A radiant Sara Rue proudly rubbed her baby belly at ABC's fall preview party in Beverly Hills September 11, but the 33-year-old actress hasn't yet embraced all aspects of her pregnancy.
"I'm not quite ready to move onto maternity gear yet," the Diane von Furstenberg-clad star admitted to Us Weekly at The Paley Center for Media.
Due "early next year," the Malibu Country actress said she and husband Kevin Price have yet to learn their child's gender. "We haven't yet, but I think we will find out. I'm way too much of a planner," Rue said. "I've been spending way too much time on Pinterest and Etsy to not find out, you know?"
Either way, Rue and Price are prepared for the arrival of their firstborn. "We have names for boys and girls. We had a girl's name that we really loved, then one of my friends had a baby and named her that name . . . so now we're back to the drawing board. I did say, 'I know it's totally irrational, but I hate her right now!" But then that went away very quickly."
Rue wed Price, a school teacher, in May 2011. The actress was previously married to Mischa Livingstone for four years until they split in 2007.
The actress -- who lost more than 50 pounds as a Jenny Craig spokeswoman in 2009 -- told Us she hasn't "been craving anything in particular" while pregnant. "I'm just really trying to listen to my body. I know this is weird, but I literally had these two giant glasses of milk and I was like, 'OK, I guess I needed calcium.' So when I want ice cream, I need to realize, 'No, I probably need milk,' and not go too crazy."
