Jay joked, "She's about to have a baby at any minute." In fact, despite looking like she's due to give birth very soon, Jessica wore a fitted black dress and leopard-print cardigan.
In addition to telling the late-night comic that "labor is really going to hurt," she referenced a newfound respect for mothers.
"I have so much respect for my mom and all the women across the world. It's a tough thing here and I'm wearing six-inch heels. It's a lot of weight to carry on six inches."
