During her appearance, she joked about what she’s been doing amid the pandemic.

“I hunkered down and baked a lot of bread but I just wanna say I might have baked too much bread or eaten too much bread — you tell me,” she said before showing off her baby bump.

“I don’t know if you can see,” she joked.

“It’s different. I feel different. Um, how have the exact last nine months been? They’ve been real pregnant for me!” she went on to say.

She also talked about her fiance and added that it’s been “very nice to have something that is incredibly positive during a time that’s hard and sad…it’s nice to have, like, a little secret treasure.”

As for how she’s spending her time, Jenny said she’s “basically been chilling out” and “doing exactly what [she has] wanted to do, not having to see anyone or figure out how to gracefully wear pants…I haven’t worn pants in many moons.”

“And just my luck, I moved in with my fiancé, and of course he lives in a very old house that is, I think, most certainly haunted and has an actual pet cemetery. It has been in my fiancé Ben‘s family since the ’30s, I think, so it’s like 90 years of pets,” she said.

“At the beginning of the pandemic, when I was just newly pregnant, I started to go out and visit the pet cemetery every day. And Ben told me I started saying things like, ‘I’m just gonna go outside and visit the pets. That’s how a scary movie starts — a pregnant lady is like, ‘My pets. My precious, precious pets,’” she hilariously noted.

Congratulations to the happy family! Find out who else is expecting…
