Jessica Simpson Struggles with Pregnancy Weight Loss

I have to confess I’m a secret Jessica Simpson fan. Although I often find it hard to embrace the personalities of most overly hyped and overpaid Hollywood stars; Jessica

Simpson, despite her billions, seems to bring humor and humanity to all that she does and says.

As the new spokesperson for Weight Watchers we expect this well looked after and richly compensated star to drop the weight in no time at all. I’m sure she has her own private chef preparing every morsel of food entering her mouth which of course conforms to her finally crafted personalized Weight Watcher’s diet plan. No doubt she also has personal trainers showing up at her doorstep 7 days a week and nannies to care for her baby at her beckon call. However, her latest comments on overindulging during pregnancy and her struggles with the pregnancy weight not coming off easily, sure hit home with me and made her all at once the relatable girlfriend next door.

The 32 year old singer, actress and designer who welcomed Maxwell Drew on May 1st admitted to USA Today her lack of knowledge regarding pregnancy pounds, “I didn’t realize it didn’t all come off with the baby.” The 5’4” Simpson’s own weight reportedly topped 170 pounds in March. Daughter Maxwell Drew weighed in 9 pounds, 13 ounces at birth.

“I let myself indulge in everything I wanted because it was the first time I was ever pregnant and I wanted to enjoy it. I wanted to be happy and eat what I wanted.”

“I’m not a supermodel,” she continued. “My body is not bouncing back like a supermodel. I’m just your everyday woman who is trying to feel good and be healthy for her daughter, her fiancé and herself.”

Although I’m sure Simpson will look svelte and fit in no time at all, it’s somewhat comforting to know that even the biggest celebrities can fight off those post pregnancy pounds like the rest of us commoners.

It’s also important to remember that nutrition comes first in addressing weight issues after pregnancy. Breastfeeding moms in particular need to make sure they consume adequate healthy calories so they can produce enough breast milk for their babies.

Tamera Mowry-Housley Says She’s Stunned By Being Pregnant

Tamera Mowry-Housley of “Sister, Sister” fame has annouced that she is pregnant with their first child after ony 2 months of trying. That’s probably more information than we need to know but sometimes first children get us more excited than expected and make us say things we probably shouldn’t say!

Tamera said that she didn’t think it would be so quick and thought it might take a bit more time to get pregnant. She stated that she had heard that sometimes it can take a while to get pregnant and so it caught her off guard. Still, she said it was a beautiful surprise and she was so excited by it.

To let her husband of just over a year, Adam Housley, know, she sent him a photo fo four positive pregnancy tests and added, “HAPPY EARLY FATHER’S DAY.” A nice give for Adam.

And speaking of four pregnancy tests, I’ll bet that the makers of those test know that the average woman must buy about 5 packs to confirm she is pregnant or not.

Congratulations to Tamera. We hope you have an easy pregnancy.

Pregnant Reese Witherspoon Feeling Round

Responding to a reporter’s comment on how great she looked, Reese Witherspoon replied, “Thanks, but frankly I’m feeling very round tonight!”

Reese is very excited about being pregnant with her third child which is due late summer or early fall. She has declined to state what the sex is of the baby nor will she give any hints at names.

Reese always looks great whether she is pregnant or not. We are sure she will continue to wear something fashionable as her pregnancy progresses.

Good luck to Reese. We hope you have an easy pregnancy!

Pregnant Sarah Michelle Gellar Seen Walking Around Santa Monica

Buffy The Vampire Slayer, otherwise known as Sarah Michelle Gellar, was seen walking through the streets of Santa Monica with a fellow pregnant friend who looked to be about 7 or 8 months along.

Sarah was wearing a tiered loosely styled black top with plenty of room for her expanding belly. The design gave way to the fact that it was a pregnancy top but it was spacious enough to hide the size of her belly. Sarah also complimented the maternity top with a half jacket in grey over her shoulders. Here jeans were pretty tight and she had on ankle high spike heal black boots.

Sarah and her husband Freddie Prince Jr. have a 2 year old daughter Charlotte.

Good luck to Sarah Michelle Geller on her pregnancy!

Robert De Niro And Wife Grace Hightower Have Daughter Via Surrogate

Robert De Niro, 68, and his wife Grace Hightower, 56, had their second child since their marraige in 1997. The girl, Helen Grace, weighed 7 pounds 2 ounces and was born via a surrogate on December 11, 2011.

Grace Hightower is known for her work previously on NYPD Blue. Robert De Niro is known for his work in the 70s in the God Father II, The Deer Hunter, and Raging Bull. More recently, he is well recognized in his role as the psycho ex-CIA officer father-in-law in Meet the Fockers.

A 16 Month Pregnancy!

9 months is too long to be pregnant for many women but if you are an elephant then you have to hang on for 16 months. Added to this is the fact that the elephant babies are a lot bigger than the average human at 250 pounds.

The elephant is an Asian elephant known as Rose-Tu and lisves at the Oregon Zoo in Portland. What is really amazing abou this is that you will need to look really close if you want to see any sign of bulging in Rose-Tu’s belly. Zoo veterinarian Mitch Finnegan states that the elephant abdominal’s organs move around to make room for the baby. It’s harder to notice with elephants and many animals than it is to see if a human is pregnant.

There are currently about 38,000 to 51,000 Asian elephants remaining in the wild. Much of their decline is due to the loss of habitat and fight for their land with humans.

Asian elephants are considered highly endangered in their range countries, threatened by habitat loss and conflict with humans. It is estimated that only around 38,000 to 51,000 remain in fragmented populations.

Rose-Tu has given birth to before while in the zoo back in 2008. At that time she almost trampled her baby to death but zookeepers intervined to ensure the health of her baby.

We wish Rose-Tu luck!

Jessica Simpson Is Just A Normal Mother

Credit: Carter Smith/ELLE.

On May 1st Jessica Simpson, 31, gave birth to her daughter, Maxwell Drew Johnson, who weighed 9 pounds and 13 ounces and measured 21.75 inches! Jessica and her fiancé Eric Johnson decided to use the name Drew because it’s Jessica’s mother’s maiden name.

It’s nice to finally see a “normal” baby name from a celebrity after a trend of celebrity baby names that sounded more like fruits, plants, cars, verbs and adjectives than anything a human being would go by. For most of us, this odd celebrity naming convention just furthers the gap between clearly privileged celebrities and the rest of us normal folks with baby’s names like “James” or “Audrey” who either stay at home with us as we try to multi-task with carpools and older kids activities or who get sent to preschool or daycare was we try to multitask at work and quickly change hats to fulltime mom when we get home for evening and weekend shift.

Jessica Simpson is one billionaire celebrity new mom that I can’t help but like. She’s very endearing and relatable with her upfront humorous honesty about everything and particularly her above average pregnancy weight gain. While most celebrity new moms often seem to the average mom like myself like some alien from outer space who look perfectly manicured throughout their effortless pregnancy, gain the perfect amount of weight in all the right places only to be placed on the cover of magazine weeks after birth with their swelt pre-pregnancy figure all intact. It does set the bar rather high for the rest of us “normal” moms without the benefit of special cooks, round the clock nannies and personal trainers and of course professional airbrushing in our photos.

It’s a bit of relief seeing a celebrity who “has it all” looking like most of us when she’s pregnant in her final trimester. She even shows she is a loyal trooper as a friend as she doesn’t shirk her bridesmaid responsibilities and dons the ill-fitting pre-ordained bridesmaid dress in her last weeks of pregnancy (which she has to know all the world will soon see in photos).

Jessica has weight gain much like I did in my first pregnancy which is basically everywhere and in a way that goes beyond flattering in the final countdown months and weeks. However, she does not hide from the cameras or shun interviews or appear embarrassed by her plus size pregnancy figure as you might expect from most former size 0 sex symbol celebrities. Instead, she appears to embrace her new full figure and weight gain with confidence, humor and grace which I think is our best take-away from her example.

I’m sure Jessica will have her enviable figure back in no time she is fulltime breastfeeding her baby in addition to recently signing a $4 million deal with Weight Watchers. (The rest of us would have been happy to have this deal for free, given the appropriate childcare, transportation, overall support for our house and older children, support for our day jobs, meal prep, housecleaning, etc) However, since this is Jessica Simpson, who I would like as my new BFF, I can’t help but support and cheer her on!

Reese Shows her Maternity Style in Simple Grey Maternity Dress

Reese Witherspoon is never one to disappoint in the fashion arena. So, we are not surprised that she wears her pregnancy well with each advancing month and season. Recently Reese was photographed with this casual but chic grey cotton short sleeve maternity dress which was just tight enough to hug her curves without being constricting or clingy. The dress appears to have side ruching which is a great style feature to look for in a maternity dress as it gives room for your belly to grow comfortably and flatters your bump. Also, the above the knee to mid thigh length is great for this time of the year and allows you a full range of footwear to choose from.

A solid color go-to maternity dress such as this, allows Reese to capitalize on accessorizing. She hits the perfect casual but thoughtful vibe with an artisan necklace, stacked but understated bracelets, a fabulous big leather saddlebag to protect that bump from paparazzi, simple gold hoop earrings and oversized sunglasses. Reese looks glam with a simple low rise ponytail and little or no makeup.

Get a similar look as Reese with Majamas Sleepy Dress. This simple but stylish maternity and nursing dress can be worn throughout pregnancy and beyond. It can be dressed up with footwear and accessories for any social venue. Majamas originally named it the Sleepy Dress because it has built in bust support and completely discreet nursing access. The Sleepy Dress is the perfect t 24 hour dress for a new mom to lounge in, take care of her baby, nurse, sleep and then greet well-wishers without having to change or grab a robe for modesty. The extra spandex stretch and empire cut in this everyday dress allows you to wear it comfortably for maternity as well.

Kourtney Kardashian Caught In Maternity Bikini!
