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.

Jenny Slate Accidentally Invited a Random Stranger To Her Wedding

Jenny Slate opened up about her postponed wedding during an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and she revealed that she accidentally invited a random stranger to the event!

The 38-year-old actress is engaged to Ben Shattuck and they were planning on getting married at their house back in June, but the wedding has been postponed due to the pandemic.

Jenny and Ben decided to do email invites instead of paper ones, but she accidentally messed up one of the emails.

“I sent the email, and then I didn’t hear back from friend. I was like, ‘Hey, can you guys come to the wedding?’ And she was like, ‘Oh, we just thought maybe it was small and we weren’t invited. I was like, ‘No, you’re invited. Oh gosh, you know, check your spam.’ And then she was like, ‘Not in the spam.’ And when I looked back, I had messed up the name on the email by one letter,” she said.

Jenny added, “I’m not trying to assume that this lady is a fan or knows who I am, but if she does, she knows where I live and that we were going to get married at our house and blah blah blah. And then we sent a thing saying ‘Sorry, everybody! We’re not getting married.’ But I didn’t send it to her because I just felt so awkward about it.”

Jenny looked up the stranger and found that she likes to wear top hats in some of her pictures. She added, “So, on the day that we were supposed to get married, because I knew she hadn’t received the ‘sorry we’re not getting married anymore,’ I had this, like, weird fantasy she would show up.”
