Congrats are in order for Criminal Minds actress AJ Cook this evening, with the news that she has become a mum for the second time.

AJ, who plays Jennifer "JJ" Jareau on the popular crime drama, welcomed her second son in the early hours of this morning, her rep confirmed to Us Weekly today. The little one, who was born weighing 7lbs 6oz, is named Phoenix Sky Andersen.

AJ and her husband Nathan Andersen are also parents to a six-year-old son, Mekhai Allan.

Phoenix's arrival bears special significance for AJ, who celebrated her 37th birthday just yesterday. Celebrations were pretty low-key, as it is be expected considering AJ was preparing to give birth, but her husband made sure to bring her an extra special treat all the same… her favourite fast food.

"Took Alexander out for a fancy birthday meal," Nathan wrote, posting a picture of a bag of food from iconic burger chain In-N-Out on Instagram.

Nathan and AJ announced they were expecting back in March, calling their second pregnancy a "miracle" and a "blessing".

The expectant parents even revealed their baby's gender that same day, with Nathan taking to social media to say, "Since @ajcook announced we are expecting a new addition to the clan, I guess it's my responsibility to inform everyone it's a boy!"

We can't wait to see a first snap.


Jennifer Love Hewitt and her husband Brian Hallisay have welcomed a baby boy, it has been confirmed.

The couple have named their new son Atticus James Hallisay. This is the second child for the couple who also have a daughter, 1-year-old Autumn James Hallisay.

The Heartbreakers star announced that she was pregnant again in January. Ms Hewitt and her husband met when they were both starring on The Client List in 2012, and they tied the knot in 2013.

For the 36-year-old actress, her fictional on-screen life followed her personal life. Her character on Criminal Minds, FBI profiler Kate Callahan, left after one season so as that she could focus on her family life.

Speaking in the May issue of American Baby, Jennifer told the magazine that “Pregnancy is magical. I’m grateful. It’s not lost on me what a gift it is to be able to get pregnant.”

Ms Hewitt went on to explain how important it is to take of yourself when you are pregnant, for both your and the baby’s sake.

“Because so many of us are busy or driven, we forget to take care of ourselves,” she explained. “But when you’re pregnant, it’s all about you – and that baby inside of you. Enjoy a nap; for some reason our generation thinks we can’t do that! Really listen to your body. I hope to continue to be a little kinder to myself after pregnancy.”

A big congratulations to the new parents! We’re dying to see some pics of baby Atticus already! 



Nicholas Brendon, the actor who played Xander on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, has checked into rehab following a number of brushes with the law.

A statement was posted to the 44 year-old actor's Facebook page by his manager, Andrea Albin, explaining the why the move is needed.

“Earlier today, with the support of his professional team, his friends, and his family, Nicky entered a rehabilitation facility in California to treat his depression, alcoholism, and substance abuse problems.

"He’s taking the steps necessary to better his health and give himself, and his fans, the gift of a healthy lifestyle.”

Last month, the actor who is also known for his roles in Criminal Minds and Private Practice, was arrested for the third time this year alone, on public intoxication charges. 

He was arrested in February on suspicion of grand theft and criminal mischief.

A month later he was arrested again for allegedly trashing a hotel room. Previously to that, he was arrested in October 2014 for malicious injury to property. 

The statement further explained that “Nicky will not be attending any events during the months of June and July – but has plans to return to the circuit late summer after he has successfully completed his treatment program.”

Nicholas has already been admitted to rehab twice before, in 2004 and again in 2010.



Criminal Minds actress AJ Cook has announced that she is expecting her second child.

AJ revealed the exciting news with an impossibly sweet Instagram post of her small bump, captioned: “Miracles do happen and don’t believe anyone who tells you otherwise. #blessed #bump.”

Congratulations to the happy family on their wonderful news!
