Jennie Garth may already have three children ranging from the ages of 16 to 7, but she’s ready to have another — if for no other reason than being pregnant has been some of the best times in her life.

“I love being pregnant, and I love making babies,” Jennie told Us Weekly on April 7. “I love getting fat!”

And who wouldn’t? When you’re creating human life, you get to bend the rules a little on what you eat. Go ahead, have that family sized bag of M&Ms in one sitting. Oh, and you need ice cream? It’s fine. You’re eating for two! Or something like that.

Jennie’s ready to take a fourth spin at pregnancy, but there’s one snag in her plan: Her split from former husband (and Twilight star) Peter Facinelli, means she doesn’t have anyone to provide the other half of the baby equation at the moment. But that doesn’t mean it’ll be that way forever… despite the fact that Jennie has likened dating post-divorce to “torture.”

“I want to do it again, but I need a man for that, so yeah, that’s not gonna happen,” the 41-year-old actress said. “Just bringing a being into this world is crazy wild! It’s like an exchange you can’t compare to any other. It’s like when E.T. connected with Elliot, you know, where they got sick when they were with each other and felt each other’s feelings.”

This may be the first time we’ve ever heard anyone describe pregnancy in terms of E.T., but now that she says it, that kinda makes sense. We probably couldn’t smuggle a baby in the front basket of a bike, though, huh?
