beauty Quick quiz: do you recognise this woman? Mia Freedman

She’s worked solidly throughout her career and since 2018 she’s been starring in a show called 911 which sounds dramatic and medical adjacent.

And this is what Wiki says about her personal life:

In June 2013, Hewitt announced that she was engaged and expecting her first child with co-star, Brian Hallisay. On November 20, 2013, Hewitt and Hallisay married. Their daughter, Autumn James, was born a few days later in November 2013. In June 2015, the couple had a boy, Atticus James. In September 2021, Hewitt and Hallisay welcomed their third child, a son named Aidan James.
