If there is any truth to the old adage that pregnant women crave what their bodies need the most, then Michelle Monaghan is convinced that she’s been "suffering from scurvy for the last 15 years." Whether it’s "grapefruit, cherries, blueberries or bananas," the 32-year-old actress — expecting a baby in late fall — can’t seem to get enough of fruit.

In fact, the situation is so extreme Michelle says the home she shares with husband Peter White "looks like a fruit stand." "I normally never eat fruit," she explained during a Friday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, "but any [fruit] you put in front of me, I’m eating it." When asked whether she’s decided on a name for baby-on-the-way, the couple’s first, Michelle answered no because "[the name] Apple is already taken!"

Michelle’s new film Eagle Eye opens on Friday.

I’m EXACTLY the same! The only major craving I’ve had with this pregnancy is fruit – I just can’t get enough of it, and would be happy to eat nothing else… (though I do of course!). Michelle looks amazing – looking forward to seeing more pregnancy photos of her.
