Jennifer Love Hewitt is designing a maternity line! The mother-to-be (she's due next month) recently collaborated with A Pea in the Pod to create a 15-piece capsule collection featuring casual pieces from maxi dresses, leggings, soft tees, to a French terry jacket. We weren't surprised when we found out that the 34-year-old actress designed a collection with the maternity wear retailer, she kind of hinted at it when we caught up with Hewitt at the Pamper’s Love, Sleep, & Play event in New York City this past August. "A Pea in the Pod has kept me very, very stylish and comfortable which has been nice," she said. "I have enjoyed finding my maternity clothes, I still do a mixture of maternity and non-maternity, it's been nice to find good pieces that have sort of fit the bump well."

As for her personal maternity style, Hewitt let us in on the secret to dressing while pregnant and you'd be surprised to learn what she discovered. "What I’ve really realized is that the bigger you get, the better to go a little bit tighter in the clothing because there is a purpose for it," she said. "Otherwise you end up looking like you’re in this gigantic tent and you’re this floating tiny head with this big body," she laughed. Hewitt isn't the first celebrity to design a capsule collection with A Pea in the Pod, she joins Nicole Richie, who launched her boho chic maternity line "Nicole" back in 2009, and Heidi Klum, whose line "Lavish" came out in 2010. Not bad company! We don't have long to wait for Hewitt's baby to arrive, but we have till March when her spring loungewear and weekend line, "L By Jennifer Love Hewitt," hits A Pea in the Pod and select Destination Maternity stores and online at
