First-time mom-to-be CaCee Cobb is picking up a few parenting tips from her pregnant BFF Jessica Simpson, who is expecting her second child with fiance Eric Johnson in July. “Jessica’s a great mom,” Cobb told Us Weekly during an Exes event at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood May 6. “It’s kind of crazy to see her because she’s further along than I am and she’s chasing around Maxwell, who just turned 1 and is about to walk any day now.”
“She’s got me beat,” Cobb, 35, said of the Fashion Star mentor. “Just watching her, I’m in awe because she makes it look easy — but it’s not, I can tell!”
Even before she married actor Donald Faison late last year, Simpson’s former personal assistant had been eager to start a family. “Right when we decided we wanted to get married, we realized we wanted to have a baby. We were very lucky, though — we did it all in one weekend,” Faison told Us. “We tried so hard before we got married and it didn’t work.”
“Well, before you say we tried so hard, there are a lot of people out there that tried really hard,” Cobb interjected. “We just had a sh-tload of sex and it wasn’t happening.” The spouses learned they were pregnant on Dec. 16, just one day after tying the knot. “It was awesome!” Faison said.
Cobb, who is due in August, joked that she would have her baby “tomorrow if I could.” Unlike some women, “I like being pregnant,” she admitted. “I hate to say it because some people are like, ‘There’s no way!’ But I actually enjoy it so far.”
The former Price of Beauty star added that she wants to try for another baby soon after giving birth to her first.
“I like it,” Cobb told Us. “I like the attention, too! I like him waiting on me hand and foot.”
