Jessica Simpson will eat BBQ in the middle of a tornado if need be

Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail will keep Jessica Simpson from a BBQ. These are photos of Jessica leaving the Boneyard Bistro (a BBQ place) yesterday with her fiancé, Eric Johnson. Yes, she’s still mega-preg. Yes, she’s still eating everything that isn’t nailed down. Yes, she looks so pregnant that I am experiencing a wave of discomfort on her behalf. She’s due soon. Ish. Like, the next three weeks or so. Poor Jess.

By the way, did you hear that she sold the photos of her baby shower to People Magazine and Hello Mag? You can see one of the pics here. I don’t really get why we needed to know about her Charlotte’s Web-themed baby shower, but here you go:

Heavily pregnant American reality TV star and singer Jessica Simpson admits she can’t wait to finally give birth. As excited as she is to meet her unborn daughter, due next month, she is more than ready to reclaim her body, too.

“I feel like I could pop at any second,” the Fashion Star mentor tells this week’s HELLO! magazine, revealing she has gained 40lbs – and counting!

“I had a great pregnancy. Eating and not having to worry too much about it has been fun. Taking a break from working out has definitely been fun. But I’m ready for it to be over. I’m ready to have my body back!”

Jessica, 31, celebrated the last phase of her pregnancy by throwing a lavish Hollywood baby shower inspired by her favourite children’s book, Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White.

Guests included her actress sister Ashlee, who came with her three-year-old son Bronx, and actress Jessica Alba, who brought along her seven-month-old daughter Haven. They took part in shower games, such as guess the size of Jessica’s belly, and knitting lessons.

Jessica, who stars alongside Elle Macpherson on the popular new NBC reality show, enjoyed opening all her gifts with her fiancé, former NFL player Eric Johnson, 32.

“Eric is going to be an unbelievable dad,” she says. “I can’t wait to see if he can master ponytails and braids!”

Here’s an honest question: do you think Jessica will get pregnant again after this baby? I’m surprised by how little complaining she’s done, but I would imagine that after the baby is born, we’ll hear every last little detail about how difficult the pregnancy and the birth was on her. I don’t know, though – Jessica could surprise us. Maybe she’ll just keep having dem babies.

Oh, and we don’t have access to these photos, but check out Jessica in a giant green muumuu. Some passive-aggressive bitch made Mega-Preg be a bridesmaid!! That’s some Mean Girl junk right there.

    Forty lbs.?? That’s all?? o.O

    • Mr. Stinky FishFace says:

      I would say she’s closer to 50-60 range.

    • Rae says:

      Yeah there is no way homegirl only gained 40 lbs. I’m not hatin’ I luv be some Jsimps but definitely looks more like 60ish lbs.

      • HotPockets says:

        You have to consider the girl is only 5 1′ or 5 2′, 40 pounds is a lot for someone that height.

      • MsCatra says:

        @HotPockets – Forty pounds DOES look like a lot on a small frame, but that looks like more than 40 to me. I’m 5’1″, due 4/6, and have gained just under 40 pounds and I’m not that huge.

    • Sweettart says:

      She’s short. The baby doesn’t have anywhere to go except for out. That’s probably a third of her normal weight, so yes I believe it.

      She probably has a lot of water retention as well.

      “Here’s an honest question: do you think Jessica will get pregnant again after this baby?”

      My guess is yes, you forget all the misery after the baby is born.

      Every time I see a picture of her I think, “Poor thing.”

      The last two months are just miserable in general. She is so big, I can’t even imagine.

  2. Franny says:

    I think this is a very cute mega preggers outfit. That last picture makes me super uncomfortable though – it looks like a beer gut…you know, how it hangs over your legs instead of sticking out? I hope she has that baby soon!

  3. Eve says:

    Yes, she’s still eating everything that isn’t nailed down.


  4. paola says:

    At least in the rain she is wearing flip flops and not some stupid high heels! can’t wait to see this baby though, bet she’s gorgeous!

  5. Searching4grace says:

    I really like these pictures. I love that they’re both smiling, and looks like they’re laughing. I love that she’s in flipflops. She does look super ready to pop. At least she’s going to have that baby before it gets really hot. Summer pregnancies suck.

    “Some passive agreesive bitch made her a bridesmaid”


  7. Courtney says:

    um Jessica can’t help how big she looks she’s carring excess amniotic fluid and a baby that’s gonna be about 10lbs when she’s born in less than a month plus probably a long baby too. at least she didn’t gain 65 like my mom did with me 27 years ago and I was only 7lbs 11oz but 21 1/2 inches long. can’t wait to see the baby Jessica will be a wonderful mom

  8. Lem says:

    The size of her thighs is scary! (Says the woman who gained 100+ with #2) Her tush is 2x the size of that belly! Rude awakening on the way when your legs are bigger than a Beckham each.

  9. Lem says:

    I <3 the rain & I love pulled pork! Sounds like an awesome day! I too would eat ban in a monsoon.

  10. Jazzmin says:

    Being pregnant is not a license to become a fat unhealthy pig Jessica. All the careless eating and lack of exercise will make it harder for you to lose the weight. You had problems with your yo-yo weight before the baby so good luck with that.

    • cmc says:

      Yeah, this. Using pregnancy as an excuse for taking a break from working out? As far as I know, unless your doctor recommends you stop you should still keep a fairly active lifestyle. That part of the quote explains everything so much more than the eating. Of course she blew up like a balloon…not only is she eating all kinds of unhealthy stuff (which I only know because she keeps telling us about the unhealthy things she is eating, all the time, and never mentioning anything healthy) AND she stopped working out. Sheesh. Good luck getting that weight off, lady.

      • Moneypenny says:

        Exactly. I’m 39 weeks and worked out until 37 weeks when I got sidelined by bad hip pain. She should not have stopped working out unless she had a medical reason–and judging by the pop tarts and BBQ, she doesn’t have one.

        She is huge, but she is a pretty girl. I think their baby will be adorable!

  11. silken_floss says:

    She looks like she having a healthy, happy pregnancy. Good for her 🙂

  12. Elisabeth says:

    it’s gonna be hilarious when that baby is only 6lbs and she still looks 32 months pregnant in september

  13. Cathy says:

    At least flip flops are safer than heels. I can’t see how any woman can where heels normally much less when they are 8 months pregnant. I would fall flat on my face if I tried to wear some of the shoes that these celebritys wear.

  14. Agnes says:

    omg, i love her pregnant, she’s so happy. and i love bbq. if i could get my hands on some pulled pork right about now…

  15. lola says:

    shes just beautifull!!!!

  16. Isa says:

    She looks so much better in that dress! All the other ones she’s been wearing make her look a lot bigger.
    I guessed shes’s gained closer to 60 lbs.
    Is there such thing as vegan BBQ?

    • Jazzmin says:

      Vegan BBQ? why must you curse like that?

    • cmc says:

      Vegan here – there most certainly is! It ain’t the same, obviously, but people can do some amazing things with seitan and tempeh! Also, I tried a delicious vegan pulled-“chicken” from Trader Joes and it is divine.

      I may be a vegan, but I definitely still want to enjoy my food!

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Trader Joe’s has the best vegan, I think. Because I think they actually EAT it before they buy it to sell to us.

        (Not quite vegan – can’t wrap my tastebuds around tofu; but mostly poultry & lacto/ovo.)

  17. the original bellaluna says:

    “Actress sister” Ashlee Simpson?!?!?

    Delusional much?

    And I feel for Jess, I do. Being that big preggers is never a fun thing. You can’t sit down right; you can’t get up without help; and it’s a good day if you can control your bladder AND your heartburn.

  18. the original bellaluna says:

    You can tell they’re in Cali because of the flip-flops in the rain.

  19. Dusty says:

    White trash.

  20. Hannah says:

    Lol, white trash coming from someone named Dusty. She’s happy, who cares.

  21. Sugar says:

    the part in her hair even looks like it gained weight. her dress is super cute, seeing her in rubber slippers is a nice change. Jessica rockin the casual-sweet
