Not only does Jennifer Love Hewitt share her life with her husband, Brian Hallisay, she has also shared screentime with him as well. And, getting to do so has been a joy for the “9-1-1” actress and former “Party of Five Star.”

According to Yahoo! Life, Hewitt plays the character of Maddie Buckley in Fox’s “9-1-1” television series. During 2018 and 2019, Hallisay joined the cast as Doug Kendall. When he left the show, his wife shared a little about what it was like to work with him on the show via Instagram. She shared her thoughts alongside a photo of them in costume and makeup.

“Tonight my heart is so full,” the actress shared in April 2019. “I am so proud of my husbands (sic) performance. I am so proud that I get to be in this show and I am so proud of Maddie. …”

Jennifer Love Hewitt also talked about what it was like to work with Brian Hallisay during an interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada that same year.

“It was just lovely to go to work together,” the 42-year-old actress said. And, she also talked about how the characters they played made working together special for them.

“We both had never been able to play characters like this in our careers, these characters with dark, twisted things to them. And, so, that’s been really fun for us.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt and Her Husband, Brian Hallisay, Worked Together Before ‘9-1-1’ Series

Appearing in “9-1-1” was not the first time Jennifer Love Hewitt and her husband, Brian Hallisay, have worked together. They reportedly met on the television series, “Love Bites.” Their relationship began to become more than co-stars in 2012 when they worked together on “The Client List.”

By June 2013, they were engaged and pregnant with their first child. They were married during November 2013. Their first child, a daughter named Autumn, was born that same month. Their second child, a son named Atticus, came along within two years of their marriage.

In November 2020, Hewitt again posted about Hallisay on Instagram. “7 years today married to the man of my dreams. 7 years no itch. Feeling very grateful,” she posted along with a photo of them together.

Jennifer Love Hewitt has also said that being married to Brian Hallisay and having children has allowed her to grow as an actress.

“In acting now, it’s been a really interesting gift because your job as an actor is to crack yourself open as much as possible and give that to people,” she told Us Weekly in 2019. “I think before whereas I had to imagine what that was like, now I actually feel that on a daily basis in good ways and in bad ways, depending on the day and the moment with (my) kids and (my) husband. It’s been a beautiful gift as an actor. It’s a much more accessible thing for me now in a way that I didn’t know was possible.”
