On her pregnancy diet:
“I’m hungry all the time. I really am. [Ferguson pulls out a food tray filled with barbeque ribs.] “Oh my god! This is really good! And they’re warm! Would it be really obnoxious if I just grabbed the rib and [chowed down]? I have to say, nothing makes me happier than to see a pregnant woman eat, especially in L.A. I’m just hungry. It feels good. Food just tastes so delicious”
On how she used to be vegetarian:
“For one season, I lost the taste of meat. So I was just having, like, lentils and quinoa. But then there was a bad night where I had a little too much to drink and I ended up at In-N-Out. You trick yourself, working in Hollywood. You trick yourself, going, ‘That burger’s disgusting. That burger’s awful.’ But now that [I’m] pregnant, [I’m] like, ‘I can eat all this together, at the same time. Like, I can have the pickle with the donut, and it would probably be life-changing.’”
On wanting to feel “sexy”:
“People think that they’re not supposed to compliment pregnant women. The best thing a pregnant women can hear is the word ‘sexy.’ It’s like, ‘Oh, you think I’m sexy? Yes! I’m sexy.’ Usually, I’m such an activist for women’s rights and everything. I’m like, ‘Excuse me, do not objectify me,’ or whatever. But now that I’m pregnant, I’m kind of itching for sexy comments, like compliments. Not getting picked up, because my husband will kill you. But like, you know, ‘Your wife is looking really hot.’ We like that.”
… says Zoe, who is 7 months pregnant with twins.
