Pregnancy for Jen - who was last seen on the big screen in the 2011 comedy "Arthur" - doesn't seem to be too much of a burden.

In fact, she says it comes with certain perks.

"I always have cravings. It doesn't matter if I'm pregnant or not! I use pregnancy as an excuse to say I'm craving ice cream and chocolate, but really, that's just me," she joked with Parents magazine while pregnant with Seraphina.
