White Collar star Tiffani Thiessen, 36, showed off her baby bump for the first time on the red carpet Thursday night.
"I'd much rather be home at in my slippers, but you know, it's fun to get dressed up every now and then too," the mom-to-be — who donned a chic, fitted black dress — joked to UsMagazine.com at the USA Network and Vanity Fair fete in NYC.
Of being pregnant, which she announced last November, Thiessen told Us, "I think it's just a new adventure. I always wanted to be a mom. My husband's really excited, and so am I!" (She wed actor-artist Brady Smith in 2005.)
Thiessen says she's staying in shape by "doing a lot of yoga, weight training" and hiking a few miles three times a week.
The one thing she hasn't been so good about: sticking to her no-meat diet.
"Sadly I was a vegetarian for so many years, and I’ve been craving meat. I hate it, but I need it!" she admitted to Us. "I feel badly because I’m such a huge supporter of not doing that, but I guess this little one is wanting a lot of red meat so…."
Besides starring in her USA show, Thiessen is hard at work on another project: "I am developing a baby furniture company," she told Us.
She's more tight-lipped about the sex of the baby ("We're not telling!") and its name ("We have some in mind… but we're not sharing!").
One thing's for sure: When asked by Us if she'd like the baby to go into acting, Thiessen said, "Oh God, I hope not!"
