Jessica Simpson says we weren’t the only ones shocked by her second pregnancy.  The expectant mom dished with Jay Leno about her wedding plans, eating healthy, and how baby #2 took her by surprise.

The Fashion Star mentor laughed about the exciting baby surprise, “Apparently it was a part of God’s plan for my life. 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!”

Jessica said that she won’t be indulging as much this time around.  “I didn’t really make any healthy, good decisions [during the first pregnancy]. The last time I ate everything in sight. I was really happy to be pregnant and I just didn’t even step on the scale. I was the person who turned around and said, ‘Just don’t tell me, I’m having fun. I guess I just didn’t realize you could gain that much weight that quickly. I had fun doing it but once I had Maxwell I realized that it all wasn’t water weight and I had to really work hard. In four months I lost over 50 pounds.”

The bubbly star says her wedding to fiance Eric Johnson will happen…eventually!  She joked, “We’ve had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up. I’m doing it very backwards, I know! I’ll just keep my legs crossed this time.” 

Jessica also announced this week that she’s developing a sitcom loosely based on her own life.  It’s refreshing that she doesn’t take herself too seriously and can have a good laugh – at her own expense!
