Jessica Simpson says she’s having a 10-lb girl, plans for “non-traditional” name

Jessica Simpson is going to cover the April issue of Elle Magazine, I think. Elle hasn’t released their cover or anything, but Page Six has a preview of Jessica’s interview. This will be the first major magazine interview Jessica has given during her pregnancy, I believe. It’s interesting that she waited until she was so far along, and it’s interesting that she waited until she had something to promote (other than her pregnancy). She’s promoting Fashion Star, of course, where she acts as the Tim Gunn-like mentor to young designers. We’ll see how that works out. Anyway, in Page Six’s preview, Jessica confirms to Elle that she’s having a girl!!! And she confirms that her girl will be one big baby.

Jessica Simpson has confirmed she’s having a baby girl and says her impending bundle of joy is expected to weigh in at a healthy 10 pounds. The reality-star-turned-fashion mogul further reveals in Elle’s April issue that she and fiancé Eric Johnson have already picked out a “nontraditional” name.

“We’re sure,” Simpson said of the choice without revealing the name. “We’re embroidering it on things.”

She says the name is “nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary… When people hear it, they’ll know . . . why.”

And it won’t be “Chicken of the Sea” after her most famous line from “Newlyweds.” According to Elle, Simpson’s moved beyond her days as a reality TV ditz to a “billion-dollar-per-year business” with her Jessica Simpson Collection, as well as star of NBC’s “Fashion Star.” The mag says TV exec Ben Silverman is developing a sitcom for her.

She also reveals that she initially found it difficult to wrap her head around abstaining from top-shelf whiskey while pregnant. “Givin’ up my Scotch? My Macallan 18? That was hard for me! . . . Though now . . . being pregnant. You crave other things. A big thing of water sounds great!”

LMAO. I kind of love her for talking about how difficult it was for her to give up drinking. Ten bucks says she starts drinking again when she’s breast-feeding. Seriously. That baby girl is going to be drinking White Russians every night. As for the 10-pound baby girl… well, obviously. I never really thought Jessica was carrying twins, I just thought she was carrying really big, because that’s her body type and that’s who she is. She was always going to look this big while pregnant. And considering the 10-pound-baby… well, I really hope she does go in for the C-section. I don’t want 10 pounds of anything coming out of my vadge, which is probably how Jessica feels too. Allegedly, she’s due later this month. God knows, though. Poor Jess.

UPDATE: Here’s the Elle Mag cover!

    She has been pregnant forever !

  2. Bite me says:

    I read somewhere that she posed nude for the magazine

  3. brin says:

    If not Chicken of the Sea, how about Butterball? At least it would be a cute nickname.

  4. Zelda says:

    Just googled it and her hometown is Abilene. Texas.

    My money is on “Abilene.” And they’ll call her “Abby”. You heard it here first.

  5. Gia says:

    When I see pregnant Jessica, I get really pissed all over again at Beyonce. Take note Bey…this is what pregnant woman looks like. AS IF she wouldn’t have blown up this big or bigger of she was really pregnant. Grrrr

    • jc126 says:

      I think you’re 100% right!

      I bet Jessica will name the kid Dallas or Austin, something Texas-related (don’t know what part of TX she’s from). SHe won’t necessarily need a C section.

    • BlackMamba says:

      I will be exactly 6 months along tomorrow and I am only like a quarter of her size and I work with this girl who is almost 8 months and she is only half of Jessica`s size all this to say that Beysus not getting as big as Jessica does not mean she faked her pregnancy and not all pregnant women get that big in fact Jess in one of the biggest I’ve seen.

      • Samigirl says:

        I’m 30 weeks tomorrow, and I’m not nearly as large as Jess. I’ve gained 11 pounds (weight is yo-yoing like crazy). We are carrying similarly, though. Very very low. My sister gained 8 pounds in her pregnancy, gave birth to an 8 1/2 pound child. She barely looked like she had a large meal.

        And I agree, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a woman carrying 1 child that is as big as Jess.

      • Cletus says:

        I was effin HUGE, like this poor gal. And my baby was nearly 10 pounds. And I did not have the c-section. dude, it was so bad.

    • mln76 says:

      OH i wish everyone would STFU already. Not everyone has the same body type. Not everyone carries the same way. I don’t see how what Jessica looks like has anything to do with Beyonce.

      Still I have to say congrats to Jess and I can’t wait to hear the name she gives to her baby girl.

      • Samigirl says:

        THANK YOU. If I hear ONE MORE PERSON say, “her boobs didn’t grow,” “her nose isn’t bigger,” or anything of the like, I may scream. My breasts are STILL a friggin B cup and my nose is still tiny, and literally the only thing that’s increased is belly size. Not all pregnant women are created equal!

      • mln76 says:

        In my family no one shows until the 9th month and we are all big boned women like Beyonce. I’m not a fan of the woman and I disagree with a lot of the way she handled the press and the way they took over Lenox Hill Hospital but I do think she was pregnant.

      • HadleyB says:

        We know everyone carries differently but with Beyonce the fact is the girl had heft. She had to do a strict diet of liquid to lose weight for a role. Then gained it all back in a week right after. She could eat a burger and gain weight a dress size, she talked about how HARD it was to lose weight, keep it off , buying jeans a size too small to give her motivation to lose weight etc.

        This wasn’t a person with will power like Vicky B, or small boned, or someone who didn’t show weight gain easily she DID, she had big thights, butt, round face etc .. just because she tall doesnt mean anything, she wasnt lean like a model.. she didnt have the body type to only be a belly pregnancy..

        thats why people keep bringing it up.. because it was so obvious. … her last week of pregnancy she could run in 5 inch heels and jump? her feet didnt retain any water? all the women I know their feet were so swollen they could barely fit into slippers, even ones that only had “belly ” pregnancies and were tiny over all….and medical fact is cartilage spreads to make way for delivery.. I didn’t see any spreading in Beyonce in her face or hips…

      • Gia says:

        Beyonce is a big girl…I still stand by the opinion that there is NO WAY she wouldn’t have blown UP if she was really pregnant. I just had a baby and only gained about 15 lbs (not including baby weight) so its not like I think everyone had to be massive when they’re pregnant, I just don’t think that someone with Bey’s build would carry as small as she did.

    • rachel says:

      Wow beyonce has a hold over your emotions like that?

    • JessSaysNo says:

      Most people don’t understand that at 6 months and even 30 weeks, you’re not going to look like Jessica does, not even close. She is probably like 37 weeks along by now. If she’s due in late march then she’s def. already 37 weeks. Those last 5-7 weeks make you HUGE…the baby is gaining lots of fat and that’s why you look ENORMOUS. 30 weeks is still a cute belly!

      Good Lord– I have seen morbidly obese pregnant ladies… LOTS of them and no one says anything when they eat their double cheeseburgers. But if Jessica Simpson looks a little chunky at nearly full-term everyone needs to talk shit? STFU!

      • Moneypenny424 says:

        I’m 37 weeks and I’m not nearly as big as Jessica either. Everyone looks different in their pregnancies. My coworker is 39 weeks and is tiny–not everyone is as big as Jessica and yes, you can be Beyonce’s size and actually be pregnant.

      • MsCatra says:

        I’m pregnant with my first at age 32, 36 weeks along, am 5’1″, went from a 32DD to a 34G/H, have gained about 35 pounds (pretty much all in my belly and boobs, which is how I gain weight, too), and I’m nowhere near her size. My nose is the same, and my feet and ankles are only slightly bigger. Only my DH and I can tell, my doc commented at my appointment today that my ankles are still so skinny. Everyone is different.

        Forgot to add, I also wore 4″ wedges (which, granted, are easier than heels) today with absolutely no problem.

      • Cait says:

        My daughter was born in November at 36 weeks – and she was eight pounds (she’d have supposedly been 12 lbs. at term, God help me). I’m 5’2, and gained about 25 lbs. during my pregnancy.

        Every woman gains differently. Every woman’s body shifts around uniquely, too. And every woman has her own comfort level with shoes, clothes, etc. while pregnant.

        Preggos gonna preg, if you will.

        P.S. I had a normal delivery – but jeez, had Livvy been a couple of weeks later, it’d have been a C-section for me. I don’t envy Jessica right now.

    • Playlist says:

      When I saw Jessica’s nude front page pic I thought “Now that’s a real pregnancy”! You know Beyonce would have done a cover like that had she really been pregnant.

      I’m guessing the baby girl’s name will be Erica. Cross between Eric and Jessica.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        That’s one of the big reasons I don’t think she was pregnant. Fameho like B would have had a million naked bomb pics! You know it.
        Plus, she wasn’t even big 3 days prior to birthing her pillow.

        Jess’s cover looks like it was taken a while ago, she is so much bigger now. I feel for her, I was huge and my second was almost 9 pounds.

    • Jaye says:

      I really wish people would let the Beyonce thing go. Not every pregnant woman carries the same. Jennifer Garner wasn’t as big as Jessica Simpson. Besides, the baby is here…it doesn’t matter how she got here. Get over it already.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      I’m still holding a grudge against Katie Holmes! She never put a hand on her belly because it was a pillow. We know she’s a liar because she faked the marathon. She faked Suri, too. THIS is pregnant!!!

  6. Skinnybetch says:

    She always seems so nice and lovable. I think she’ll be a great mommy.

    • Carolyn says:

      Based soley on seeing her on tv and the endless articles she’s quoted me Jess doesn’t seem mature enough to be a mum. Of course her PR-created personna may be nothing like how she actually is in real life. I hope some mothering instincts kick in and her family and husband give her the support a first-time mum needs. There’s nothing like a baby who won’t settle at night to give a huge dose of reality. Being pregnant, enjoying being pregnant and eating everything in sight doesn’t prepare you for first-time motherhood. I hope all goes well. I hope her husband actually puts in and helps her. Considering she’s used to having everything done for her and just looking after herself she could be a candidate for post natal depression if she doesn’t find some coping skills fast once the baby is born. Please don’t tell me her emphasis will be on losing baby weight due to the Jenny Craig contract.

  7. Agnes says:

    i love jessica pregnant. she should get pregnant asap again. haha

  8. spitfire says:

    This…is how Beyonce should’ve looked like, albeit slightly smaller to account for her “active” lifestyle as a singer/dancer/clubber/liar. No one who’s had a miscarriage (as Bey) would have tottered along on those massive heels till she supposedly gave birth.

    And yes, I know, women all show pregnancy in a million different ways but no way, no way was Bey pregnant and looked like she did considering her thick built, no matter how active she had been or remained active, throughout her pregnancy. And looking at Jessica – need one say more?

    • bella says:

      I bumped into Jessica Simpson in November in NYC. She was with Eric and another couple. They had just come out of a store and I nearly walked straight into Jessica. She is just a doll! She is so tiny…my husband said that he could fit her in his pocket. She was very pregnant, even then. I don’t think Beyonce was ever pregnant. I do think that she put weight on – look at her face, chest and legs – but that may have been to help with her pregnancy “story.” That video of her sitting with a folding pregnant belly says it all.

    • SHEDA says:

      yes do look at jessica in her high ass heels. if your gonna do a comparison don’t bring in shoes.

    • Christelle says:

      This is so ridiculous. A woman ran a marathon pregnant, why can’t Beyonce dance in heels? Not everyone is built the same. Some people become massive some don’t. Unless you are an expert in the predicting how women will carry based on their genetic profiles, then I would refrain from saying these things. Not all women get JS big. Embrace pregnancy diversity!

      • bella says:

        Agreed – everyone does carry differently. I’m not comparing how Jessica is carrying to how Beyonce carried. BUT…have you seen the video of the interview Beyonce gave when her entire stomach folds as she sits down in a chair? It is so obvious that she was wearing a prosthetic pregnancy pillow. I don’t believe that she was ever pregnant. If she was, then she padded herself to appear larger. And, she seems to have given birth in record time. No way was she “pregnant” for 9 months. Something is strange there…very strange…

  9. Sammi says:

    I think she looks so big because she is short waisted and short. my best friend has a similar body type of Jessica before Jessica got pregnant (not her dukes of hazzard body lol) and she carried the same way. People need to stop calling Pregnant women fat….seriously…that is the one time in a woman’s life where she is untouchable in my eyes as far as looks go.

    • Awkward Yellow Balloon says:

      Agree, Jessica only looks “very huge” when she is pictured alone. Next to her boyfriend her belly looks pretty normal in size and she looks petitte :)

      BTW, my mom used to look very “huge” during all her pregnancies as well.

  10. Evelaine says:

    My guess for the name…..Jerrica..hmm

  11. Anastasia says:

    Each boob is bigger than her whole head.

    I feel for her–I had a nine pound girl after 35 hours of unmedicated labor and an unmedicated vaginal delivery. It was tough, but we both made it (she’s 17 now).

    But girlfriend needs to lay off the huge heels. Her center of gravity is already way off. A tumble won’t be pretty.

  12. Marjalane says:

    My daughter was 10.5, and I was no where near as belly massive as J.S.!I have to say I was pretty darn happy when they discovered she was breech and scheduled me a C-section!

    • Floridaseaturtle says:

      I know what you mean. My children were in the 9lb range, and I tried the natural birth with my first. I was thinking it would be easy, since I wqs 29, and not a wimp or anything. Well, after 12 hrs, I apparently wasn’t “efacing” enough, and my son went into fetal distress, so they immediately did a C-Section. Wow, was I ready for that! It took nothing to talk me into C-sections for the others. However, I have heard of many stories where very petite women (like Jessica), just pop these big babies right out. No matter which way the baby arrives, she can rest assured it will be the very best day of her life thus far.

  13. Tapioca says:

    Staten Island Bagheera? Queens Kaa? Brooklyn Shere Khan? Manhattan Baloo?

    Sara Lee? Betty Crocker? Krispy Kreme?

    Or one of the classic urban legends:
    Orangello, Female (“Fe-mal-ey”), La-d (“Ladasha”).

  14. Floridaseaturtle says:

    I have grown to really like her over the years. And she is so lovably cute rolly-polly pregnant. Thank goodness she is still so young, or I would think she would have a harder time moving around. My husband thinks she looks ‘hot’. He loves curves and loves pregnancy. I think she will be a very sweet, slightly goofball mom. Like.

  15. Maya says:

    10 pounds! I know that women give birth every day and it’s a natural thing and none of us would be here if it were impossible, but still…10 pounds! I really don’t know how they do it.

  16. SpunkyPR says:

    As much as everyone makes fun of Jessica, I actually like her because of all her goofs. She’s more real then any of the so called divas or starlets. She at least owns up to the fact that she’s clueless and just country.

  17. ella says:

    I can’t wait to see that baby!

  18. Katie S. says:

    I wonder if they will name her Daisy? Please no Jerrica, no baby deserves that! :) I’ll bet she’s a cute baby, too.

  19. Samigirl says:

    I really like when celebs do bare belly preggo pics, but I wish just once someone would be proud to show off their stretch marks. There is no way Britney, Demi, Jess, Cindy, and whoever else did covers like this ALL didn’t have stretch marks.

    • Floridaseaturtle says:

      I think some women luck out due to skin type, or different ethnics/gene pools. I didn’t get stretch marks, however ITA, there is absolutely nothing embarrassing, or bad about them. (I may not have stretch marks, but I do have scars from surgeries…one is about a foot long! I totally forget about them. I have told a couple of people my long scar was from a shark, just to see their eyes pop out). Good times. lol

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Im calling it Photoshop…which reminds me, did they ‘shop her arm too? It looks way smaller on that cover than IRL…the weight is fine and she is beautiful..I’m just one of the many who’s tired of ppl looking way smaller/different in pro pics than they really are. Whatevs

    • JessSaysNo says:

      Oh it’s totally photoshopped. Compare her bump in the naked pic to the one in the red dress. She naturally carries high in the dress pic but in the Elle pic, her bump is low. ALL the celeb nude pregnant photos look like that. It’s a way to achieve that look of “I’m the same size as I was, I just have a cute basketball up front”.

      It’s totally fake but coming from someone who is 32 weeks and carrying high right now, the natural pic is not as cute…

      • Floridaseaturtle says:

        I was thinking photo shop too, for the very same reasons. And I thought it was weird when I first saw it, like they took off Demi’s head, and replaced it with Jessica’s. Yeah, too bad, because I’ll bet if it wasn’t shopped so much, she would look just as cute, just more real.

    • Kara Ann says:

      I don’t mind the pregnancy pics at all BUT this same pose is used over and over again. I wish they would do something a different. It seems like you could just photoshop in someone’s else’s head on this same old stance.

    • orion70 says:

      I’m meh on the bare belly pics. Why the sudden need to pose in the nude just because you happen to be pregnant?

  20. fabgrrl says:

    Pet peeve of mine — naming children before they are born. I find it just, kind of, weird. Although Jessica hasn’t revealed the name, so that’s something. Now, of course, before our kids were born, we had *discussed* names, and picked out our favorite, but we didn’t share it with anyone. And we waited to “meet” our babies before naming them. I kind of feel like a child should be the first to hear his/her own name.

    But that’s just me.

    • Tiffany27 says:

      ITA. I’m not sure why, but if I ever get pregnant I want to keep potential names btwn my boyfriend/husband/partner and I. And the baby won’t have a name until we meet him or her.

      • Scarlet Vixen says:

        I’m with you on this. My mom always told me to have more than one name picked out because the baby may come out and totally not look like the name you picked. She’s told me several times over the years about how my brother was born and the first thing she thought was, “Wow, you are NOT a Ricky!” She named him Rus instead, which totally suits him.

        I strongly encourage anyone to keep their babies’ names secret, too. People have no problem at all telling you that they hate your baby name choices when you’re still pregnant! But they keep their mouth shut once the baby is born. When I was preggo with my first I had so many people feel free to tell me that they absolutely hated the names I’d picked! So, with my second we kept the names to ourselves, and amazingly everyone loved my daughter’s name when she was born.

    • Amanda says:

      lol that actually sounds really unusual, to me at least. And Jessica’s Southern, remember when she said they’re getting everything embroidered? That’s what everybody does here… Each baby is born to a mountain of personalized, embroidered crap.

      • Bodhi says:

        I’m Southern & I HATE it when every.single.thing is monogrammed. And I loathe all the precious smocked clothing many of my friends from HS dress their children in. I think kids should wear comfy clothes they don’t have to worry about… which is why my son wears Oshkosh. Each to their own :-)

  21. janie says:

    it all depends on how you are built, tall vs short, long torso or short one. she looks massive bc she is short. my SIL is 6 feet tall and had a small bump at 9 months.

  22. Jessica says:

    Oh I hope her baby is born on my bday!! Come on, hold out until March 20!!!! lol

  23. lola says:

    beautifull,love it!!
    you go jess,your the best!!!

  24. Luls says:

    Am I the ONLY 1 who’s gonna comment on her nude pregnancy photos!? I’m SO over this trend. It’s totally DISTASTEFUL. Don’t people have boundaries anymore??

    ONLY 2 people who need to see that are your partner and doctor. And maybe ur mother.

    • JoJo says:

      No, you’re not the only one. I’ll totally agree with you that this nude pregnancy shoot thing is just gross. I always knew she had no class whatsoever but now it’s all showing. Never ceases to amaze me what people will do for fame and money. I’m sure her daddy is so proud!

    • Shelly says:

      I agree. She looks beautiful on the cover, but I’m over it. Demi Moore did it years and years ago, and now every single celebrity thinks we need to see their naked pregnant body. It was kind of cool and even shocking at the time Demi did it. But now it is just old and tired. Yawn.

    • Delta Juliet says:

      I don’t find it distasteful to see pregnant bodies. Personally I didn’t want to show off my big belly, but it doesn’t bother me if other women do (I’d rather see that than the fat hairy bellies I see on the middle aged men at the beach)
      I am over these poses and magazine covers though. It’s been done, over and over. Find something new.

  25. LeManda says:

    Jessica, I want you to know I WAS THAT BIG TOO! My son was almost 10lbs and dislocated my pelvic bones on the way out so considering how tiny she is I hope she c-sections.
    Good Luck Mama-to-be!

  26. normades says:

    Oh silly me, I thought she was that big because of all the crap she admitted to eating.

  27. sup says:

    giving your children untraditional names has become a tradition already.

  28. JESS says:

    Im guessing Daisy after her god that got killed :(

  29. Cleo says:

    OMFG. She’s sooo huuuge! Jesus.

  30. some bitch says:

    That’s a really big baby! I hope she gets the C-section and I’ve never been pregnant before.

    Well, all the best to her. She’s very big all over right now but her skin and hair look incredible. Good for her.

  31. Courtney says:

    aww congrats to them I bet their daughter will be beautiful and what’s so bad about the name daisy Joely Richardson named her daughter Daisy 20 years ago and she’s a perectly well mannared young lady. nor is having a 10lb baby abnormal Frank Sinatra was 13lbs 8oz when he was born 12/12/1915 in the kitchen of his maternal grandmothers house and his mum Dolly wasn’t even 5ft tall. My mom has a simillar body type to Jessica and I was 12 days late which is common for first borns but I weighed nearly 3lbs less at birth at 7lbs 11oz lets hope her daughter isn’t 21.5 inches long like I was

  32. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Two things.

    How does she KNOW the weight of the baby? In my experience, the doctor measures your bump and estimates size, but they can be off.

    Also, I’d kind of love to see Jess star in a sitcom. I think her comedic timing is dead on.

    • Abby says:

      A friend of mine recently had twins, and she said the dr. gave her the weight of her babies at each visit before they were born. Something to do with measuring different bone proportions. It’s a mystery to me too!

    • JessSaysNo says:

      They can do it by growth scan ultrasound. They told me mine was 3pounds 1oz at 30 weeks. It’s still an estimate but they measure the bones, head, and abdomen and the computer spits out a weight.

    • Bodhi says:

      That part makes me nuts. There is NO WAY that she knows that the baby will be 10lbs. There is no way to know how big a baby will be until they actually get arrive. Yeah, they can GUESS based on ultrasounds & bone measurements, but a guess is as good as it can get. Every the best ultrasound can be plus/minus at least 2lbs. The size of the baby depends on how big Mommy & Daddy were at birth, how long the baby is left to brew (the longer the better!!) and how much the mommy gains.

      • Domestic diva says:

        Noo it’s not plus or minus 2 lbs I jus had my scan on Tuesday I’m 36 weeks my son is 5lbs8oz right not I was told that he could be 2 to 3 oz off so either 5lbs 5oz or 6lbs she say he will likely weight in at 7 when he’s born but 2 whole lbs just sounds a bit fantastic what’s the point of a scan with that kind of margin for error

      • Bodhi says:

        Yes, it is totally possible for an ultrasound to be plus or minus up to 2 pounds. I know several people personally who who’s ultrasounds were off by that much. One of my friends had a 10 lb boy & he was estimated to be 13 lbs! She was really happy her US was wrong! I don’t know if there is a more reliable way of checking, but an ultrasound can certainly be off.

        I only had 2 because the midwives I saw didn’t see the need for them if the mom & baby are healthy.

  33. Delta Juliet says:

    The one thing that strikes me about that cover…..shoot me if you must, but I think a lot of that belly is fat, not baby. The way her belly button is still sunk in and not pointing out, or even flat. Usually, the baby will push that sucker right out.

  34. ClaireBear says:

    The photo is beautiful! Jessica seems really down to earth and I like that about her. i read somewhere that she is also a successful business woman too. I hope she gives birth soon- carrying all that baby around has to be exhausting for her and a back breaker with the heavy tummy and breasts.

  35. Ravensdaughter says:

    Demi did it first….

  36. dahlia noir says:

    I’d get pregnant again just so I can wear that beautiful dress!

  37. the cheetah says:

    I’m not a fan of the nude pregnancy photos…just like I’m not a fan of weekly belly pics on facebook. It’s tacky imo

  38. Christina says:

    So on People they have Jessica’s cover and Demi’s cover and it says Demi was 7 months pregnant when that was taken and Jessica’s stomach actually looks slightly smaller. And yet….all these comments on her weight.

    Is it just because Jessica’s weight has always been an issue or what?

  39. Me says:

    Oh for f—s sake I hate the naked pregnant woman shot.

  40. Lisa says:

    Oh, piss off with this non-traditional. In 50 years, we’re all going to be looking at obituaries for old people named Skylon Tower Cerberus, with a duckface and a peace sign in their picture. Groooooss.

  41. Cheryl says:

    I don’t think Jess is really pregnant.

  42. Christelle says:

    You eat this much pregnant and you put yourself at risk for gestational diabetes. high birth weight may be an indicator of future health problems for babies. Just saying…pigging out is not a good idea. And yes, there will be some woman who says she gain 100lbs and delivered a 12lb baby an it is fine, but I still wouldn’t do it

      Gisele’s comments about pregnant women who treat their bodies like a garbage disposal comes to mind. I’m sorry but being a sweet girl or not, Jessica’s admitted gluttony disgusts me and I wouldn’t be surprised if her and her baby both end up with diabetes as a result of her reckless eating. If she wants to be a pig, so be it but it’s not fair to bring the baby into the world with health problems.

      • Mae East says:

        According to the literature I just got from my ObGyn, gestational diabetes only occurs in ONE TO TWO PERCENT of pregnant women.

        I would have guessed it was closer to 75% based on the amount it’s discussed on these boards in relation to Jessica Simpson!

  43. Nikki Girl says:

    I’m sorry but that cover photo is Photoshopped into oblivion. Her arms weren’t even that thin BEFORE she got pregnant, they are chunky and thick, and crap like that can give other pregnant people a complex, thinking their arms, legs, and face should still be skinny while pregnant. Jess was not thin even before she got pregnant, and the only place she hasn’t gained weight while pregnant is her calves, everywhere else is thicker. I wish magazines would stop with the Photoshopping, just show how people really are!

  44. flutters says:

    Tacky cover IMO. There is just nothing original about Jessica Simpson.

    Wishing the couple a happy and healthy baby girl of course. But I can’t help but think of all the self esteem issues that baby girl is going to wind up with given how her mother behaves and what that reveals about her thinking.

  45. Lucky Charm says:

    I don’t have time to read all the comments, but I’ll just throw this suggestion in the ring: Maybe she’ll follow her sister’s lead and go with Brooklyn Messua (Brooklyn, Bronx. And Messua & Mowgli from “The Jungle Book”…)

  46. Rachel says:

    Weight estimations should be treated with a big grain of salt. I gave birth to my son a week and a half early and was told he would be low 7, but he was over 8. My friend had regular ultrasounds and was told her daughter would be nearly 10 lb by the time she was born… she was a little over 7 lb and tiny. It’s hardly an exact science.

  47. Sillysweetpete says:

    Lyric is my guess and I really enjoy Jessica and all of her quirks.

  48. SueAnn says:

    10lbs is not a healthy weight! That is way too big.

    • Jaye says:

      Lots of babies are born at that weight or heavier and are perfectly healthy. A friend of mine gave birth to a boy who was 10.5lbs. She ate well and stayed active and he was still huge. A baby being born that big isn’t necessarily indicative of poor eating on the part of the mother.

      • SueAnn says:

        Just my opinion, but I was told by my doctor when I was pregnant that anything over 9lbs is not healthy. I know Miranda Kerr will come to mind, but it is what I was told and I trust my doc. I don’t think that kid i 10lbs because it is healthy. I think it 10lbs because its mother ate poptart sandwiches. I am a Diabetic (not gestational and not a fat woman either), I ate perfectly healthy through my pregnancy and my baby girl was 6.l lbs…I am as tall and as big as Jess. She shouldn’t be having no 10 lb kid.

    • Remote Control says:

      Oh sueann, you’re so wrong!

  49. HadleyB says:

    I love her hair, is it real or extensions ? The color is fabu too .. I think she looks beautiful !!

    But a ten pound baby is kinda big.. I feel bad for Jess its so big. I hope she can whip herself back into shape, I know it’s hard especially with the whole world watching and making fun of you.

    But I am sure a wedding is good motivation! I can’t wait to see her wedding dress.

  50. Holden says:

    Jessica Simpson has been pregnant for two years, of course the baby is going to be bigger than average. She also eats at BJs and Taco Bell, so the baby has plenty of carbs.

  51. Isa says:

    I had a feeling she was having a girl. Was this pic taken when she was in her first trimester? Because she’s a lot bigger now.
    Ultrasounds can have about a 1-2 lb error.

  52. the original bellaluna says:

    Macallan? Or Macayla? (I’m just being sarcastic.) She’ll name the baby something cute, I think.

    I hope she gets her C-section. If not, I hope someone stuffs a 10 lb watermelon up Johnson’s no-no. (Not being sarcastic.)

  53. Marybel says:

    The timing is so obvious since Nick just announced Vanessa’s pregnancy. Jess just keeps giving me reasons to roll my eyes. Baby’s name: Jesserica, Joerica, Pawpawsaperv, Daisy Mae (horrible to name a kid after a dog).

  54. Belle says:

    My second daughter was 10 pounds 8 ounces (a week early), and I did manage a vaginal delivery, though it was difficult. First baby was almost 9 pounds (almost a week early), and even more difficult, very nearly resulting in an emergency c-section. Those first babies do ‘pave the way’ some, so I was grateful that the 10 1/2 pounder was the second time around and not the first! As much as I liked and trusted my doctor, looking back, I believe both deliveries should have been scheduled c-sections.

    Wishing Jess the very best…. if her doctors are telling her the baby is going to be that big, then I’m sure they are preparing for it. As for the name… oh please, let it not be something immature. Not trying to hate on her, but she seems like the type to come up with something you would do if you were in high school… like combining their names(;

  55. Courtney says:

    shut up people just because she gained alot of weight doesn’t mean she has gestational diabetes and if she does she probably doesn’t want to talk about it before the baby is born. a 10lb baby wouldn’t surprise me the pic looks like it was taken in early February for the April issue. no matter how much weight she gained Jessica was gonna look huge because she’s short her sister Ashlee who is 2.5 inches taller gained 55lbs while pregnant with her nephew bronx. not all pregnant women get streach marks it depends on genetics and how rapidly you gain/lose weight during/after pregnancy. theres a famous pic of Natasha Richardson and Liam Neeson folicking in the ocean taken in May 1996 when she was 6 months pregnant with their youngest son Daniel Jack who if I remember correctly was 9lbs 14.5oz at birth that August granted Natasha was 5’9″ not 5’3.5″ like Jessica is so she didn’t look nearly as big

  56. sabs says:

    We do need someone to re address the famous Demo Moore pregnancy pic. It is done to death. But she is conducting herself well.

  57. Amanda says:

    LMAO at the oxymoron in this comment

  58. Tastykakes says:

    I don’t mean this in any way that would be taking a shot at her weight, as I think she looks great & is doing really well… But I think the baby will have some sort of cutesy food type name. Maybe something vanilla-ish. Or maybe some sort of pretty tropical flower. Can’t wait to find out!

  59. TaylorB says:

    As for naming a kid I agree it is best to meet the kid first. For the first 3 days of my life I was Amy even on my first BC (pre-picked out) and after my parents met me they changed their minds and decided I wasn’t an Amy and I got a whole new Birth Cert and a new name.

  60. Camille (The original) says:

    Ugh. :roll:

    As for her cover shot, as someone said up thread it’s tacky, not to mention it’s also boring.

  61. thetruthhurts says:

    Um, obviously she is naming the baby “Daisy.”

  62. Baylor says:

    Maybe she will name it:

  63. Courtney says:

    what’s so bad about that it’s a beautiful name and floral ones are common for girls Holly Iris Lily Rose and Violet come to mind. like I said earlier a 10lb baby isn’t uncommon. you never know Jessica’s baby could be breach like Pink’s daughter willow was so that shows bigger especially on a short girl maybe Emma Ann as Ann is Jess’s middle name and also her mother Tina’s or maybe Rachel Lynn one of them might be a fan of Lynn Redgraves who’s middle name was Rachel after her mother Shakespherean actress Lady Rachel Kempson let’s just wait and see

  64. mek821 says:

    I love her. She’s beautiful and funny and very REAL which is refreshing. I wish her and her baby girl the best.

  65. Persephone says:

    Ok I have to weigh in on this (pun intended LOL) I’ve been preggo twice, the first time I carried EXACTLY like Jess… when I was 3 months people would routinely ask if I was 6 months along, when I was 6 months people would say “any day now huh?” and when I was 9 months.. well I had one guy refuse to believe that I wasn’t carrying twins! My baby ended up being 9.2oz. Second pregnancy was very different, I wasn’t even half as big. She ended up being “only” 7lbs.

  66. Ogechi says:

    I love her! I’m so going to buy that magazine.

  67. Jim says:

    So she looks like a walking 55 gal. drum on stilts. Big deal. There is a up side to this; Look at those udders!!! The kid won’t ever go hungry. Thinking about it! I bet, she could keep a family of 5 in meals for a good month. Then when the kid done suckling. Those puppies will be down around her knees. The toddler (or toddlers) will have something to swing and play on.
    I’d like to know how sexy she feels in her heels when she comes home from the hospital. Baby in her arms, boobs leaking through her top, stitches itching more than the hemorrhoids hurting and Eric asking how soon he can nail her again?
    You put yourself out there like she has. You deserve what ever people say about you. But … Do enjoy the cry, on the way to the bank.

  68. Baylor says:

    I know some poeple have suggested names like Tina, Joanna, Daisy, and what not. However, to me those are traditinal names. You will find other people walking around with those names. I see a “non-traditional” name as one no one else has or at least is fairly rare. There is nothing rare about those names.

    Maybe it will be Dukes, Duka, Happy, etc.

    We will have to wait and see.

  69. sabs says:

    My goodness, I have just taken another look at the pics…how can I say this nicely…that baby is not going to starve that’s for sure!

  70. Mary says:

    Jessica Simpson looks like a drag queen.
