Jennifer Love Hewitt thinks pregnancy is ''magical''.

The 'Criminal Minds' star is expecting her second child with husband Brian Hallisay and is just as excited about the impending arrival as she was last time.

She said: ''Pregnancy is magical. I'm grateful.

''It's not lost on me what a gift it is to be able to get pregnant.''

And the 36-year-old actress - who already has sixteen-month-old Autumn with 'The Client List' star - will already be used to getting cravings but says she isn't desperate to eat anything ''too weird'' this time around.

When asked about her cravings, she added: ''Nothing too weird, although pickles for me this time have actually been a thing ... I sort of just like the things that I normally like, but more of it.

''I'm a big jalapeno person when I'm pregnant, which I like anyway. Italian food, which I kind of like anyway. You know cake, hotdogs, you name it really. Pretty much anything.''

Since becoming pregnant again, Jennifer and Brian have been enjoying laid back date nights at home in the company of their little girl.

She told American Baby magazine: ''Date night looks a lot like DVR, some sort of brought-in dinner substance or me cooking, and right now I go to bed at like 8:15. So it's a lot like being married to Betty White.''
