Alison Sweeney is excited to be fat.
The Days of Our Lives star is pregnant, of course, so it doesn't really count. That's why she's looking forward to packing on the ounds.
"It's really the only time in your life that you're supposed to gain weight," Sweeney told People magazine at Tuesday's auction of celeb-donated jeans for Clothes Off Our Back, which benefits children's charities. "They say that you're eating for two, but you have to remember that one of the two is only five ounces. It's not the same."
Initially, during her second pregnancy, gaining weight was the last thing on her mind.
"I was really morning sick," the actress said. "It was brutal. I would order my favorite things from restaurants, and I would get it and say, 'Get that thing away from me.' Grilled chicken or tomatoes would be the worst. I would tell my husband to get it away from me."
