It's been less than one month since Top Chef Masters head critic Gail Simmons revealed she's pregnant with her first child.

So how are she and her husband Jeremy Abrams faring so far?

"We are overjoyed, super happy and excited!" she tells the Dish. "We can't wait to meet the little peanut! I feel great so far and my belly bump is growing bigger every day, especially after a meal."

As for her cravings, Simmons reveals she hasn't had any out-of-the-ordinary ones. "I was craving a lot of peanut butter and jelly in the first few months," she says, "but the most constant craving I have is cold fresh fruit (watermelon, peaches, apples!)."

She's also taken a liking to cooling down with cold treats—especially while filming the show's latest season in the stifling New Orleans heat.

"Most of all, [I've liked eating] fruit flavored popsicles!" she says. "As summer has been so hot (and shooting in New Orleans was stifling), that is all I've wanted to eat."
