The actress and Broadway veteran was vocal and effusive throughout her pregnancy, admitting that she craved everything that was off limits.

"I want everything I can't have: Sushi, tuna fish. I was never a sweets person, and now I have to have at least one cookie every day. Lots more sweets than I'm used to," the bubbly blonde said. "I make my husband's coffee in the morning, just so I can stick my face in and smell it before I give it to him, because I gave it up. I know you can have stuff in moderation, but I'm leaving it all behind," she added. "I really want the whole bottle of wine. Like, what's one glass good for?!"
