Childhood: Jennifer Love Hewitt was born to Patricia Mae and Herbert Daniel Hewitt in Waco, Texas and was raised in the Nolanville area after her parents divorced. Jennifer and her elder brother Todd were raised by their mother.

After taking a number of roles in TV series such as Shaky Ground, The Byrds of Paradise and McKenna In the early 1990s, Hewitt then crossed over into the mainstream with her role in the Fox TV series Party of Five. The show also starred Neve Campbell, Matthew Fox and Lacey Chabert. When Party of Five finished, she also appeared in the spin-off Time of Your Life. Hewitt worked a co-producer on the show, but it was cancelled after just half a season.

When the material for the next album failed to make an impact on the record-buying public, Atlantic released Hewitt from the contract, putting a brief halt on her musical career.
