Jessica Simpson, 31, is being criticized for gaining too much weight while pregnant, despite her publicly claiming that she has only "put on 40 pounds."

Simpson's weight was a topic on The View Tuesday with Joy Behar bashing the Fashion Star judge for getting "fat" and putting on more than the recommended 25 pounds. However, Joy's fellow View host Whoopi Goldberg jumped in to defend Jessica, revealing that when she was pregnant she went from 119 pounds to 210 pounds.

So what is normal? Lets look where other celebrity moms rank on the weight gain scale.

Stars like Kate Hudson and Kendra Wilkinson have been vocal in discussing that they packed on upwards of 60 pounds while pregnant with their first child. Models Miranda Kerr and Gisele seem to have been on the lower end.

Check out the gallery above to see stars sound off (or not) on their pregnancy pound woes. Also, hear Miranda tell Celebuzz how she is keeping the weight off right here:

    Ms. Simpson is my inspiration. I am also 31 and pregnant with my first baby, and struggling with weight gain. I have gained more than what is "normal" as well. I am 7 months, and have already put on 40 lbs. By reading about Ms.Simpson, I don't feel so bad.

    well I actually thank Celebuzz for showing this. I think media needs to back off of Jessica & let her enjoy her last weeks as pregnant. To not allow that is bullying on th media part. I don't remember another celeb that the media has felt game on & lets trash her. This shoudl be Jessica's time to be happy & share whatever she wants to share. I am sickened by all of this negativity towards a woman bearing a child. Lets leave this woman alone & realize in the real world most of us have been where she is at right now. WE want & should want her to have a healthy baby & for her to be happy.

    @annonymous shut up gaining over 60lbs in your first pregnancy or first success one isn't disgusting at all especially when you consider Jessica is suffering from Polyhydramnios which is a serious often deadly complication and considering she's got about 2 weeks left till her April 20th due date which was moved forward from May 11th when that was discovered buzz off. my mom who is a simillar height and bodytype as Jess gained 65lbs when she was pregnant with me due to complications and I was perfectly healthy at birth as I'm sure Jess's baby will be

    Jessica already has a weight watchers endorcement she signed in december of 11and she's carrying excess amniotic fluid and a baby that's gonna be about 10lbs at birth. leave her alone first time pregnant women or women in their first successful pregnancy after a loss tend to gain more than the recomended 25-35lbs for a single baby and 37-54 for twins Mariah Carey for example gained more than 80lbs with her twins because of all the complications she had and each baby being over 6lbs when they were born 5 weeks early. by the way Jessica is 5ft 3.5in quit critizing her Joanne Woodward once admitted that she at 5ft 4in gained 73lbs when she was pregnant with her first daughter Eleanor partly steaming from deppression after a prior miscarriage and she lost the weight in 9 months because of nursing and at the end her & Paul Newman were in Isreal for him to film the movie Exodus

    Let her be PREGNANT already….What makes this so sad is I can relate to all these mean comments people are saying. Has anyone considered she wants a healthy baby and doesnt care at what may happen to her body . I myself since a teenager struggled with my weight issues. When I was eighteen years old i had my first child at that time in my life i was holding a steady (averagefor me) at 140 -150 lbs at 5’ the end of my pregnacy i weighed in at 218lbs. Then less than a year later my son came along an 3 more to follow all pregnacies weighing in between 190 and 220.Lets put it this way I had 5 kids in 7 years, I thought I was dooooomed damage done . After number 5 I went to the gym to try and make some of it disapppear and asked what my goal weight would be I said 115lbs. He made a big deal about how I was 185 pounds after my5th child hitting that goal would probably not happen for me, I was crushed. I took determination and will, I went back to work and worked out at home.Not even 1 YEAR later I had hit my GOAL. YUP I am a proud 33 year old mom of 5 beautiful (ages15-8)kids weighing in at 112!Size 3 kept it off for 7 years now and loving it BOOya baby. I did it all on my own no diet plans or meals just grabbed a hold myself and DID IT! JESSICA looks beautiful and people saying awful thingslike that about her is wrong. Would people be more happier with her looking sick and frail (like someother prego actresses lol) all the time. She will bounce back to her selfsoon enough… let her enjoy her pregnacy and eat whatever she wants (isnt that some of the fun being pregnant?) she doesnt seem too worried so y is everyone else?? Not to be full of myself but i think I did a dam good job . After 5 kids I am one good looking mommy lol< so if mylittle body could Take it and hit goal weight after all that…. she will be a looking likeher self soon enough . Its awesome shes at not letting this get to her. She has put her childs needs in front of her own and that is what will make a wonderful caring MOTHER

    "I did gain a lot of weight – let’s say more than 25 pounds. I ate whatever I wanted." Are you kidding me? More than 25 pounds is completely ok it's the least you can gain! This twisted body image even during such think as pregnancy makes me sick. I'm sure Adriana ate whatever she wanted. So true as she only drinks water a week before show - and doesn't eat. Why men are so into her? Not healthy.

    Leave Jess alone! I'm only 5' tall and gained 40 pounds with my daughter and I was a TANK. It really shows when you're tiny! Who cares anyways, it'll get her a weight watchers endorsement.
