JUSTIN COIT FOR AMERICAN BABY
The Criminal Minds star, who already has daughter Autumn, 16 months, with her husband Brian Hallisay, spoke about the “gift” of having a second child.
“Pregnancy is magical. I’m grateful,” she told American Baby magazine. “It’s not lost on me what a gift it is to be able to get pregnant.”
During her second pregnancy, the actress, 36, intends to eat healthy but she still wants to give in to some guilty pleasures.
“I’ve been an actress for 25 years, and have had to be hungry at times for my career, so being pregnant is completely freeing,” she said. “When I was expecting Autumn, I ate everything I saw! I told myself, ‘Oh there’s a donut – I should have that.’ Now with this second pregnancy, I know the baby really doesn’t ‘need it.’ So I eat healthy foods in general, but I also indulge in little things that I crave.”
Jennifer also spoke about how her body has changed during her second pregnancy.
“Your body changes so much, and there’s a sensuality about that. I say accentuate the fact that your legs look thinner than they ever have, and your boobs look great: Work it!”
