Now that Jessica Simpson has finally confirmed that she is pregnant, the is she or isn’t she talk can go to rest. But that won’t take the attention off of Jessica’s growing baby bump and evident weight gain.
The 31-year-old fashion designer and singer opens up to Lucky magazine’s December issue where she discusses her calmness with gaining weight.
“Everybody fluctuates, but I’m open about my weight and I’m still confident,” the mom-to-be tells Lucky. “I didn’t cry about it too much.”
Simpson adds: “I like the way I look.”
Jessica even feels that her weight has strengthened her billion-dollar clothing empire. “I got so much scrutiny for putting on extra pounds, but I think that the decision not to make myself anorexic was actually great for branding,” she explains. “Because when you’re really, really skinny, not everybody can relate to you.”
And just because Simpson is pregnant, don’t expect her to rush down the aisle with fiance Eric Johnson. “I haven’t started shopping for our wedding yet,” she admits. “When I got engaged, everyone thought I would get married immediately, but I have not put a single dress on, and by the time this comes out I will not be married! We’re just enjoying being engaged right now — and that’s honest.”
