The ‘9-1-1’ star is already mother to son Atticus, five, and daughter Autumn, seven, and has revealed she’s now set to welcome another baby to the family, which has come as a pleasant surprise for her and her husband, Brian Hallisay.

She said: "We had always been open to a third, but definitely didn't think in the crazy year that the entire world was having that it would necessarily be this moment. I feel like we've been able to so far raise two really special kids who will be great role models. This has been such a pleasant, beautiful, surprising gift in this time to be able to get to do all that again with another little human."

And Jennifer said her two children can’t wait to welcome their younger sibling, as Atticus even guessed his mother was pregnant before the actress knew herself.

She added: "One night, my kids and I were laying in bed watching TV and a Clearblue commercial came on television. My son out of nowhere was like, 'Hey Mommy, you should order one of those in case there's a baby in your belly.’ I was like, 'How rude! I just ate a big dinner. What is he talking about?' It stuck with me, and they've been asking off and on for a year or so for a sibling. We weren't closed off to the idea, it just wasn't something that we were actively thinking about."

The ‘Client List’ actress, 42, also confirmed she won’t be having a fourth child, as having a family of five is enough.

Speaking to People magazine, she said: "I'm pretty sure. I don't think I could do another one. I think five is a great number."
