'Crossing Jordan' Star Pregnant

It didn't take a medical examiner to determine that "Crossing Jordan" star Jill Hennessy was pregnant.

The actress appeared at party for Hamptons magazine visibly showing a baby bump and confirmed speculation that she's expecting a child, reports People.

"I don't know what you're talking about. I think it's just too much beer and burritos," she joked, adding, "No, no, no ... I'm almost six months pregnant with a boy."

This will be Hennessy's second child with husband Paolo Mastropietro. They have a son, Marco, soon to be 4. The newcomer, also a boy, is due at the end of the year.

"I'm definitely less worried, much more relaxed about it this time around," says Hennessy. "I'm still dying to meet this little person, but now I've got a pretty good idea about what will happen over the next few months and how uncomfortable I will be, especially if I go past my due date, which I did with Marco."

The actress also has another project in the works for later in the year.

"I'm working on a CD. We should have it done by fall," she says. "I want to get some quality time with this dude, especially in the first few months of lactation, and then maybe even tour. Music is actually what I did before I acted."

Hennessy is best known for her role on "Law & Order" in the '90s and for playing a sassy medical examiner on NBC's "Crossing Jordan." She was last on the big screen playing the wife of Tim Allen's character in "Wild Hogs."
