Jessica Simpson will star in her own sitcom

Jessica Simpson has admitted she's tried to marry her fiance twice - but pregnancy keeps getting in the way.

The actress and singer, who has announced plans for a TV show based on her life, has been engaged for two years to Eric Johnson.

"We've had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up," Jessica, who is expecting her second child, told The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

"We're doing it very backwards, I know... I'll just keep my legs crossed, I guess, this time."

Jessica, 32, is set to play herself in an, as yet, untitled NBC sitcom - with actors playing her dad and Eric.

She said: "It's loosely based on my life... I will be playing myself which is pretty easy.

"There are lots of things that happen in my life that people have to know about."

The reality TV star told The Hollywood Reporter: "I often find myself thinking that no-one could ever make up the things that actually happen in my life - so between the real-life elements and a great team of writers, I think we'll have people laughing!" .

Jessica and ex-husband Nick Lachey previously starred in MTV reality show Newlyweds: Nick And Jessica, which ran for three seasons from 2003 to 2005.
