Pregnant woman gains weight! Jessica Simpson, chicken of the sea, “concerns” for health

Do you remember all the fuss the time this picture came out?

“Jessica Simpson is FAAAAT!” shrieked every celebrity gossip source in print and online media.  Well no, she wasn’t.  No she wasn’t fat at all.  She was wearing a pair of hideous jeans and she wasn’t stick thin but that was about it.  She has massive knockers which tend to overbalance her figure and make her look bigger.

However since then Jessica has regularly been snapped in a variety of unflattering poses with resulting similar uproar.  She likes junk food, she seems to put on weight easily and then lose it again – BIG DEAL.  She’s currently in talks with Weightwatchers to become their US spokesperson in a deal which would net her a lot of cash (reportedly around €4 million), so she’s turning it to her advantage.

But the latest pictures of her weight gain are nothing short of – I hesitate to lend this more gravitas then it deserves –  so I’ll just say, totes ridic.  Amid a lot of hysteria that she is DAMAGING THE BABY by PUTTING HERSELF AT RISK OF DIABETES, eating Pop Tarts with butter on them or something I had a look at some of the pictures of her.

She’s absolutely huge in the baby bump department it’s true.  Some women are though and some just get away with a neat little bump.  Jessica’s not one of them.  Here she is at six months .

 The baby’s due in April apparently and here she is again last week with her fiance and his mother.  She’s reported to have put on around 40lbs (lets put this in perspective Mila Jovovich put on 70lbs), so why the baby police are “concerned” about her “alarming” weight gain is beyond me.

So huge big bump, she’s put on weight, but er she looks quite normal to me?  Not “virtually unrecognisable” as InTouch reported her to be.  Just fecking leave her alone.  Get back on her case if you must when she’s had the baby and is the face of Weightwatchers – but cut her a break for now.

What do you think?

    Good thing those crack paparazzi were able to spot her if she was virtually unrecognisable, eh? She’s got the boobs as well as the bump, but looks like a fairly normal pregnant woman to me.

    I absolutely hate it when gossip mags etc condemn women for putting on weight when they’re pregnant….as you’ve said Aisling, everyone is different. I lost weight when I was pregnant!!!! Haven’t been able to lose it since mind!!!! And then after they have the baby the mags/rags do a two page spread on how so and so has lost a whopping 2 1/2 stone and the before picture is them PREGNANT!!!!! It makes me so mad……

    She looks lovely in the bottom photo! Very happy and very pretty.

    There is so much crap around pregnancy and weight – people obsess that they put on too much weight, don’t put on enough, lose it too fast, lose it too slowly. Honestly, as if incubating a human being isn’t enough to be worrying about :S

  • Shanna says:

    How dare a pregnant woman put on weight, I mean really, what’s the world coming to?

    GODDDD. Poor Jess, she always gets a hard time – I think personally it’s her ample bosom that makes her look bigger than she is, her bump’s not freakishly enormous. Jennifer Garner’s bump is HE-UGE. Have to say, if anyone had mentioned weightwatchers to me when I was pregnant, I would have sat on them.

  • BerG says:

    Looks perfectly normal to me as well. Think she looks beautiful and is happy. A lot of that “weight” is simply water retention which is common with some pregnant women. She is probably also giving in to all her cravings as most normal people do on their first baby. I did it and it was so hard to loose weight after. It was a lesson to learn and on my second pregnancy i was a lot more sensible.

  • xgirl says:

    Oh and of course once she’s the face of WW in a few months we can look forward to the “HOW JESS GOT HER BODY BACK” headlines *mutters incoherently to self about how bodies don’t go away during pregnancy*

  • praxis says:

    I think she looks great. Is anyone looking at her partner and passing judgement on whats under his shirt or in the bag he is carrying? I think not.

  • LuLuBabe says:

    She looks completely normal. Idiots.

  • Lisa says:

    FFS. She looks like a pregnant woman with big boobs, not the Hindenberg.

  • littlesis says:

    The poor girl. Already tortured for having a fine bosom and now tortured for having a big bump. This stuff is so unhealthy for women and men alike, in their attitudes towards pregnancy and body image. Grrrrrrr.
