Jessica Simpson Responds to Pregnancy Weight Haters in Redbook
Look who is featured on the cover of the February issue of Redbook magazine - a slimmed down Jessica Simpson! This is the first magazine cover she’s been featured on since the birth of her son Ace.
In the issue she tackles her pregnancy weight critics, her relationship with Eric Johnson and those infamous mom jeans she wore.
On what it felt like when the press attacked her weight: “I never listen to it, no matter who the press talks about when they¹re pregnant. It¹s ridiculous and unfair. I think any woman who is pregnant and creating a life is pretty much entitled to eat whatever she wants as long as she¹s healthy. I wasn¹t going to let the media take away from what was one of the happiest times in my life.”
On the infamous high-waisted blue jeans: “What’s so unbelievable is that I was probably at least 15 pounds smaller than I am right now. What’s more unbelievable is that the press could create something like that out of a pair of jeans…what woman wants to be brought down for wearing a pair of jeans?”
On what will keep her upcoming marriage to Eric Johnson healthy in the long run? “I¹ve learned that sometimes love is not enough. You can have a soul mate and be madly in love with that person, but it¹s not necessarily enough. I think you have to have personalities that mesh well. You have to be the yin to their yang. You also have to be open to figuring things out together and communicating even when it¹s the last thing you want to do. I have to admit, it doesn¹t hurt that Eric is one of the hottest men I¹ve ever seen and he looks amazing naked!”
Eric and Jessica are planning on a summer wedding.
