Jessica Simpson appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night, and she looked incredible.  After gaining more than 50 pounds during her first pregnancy (not water weight, as she discovered), then losing it within four months with Weight Watchers, Simpson has learned a thing or two the second time around.

“I didn’t really make any healthy, good decisions,” Simpson told Leno of round one with 8-month-old daughter, Maxwell Drew Johnson.

“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.’”

Baby #2 is giving Simpson a harder time, and she’s not giving into as many craving as last time. 

“I’ve been really, really sick so I can’t wait to actually be able to crave something like I did in my first pregnancy,” Simpson told Leno. “I’m due in the summer so I still have a ways to go — hopefully I start feeling better.”

What about marrying that gorgeous Masshole, Eric Johnson?

“We’ve had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up,” Simpson joked. “I’m doing it very backwards, I know! I’ll just keep my legs crossed this time.”

Simpson is also developing a sitcom for NBC, based loosely on her life.

“I will be playing myself, which is pretty easy.  There are lots of things that happen in my life that I’m like, ‘People have to know about this.'”

“All the embarrassing things that happen behind closed doors, I always wish that they were filmed.”

Actors will play her fiance and papa Joe Simpson.
