"We're so thrilled and happy to start a family," she said.

A source told US Weekly the star is three months along in her pregnancy and is about to enter her second trimester.

Hewitt and Hallisay began dating 15 months ago after reconnecting on the set of their Lifetime show, and previously appeared together on the now-canceled NBC show, "Love Bites."

Hewitt was previously engaged to actor Ross McCall, who she began dating in 2005, but broke it off in 2008. Hewitt and Hallisay are both 34, and the actress has always been adamantly vocal about her desire to settle down, get married and have children.

"I would love to to have babies...one day," Hewitt said Us Weekly in 2010. "I'm obsessed with babies!"

Now it looks like her dream has finally come true. The star's announcement comes a year after she lost her mother, Patricia, to cancer. A source told US Weekly in March that Hewitt was considering having her eggs frozen to prolong her fertility over the years, as she was allegedly afraid she would end up childless.

"[She] feels worried that she will end up single, since none of her relationships have been successful," the source said to the gossip magazine. "If it doesn't work out with Brian, then she can still be a mom one day."

And if Hallisay wants to get engaged, Hewitt already has a list of potential engagement rings picked out. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres in 2011, Hewitt admitted she had made a list of three Tiffany engagement rings picked out in advance, so whoever proposed to her would be one step ahead of the game. At the time of the interview, Hewitt was dating actor-director Alex Beh, but the two soon split up.

Skin layer grown from human stem cells could replace animals in drug and cosmetics testing

An international team led by King's College London and the San Francisco Veteran Affairs Medical Center (SFVAMC) has developed the first lab-grown epidermis – the outermost skin layer - with a functional permeability barrier akin to real skin. The new epidermis, grown from human pluripotent stem cells, offers a cost-effective alternative lab model for testing drugs and cosmetics, and could also help to develop new therapies for rare and common skin disorders.

Too many chefs: Smaller groups exhibit more accurate decision-making

The trope that the likelihood of an accurate group decision increases with the abundance of brains involved might not hold up when a collective faces a variety of factors - as often happens in life and nature. Instead, Princeton University researchers report that smaller groups actually tend to make more accurate decisions while larger assemblies may become excessively focused on only certain pieces of information.
