It’s hard to be a Fashion Star when pregnancy has you constantly exhausted. But Jessica Simpson recently took a moment to put aside the difficulties of her second pregnancy in order to chat with Ellen Degeneres…about the difficulties of her second pregnancy!
Ellen Degeneres opened her latest interview with new mom Jessica Simpson by asking the audience to provide a warm welcome for the “always-pregnant” celeb. And Ellen has a point — last year, when Jessica made an appearance on the talk show, she was very pregnant with daughter Maxwell. And now, the reality star is once again expecting, a development that came as a complete surprise to both her and her fiance. Although Jessica says the two were “very happy” with their infant daughter, she theorizes that “protection was just thrown out the window.”
While her first pregnancy was a breeze, Jessica is unfortunately not having such an easy time of it on the second go. “With Maxwell, I felt amazing. Like, I could do everything, eat everything….This time around, I’m exhausted. Eating Tums. That’s my snack of choice.”
There is one benefit to not being able to eat as much during her second pregnancy: weight maintenance. Jessica was already on Weight Watchers when she learned that she was once again expecting, but at the time, she decided she’d take a break from the diet. But cravings have not been a huge issue during this pregnancy, so the celeb has found it reasonably easy to maintain a healthy diet. She now understands just how hard it is to take off the baby weight, so she’s trying to gain a healthy amount while she’s pregnant so that she doesn’t have as much to lose after her second child is born.
Sounds like a smart plan! We hope Jessica feels better during the remainder of her pregnancy!
