Jessica Simpson shows off her bare baby bump in a bikini: cute or try-hard?

Since you guys can’t seem to get enough of Jessica Simpson’s second pregnancy, or new photos of Jessica, here you go. Like, all of the sites are running with this photo that Jessica tweeted yesterday (message: “Bumpin’ and proud”), and everyone is talking about it…? I don’t really get why Jessica has been tweeting a flurry of new pics, or why everyone wants to talk about them. For this latest stunt, she’s tweeted a selfie of her baby bump in a bikini. A few points: one, Jessica’s bump is bigger than I was expecting, especially if she’s only in her first trimester (which I believe she is, although she was showing really quickly with her first pregnancy too). Second point: Jessica looks GREAT. I don’t understand why anyone would criticize her for anything. Look at how pretty her skin looks! And it’s amazing to me that she gained and lost all of that weight and she doesn’t have any stretch marks or loose skin. She looks really good.

As you can see from the pics, Jessica is still in Hawaii with Eric and her family. I’m still saying that there’s a really, really good chance Jessica is going to have a small wedding in Hawaii. Maybe tonight. Maybe tomorrow. She should totally get married in a bikini. If I looked this good, I would totally do that.

PS… People who are pregnant right now and due around the same time: Jessica, Kim Kardashian and Duchess Kate. EPIC TWINSIES.

    How cute! She looks bigger than I expected. Glad she’s happy. She seems like a nice girl, I don’t know why everybody gives her such a hard time.

    • AtlChick says:

      IKR, 99% of the people making negative comments about her WISHED they looked as good as she does PREGNANT & in a BIKINI…..

    • Lishka says:

      That said, she has stretch marks, I can see em, on the belly and on her tits.

      Just coz the marks are white on white (me being brown skinned, I KNOW I cant hide mine!) they are not as obvious, but they are still visible if you look at the lines that go vertically, from her belly button down.

      Plus, gimme a break, she gained SO MUCH weight the first pregnancy itself, and fast! So no way she would get out with NO stretch marks!

  2. Jess says:

    Why is she making a sexy face into the mirror? What the hell is the matter with her?

    • Mally says:

      Lol that’s typical Jessica airhead Simpson. Re:kaisers surprise that Jessica doesn’t have any stretch marks after gaining and losing weight, I wouldn’t be surprise if she was wearing body makeup and or self-tanner to hide things like that. The lighting is also kinda low so we really can’t tell if she has stretch marks or not. I don’t think that any of these photos are actually candid; I’m sure she and other celebs put a lot of thought and prep into these supposedly candid photos of them in everyday life

      • 'Sup? says:

        Exactly, again Simpson: take the damned bathrobe off. She always covers her midsection with loads and loads of fabric like she is hiding some major love handles and side stretch marks. She can’t go with just her bikini to the beach not even because she is in Hawaii???!!! Seriously???? Just like her WW fraud commercial, I watched it on tv the other day and ALL the regular people in the success stories wore stretch clothing and you can see the actual weight loss results, then towards the end is Blimpson standing on a pick up truck bed with that “Al Borland” flannel shirt…rolling my eyes…

      • Sandy Pandy says:

        Blimpson LOLLL. She’s huge already – what month is she in? Wow. you can’t see stretch marks from a phone pic taken in a mirror, come on. She doesn’t look that good. I bet up close she’s a freakin’ train wreck like we all would be if we were the size she was in her last pregnancy.

      • belly says:

        @ Sandy Pandy
        Seconded. I know, because I was her size in my pregnancies, and train wreck would be the politest description of my new midsection.
        Maybe her new bump is filling out the loose skin.
        Either way, she looks pretty damn good and she is a lucky girl. If she wants a tummy tuck after, it’s not like she can’t afford it.

  3. daisydoodle says:

    what did she do, take her truss off? my god, she must be further along that we thought…

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      She seemed to spend her entire first pregnancy looking like she was nine months along. Why not spend her first trimester looking like she’s six months along?

  4. carrie says:

    she yet looks very pregnant

    • Becky1 says:

      There’s no way she’s still in her first trimester unless she’s expecting twins and is very late in the first trimester. She’s at least 4-5 months along.

      I really don’t like fame whore type behavior and this bikini shot reeks of it…pregnant or not sending out pics of yourself looking in the mirror in a bikini is tacky and narcissistic.

    • Pam says:

      Exactly. She would do anything for attention. And the big irony is that now she must compete with Kim Kuntrashian. Two big attention whores pregnant at the same time?! Armageddon is comming…

      • t says:

        I think the Simpson sisters are having a cat fight through these holiday pictures. First Ashlee appears on the beach like this….

        Not wanting to be outdone by her younger sister, Jessica posts a feeble retaliation with a bit of side boob flopping out of a loose beach coverup. (see above picture)

        Ashlee responds mightily with a full bikini bikini shot…

        An enraged Jessica has no other choice than to expose the bump. “Nice try amateur, but I’m the bigger famewhore in this family, Ashlee”

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        Ashlee has the same build as Leanne Rimes, but with far less tone 😳

  5. dread pirate cuervo says:

    She looks like a cross between David Lee Roth & Mrs. Roper.

  6. keats says:

    Fine minus the duck lips. But I think you have to do duck lips if you’re taking a selfie.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      Proud to say I’ve never done duck face. I absolutely hate it. Also terrible the new ceiling eyes and ugly face trends and the older the person doing it, the dumber I think they are.

    • MSMLNP says:

      ITA. Would have been cute. Duck-face makes it try hard.

  7. Hautie says:

    Jessica has always been a pretty girl. Especially without all the makeup.

    Which unfortunately I am not. I need my face full of makeup. :)

    Now I understand why she was so covered up, in that commercial for WW. If she is showing this much. She would have been showing when they shot that last commercial.

    But we all tend to forget, Jessica is short. And 10 pounds on her… will look like 25. So if someone was to tell me she was barely past her first trimester. I would not be surprised.

    The girl just has no were for that baby to go. So she will look huge before that third trimester.

  8. Isa says:

    I can’t take another round of Miss Simpsons pregnancy and how big she is. Grrrr

    I guess another pregnancy is what she needs to keep the spotlight on her again but she didnt see Kim kartrashian coming. Move over Jessica.

  9. truthful says:

    I guess I am just shocked she is as far along or big as she is..

    no other comment

  10. Quinn says:

    Why do we care about this person again? I can’t seem to remember anything she’s done since her fabulous single, “A Public Affair”…???

  11. suze says:

    Seems impossible to believe that both she and Duchess Kate are in their first trimesters. Kate must be giving birth to a royal grape.

    Jessica does look good here, though.

    • jess says:

      bahahahahahaha “royal grape”

    • Brown says:

      That is EXACTLY what I thought. I know we haven’t had many recent pics of Kate, but damn, I’m not pregnant and I have more of a baby bump than she does just from eating a burrito. She should count her blessings, though. If she was this big at 3 months, she would tip right over…

    • Lindsay says:

      Kate is not as far along, Jessica waited until the safe 12 week mark. Kate is taller by 5′, she has a freakishly long and disproportionate torso*, started way skinner, is pregnant for the first time, has food issues if not a full blown eating disorder, and was hospitalized for severe, albeit seemingly selective, morning sickness. Those are huge factors so it isn’t that hard to believe.

      * Jessica’s is a bit long too but no where near Kate’s in length or proportion.

      Also, Kate’s body and mind are really struggling with the idea of the word “labor”, so stress may also be a factor.

      • TG says:

        @Lindsay – Your analysis is too funny! Especially like the play on “labor”. Golden. I woud add that I think Jess is sticking our her stomach to make herself look bigger and tighter. I could be wrong though. I don’t trust that pic for a minute. She has a pretty face, minus the duck lips, and by the way isn’t that stupid trout pout removable?, but her body is wrecked and the proof is as was mentioned above, she couldn’t even look thin in the WW commercials. There is something wrong with me because I find most photos of pregnant women to look freakish. Like alien or something.

  12. crtb says:

    She looks adorable

  13. Samigirl says:

    How the hell did she hide that thing?! hea so big already. And she looks fantastic!

  14. Samigirl says:

    How the hell did she hide that thing?! She isaso big already. And she looks fantastic!

    • Agnes says:


      And I know that everyone shows differently, but she looks farther along than first trimester. :)

    • Esmom says:

      I think she looks fantastic, too. Especially in contrast to the pics of her sister. Interesting juxtaposition of photos!

  15. nickynoneck says:

    I want to see those titties !

  16. littlemissnaughty says:

    Uh … I had a friend who looked like this six months in. HOW is she so big already?
    She looks cute though. Wish she would wear less make up in general, it ages her and she doesn’t need it at all. She looks at least 5 years younger without it.

  17. megs283 says:

    About her being so big – it seems like second pregnancies show a LOT sooner (and bigger). My SIL and many of her friends are on round two, and they all showed so soon. It was very surprising.

    And can everyone make a New Year’s resolution to NOT do selfies?? UGH!

    • Rachel says:

      Amen! What’s with the mirror pic, for the love of camera phones?!?! JUST STOP. It screams “I’m an attention whore!” If you want to post a cute photo of yourself have someone else take it. Jeez.

    • Esmom says:

      ITA about second pregnancies. And Jessica’s baby isn’t that old, so her body was still in pregnancy mode, probably.

  18. Dani says:

    Interesting how Jessica Simpson, pregnant with her second child from the same man, whom she is engaged to, gets sht for being a ‘fame whore’ but Kim Kardashian, still married to her ex and pregnant with another mans baby gets let off easier.

  19. Feebee says:

    She probably looks bigger than expected because its her second and her body’s shifting into gear more easily esp since she was pregnant less than a year ago, Plus despite the WW weight loss it would be natural for her to still be carrying some weight in that area.

    She does look good in the face (ignoring the expression). Maybe that means a boy this time.

  20. Miss M says:

    Jessica always had a pretty face and it shows when she doesn’t wear makeup. As far as I remember, she always struggled with her weight. Didn’t she have to lose a ton of weight before she started her career and shot videos like “I think I’m in love with you” and “where you are”?
    Yes, I do know this because I am from the same generation of Xtina, Britney, Jessica… Like someone said in a previous thread, I wish Mandy Moore got my recognition.

  21. Stuart Horsely says:

    Totally beyond tacky, totally.

  22. Victoria1 says:

    I’m tired of these baby bump shots. BFD you’re pregnant and in a bikini or nude, no one wants to see it. As Bedhead said on twitter, blame Demi Moore

    • jess says:

      I want to see it. I think it’s adorable. I just ended my first trimester and I have the tiniest bump ever, so it’s CRAZY to see someone this big already lol

    • erika says:

      oh god i wish i had the money to send you on a national campaign well, just all of hollywood so you could SHOUT THAT in the ears of all these damn bitches (!!!) sorry….who have the luxury to do NOTHING all day long but massage Keils lotion on to their prized baby bump and then self take photos of themselves infront of bathroom mirrors!

      We GET IT you are pregnant, WOW. chicks have been getting pregnant since the dawn of time! it’s overload for us….

  23. mommak918 says:

    Whoa…she does look good! She is showing early because it’s her second, she’s also short with a short torso, and she didn’t wait long between pregnancies!

    I waited 13months and I showed waaay early and looked bigger, even without gaining as much. I do want to say I am jealous she didn’t get stretch marks…how the heck did she do that? I put on 45ish lbs and got crazy stretch marks…
    And my stomach never looked this precious.

    Darn you, JS!!!

    And yea, If I looked that good Id definitely show it off.

  24. Shannon says:

    She looks about 7 months pregnant.

  25. lisa2 says:

    Kim just threw her womb in the race. Jessica has already had a pregnancy. It is Kim’s first. So wonder where all the attention will be. See who is the biggest. These women are just so funny.

    Jessica probably looks bigger because she is further along then anyone thought. She has been hiding behind her clothes for a while now. The press is the ones that speculated the 12 or so weeks. She announced it because everyone guessed and she has gotten too big to hid it. Or she could be having twins. Who knows. But I doubt the twins. I think she would have spilled that news. Anyway she looks cute and congrats to her and wishing for a healthy baby.

  26. Nikki Girl says:

    Wow, nice duck lips. These pictures are super trashy. She disgusts and annoys me, I really wish she’d stop getting any coverage.

    • anon says:

      Trashy as in every other celebrity that posts the same pics or unknown person just happy to share.. I suspect its just because its Jessica there for the comment is irrelavant.

  27. Memphis says:

    I think that’s just the baby weight she didn’t lose the first time (but said she did and hid under flannel shirts for her commercials)

    But aside from the bigness of it all…she looks good (minus the duck lips of course)

  28. Jayna says:

    She is either farther along than suspected or she’s been binding her big belly up with all kinds of Spanx pretending to be thinner in the belly after her weight loss for Weight Watchers, and thus she really had a fat belly when she got pregnant and isn’t far along but just started out with a big belly and now the pregnancy on top of it makes her look farther along than she is.

    • SnarkySnarkers says:

      THIS! She never lost all the weight so 3 months pregs looks like 6 months pregs. Either way, I love Farty McDonalds.

    • jess says:

      I don’t personally see a lot of fat on her stomach…but I’m at the same point of my pregnancy that Jessica allegedly is, and while not even *close* to as big, I would probably shoot someone who suggested I wear Spanx. Wearing super tight clothes is now a completely different story! Even though I just started *baaarreeellyy* showing, I cant imagine wearing some of the stuff I used to without some cramping or a lot of uncomfortableness.

  29. Kat says:

    Since there are bikini pics of her sister floating around, Jessica Simpson decided to remind the world that she is also attractive. Thanks for the reminder, Jessica.

  30. Fashion Spy says:

    Don’t you think Jess looks better here (in her selfie) than she did in that cover shoot? I do!

  31. Lisa says:

    For the love of god, WHY? I’m not body shaming, I just don’t need this to be a part of my day.

  32. shewolf says:

    She’s so gorgeous but damn that girl has it rough when pregnant. I didnt look that pregnant at 9 months either with my first or my second.

  33. anon says:

    remember her cover shot at 4-5 months she was same size.. This is how she carries & has big babies & again will probably carry some exceess fluid as before. I don’t know why we critisize her showing her belly when so many many women do & none celebrtiy woman at that. Its there proud achievment they want to share. People know when they click what there getting so why spend the time clicking if it bothers you.

    There also is lazer for stretch marks.. its not biggey anymore & I also believe that Jess has the skin that doesnt mark like other womens.. her marks would be far & few between. If you think Jess is a fame whore just wait for good old KIM to get started & enjoy. You may beg to have Jessica back.. lol

    Happy New Year everyone! 2013

  34. palermo says:

    Between this one and Kim K I may have to stop reading celeb gossip in 2012, it will be endless …

  35. Lem says:

    She’s cute.
    I’m reminded of some girlfriends who start posting fb baby belly shots immediately.
    ZOMG! Week 3
    Zoinks! Week 6.
    Don’t think for a second we are all thinking “wow, look how pregnant she looks at 3 weeks”
    Second thought, nothing to do with Jess. But if any of my girlfriend’s are here. I’m not fooled that what was belly fat last week is a baby bump this week.
    Maybe I should have posted this in the Kartrashian files. I’m side eyeing you Kimmy

  36. MG says:

    She looks like she is 5 months already!

  37. ramie says:

    TOTALLY GROSS. Keep it to yourself & your man!

  38. Minxx says:

    She is at least 4-5 months pregnant. No way this is a 12 week belly, even with a second baby. She probably got knocked up the minute she was OK to have sex.. or maybe before that. She looks good though – she could still have stretchmarks, they usually appear on the sides of the belly (covered on the photo), so they wouldn’t show on the photo.

  39. Apsutter says:

    Not a big J Simp fan but she does look absolutely gorgeous!! I wouldn’t be surprised if they tied the knot while in Hawaii because they are both positively radiating with happiness and look so comfortable there. Her skin looks amazing and I love that she’s barely wearing any makeup. It makes her look 22 again!

  40. Jennifer12 says:

    She is NOT in her first trimester. There is no way you get that big so quickly. That’s about a five month belly she’s showing. Her kids will probably be just about a year apart. Yes, she’s a pretty girl and since I’m built like her, I’m not going to criticize her weight. She’s never been huge, except during pregnancy, and what do you expect? When your breasts are real, it comes with the hips and the butt and you can’t stay skinny naturally. But why on earth do people still care? She no longer sings or acts and she’s with a freeloader. Her sister’s career is totally dead. All they have left is to pap themselves.

    • Amelia says:

      Jessica’s breasts are not real/original; she’s had quite a bit of work done on them. There are before and after pics online.
      I guess I just don’t get the need to take self portraits of your pregnant self to show the world. Isn’t wearing cute maternity clothes good enough?

  41. GrandPoobah says:

    I do not understand this need to show off your giant baby gut. I know women who have been pregnant and they did not have the urge to walk around or take pictures of themselves half naked.

    I feel like this kind of thing is for you and your partner, not the world. And it certainly isn’t sexy by any means. Maybe your partner finds you sexy, but no one else does.

  42. hatsumomo says:

    I think she looks so beautiful! Her belly is so round and I cant believe she has no stretch marks! Maybe its on her sides? I got three so far on my left side and hip(Im 27 weeks) and Ive been slathering on the cocoa butter like crazy! An I can definitely get behind her desire to take a ton of pictures of herself while pregnant. Ive been blowing up my FB wall with tons of pics of myself in profile & in different outfits to highlight my bump. This is my first and most likly only pregnancy, Im so super thrilled about EVERY little thing! If I was on the beach right now Id be in a bikini too showing off my belly. Screw any woman whose ashamed of their bodies while pregnant! And screw them doubly so for trying to shame another woman for wanting to show off her pride in her amazing figure.

  43. Abby says:

    2013 is the year of the celeb baby. Y’all don’t forget about Channing Tatum’s wife! She’s due next year too!


  44. Mew says:

    I hate the duckface. Why on earth does everyone and their mom have to do the duckface look in photos? Bang, I say, shot the duck down.

  45. palermo says:

    I really HATE this trend of grown women posing revealing pictures of themselves in their bathrooms, in lingerie, bikinis, etc. Pursing their lips. The world is going to hell in a handbasket. Nothing is private any more.

  46. Mr. Stinky FishFace says:

    Eh with the size of the belly thing I’m torn. I had kids 15 months apart, I’m the same height as Jess and I swear the day I found out I was pregnant I looked like I did at 4 months with my first even though I was only 5 weeks along. However I wouldn’t ever have gotten into a bikini and shown the world. :S Either way I hope its a healthy baby.

  47. Kate says:

    She’s not particularly attractive but I can say at least we know she is with child unlike Beyonce and her fake baby bump show.
