Jessica Simpson, 31, sat down with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show on Monday to promote her new reality TV show Fashion Star which debuts tonight on NBC. The mom-to-be also chatted about the joys of pregnancy: waddling, sweating, and labor.
“No it’s not twins, I know it looks like it,” Jess said after Jay’s introduction. “She’s about to have a baby at any minute,” he said. “Not quite yet, we have some time,” Jess revealed. Sporting a black dress, an animal print cardigan and a pair of sky-high heels, Jessica said, “It’s a tough thing here and I’m wearing six inch heels, it’s a lot of weight to carry on six inches.”
Labor is really going to hurt,” she said after revealing she’s been experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions. “I have so much respect for my mom and all the women across the world.”
Jay joked about how long it took the blonde beauty to get to her seat, saying he thought maybe she was giving birth backstage. But the Fashion Star mentor took the teasing in stride.
“We’re waddling now,”she said. She added that sweating has also become a problem. “I was sweating my butt off. I had major swamp ass,” she joked.
And she revealed her latest craving for “slutty brownies.”
They are a three layer desert which include a layer of cookie dough and a layer of oreo cookie too.” When asked about the naughty name, she said, “I don’t know I guess a lot goes into them I guess.”
The expectant star also shared with Leno her shock and excitement when she found out she was expecting.
“We weren’t trying, but we were definitely practicing — and not safely practicing,” she said.
Jess and Eric Johnson became engaged when they learned a baby was on the way, and have since put their wedding on hold until their baby girl arrives.
I want him to be my husband so bad, and I do still want to wear the pretty gown and everything, and I have to wait until after the baby,” she said. “And now [our daughter will] just be in the wedding!”
