    "If I was at a dinner party, and somebody was like, 'Oh, my God, you're expecting a baby,' I wouldn't be like, 'God, I can't talk about that. Get away from me, you psycho!' But every instinct in my body wants to protect their privacy for the rest of their lives, as much as I can," she said.

    "I don't want anyone to feel welcome into their existence," she added. "And I feel like that just starts with not including them in this part of my work."

    Jen added that she was "grateful" and "excited" to become a new mom and talked a little about what she enjoys about being married.

    "I really enjoy going to the grocery store with him," she said. "I don't know why, but it fills me with a lot of joy. I think maybe because it's almost a metaphor for marriage. 'Okay, we've got this list. These are the things we need. Let's work together and get this done.'"

    "And I always get one of the cooking magazines, like 15-Minute Healthy Meals, and he always gives me a look like, 'You're not going to use that. When are you going to make that?' And I say, 'Yes, I am. Tuesday!' And he's always right, and I never do."

    As somebody who also does literally anything possible to avoid cooking, I feel this in my bones. Appreciate you, Jen!!
