Appearing on The Tonight Show Tuesday night, the singer/actress confessed to Jay Leno that she didn’t take very good care of herself when she was expecting daughter Maxwell Drew. “I was really happy to be pregnant and I didn’t step on the scale,” she said in the TV interview (as reported by E!).
Craving “everything,” Jessica ate as she pleased without much thought to weight gain. “I didn’t make any healthy good decisions,” she said. Now, things have changed. Having lost most of her baby weight via the Weight Watchers program prior to getting pregnant again, Jessica swears that this time she won’t be indulging in “everything in sight.” (She’ll also rejoin the diet program once the baby is born.)
On the show, Jess appeared in a low-cut leopard-print maternity dress similar to one she wore last year. Although her baby bump was very visible, the rest of her body looked slender and fit.
She admitted that she didn’t plan on having another baby so soon; she and fiance Eric Johnson postponed their wedding plans twice because of the pregnancies. But, she added, “Apparently it was a part of God’s plan for my life” to be a mother twice in two years.
Jessica also discussed the new sitcom she’ll be filming soon, in which she’ll star as (surprise!) a woman juggling motherhood and celebrity. “I’ll be playing myself, which is pretty easy,” she says.
How do you think Jessica looks this time around?
