"I've learned that sometimes love is not enough," she told the mag about how they'll keep their marriage healthy. "You can have a soul mate and be madly in love with that person, but it's not necessarily enough. I think you have to have personalities that mesh well. You have to be the yin to their yang. You also have to be open to figuring things out together and communicating even when it's the last thing you want to do."
Definitely all great advice, but it was the sexy secret that Jess dropped next that made some jaws drop. "I have to admit, it doesn't hurt that Eric is one of the hottest men I've ever seen and he looks amazing naked!"
Whoa! More than we needed to know!
Jessica also opened up about how she handled the media scrutiny about her pregnancy weight gain.
"I never listen to it, no matter who the press talks about when they're pregnant. It's ridiculous and unfair," she explained. "I think any woman who is pregnant and creating a life is pretty much entitled to eat whatever she wants as long as she's healthy. I wasn't going to let the media take away from what was one of the happiest times in my life."
We're glad to hear she has such a healthy attitude and can put it all in perspective.
Whether she minded or not, Jessica has already shed those pregnancy pounds and looks absolutely amazing...although we have never seen her look any other way!
