Love Hewitt: Swimming’s good for swelling

Pregnant Jennifer Love Hewitt, who is just around the corner from giving birth, has confessed she is no longer resisting her cravings for chocolate cake.

The 36-year-old Criminal Minds actress and her husband Brian Hallisay announced they were expecting their second child together back in January.

But Jennifer, who is due to give birth within weeks, hasn’t slacked with exercise at all ahead of her due date.

"I've been working out five days a week," she told ET Online. "It's a combination of boxing, swimming -- really good for swelling."

Jennifer and Brian are already parents to daughter Autumn, who was born on November 26, 2013.

And even though the Hot in Cleveland star is pretty strict about keeping to a regular fitness regimen, she will not spare herself the joy of eating delicious desserts.

"The last four days I have been craving Ralphs chocolate birthday cake!" Jennifer said. "You have nine months to enjoy. Don't go crazy because it's really hard to come off afterwards, and it doesn't happen in two seconds like it looks like in Hollywood. I would say pace yourself but definitely enjoy, especially at the end. What's another five pounds when you have like a month to go? You're like, 'Whatever. It's a cake.'"

Jennifer shot a stunning photo campaign with her baby bump on full display for Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula, a product used to help treat stretch marks.

The actress is very proud to be a part of the campaign, telling Us Weekly she “wanted to support the brand by baring my pregnant belly to celebrate the beauty of expectant mothers”.

But in her interview with ET, Jennifer also called attention to the fact Palmer’s products aren’t just beneficial for pregnant women.

"I think it's important to say that some skinny people who have never been pregnant also have stretch marks, so do not feel like it's just something that happens to pregnant people," she said.
