Thank you. I love that dress. Thanks. You are the cutest pregnant woman ever. I'm trying. Thanks guys. You can barely -- I'm barely fitting in this dress. You can barely tell. Congratulations. Thank you. This is your second baby. Yes. Did you tell Evie? Your daughter. Yes. She is so excited. She's almost like way too excited. She tells everybody. I mean everybody. Anybody walking down the street. Anybody in a store. She's like did you know I'm going to be the big sister? She's so happy. She's going to be the best little mama ever. It's a good age difference. She'll be a helper. She's what, 6? 6. Mine were very different. Is this pregnancy different? Totally different. I was sick a lot in the beginning. With Evie not at all. You know the nauseous 24/7. It's not morning sickness. It's all day sickness. A man created that term. I was only good in the morning. I'm like I'm good in the morning and then I'm green. That's the worst. I'm good now. Little more tired this time. Did you eat anything to help you through it? I have to eat like every hour and a half. Me too. See, you understand. I understand. I'm not pregnant though. We don't know yet. You might be. You get real hangry. We wanted to get a gift for Everly and the new baby. That's so sweet. This is for Everly. She's going to love this. That's her t-shirt. That is adorable. This is for the baby. You can fill in the blank for everybody after. We got little tags. That's so cute. You can put brother or sister on it. Oh, my god. Adorable. I will absolutely take this picture. Which is it? I'm not going to tell you guys. I have to keep some secrets to myself. I have to have something that I'm only excited about. Healthy, good, that's all that matters. Exactly. In the midst of this time of working and getting ready to have a baby, you took time to write a book. Yeah. "Gracefully you" is the name of the book. You talk about finding beauty and balance in your life while going through so much turmoil, if you want to call it that. Yeah. Tell us about the book. It was funny. The book came on and they said you can write whatever you want to write. Initially it was a poetry book because I love poetry in this spiritual side of myself. Of course I had a crazy couple years. A lot of change and challenges. By doing that I had a lot of people come up to me and say how are you handling this, how are you finding balance, how are you doing this and being a mom and acting? I started to think what are we if we're not here on this planet except to live our truth and tell our story and hopefully maybe inspire somebody and help another person. So I added personal guidance to how I personally connect and find balance during really challenging grief moments in life. Then I added my hippy side which is I love my crystals. I love creating space and meditating. It became this book of a lot of things that I'm real excited about. I think grace is the most -- we named our daughter -- that's her middle name. I think grace is the most beautiful virtue in a woman. Who taught you grace? My grandmother was really graceful. My mom is full of light. She's like a pure beam of light. My grandmother had a lot of hardships. I watched her rise above a lot and find the deeper meaning. For me it was really important to -- when stuff happens, just go why is this happening and can I learn from this and to sort of grow yourself rather than make it all about the situation. It's like, all right, things happen for a reason. Let's try and get to the other side of this a better more joyful person. That was my intention. I really did it. I'm so happy. I'm in a great place. It was a wonderful time to know when you're in a moment of hardship or grief, the other side is really good. Anything in particular in the book that you talk about that people will most take from, they'll say oh, my gosh I related to that the most? I think in general -- it's like -- whether it's a separation or you lose a loved one or anything that creates grief in your life, I think finding somebody who went through that as well who also kind of fell into the pain and went through it and came out on the other side -- And publicly. Yeah. Takes a lot of courage. That's a whole other element. I had people come up to me and say thank you that gave me inspiration. In grief knowing someone survived it and found their happy normal is all you need to hear. Happy better. That's what was cool to me. Happy better, I like that. Absolutely. Jenna, thank you so much. Congratulations. Please send us the picture. This is so cute.
