Jessica Simpson Talks Contractions & Baby Kicking on 'Ellen'

Jessica Simpson holds her baby bump while making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an episode airing Tuesday (March 13).

“I have some weeks [to go],” the 31-year-old Fashion Star mentor told Ellen when asked about her due date. “I really do. It’s not like tomorrow.”

“[But] I had contractions last night and I freaked out a little bit. You know those Braxton Hicks things,” Jess added. “It’s like these contractions that pregnant woman have towards the end. It prepares your body for delivery. I’m prepared. It’s scary. It’s like, ‘Oh God, this can happen right now.’”

Jessica also shared that the baby – she and fiance Eric Johnson are expecting a daughter – has been kicking when they call her by her name (which they’re not revealing until she’s born).

Also pictured inside: Eric picking up some food from Baja Fresh in L.A. over the weekend and Jess heading to her parents’ house in Encino in the passenger seat of her friend’s car.

    Braxton Hicks contractions when your as far along as Jessica is are normal it’s when they come at 5-6 months that its dangerous for mother and baby. why do you think Braxton Hicks are called false labor for being so far along and carrying such a large baby Jessica looks wonderful and so excited to meet her daughter

  • rainy

    It is hard to believe that this vapid twit runs a billion dollar fashion business. If she is that intelligent, why hide it being an inane, annoying, vapid idiot?

  • Allucy

    OMG, she`s huge! only now i understand haw much photoshoped was her nude/pregnant cover that was released earlier this month. she probably weights more than 100 kilos and that`s definitely not ok!

  • Oh Yeah

    Is she Serious with all this Weight gain? Tell me she is having a Twin and I will understand.

  • Jenna

    She is enormous. Seriously, I’ve never seen a pregnant woman who was as huge as her. That can’t be healthy. And it’s not going to be easy to loose all that unnecessary weight.

  • Ina

    I know a lot of women who have gained un-imaginable amounts of weight while pregnant, it’s not unusual & most of it is probably water anyway. She’ll lose the weight in no time I’m sure, she’s changed her body so many times before, she can do it again. As long as she’s happy who cares anyway? She’s glowing, she’s happy!

  • jj

    I hope her baby comes out with the nose of a pig. I really do. Then everyone will know it comes from a hog.

  • Chappy

    The picture for the magazoine was taken, as covers are taken, one, two months ago.
    Jessica Simpson is very luckuy money wise. She need not record another dud cd or mke another dud movie. Her brand has a life of its own.
    She is happy. A fairly good person , just made one big mistake in treating per her family’s wishes, Nick like a tool.

    Karma back at her because she had better not marry that no good, nothing jobless Eric Johnson.
    Now, that is a tool.

    shut up people she’s not having twins she’s having a single 10lb baby girl she only looks so huge because she’s a petite girl at 8lbs she’s probably gained about 60lbs which is 27 kilos and will gain about 75 by delivery which is 34.09 kilos leave her alone all that matters is her and her baby girl are heathy and that’s the case. @Allucy those pics for Elle magazine were taken in January and all magazines are retouched especially if the female star posing is pregnant and has acne related to pregnancy as Jessica does because she’s had acne issues her entire career. if she were taller she wouldn’t look as big and most of the weight a woman gains during pregnancy isn’t actually the baby/babies it’s fat Muscle tissue and water it would look different on a taller girl Joely Richardson who is 5’10″ gained about the same when she was pregnant with her daughter Daisy in 1991/1992 and because of her body type didn’t look as big as Jessica does and I believe Daisy was 11lbs 8oz at birth and 21 inches long if you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all

  • Sarah.

    She said she’s not having twins, maybe just a heavy baby? Ouch. I do think it’s funny how some women get really big like Jessica and some just don’t. Well as long as they are healthy, who cares. :)

  • Anne


    Because she doesn’t. She just sold her name.

  • Katherine

    You’re only supposed to gain 25-30 lbs when you’re pregnant.

  • 12know

    If Jessica still has another month to go, that baby is going to be huge. She’ll definitely by delivering by c-section, no doubt about it. No woman can birth a 10 pound+ baby naturally and live to tell about it. Another thing: I wonder if Jessica is having gestational diabetes. Women with that condition tend to have large babies. It also means that later on in life, Jessica could become diabetic, especially if diabetes runs in her family.

  • hey

    Ashlee wasn’t nearly this big when she was pregnant. Geez, Jessica, control yourself–your body used to be the only way you made money.

  • Courtney

    Ashlee is a different bodytype and 2.5 inches taller so she carried pregnancy differently Jessica doesn’t have gestational diabetes some women just naturally have big babies and you can birth a 10lb baby vaginally there wasn’t always cesarean sections Dolly Sinatra delivered a 13lb 8oz boy vaginally on december 12th 1915 with no drugs on the floor in her mothers kitchen and lived to tell about it. though because of the use of forcepts Frank’s left ear drum was puntured and there was a scar on his cheek. some of you are heartless at best Jessica and her baby girl are healthy if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all

  • Chauncy

    @Courtney: She is a frumy, ugly, no talent, pimple faced, drunken, skanky, whore, pig, hog, who will have an ugly, pimple faced pig baby.

  • Chauncy

    @Courtney: saying something nice, she is a pretty fat hog who should be in the gutter with her ugly boyfriend.

  • hotflash

    She should’ve kept a low profile. Now she goes onstage and raves about pregnant sex. Do we need to know that from someone who’s not married and bragging about it. Enough already. (I’m sure Courtney the expert wil disagree….whatever) Amazing who’s famous these days. Everyone has such low expectations.
