Jenna Dewan’s ‘Terrible’ Pregnancy Cravings

Jenna Dewan’s ‘Terrible’ Pregnancy Cravings


This is so nice. It’s so nice. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Finally meeting
you, I’m so happy. I know. We’ve never met. And you’ve been in a
movie with Helen Mirren, and you’ve never met her. And I was in Monsters
University with her, and I never met
her until today– makes two of us. Oh, that is so funny. I know, I’ve been bragging I’m
in a movie with Helen Mirren, I’ve never met her. That’s so funny. What’s the movie? Berlin, I Love You. That’s right. Yes. I love you too. Oh, I love you. So congratulations. You just announced
that you’re pregnant? Thank you. I did, yes. Thank you. Thank you so much. Same. So how are you feeling,
how are you feeling? Any cravings– I’m good. –and all that? Yeah, I have– yes. I am craving, unfortunately
for me, nothing but junk food. All I want is, like,
7-Eleven Slurpees or Cheetos. I mean, terrible– and
I’m a super-healthy eater. I love eating healthy,
vegetarian and all this stuff. And now I’m, like,
give me anything. Like, chips– like, it’s so bad. Do you drive in the middle
of the night just to go– No. I’m constantly, like,
24/7, I’m curbing. I mean, I’m not letting myself
drink Slurpes’s every day. But, you know, it’s
there, and I’m, like, ooh. That’s all I want. What if your baby
inside just had a straw? And anytime you had your
Slurpee it was just, like– I know. It was, like– at one
point, I was, like, maybe the baby just wants this. I love that. And you already have a
six-year-old daughter, gorgeous daughter. Yes. And is she excited
to be a big sister? She is so thrilled. We told her the news, and I knew
she’d be happy because she’s been asking for this. But as soon as she found
out, she started crying. She was– this is the
best day of my life. Oh, really? Yeah, but she loves– this is something I have
to work on with her. Everywhere we go, she
pulls up my shirt. So everywhere we go,
she’ll be, like, there’s a baby in this belly! And I’m, like, um, you know. And then she’s, like,
don’t you want to touch it? And they’re, like,
no, we’re good. You know what I mean–
to like every single– Oh, my God. –person. She’s so proud. Flashing everybody. And tell me your six-year-old
daughter’s name again. Everly. Everly. And what is she into? Well, right now we’re trying to
figure out Halloween costumes. So every year it’s
a constant– like, every day we change our minds. We go from– we wanted to
be Mal from Descendants. Then we wanted to be– she wanted to be a ghost. So we’ve settled on– I think, this year– yeah, see. We do costume changes. We can’t just do one
look, so we have two. She’s very dramatic,
so she needs two looks. She was born with a
heart over her face. That’s amazing. Yeah. We let her decide when she
wants to be on social media. But she wants to be an
angel and a peacock. So we’ve settled. Wait, she’s gonna be
both at the same time? Like, an angel peacock? During the day, she’s an angel. And at night, she’s a peacock. Same. Dramatic. Yeah, exactly. Amazing. And now, this is exciting. You’re making a movie
based on Magic Michelle. Yes. So Ellen– Because of the
sketch here, yeah. Ellen has– I call
her my little angel. She’s, like, completely
transformed my life many times. But we did a skit
here, Magic Michelle. It was hilarious. She called me the night before
and said, hey, can you do this? And I called up Chrissy
Teigen, and I called up Olivia, and we stripped. Yeah, I taught Ellen stripper
moves, which was super fun. That was so funny. Halfway through that skit– Look at that. And Oprah! Not really. It’s the closest
I’ve been to Oprah. I was, like, Oprah was in this. She said, let’s make a movie. And I said, that’s a great idea. And then all of a sudden, we
sold it to Warner Brothers. And I started a
production company of women-driven material. When do you sleep? I don’t sleep, period. I’m a mom. We don’t sleep– I mean it’s amazing. –ever. You’re doing so much. And then this. Yes, my book’s– Not only will I do a
movie and rule the world, but I’ll also write
a book about it. Tell us about the book. This was really fun for me. I had never written anything. They called me, and I
started it as a poetry book. But it ended up being– it’s a lifestyle book. One of my biggest
passions, and something that’s always been important me,
is my connection to something greater than me. It’s, like, my
total hippie self. I love that. I love crystals. I’m always wearing them. Tell me about crystals. I love them. I have some friends that– I have no idea. They just look like– oh, that’s
a beautiful pet rock ocean. Yeah, exactly. They’re beautiful. But to me, there’s
different properties for different crystals. And you can use them and
place them on your body and in your room
in different areas. But I like to wear them
to the airport a lot. I put them in my pockets. And I, like, put
them on my purse, and I go through security. And half the time, they stop
me, and they’re, like, ma’am– what’s in your pockets? And I’m, like, oh, hold on. So I’m pulling out 10 crystals. Unbelievable. It helps me feel,
you know, grounded or whatever it is on a plane. I love that. And I love that
you took the time to just really sit
down and do it. It’s amazing. Jenna’s book, Gracefully You:
Finding Beauty and Balance in the Everyday, is
available Tuesday. And today, you’re all going
home with a copy of it. We’ll be right back.
