Month: January 2013
During the seven months between her two pregnancies, Jessica Simpson was hard at work on the set of NBC’s Fashion Star. In a sneak peek from season 2 of the NBC series — exclusive to Us Weekly — the new mom shows off her slim post-baby body after welcoming daughter Maxwell in May 2012.
Simpson, 32, serves with John Varvatos and Nicole Richie as mentors to contestants on the reality competition show. Louise Roe has also replaced Elle Macpherson as host for season 2, which premieres on March 8 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
After shedding 70 pounds with the help of Weight Watchers following her first pregnancy, Simpson flaunted her lean legs and slim waist on set in a short coral dress, black pumps and skinny black belt. In another shot, Simpson showed off her cleavage in a long black dress with a plunging neckline.
During filming, a source tells Us that Simpson would often bring daughter Maxwell with her to set — leaving her little girl with Grandma Tina Simpson when the cameras rolled. “Maxwell is a total mommy’s girl,” the source explained. “She just wants to be held by Jessica.”
Added a show source: “Jess is really cute with Max. The baby is adorable and never disruptive.”
Soon she’ll have two tykes underfoot! Us Weekly exclusively revealed in November that Simpson is expecting her second child with fiance Eric Johnson, and the star confirmed the news herself on Christmas Day. During an interview on The Tonight Show on Jan. 15, Simpson admitted she was “extremely shocked” to find out she was pregnant again.
“Because I was going through a lot of hormonal changes, trying to get back to the old, vibrant Jessica,” she explained. “You know, it was kind of like a one-night stand. And it happened, all over again!”
The second-time mom-to-be is also set to try her hand at non-reality TV in an NBC sitcom pilot inspired by her own life. In a statement Jan. 15, Simpson said, “I often find myself thinking that no one could ever make up the things that actually happen in my life, so between the real life elements and a great team of writers, I think we’ll have people laughing.”
Congratulations! According to a new report, Jessica Simpson is expecting a baby boy!
Jessica Simpson and her hunky fiance Eric Johnson better start painting their nursery blue because according to a new report, they have a baby boy on the way! Unfortunately, they’re going to have to get extra creative with the baby’s name because they already handed their favorite boy name over to their daughter, Maxwell Drew Johnson.
“It’s Jessica’s dream come true, she prayed she was having a boy. She found out this week after a check-up at the doctor, who asked her if she wanted to know the sex of the baby. Jessica immediately said yes and when the doctor told her it was a boy she screamed with joy. She was so happy that Maxwell is getting a little brother because that’s something she always wanted when she was growing up,” an insider tells Radar Online.
This is so great for Jess! Now she’ll have one boy and one girl. But we wonder what they’ll name the new baby!
“Jessica and Eric are so excited and have started going through names, but they haven’t settled on one just yet. It’s just a pity their favorite boys name went to their daughter first,” the source added.
Happy Happy Birthday!! :)

“I felt really hot, and I thought I deserved a Kim Kardashian moment, you know? I was really feeling it, like, ‘Oh, my bump looks cute. I’m going to share that,’” the Fashion Star mentor quipped during an appearance on Tuesday’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
But Simpson, 32, says her second pregnancy has been anything but a feel-good time. She’s been nauseated and not having the same sort of cravings as when she was expecting daughter Maxwell Drew, who’s now 8 months old and beginning to crawl.
“I’ve been really, really sick so I can’t wait to actually be able to crave something like I did in my first pregnancy,” the singer and actress explains. “I’m due in the summer so I still have a ways to go — hopefully I start feeling better.”
That morning sickness may be a good thing for the Weight Watchers spokeswoman. Simpson says she gained “a lot more” than her doctors recommended the first go-round, but this time she hopes to eat healthier and not go too crazy.
“I didn’t really make any healthy, good decisions,” she says of her first pregnancy. “The last time I ate everything in sight. I was really happy to be pregnant and I just didn’t even step on the scale. I was the person who turned around and said, ‘Just don’t tell me, I’m having fun.’”
“I guess I just didn’t realize you could gain that much weight that quickly,” Simpson explains. “I had fun doing it but once I had Maxwell I realized that it all wasn’t water weight and I had to really work hard. In four months I lost over 50 pounds.”
The second pregnancy, she added, was not planned and surprised both her and fiancé Eric Johnson, whom she joked was “really proud” that it happened all over again so quickly.
“Apparently it was a part of God’s plan for my life,” Simpson says with a laugh. “I was extremely shocked. I was shocked because I was going through a lot of hormonal changes trying to get back to the old, vibrant Jessica. And you know, it was kind of like a one-night stand. And it happened … all over again!”
Her much-anticipated wedding, she says, just keeps getting pushed back.
“We’ve had two different wedding dates, but he keeps knocking me up,” Simpson wisecracks. “I’m doing it very backwards, I know! I’ll just keep my legs crossed this time.”
I could not be more thrilled. Missed seeing Jessica on TV and knowing her sense of humor she will make a lot of headlines tomorrow tehee :) I can’t wait, I will probably be able to watch it tomorrow but better late than never! I will also try to have the video up asap :) Excited!
Jessica Simpson is used to having her life play out in the media, but now she’s going to take her real-life adventures and turn them into a pilot for NBC.
“I often find myself thinking that no one could ever make up the things that actually happen in my life – so between the real-life elements and a great team of writers, I think we’ll have people laughing!” Simpson, 32, tells the Hollywood Reporter.
Simpson is teaming up with NBC and Fashion Star producer Electus for the scripted pilot, which they hope will be picked up and made into a series. Electus founder and chairman Ben Silverman calls Simpson “truly a modern-day Lucy with incredible comedic chops.”
Of course, Simpson is no stranger to a TV show based on her life. She and former husband Nick Lachey starred on the massively popular MTV reality show, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, which ran from 2003 to 2005.
This won’t be Simpson’s first time at bat at a pilot. She played a pop star named Jessica who attempted to become a news anchor on an ABC pilot in 2004, though the endeavor never made it to series.
Meanwhile, Simpson has some dramatic events coming up that could make for some exciting TV plotlines: She is pregnant with her second child and is engaged to former football star Eric Johnson.
These are just too precious! Little Maxwell with mommy Jessica – I love these :) Click below to enlarge.
