Jennifer Love Hewitt Welcomes a Son

The actress and her husband chose a literary moniker.

— -- It's a boy for Jennifer Love Hewitt!

The actress and her husband, actor Brian Hallisay, welcomed their second child Wednesday, her rep confirmed to ABC News.

The couple named the baby Atticus James.

Hewitt and Hallisay, both 36, were married about 18 months ago, just before she gave birth to their eldest, daughter Autumn James. In January, just more than a year later, the "Client List" actress revealed that they were expecting their second child.

Hewitt never announced the gender of the baby, but the first time around, she said that she didn't want to find out.

"It's one of life's greatest surprises and we wanted to keep it that way," she told ABC News.
