It’s amazing what a little pregnancy bump can do.

But as Access Hollywood’s own mother-to-be Nancy O’Dell found out, her baby bump got Jennifer Lopez to talk all about her future, motherhood plans and how well she can keep a secret.

“Hey! I guess this is going to open up the questions right there,” Jennifer said as she rubbed Nancy’s belly.

“Yeah I know,” Nancy smiled.

As it turns out, Jennifer knew about Nancy’s special little addition long before most people did.

“When I got the accessories award that night, she told me and Marc,” Lopez revealed to our cameras, referring to her win at the ACE Awards back in October 2006. “She’s friends with Marc from a few years back.”

“Yeah, and Marc actually said ‘This is kind of a different dress for you… it’s really baggy and loose,’” Nancy laughed.

“And then he came and whispered to me ‘Guess what? Nancy’s pregnant. You can’t say anything’” Jen said.

Luckily, Nancy’s secret was safe with Jennifer, who looked radiant from head to toe in a radiant knee-length Chloe dress with her tousled and wavy when Nancy spoke with her during a press conference to promote her new MTV reality show “DanceLife.”

The show chronicles the ups and downs of making it as a professional dancer — something Lopez has plenty of experience with from her Fly Girls days on “In Living Color.”

“What would you go back and tell the Fly Girl back then that you were? What would you go back and tell her now that you’ve lived your life and become so successful?” Nancy asked.

“Oh, it’s going to be exciting,” she laughed. “Wait ‘til you see.”

And then Nancy reminded J.Lo of a pregnancy promise made long ago.

“I’m not going to ask you the question that everybody’s asking you about the kid. All I want to say as we end this is that I told you first that if it ever does happen, I want to be one of the first ones you guys call,” Nancy smiled.

“OK, I’ll tell Marc,” Jen laughed.

“Here’s the big belly for you,” Nancy joked, rubbing her tummy. “You tell him I’m growing by leaps and bounds.”

“And the button!” Jen added, pointing to Nancy’s pants.

“Jennifer, you’re not supposed to point that out that I unbuttoned my pants,” Nancy cracked up. “Thanks.”

J.Lo’s “DanceLife” debuts January 15 on MTV.
