Jennifer Love Hewitt of 9-1-1 is in the holiday spirit and goes on Instagram to share some ornaments that are made from love.
Hewitt, who plays Maddie Buckley on the Fox first-responder procedural drama, gives us a view of Christmas cheer.
She wrote this caption and shared it on the social media platform.
“My mother-in-law handmade these ornaments for us,” Hewitt writes. “They mean so much. We are doing the tree today and I’m feeling very blessed. Family is everything.
“I cried so hard last night missing my mommy,” the 9-1-1 actress said. “She was all the magic of Christmas. But it is my greatest joy to try and recreate that for my family. Wishing all of you a very merry holiday season and sending so much love to all of those missing someone. Back to the tree and making memories”.
On the show, her character is the sister of Buck Buckley, played by Oliver Stark.
Hewitt has been a part of the show since its second season. Angela Bassett and Peter Krause headline the cast on 9-1-1.
‘9-1-1’ Actress Prepared For ‘Fight or Flight’ Action Scenes on Show
For some people who have followed her career, maybe action scenes and 9-1-1 star Jennifer Love Hewitt don’t readily go together.
But she talked with Assignment X about how she approaches action sequences on the show.
While some people may not see Maddie duking it out, Hewitt has had her fair share of stunts. Can the fans of the show forget when Maddie fought off her abusive ex-husband?
“We kind of worked on the day as we went with things, to figure out what felt best,” Hewitt said. “The main thing was that it didn’t and shouldn’t have felt like a stunt, it should have felt like a real woman who was fighting for her life. So we played around with just trying to make it as real as possible.”
One thing that did surprise Hewitt is that Maddie ends up killing him.

We mentioned above, Outsiders, that Hewitt had an action scene where she beat up and killed her abusive husband.
It turns out that the 9-1-1 episode featured her and real-life husband Brian Hallisay. It was Hallisay who portrayed Doug Kendall.
Yep, he gets killed by his real-life wife. How did she feel about her husband playing opposite her?
Hewitt wrote on Instagram in April 2019, “Tonight my heart is so full. I am so proud of my husband’s performance. I am so proud that I get to be in this show and I am so proud of Maddie.”
