He is the great-grandson of electrical engineer Frank Conrad.
Born in Texas to Patricia, a speech therapist, and Herbert, a medical technician, the young Jennifer (Love is her middle name) was a natural performer.After she won the Texas Our Little Miss Talent competition the family - Jennifer, her by now divorced mother and her elder brother Todd - moved to Los Angeles, where Jennifer got her first break, aged ten, presenting on the Disney channel.There are quite a few - oddly connected - reasons why Jennifer Love Hewitt is walking tall these days. Today she is wearing a pair of slightly scary Louboutins that push her tiny 5ft 21/2 in frame to a disproportionately lofty height.They were a gift, she says with a sheepish smile, from her boyfriend Jamie Kennedy who is one of the other reasons why she is feeling so, well, elevated right now.Conrad made his feature film debut with a small role in the 1994 film Under Heat.
In 1996, he won a role as Leo Roth on the television series Relativity; however, he was already committed to a Pittsburgh production of the Tom Stoppard play Arcadia.

At the time, he had caught his big break starring in ABC’s Relativity opposite Kimberly Williams, yet despite his success in Hollywood, was attending a Halloween costume party benefiting a local arts organization here in Pittsburgh. It took 13 years, but I did finally get to do that when I had lunch with him at The Common Plea two years ago.
In the early 1980s, he transferred as a sophomore from Swissvale High School to The Kiski School, an all-boys preparatory school in Saltsburg, Pennsylvania, on a scholarship.
He studied history at Brown University, and began acting while he was there.
