Pregnant actress Jennifer Love Hewitt has turned designer to create a maternity clothing line.

The Ghost Whisperer star, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Brian Hallisay, has teamed up with maternity retailer A Pea in a Pod to design 15 items for mothers-to-be.

She tells People, "I wanted to design pieces that other moms-to-be could easily wear from the first trimester, throughout their pregnancy and even after their baby is born. It's one less thing you have to think about or stress over while your preparing for or spending time with your new baby!"

The star admits she took inspiration from a very stylish new mother - Halle Berry, who welcomed a baby boy, her second child, with fiance Olivier Martinez last month (Oct13).

Love Hewitt explains, "She always looks chic and pulled together which proves that your pregnancy doesn't have to compromise your personal style."
