Jessica Simpson Confirms Her Second Pregnancy
Many women strive to be as creative as possible when announcing they are pregnant. Jessica Simpson is no different; she posted a picture on Twitter of seven-month old Maxwell Drew in a Christmas outfit above the words “Big Sis” written in the sand. The songstress has been the subject of pregnancy rumors for the past few weeks, and has been seen wearing loose fitting clothes around town.
Part of the speculation was about her contract with Weight Watchers as a spokesperson; Simpson lost 60 pounds after her daughter’s birth. Weight Watchers has declined to comment on the rumors, it remains to be seen what they will do now that the pregnancy has been confirmed. Simpson and her fiancé Eric Johnson, had planned to get married after Simpson reached her goal weight, it is not known if those plans are on hold for now.
I feel for Jessica Simpson for a few reasons. First, it is a fiercely private matter to be pregnant and I think that people should be able to announce their pregnancy when and how they want, the fact that both times she has been pregnant, sources have leaked the news first is sad. Second, I know firsthand how hard it is to have two children so close together. My first and second children are only 16 months apart and it was extremely difficult for me both while I was pregnant and the first year or so of my second child’s life. It also does a number on your body. Simpson, who gained a large amount of weight with her first, may have an even harder time keeping her body in check so soon after having a child. In the end, I wish that her pregnancy is easy and that she experiences all of the joys every mother is entitled too.
How far apart are your children?
