Jessica Simpson is due in the spring, “craves cantaloupe like a crazy person”


Jessica Simpson appeared on Access Hollywood last night to talk about her pregnancy. I suppose she had another “real” purpose to appear on the show, but at the end of the day, she just talked about being pregnant and it was cute because she hasn’t said much thus far, so it was good to get some confirmations on things. Here’s the video and some highlights from not only the Access Hollywood interview, but a few other interviews too.

How she feels: “I feel great, I honestly do. Pregnancy is a friend of mine, so everything has been running smoothly. So far, so good – no morning sickness. I feel great. I’m tired, but you know, I’m making a baby here!”

Changes in her body: “[I’ve had] swelling in the belly and boob area.”

She did the pregnancy test without telling Eric: “I did the pregnancy test. I was feeling a little off. [I first told] Eric, of course. He was in the house. He didn’t know that I was taking a pregnancy test, so I kind of shocked him. I came in shaking like, ‘Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! This is happening!’ We both cried. We were in shock and kind of just sat there and stared at each other.”

Due date and wedding plans: “I am having a spring baby. We were going to throw something together [for the wedding], but I’d rather put more time in it and be able to really enjoy the day. When you’re pregnant, your hormones go crazy. I don’t want to be super stressed out and end up being a bridezilla! So, I’ll wait until after. We didn’t even have a (wedding) date nailed down. I’m going to wait until everything is over so I don’t end up being a hormonal bridezilla.”

No more reality show plans: “Letting everybody in on every detail of your life, that’s a hard thing to do. I feel like, for me, those days are over, but I can always be who I am on camera… I’ll always be myself.”

Cravings: She says she no longer likes pizza because it now “tastes sour” – has become obsessed with a particular fruit. “I crave cantaloupe like a crazy person,” Simpson told PEOPLE on Tuesday while promoting a skincare line. “But I put salt all over it, so I don’t know if it’s that healthy. I crave anything salty and sweet. That mixture to me is so good. I can eat a whole cantaloupe in one morning.”

On not announcing her pregnancy right away: “The stomach spoke for itself.”

She sounds good, doesn’t she? She’s not oversharing (for her), she seems content and grounded and she’s not all “MY BABY!!!!!! LOOK AT MY BELLY!!!!” Could it be that Farty has done a lot of growing up? Could it be that Farty is now a mature woman who is ready to be a mom? I say that now, but I’m sure that there will be some uncomfortable, TMI-laden interviews between now and her Spring birth.

    She’s pretty big already, so I’m thinking late February, early March. I hope she has a blonde daughter. I think she’d be fabulous with a little girl. I love being mommy to my little boy, but tutus and big bows look like so much fun!

  2. keri says:

    yikes! wasn’t cantaloupe giving people e-coli?

  3. brin says:

    Changes in her body: “I’ve had swelling in the belly…”. Oh Jess, don’t ever change.

  4. Pyewacket says:

    This is one celeb baby I couldn’t care less about., because Jessica bores me to death.

    She better watch out for Listeria with her cantaloupe cravings.

  5. Bermuda Blues says:

    How is she due in the spring? Spring starts March 23rd.

    Beyonce is due in February, she announced in August. Jessica was already looking heavily pregnant by then. In fact Jessica has looked pregnant since July.

    Michelle Duggar just announced that she’s 3 1/2 months along and she’s due in April.

  6. Marjalane says:

    I hope she knows where her cantaloupe is coming from because people are dying from it where I live! Yikes.

  7. Bite me says:

    Bless her heart

  8. gee says:

    She could be 5 months along and due in March. Makes sence.

  9. Larissa says:

    Just goes out to show size doesnt tell how far along a women is while pregnant.

    Gal is at least six months,leaving four to go (40 wks total)-that’d mean March. She’s so cute.

    Compare and contrast abdomen and process of sitting down with You-know-who’s folding fetus. What a laugh!

  12. Abby says:

    aw she’s so cute. 🙂

  13. DarkEmpress says:

    So many ppl are thinking what I was thinking about her cantaloupe comment. That fruit is going to have to be very very carefully washed.

  14. DesertRose says:

    As far as I know, no listeria cantaloupes here in California. She’s probably buying from Whole Foods or some other organic market so probably no danger there. But yeah, midwest and east coast people, better stay away from them melons :/

    And for some, becoming a mother is the best thing that ever happened to them. They get it together, are great at having patience, can tolerate high pitched-loud voices constantly, and still manage to be on time lol (this is not me btw)

  15. Tierra says:

    Im shocked she’s not due until spring, I was think Jan/Feb based on some of the pics Ive seen.

    I didnt know there were so many issues with cantaloupe, Ill have to do some research on that. Is it just in certain areas or nationwide?

  16. DemoCat says:

    No, no, no – salt on watermelon; pepper on cantaloupe. That’s the way we roll in the DemoCat household!

  17. Nudgie says:

    Good to see her eating healthy. Seems to be the first fruit she’s had since Tony Romo…

  19. kel says:

    Wow – she’s already pretty big to be due in the spring, but she’s very cute.

  20. fwiw says:

    I thought she was due sooner than that because she looks big. It’s interesting, though, because I think Tony Romo’s wife is due around the spring too.

    I’m surprised she didn’t get married as soon as she found out … makes me wonder if she’ll ever marry Eric. Say what you want about Tony Romo but the guy has a high paying job and he works hard. Eric on the other hand, seems lazy because it doesn’t look like he is interested in working. She could have done better.

  21. Sara says:

    she’ll make her way back to the pizza… i’m not worried.

  22. lol says:

    LOve this girl.. so real & self depricating.. she will be a blast to watch through this pregnancy. Im so looing forward & find this is refreshing given the garbage on the K’s that last week.. So much fun

  23. ZenB!tch says:

    She has to be due in winter unless she is having twins. I have a friend who is due in February. Also a tiny, curvy (vs. fat) girl around 30 and they look like they are the same size boob and bellywise. She can barely get out of the chair which had me laughing, my friend still can but she has this little flop thing she does which is adorable – some women (Jess is one of them) are just so cute pregnant. I wish they knew each other although I would have to start a human version of the “too cute” site for them.

    I totally forgot about you-know-who or else I would have fallen out of my chair laughing thinking about the fake tummy.

    @fwiw if she DOESN’T marry Eric then we will know she plays dumb for her show and now her image. Not marrying Eric is the right thing to do. She is 30 years old, she wants to be a mom and she is not doing it alone. If she keeps things as they are she will do great.

    PS: I am normally not a huge fan of hers but I <3 her pregnant.

  24. ZenB!tch says:

    @desertrose I’m in Cali too and I hadn’t heard that. I’m going to have to let my mom and friends know because its a staple around here.

  25. really says:

    Love, love, love, love her! She gives me hope that there is not only idiots (such as beyonce… cough cough)! I really have fallen back in love with Jessica, just merely by how she is handling her pregnancy (like a woman who is in charge, no games, just a beautiful pregnancy!) ………… she will make a super super Mom! Love her!

  26. YaKnow says:

    The size of a belly does not depict how far along someone is in a pregnancy. Women progress at all different speeds. I am super excited that she is pregnant! I love love love her! We have the same birthday and now we are pregnant at the same time…I am also expecting a Spring baby in May! Maybe another shared birthday??? 🙂

  27. Elle says:

    If she hasn’t found out the baby’s sex yet then she must not be 20 weeks (5 months) by the time of this interview. If you have prenatal care your OB should do an anatomy scan at 20 weeks and should be able to determine the sex if you would like. She mentioned in another interview that she doesn’t want to be surprised because she is a planner. So I am betting she is due in April/ early May and is probably 16 weeks in this interview.

  28. whatev says:

    She’s HUGE for 20 weeks. Must be more fat than baby going on there. Another article said she was 5 months recently. Gonna have a hard time losing all that weight…

  29. Heather says:

    I think Jessica will be a great mommy. She has wanted this for a very long time. I truly believe that her and Nick would still be married and would have start a family by now had it not been for that reality show, it destroyed them. I love Jessica no matter what.

  30. LeLe says:

    She is due in April. I’m almost 7 months pregnant and we look about the same size. I’m positive that she’s having a girl as well.
