Jennifer Love Hewitt is expecting a second child.

The 'Criminal Minds' actress - who has a 13-month-old daughter Autumn James with her husband Brian Hallisay - is pregnant again People magazine has confirmed.

Her representative said: ''Jennifer and Brian are thrilled to be expecting their second child.''

The brunette beauty has previously confessed to avoiding people throughout her first pregnancy as she found they were often rude about her figure.

She said: ''People are mean to you! You're like, 'I'm a pregnant lady. You can't be mean to me,' and they're like, 'Well, then tell us what your baby is!' and I'm like, 'I don't know.'

''And then they guess, which is insulting for the woman because they're like, 'Oh, well, you're really carrying in the backside.' I'm like, 'I have been carrying in the backside since I was 15. This is not pregnancy - it's just who I am!'

''Or they're like, 'It's really in your boobs!' And I'm like, 'Yeah, it's been there, too, since I was 15.' They say the dumbest things ...I just avoided people most of my pregnancy and after. And I was happy!''

However, Jennifer, 35, was thankful for the company of her husband Brian, who she credited with being a great support in the delivery room and joked the 36-year-old actor should do it for a living.

She said: ''He should be a male doula. I was really worried that I was going to get that face, 'Mmm, what's happening here?' - and I'm not good at the faces so I would've been like, 'What does that mean? What does that mean!'

''But he was just like, 'This is great. I am so proud of you right now. This is awesome, you look beautiful.' I was really proud of him.''
