As we discussed yesterday, Jessica Simpson finally debuted baby Ace Knute on the cover of this week’s Us Weekly. Ace is two months old, so Jessica waited much longer with Ace than she did with Maxwell’s People Mag cover. Some sources claimed that Jessica wanted to do another People Mag cover with Ace, but that People wasn’t interested in paying her for the second round of baby pics. Now Page Six says that Jessica went to Us Weekly and that they paid her “as much as $100,000” for Ace’s photos. I think she got $3 million for Maxwell’s pics, so this was definitely a “step down” as far as media prestige and money. Thankfully, Us Weekly also did an exclusive interview with Jessica and we have more excerpts. Yesterday, we learned that Jessica had a C-section with Ace Knute (she had one with Maxwell too). Today we learn that Jessica doesn’t care for people who bully and body-shame pregnant women:
Bullying pregnant women: “I will never understand why people give pregnant women such a hard time. We are creating a human life: I think we get every excuse in the world to eat a doughnut! It’s very hurtful, especially when you’re so emotional and going through all of these hormonal changes. I felt for Kim [Kardashian] — I knew exactly what she was going through.”
She’s all boob: “I am just one of those pregnant women who gains a lot of weight. I have really big boobs. I have my curves. Even trying as hard as I did with Ace, I still gained.”
Eric helped her through it: “I had a good support system. Eric has always appreciated my body.”
On Ace: “People say he looks like me. The moment he came out, I thought, He’s going to have a really strong personality, but he’s going to be a little bit more sensitive.”
On Eric: “He is beyond any father that has ever existed. I can honestly say that I have not had to change many diapers. At the same time, he makes me feel like I’m an incredible mom and still a great lover and woman.”
Wedding plans: “We now have a where and a when. Everybody has just been so anxious for us to get married – including us. And everyone has watched our love develop throughout becoming parents. When we actually do get married, it will be that much more intimate and beautiful.”

Of course she still gained weight when she was pregnant. You are supposed to gain weight! But she did seem to have a much easier pregnancy with Ace, probably because she wasn’t gobbling down slutty brownies every two seconds. That being said, I agree with her. She was always going to get big all over with her pregnancies – that’s just her body type, and that was just Kim Kardashian’s body type too. Not every woman can carry like Gisele!
What are the thoughts on all of her quotes about Eric? On one side, I’m happy for her that she has such a loving and supportive partner. On the other side… what else does he have to do? I mean, it’s not like he has a lot going on. Of course he’s changing diapers. That’s all he has going on other than golf and impregnating her again.
