Jennifer Love Hewitt isn't just an actress anymore. She's also a happy wife and mother!

On Monday, Sept. 30, the former Ghost Whisperer star appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live where she shared some interesting details about her marriage and childbirth.

The 35-year-old actress recounted the series of events that led to the birth of their first child last November. Surprisingly, she accredited her successful labor to keeping her husband happy, reports People magazine.

But, how'd she do it all at such a crucial time? She reportedly kept a stash of snacks that served as comfort food for them both while she delivered their daughter!

“This is the thing, too, if you are in labor, feed your husband and they are wonderful. He can’t be hungry — you need them!” she explained.

The Criminal Minds star went on to give a comical explanation for keeping her man well fed! “If he passed out or something bad happened out of being hungry, then I don’t get what I need, which is my rock,” she insisted. “I had pudding for him and snack bars … it was great!”

Although the concept of snacks for comfort during labor wasn't guaranteed to help, she also revealed it did.

“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,’" she said.

“I was really proud of him. He’s that guy anyway, so he’s impressive in that way, but he was great.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt began dating her Client List co-star Brian Hallisay in March of 2012. The couple tied the knot on November 21, 2013, just five days before the birth of their daughter, Autumn.
