Jessica Simpson to Leno: Eric 'Keeps Knocking Me Up'
Singer Jessica Simpson stopped by the “Tonight” show on Monday and revealed the real reason she hasn’t married Eric Johnson… she keeps getting pregnant!
"We've had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up," she confessed to Jay Leno. "We're doing it very backwards!"
The Weight Watchers spokeswoman has a new strategy for finally taking that walk down the aisle. She said that next time they set a date, "I'll just keep my legs crossed."
Simpson said that a second pregnancy, just months after having baby Maxwell, was not part of her plan, adding, "Oh no. Apparently it was a part of God's plan for my life."
She continued, "I was extremely shocked. I was shocked because I was going through a lot of hormonal changes, trying to get back to the old, vibrant Jessica. And, you know, it was kind of like a one-night stand. And it happened, all over again!"
The pregnancy hasn’t been easy. The “Fashion Star” judge told Jay, "I've been puking. I've been really, really sick.”
Jessica admitted that Weight Watchers was “as shocked as I was” to find out she was expecting.
Now, she’s looking forward to launching a new NBC sitcom based loosely on her life. Leno asked, "About a girl that keeps getting pregnant?" The 32-year-old replied, "I will be playing myself, which is pretty easy."
