Jessica Simpson LOVES being pregnant. So much in fact, that even though she hasn’t delivered her baby yet, she already wants more!
“Pregnancy was meant for me – it really was,” the Fashion Star mentor and Beauty Mint spokesperson tells PEOPLE. “I can’t wait to have more kids. I love being pregnant. I have such an incredible connection with myself and with my body that I’ve never had before.”
Simpson, 31, also says pregnancy has been a spiritual time, too.
“Just knowing that you’re creating a life is such a spiritual thing,” she says. “Everything is growing, but you’re making a life. It’s pretty cool.”
On the flipside, Simpson has discovered not all the perks of pregnancy are true either.
“People always say that pregnant women have a glow,” she says. “And I say it’s because you’re sweating to death. I think they just tell pregnant women they’re glowing to make them feel good about themselves, because everything makes them a little bit emotional.”
Contributing to the experience is having her fiancé Eric Johnson at her side every step of the way.
“When I’m tired, I make Eric rub me,” she says. “Eric is very, very supportive. We’re both extremely excited. He’s been to every doctor’s appointment with me. We just love it. We can’t believe we get to do this, and we get to do it together. We’re going to be a rock star family!”
Man, I looooooooooooooved being pregnant too. I never had morning sickness, or any other complications. I just felt like a queen for 9 months! If I could just be pregnant all the time, I would do it. Only trouble is – you end up with a baby when all is said and done. If they popped out 4 years old, I’d be good!
So when will Eric and Jessica get married? That’s up for debate. Jessica claims she wants to wait until after the baby is born, so she doesn’t have to be a “hormonal bride”. But there are other sources (of course there are) that claim Jessica’s not even sure she wants to marry Eric, and even more, that Eric doesn’t want to sign a prenup.
A fight over her fortune is holding up Jessica Simpson’s wedding to Eric Johnson – and spoiling her baby joy. After years of heartbreak and humiliation, Jessica Simpson should be in ecstasy these days. The 31-year-old singer/entrepreneur is fabulously wealthy, of course, with a fashion and music empire worth anywhere from $700 million to $1 billion — and now, to make life complete, she’s aglow with her first pregnancy and engaged to a man she deeply loves, former NFL football player Eric Johnson. Ah, but this is Jessica we’re talking about, so even at this life pinnacle, there’s something to cause her anguish: Eric, who sources say had agreed to a prenuptial agreement, is now backing out and insisting on an equal share in her fortune — which is why, even as Jess’ baby bump burgeons, the couple’s wedding plans are on hold.
“Eric’s completely changed his mind,” an insider tells OK!. “He started dragging his feet, refusing to sign the prenup they’d drawn up; now he’s laying this whole guilt-trip on her about how he believes in true love and she should, too. A lot of people feel she’s been totally betrayed.”
Delaying the wedding while the down-home traditional Jessica is expecting, the insider adds, seems especially callous.
“Eric knows how important it was to her to be married before the baby was born,” says the source. “She wanted to rush the wedding so that her child wouldn’t be born out of wedlock, and she wouldn’t walk down the aisle with this massive bump. And he’s basically used that as a bargaining chip.”
“The problem is that Jess really loves him and wants to make him happy,” adds the insider. “She’s such a softy at heart, and she’s so sure he’s the one, which makes it harder for her to tell him no. She almost went through with it, too, but her sister Ashlee [Simpson] stopped her. Ashlee’s going through a terrible divorce herself [with Pete Wentz] and at one time everyone thought they would last forever. If Ashlee and Pete were still together, Jessica probably would have just gone and eloped without a prenup — but her sister’s breakup really shocked her.”
Nevertheless, many of Jessica’s friends are worried about how Eric’s financial hard-line will affect the future of their relationship.
“It’s been really strained, and Jessica has random crying fits,” the insider tells OK!. “She can’t believe he’s not giving her what she wants. But at the same time, she’s totally crazy about him.”
Bottom line? “Jess wants to have the baby already and start motherhood,” her longtime friend says. “And she just doesn’t want to mess up the relationship with Eric — not when she’s this close to having everything she’s always wanted.”
