We got to give Ciara props: The singer totally nailed her first major red carpet since announcing her pregnancy.

But as effortless and comfortable as the expecting star looked, she says there was a lot of work behind the scenes. "Three to four fittings is necessary," the newly engaged star shared with E!'s own Giuliana Rancic "My good friend Peter Dundas at Emilio Pucci did this for me and it was so sweet because I had, like, three fittings, one in Milan, and he had to do a sample dress, like, all kind of fun things to make it happen, but its really cool because you kind of have a special moment like, 'Wow this is really happening.""

Tweaking in tailoring isn't the only big change recently. She's also been dealing with major cravings, naturally.

"It's not one particular thing, I just have a habit of eating the same thing over and over and over," she said. "So if I have a barbecue chicken salad, I'll do it every day of the week."

As for the advantages of rocking a baby bump on the red carpet, well, that also has to do with food: "I ate a club sandwich with french fries before I came—and I love not having to worry about that," she said, adding: "The bigger the belly the better!"

We think she just created a motto for expecting women everywhere!

So what's next for the Degree spokesmodel? She will be performing at the official Grammys afterparty.
