"I am five months pregnant," the excited actress shared with viewers and co-host JD Roberto (pictured above with Budig). "There have been a couple of Facebook followers that have guessed that, but I had a lot of tests and things to do and I wanted to make sure it was all okay before I said, 'I'm pregnant!' When her co-host, asked her how she's feeling overall, Budig revealed she's actually quite nervous. "I'm nervous. I'm really scared. I don't think there's a perfect parent and you don't know what you're going to get. I'm a lot more nervous than I thought I'd be."
