Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel, former vegetarian Zooey joked about her pregnancy diet and said she would struggle if her food was limited even more.

"You can't eat so many things if you're pregnant! If I was vegan, I'd just be like..." before listing the foods she is missing since getting pregnant. "You can't have sushi, you can't have cheese that tastes good. You can have a little bit [of coffee], but I would have like four cups a day, and now I can have half of a cup which is a total joke.

"You can't have alcohol, I miss that – I love wine!"
