Like a lot of expectant women, mom-to-be Jessica Simpson is craving comfort foods. "This week it's peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, toasted," she told Rachael Ray on the Dec. 12 episode. "And then, I'll put some salt on my hand like I'm taking a tequila shot and then take a bite of the sandwich."
The 31-year-old Fashion Star mentor also admitted her emotions are a bit more heightened than usual. "That's the one thing about pregnancy — I'll cry at the drop of a hat," she said. "Even a great souffle would make me cry."
Despite the waterworks, Jessica "really [loves] being pregnant."
"I felt [the baby] move the other day for the first time and I had big crocodile tears," she gushed. "It was the coolest thing ever. It did a flip or something. I was like, 'There it went. It's there. It's really there.'"
Her 3-year-old nephew Bronx (whose parents are exes Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz) has his own predictions for his cousin-to-be. "He rubs my belly. He has guesses," she told Ray. "He said he wants it to be a girl… He thinks it's going to be a girl."
But even if Jessica has a boy, she'll keep some feminine flare into his wardrobe. "I'll just put him in a Tutu," she quipped.
To see Jessica and Ashlee's full appearance on Rachael Ray, tune in Dec. 12.
