“[Being pregnant] is an awesome thing,” the actress told PEOPLE at Pampers‘ Love, Sleep and Play campaign in New York on Wednesday. “It definitely has its moments where you’re like, ‘Oh my gosh this is crazy,’ but it’s been beautiful.”
One reason Hewitt, 34, continues to look fabulous while pregnant – despite her cupcake cravings – is because she’s upped her exercise routine.
“I’ve actually worked out more pregnant than when I wasn’t. I’ve been working out about five to six days a week,” she explains. “I do a lot of swimming, Pilates, yoga — all good stuff for baby and for me. It gets difficult the bigger you get because it’s more uncomfortable, but it’s important.”
The actress, who recently got engaged to her Client List costar Brian Hallisay, says planning her wedding is on hold for now.
“I’m not putting that on myself also! We’re going to wait,” she says. “I’m going to get down and be cute again and then we’ll be ready to go.”
Hewitt and Hallisay have also chosen to await a delivery surprise when it comes to their first child.
“I’m due in December and I don’t know what I’m having. Meeting the baby is what I’m most excited about,” she says.
As for what she’s most terrified for, Hewitt says: “Learning to breastfeed!”
