There is one thing Katherine Heigl just can't say no to during her pregnancy—sugar.

Yeah, sure, a lot of us have a sweet tooth, but the actress explains that her cravings are on another level while chatting with reporters during the panel for her show Doubt at TCAs. "The sugar thing has been really bad, and I'm not generally a sugar person," the actress admitted.

"I mean, on occasion I'll have dessert, but every day—I mean, if you put a cinnamon roll in front of me, it could get ugly."

But not just cinnamon rolls. Heigl shares that there's one specific delicious treat that has become her kryptonite. "Donuts. I don't know if you've been on sets much but they always have craft service and they have, like, three boxes of donuts every day. I just try to take a bite or two or six."


Katherine Heigl Is Pregnant, Expecting Baby No. 3 With Josh Kelley

Heigl and hubby Josh Kelley, who are already parents to daughters Naleigh, 7, and Adelaide, 4, announced their pregnancy in June. "I feel great! I am very, very grateful, actually, because you never know. I've had a really easy—knock on wood—pregnancy so far. Just tired and hungry," she said during the panel, and explained how different things will be now that a baby boy is entering the family.

"I think Josh is hugely relieved. He's just surrounded by women. It's me, the two girls, we also, my niece, Madison, lives with us in Utah and she's a 14-year-old girl. And then my mom, my mom and I are so close and partners, too, in business, so she's always around. Poor guy. He's literally surrounded by women so I think he's really excited. His brother had a baby last February, a little boy named Lord, and they're already talking about their foursome," she said.

And, of course, Kelley has been doing his best to make sure his ladylove's first pregnancy is going smoothly. "He has been wonderful. The other day I came home to a bouquet of flowers and a really sweet note from the kids that I'm sure he made them write. The other morning he brought me coffee with my breakfast as I was trying to get ready to run to work early. I think he's mostly like what can I do? Because I'm pregnant and hormonal and nothing is good enough."


Hours after making the announcement, Heigl took to her blog, Those Heavenly Days, to share more details with her fans.

"Sooooo….the Kelley family received some very exciting news recently and I've been dying to share it with you all. We are expecting a third addition to our tribe! It was totally unexpected but thrilling non the less. Naleigh and Adalaide are over the moon and can not wait to spoil their new sibling rotten and of course Josh and I are full of high hopes and bubbling anticipation," the former Grey's Anatomy actress wrote.

"The whole pregnancy thing is new to me but the thrill of having a baby is not. We've known for awhile that we wanted to add to our family and frankly didn't really care how we chose to do that. We were considering adoption again, fostering, or pregnancy if possible. Seeing as I have never been pregnant and as my OB/GYN reminded me last year, I'm of advanced maternal age, I wasn't sure pregnancy was even in the cards for us. Turns out it was very much in the cards!"

Aside from pregnancy updates, Heigl also addressed Seth Rogen's recent comments about their film Knocked Up, and the whole controversy that blew up after the film was released nine years ago (don't worry, you can catch up on all that drama here).

"I think that he's handled that so beautifully and I just feel nothing but love and respect. It was so long ago. I just wish him so much goodness and I've felt that from him too," she said.
