“I’m not supposed to be on my feet that much, so cooking is tough," the pregnant model continued. "I just get tired! But luckily, I’ve just entered that phase that my belly can’t fit as much food in it, which is great. And John has been rehearsing and he’s going to start fasting soon because he has a shirtless scene.”

Her 39-year-old singer/songwriter husband is apparently going all in on this performance. “He’s taken this role so seriously," she said. "I don’t know how Broadway people do it. It’s all encompassing. I was at rehearsal yesterday and the amount of themselves and work they put it, it’s so much work. I feel like they should do a full run, it’s only one show!"
