Jenna Fischer: On Plot Twists and Cellulite
Jenna Fischer’s baby bump is more than just a little obvious. So how is her pregnancy going to play out in the new season of The Office?
Jenna tells New York Magazine, “Pam and Jim snuck away last season on Valentine’s Day, and they had sex. The story is that they conceived this baby at that time and were keeping it a secret until we come back from the summer.”
Interesting enough, this turn of events was actually planned before Fischer found out that she was really pregnant. She talks about the interesting coincidence, “When we started shooting that episode, I thought to myself, ‘If everything goes well, this is going to be a very, very convenient coincidence.’” And what happened next? “I think I found out I was pregnant when we were shooting that episode.”
So how is the pregnant mom-to-be doing? Jenna tells E!, “I’ve been really lucky. I’ve had a really easy pregnancy.” She quickly added, “Before all the pregnant women at home get mad at me for saying that, I just want them to know that while I did not have morning sickness, I have plenty of cellulite, and it’s okay. I’ve been cursed in other ways.”
As for us, we can’t wait to see Jenna’s (and Pam’s) baby!
