for me, it feels like minutes. It feels like I've blinked my eyes and we've been married for 17 years. Really crazy." She later tweeted a pic from their Vegas wedding day. You can see it here.
Years Married: 7Kid Count: 4 (plus his son from his first marriage)
A love struck Tori Spelling met hubby #2 Dean McDermott on the set of the TV movie "Mind Over Murder." After tying up their loose ends (like divorcing their then-spouses!), they got hitched after a Christmas Eve marriage proposal in 2005. They wed in a private ceremony in Fiji less than five months after Dean popped the question, and went on to help plan other people's weddings on the reality show "Tori & Dean: sTORIbook Weddings."
Back when he was still the Fresh Prince, Will Smith met his future wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, on the set of his NBC sitcom, "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air," when she auditioned for the role of his girlfriend. She didn't get the part, but they made real life romance happen. Of the persistent rumors that the laid back couple has an open relationship, Jada told Huffington Post, "I've always told Will, 'You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay. Because at the end of the day, Will is his own man. I'm here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be and that's not for me to do for him. Or vice versa."
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian
Years Married: 2Kid Count: 2 from Cibrian's marriage to Brandi Glanville
The set of the Lifetime movie "Northern Lights" was the setting for LeAnn Rimes' off-camera relationship with Eddie Cibrian, despite the fact that they were both married to other people. They divorced their spouses and married at a private California home in 2011. Although the country star has expressed regret over how she handled the affair (she told Us Weekly her actions made her "disgusted"), she recently revealed to omg! Insider, "I remember talking to Eddie and I was like, 'Are you scared?' And he said, 'Yeah.' We both could have walked away and said, 'Screw this. This is too much.' And we haven't and still don't."
Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel
Years Married/Kid Count: To be continued
"Mad Men" star Vincent Kartheiser and Season 5 co-star, actress Alexis Bledel, got engaged earlier this year, after one year of dating. The bride-to-be told Us that her fiancé picked out the engagement ring, a massive round-cut diamond on a platinum band, but that they'll plan the wedding together. Meanwhile, let's hope their real life union ends better than their fictional one; Bledel's story arc on the AMC drama (she played Pete Campbell's mistress) ended when her character had a lobotomy!
