Jessica Simpson stopped by “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Tuesday to talk about her second pregnancy, as well as her newly-announced sitcom.

Asked why she and fiancé Eric Johnson have yet to tie the knot after being engaged for two years, the singer gave an amusingly risqué response.

“We’ve had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up,” said Simpson, adding, “We’re doing it very backwards, I know.”

She then quipped, “I’ll just keep my legs crossed, I guess, this time.”

Simpson said she was “shocked” she got pregnant again after what she jokingly called a “one-night-stand.”

As for her proposed semi-autographical NBC series, Simpson said she and her team are “just now in the process of casting everyone.”

“I will be playing myself, which is pretty easy,” she said, going on to reveal that “we’ll have actors play Eric and my dad [Joe Simpson], so that’ll be funny.”

So, why a TV show?

“There’s lots of things that happen in my life that I’m like, people have to know about this,” explained Simpson.

Simpson also talked about creating a billion-dollar fashion empire.
