Jessica Simpson on Pregnancy Weight Criticism: It's Ridiculous!

Jessica Simpson on Pregnancy Weight Criticism: It's Ridiculous!

Jessica Simpson shows off her amazing post-baby body on the cover of Redbook magazine’s February 2014 issue, on newsstands January 14.

Here’s what the 33-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On getting criticized for her pregnancy weight: “I never listen to it, no matter who the press talks about when they’re pregnant. It’s 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 she’s healthy. I wasn’t going to let the media take away from what was one of the happiest times in my life.”

On what will keep her marriage to Eric Johnson healthy: “I’ve 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 doesn’t hurt that Eric is one of the hottest men I¹ve ever seen and he looks amazing naked!”

On her high-waisted 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?”

Also pictured inside: Jessica appearing on Good Morning America on Tuesday (January 7) in New York City.

    She’s right about marriage. You and the other person can love each other but love is not all that matters. You have to have the same goals in life and know what each other want 10 15 years down the road. It amazes me how a lot of couple don’t talk about their wants and needs and go into marriage based on “we love each other, we can’t live without each other”.

    Why this past deckades bleached blond ghost is still here? Noone thinks so highschool mean girl snobic anymore, times have changed, she is forever, for me, burned in stone like mean girl and that look she has just aprooves she’s still at that..

  • druggie

    Has she taken up her drugs?? The childish pics look amazing.

  • Amy

    She was criticized during her pregnancy because she was eating junk food. That type of food doesn’t provide any nutritional benefit for your baby. She should have been eating bigger portions of healthy food.

  • Mary

    Does she have nothing else going on her life anymore but her weight? I find everything about her fake and plastic. She has on tv, in movies, and had a singing career. Now she’s just a WW spokesperson.

  • Ava

    If Kim K gave these same sentiments, in regards to the pregnancy issue, I would have a bit more respect for her. I love that Jessica says that no one should criticize any pregnant woman. It’s just something you don’t do. I love that she said the press can’t take away her happiness. Kim, on the other hand, is deeply affected by anything the press says. And even though I feel so badly for her at times, I wish she would just own up the way Jessica Simpson has. Instead, she seeks “revenge” by posting body pics and these selfies and it makes you wonder – who are you trying to prove? The press….or you?

  • mar

    She has the worst body. Linebacker up top, weird mid section and man legs.

  • jeanie

    She has a matronly body. Looks like it is the body of a post-menopausal woman.

  • British Latin American

    To me she will always be a farty fat girl with a bad dye job.
