Jennifer Love Hewitt is sporting a very obvious baby bump these days, and during a recent interview for American Baby's May issue, she calls this--her second pregnancy--magical.

"Pregnancy is magical," she told the publication. "I'm grateful. It's not lost on me what a gift it is to be able to get pregnant."

Daughter Autumn was born in November of 2013, and Jennifer Love Hewitt admits she learned a lot from that pregnancy.

"I've been an actress for 25 years, and have had to be hungry at times for my career, so being pregnant is completely freeing," the Criminal Minds actress explained. "When I was expecting Autumn, I ate everything I saw! I told myself, 'Oh there's a donut--I should have that.' Now with this second pregnancy, I know the baby really doesn’t 'need it.' So I eat healthy foods in general, but I also indulge in little things that I crave."

"Your body changes so much, and there's a sensuality about that," she added. "I say accentuate the fact that your legs look thinner than they ever have, and your boobs look great: Work it!"

Jennifer Love Hewitt also shared that being pregnant has resulted in her having beautiful hair and nails--and that the way people treat you while pregnant is a huge plus, too.

"You will never be treated as kindly in your whole life as you are when you're pregnant, especially by complete strangers," she said. "People open doors for you and ask things like, 'Do you need some water?'"

American Sniper actor Brian Hallisay--Jennifer Love Hewitt's husband of two years now--reportedly treats the Party of Five alum like a queen.

"I tell Brian he should be a male doula because he was a genius during labor," she told American Baby her hubby. "He’s a very calm, super-stable person by nature and doesn't add drama. He treats me to things, like when I text him that I’m craving the cherry pie from Ralph's market. I think most men get these superpowers when their partners are pregnant."

It sounds like pregnancy truly is magical for Jennifer Love Hewitt. With her revelations, she likely has made more than a few women a little bit jealous. After all, not everyone looks as adorable as she does while pregnant, and they're not all married to handsome American Sniper stars.
