Art imitates life! During Monday April 19th, return from 9-1-1, Jennifer Love HewittMaddie eventually gave birth to her and Chimney’s (Kenneth Choi) daughter after going to work while at work. Now the 42-year-old actress no longer has to wear the wrong baby bump that was actually hers from years ago.
“It was handcrafted for me when I was writing my pregnancy story Spirit Whisperers. It’s such an amazing belly because it’s weighted so you actually feel [pregnant]. I peed every two seconds all season because it actually pressed on my stomach, ”said Hewitt Us weekly exclusively. “It’s really good. When the story came out, I said,” Guys, I can even take care of my own stomach! Get excited! ‘”
She also noted that filming a birth scene was easier this time than it was on Spirit Whispererswhich aired from 2005 to 2010 as she now had the experience herself. Hewitt shares daughter Autumn (7) and son Atticus (5) with husband Brian Hallisay.
“I was 26 years old. I had no idea what I was doing. I would watch some other people doing it in front of the camera, ”he said Client list Alum explained. “This time I was able to really draw from my personal experiences – so much that it was really uncomfortable for the crew. It really was like you were at work. It was pretty fun and took forever! “
The singer noted that the birth scene was long and she had to “push for a good eight hours” at the end of the day.
“It was pretty exhausting. I broke small capillaries on my face and had a sore throat the next day. I could hardly speak, ”she said. “I literally lay in bed the whole next day after filming this!”
What comes next, the Heartbreakers star says there will be a small jump in time before Maddie gets back to work after maternity leave, and audiences will “see all the complicated emotions that come with it.”
Fans hoping Maddie and Chimney will take the next steps in their relationship and get engaged may wait a little longer, even though they are “a pretty solid” couple, according to Hewitt.
“We’re almost at the end of filming so it doesn’t seem like this is necessarily going to happen this season, but I think it will,” said the Texas native. “But I, the rest of the season, play very real. Most of the conversations are about being a parent, having a new baby, or being tired, or the things they’ve dealt with at work. “
9-1-1 airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on Fox. ET.
