  • Jessica Simpson Pregnant With Baby Number 2!

    Yes, Jessica Simpson is indeed pregnant again with her second child, just seven months after welcoming daughter Maxwell. She also managed to lose 60 pounds of babyweight following her pregnancy while on a healthy diet and collecting $4 million from a Weight Watchers are their celebrity sponsor. I would say all in all she had a very productive 7 months!

    Many people might think, wow, what a waste to lose all that weight just to gain it back again in another pregnancy. However, Dieticians and Obstetrians would disagree since starting her pregnancy at a lower heathy weight gives her a far greater chance of a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Just by getting her body in the healthy weight range she has lowered her change of gestational diabetes and preclasmia. Also, I’m sure her hard work will not be thrown out the window during this pregnancy as she will no doubt be exercising more and paying more attention to her diet and pregnancy weight gain.

    One of the things I love about Jessica Simpson is that she is so down to earth. We know friends all the time (maybe even ourselves) who gain more the recommended weight during pregnancy or who get pregnant unexpectantly or very quickly after having a baby. Jessica is not above admitting all of these things happen to her as well and she just seems to take it in stride with a smile and a sense of humor, showing us that she is the “girl next door.”

    I expect Jessica will have a beautiful and fun pregnancy and I look forward to following her maternity fashion choices. We wish her and her family all the best!

  • 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.

  • Jessica Simpson Is Just A Normal Mother

    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!

  • Jessica Simpson Wears Flattering Maternity Clothes

    Fashion mogul Jessica Simpson has consistently chosen stylish and flattering maternity looks throughout her pregnancy, so we are always happy to get fashion tips from her. She recently told US Weekly about some of the hottest looks for warmer weather, stating, "Airy peasant tops paired with denim shorts are a spring staple. Floral and lace details add a romantic, flirty feeling to a daytime outfit." We love this advice, as a great floral print and hints of lace create a pretty and feminine look. Try the Maternal America Crochet Top, which combines a gorgeous print with a unique crocheted detail. The flowy top falls over one’s bump beautifully and looks great paired with the Megan Denim Maternity Shorts, also from Maternal America. For a dress with a flirty and floral look, try Japanese Weekend’s Double Neck Maternity/Nursing Dress. The pretty pink print is very eye catching, and we love the versatility that the double cross over style provides for both maternity and nursing.

    For now, Jessica has been sticking with more wintery hues, including a gorgeous LBD that she wore out on a date night earlier this week. The dress featured a lace print so that she was able to incorporate some of that feminine detail which she loves. For an option that features a pretty lace touch, try Japanese Weekend’s Front Over Lace Dress. The embellishment at the empire waist is very figure flattering and the lace overlay is right on trend. Due the beginning of May, we cannot wait to see more maternity fashion from Jessica!

  • BelaBumBum Maternity and Nursing Sleepwear

    Every expecting and new mom wants to be comfortable during and after pregnancy, and having that perfect loungewear outfit is a must. Back in October, the very talented singer Lily Allen tweeted a picture of herself looking cute and cozy in BelaBumBum’s loungewear a month before she gave birth. Now, months later, she can still wear their renowned loungewear as it is designed for both pregnancy and nursing. Many celebrities, including Halle Berry, Milla Jojovich, Alicia Keys, and Jessica Simpson are huge fans of BelaBumBum’s stylish and comfortable designs, and we are sure you will love them just as much.

    Made of superb material, BelaBumBum’s loungewear is always incredibly soft and feel great against one’s skin. For the perfect loungewear set, try the Ariel Lacey Nursing/Maternity Pajamas. The super soft Pima cotton top and bottoms are trimmed with delicate lace so one is sure to look as good as one feels. The lace accent also highlights an empire waist, creating a very flattering shape. Pull down capability provides easy nursing access, making this the perfect choice for both maternity and nursing wear. Wear it all night to sleep in as well as during the day when one just wants something comfy and cute to lounge in. Another BelaBumBum favorite is the Lotus Nursing Chemise. With soft pearl lace accents around the hem and bust, a beautiful contrast is created against the black nightie. It has plenty of stretch and room to be worn during pregnancy and has easy to use nursing clips for postpartum wear. Stylish, sexy, and oh so comfy, it is the perfect option for new and expectant mothers!

    Whether one is looking for a gift for an expecting mother or simply wanting to treat oneself to a well deserved gift, BelaBumBum’s loungewear is an excellent choice for pregnant and new moms everywhere.

  • Jessica Simpson Would Look Great In Nursing Clothes

    With an entire fashion empire under her belt, we always have high expectations for Jessica Simpson’s maternity wardrobe. She has never disappointed! All her maternity clothing is figure flattering and super stylish. This week she displayed her love of maxi dresses as well as showcasing some of the season’s hottest trends.

    Just yesterday, Jessica looked radiant strolling arm in arm with her sexy fiancé Eric Johnson after a sweet pizza date night. She wore a heather gray maxi dress paired with a beautiful tie-dye jacket and a long necklace. The maxi dress had a gentle V-neck that is flattering and subtly sexy. Throwing the jacket over adds warmth as well as being figure flattering, and the tie-dye look is right on trend.

    The day before, the happy couple shared a lunch date during which Jessica showcased another great maxi dress. The dress featured a striped tribal print, one of the biggest trends this season. She paired with a long cozy sweater and chunky heels. If you have a pair of heels that you love, they look great with a maxi dress as they create an elongating and slimming look. We love how comfortable she looks while still maintaining a high level of style.

    Maxi dresses are a great option for expectant mothers. They are comfortable and highlight one’s baby bump beautifully. Easily dressed up or down, they work well for a variety of occasions. The Japanese Weekend Tribal Print Maxi Maternity Dress is a great choice. Its beautiful green, yellow, and red tribal print is refreshing and stylish, and looks great paired with a jeans jacket for a casual look or a cute black cardigan. The empire waist design is also incredibly figure flattering. 1 in the Oven’s Beach Maternity Nursing Dress is another fabulous choice. The gauze fabric is super soft and lightweight, and the dainty buttons at the bust provide easy nursing access. Pair it with a chunky sweater for a look like Jessica’s!

  • Pregnant Celibrities and Their Maternity Clothes

    This week has been an exciting one for many pregnant celebrity mamas, and they are eager to share their joy with the rest of the world. The gorgeous and glowing Jessica Simpson appeared on the Rachel Ray Show yesterday, and was very happy to discuss her pregnancy. When she felt her baby move for the first time, she was overcome with emotion. “I felt [the baby] move the other day for the first time and I had big crocodile tears. It was the coolest thing ever. It did a flip or something. I was like, ‘There it went. It’s there, it’s really there.’” We can feel her joyful emotions, and Jessica said she has been queen of the waterworks during her pregnancy, stating that she has been crying “at the drop of a hat”. She adds that, “Even a great soufflé would make me cry.” Wearing a fitted animal print dress and black tights, Jessica looked ready absolutely stunning.

    Another star sharing about her pregnancy this week is the beautiful Jennifer Garner. Gracing the cover of InStyle magazine, Jennifer spoke to them about some of the difficulties pregnancy can bring. She says that she had nausea during her first trimester, and some strange food cravings. She stated, "My kids had never seen Doritos before. They would say, 'Mom, where did you get that orange chip? I really want that’”. We love her adorable family and know the next baby will be just as sweet. Jennifer also spoke of her pregnancy weight gain. “I wish I was one of those cute pregnant girls who wear skinny jeans throughout their pregnancies. But I just gain weight.” We appreciate her candidness, and think that she looks gorgeous in everything she wears! We look forward to the new babies that will be arriving soon!

  • Jessica Simpson and Hillary Duff Pictures of the Week

    With the holidays just around the corner, stars have been stepping out for many events and we are loving the clothing we see! This past week, some of our favorite mommies to be rocked the red carpets in gorgeous maternity clothing, showing off their burgeoning baby bumps.

    At the Footwear News Achievement Awards, the beautiful Jessica Simpson received recognition for her own fabulous footwear designs. Although her footwear collection is gorgeous, it was her stunning outfit that everyone was commenting on. She looked beautiful deep crimson wrap dress. The wrap style accented her curves perfectly, accentuating her hourglass figure and showing off her baby bump. We loved it! For a dress that creates a similar shape, try Maternal America’s Front Tie Keyhole Dress. The V-neck elongates one’s body, creating a longer and leaner look while the V-neck crossover design flatters by accenting the smallest part of one’s body. Pair it with gold heels for a night on the town, or nude pumps for a day at the office.

    Another one of our favorite expectant mothers, Hilary Duff, looked beautiful at a holiday soiree with her sister this past week. Hilary always keeps her maternity looks young and fresh while ensuring she is comfortable. Here she paired skinny jeans and heels with a V-neck faux wrap top that was very flattering. This look works well for both during and after pregnancy, as it camouflages one’s bump. The Criss Cross Maternity/Nursing Top from Maternal America has the same great versatility as Hilary’s top. To dress it up, follow Hilary’s lead with skinny jeans and heels, but for casual daytime usage wear it with dark bootcut jeans and cute white sneakers.

    We cannot wait to see what else these soon to be first time mothers will wear!

  • Jessica Simpson Is Pregnant! -- "It's true – I'm going to be a mummy!”

    Congratulations to the lovely Jessica Simpson and her tall and sexy fiancé Eric Johnson on the recent announcement of their pregnancy! Rumors had been circulating for quite some time regarding whether or not Jessica was pregnant, when the singer and business-woman tweeted on October 31st, “It's true – I'm going to be a mummy!” Jessica has often spoken of her desire to be a mother, and we could not be happier that her dream is coming true.

    As an incredibly successful fashion designer, Jessica’s pregnancy means that she gets to show off her great fashion sense in a whole new arena---maternity clothing! For a recent evening out, she wore a loose-fitting animal print top with sexy jeans shorts and great black heels. The shorts work great, since she paired them with a looser top to balance the proportion. Animal print is very popular this year, and Olian’s ¾ Length Sleeve Animal Print Maternity Dress is a great way to wear it. For a recent shopping day in New York City, Jessica continued the animal print trend with a great structured black and leopard print leather jacket, pairing it with a fitted black tank, black leggings, and knee-high boots. This look is the perfect combination between comfort and style, as the stretchy top and leggings are ultra-comfy and the jacket creates a beautiful and flattering silhouette. Try Bella Band Essential’s Everyday Cami and Japanese Weekend’s Over the Belly Maternity Leggings for an equally comfy look. A great cropped motorcycle jacket adds edge and a flattering shape.

    For a more formal event, the launch of her tween clothing line, Jessica wanted to maintain a high level of comfort while look chic and fashionable. She hit her mark, sporting a long-sleeve black tunic, black tights, and dressing it up with fabulous jewelry. Adding statement earrings, a great ring, or a bold necklace to any outfit will instantly dress it up and take it to the next level, while still allowing one to maintain one’s comfort.

    We are so happy for the beautiful couple, and are eagerly awaiting the birth of their child!
