Jessica Simpson is Naming Her Daughter After a Feminine Product

Can you guess what it could be? Massengil? Always? Stayfree? Well, you’re sort of close if you were thinking along those lines. Jess will be naming her new daughter Maxi, short for Maxwell.

Maxwell is girlfriend’s boyfriend’s middle name, and in an effort to honor him and his baby-making capabilities, they’re going to name their daughter Maxwell. According to the source who revealed it to In Touch magazine, Jess has even been wearing a ‘M’ necklace around her neck:

“They’re going to call her Maxwell, Maxi for short,” the friend told the magazine. Maxwell is fiancé Eric Johnson’s middle name, which he in turn inherited from his grandmother. “Jessica wanted a name with meaning.” Adding to the veracity of the claims is the fact Jessica has been spotted wearing an “M” pendant around.

So it’s kind of interesting, right? Not entirely bad. I really prefer Maxwell to Maxi, and if we’re going full-out and calling the kid Maxi, there should at least be an ‘e’ on the end of it, because seriously, when I see ‘Maxi,’ all I can literally think about is Maxi Pads, and what young girl wants to be associated with a menstrual period? Come on.

In related news, Jess’s pregnancy libido is out of control, and that’s coming right from the horse’s mouth and not from a source. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Jess says:

“I am definitely ‘feeling intimate’. I’m kind of unstoppable right now. The Big O is, like, the biggest O ever! [Eric Johnson is] always ready.”

Did you catch that? He’s always ready. Was that too much information for you? In addition to the whole sanitary pad references? Because this entire thing was kind of way too much information for me. And that happens almost as often … nearly as much as … OK, it never happens, guys. Never.

Love It or Leave It: Jess Simpson’s Maternity Wear. Again.

You know, some people just never learn.

Jess, I realize that dresses are totally the most comfortable thing to wear when you’re a gazillion months pregnant, but why – oh why! – do you consistently insist on choosing the ugliest, worst-patterned, flappiest dresses you can find? Is it that hard to choose something basic and black, and not a sofa slipcover that looks like it was taken off the set of The Golden Girls? Honestly, girl, I’m in your corner and I think you look all sweet and pregnanty and I’m sure you’re way uncomfortable and ready to pop, but damn. That is one f-cking ugly getup..

The most horrifying thing, though, is that Jess is considering designing a maternity line in addition to her shoes and accessory collection. In a recent telephone interview, Jess said, “I definitely want to do maternity clothes. I’ve started to try and come up with some designs. I haven’t really loved anything. Personally, I’m not buying any maternity clothes. I’m wearing all clothes that are just in bigger sizes. I want to make a maternity line that’s comfortable, but really stylish. I believe we all deserve to feel good and look good.”

OK. Did you get all that? First, she admitted to just buying clothes in bigger sizes. This explains the inherent sloppiness. See, when I was pregnant the first time around, I did the same thing and guys, I’m not going to lie: I look at photos of myself from that time and I cringe. I cringe. I looked quite similar to Jess, just with smaller boobs, and you know why? Because buying bigger clothes when you’re pregnant isn’t a good look. When I was most recently pregnant, I splurged and spent way too much on maternity clothes. Yes, they were cut in the worst ways imaginable, and they weren’t the prettiest of things, but I, at least, didn’t feel like a walking Glad bag filled with cottage cheese and baby feet. No, maternity clothes are definitely a good investment, as far as I’m concerned, and if there’s a third pregnancy in my life (at this point I’m saying ‘no way!’), I will also be buying maternity clothes.

Definitely just not those designed by Jessica Simpson, jeez.

Hey, Did You Want to See Jessica Simpson’s Nude Pregnancy Magazine Cover?

Bam! Because here it is. BAM!

Doesn’t girlfriend look great? And isn’t she just going to be the most darling mom? Jess covers the April issue of Elle magazine, and she really dropped a bunch of quote gems on their readers. You ready for a few?

Jess on determining her little girl’s fashion choices down the road:

“I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins! … Eric is so athletic – we’re gonna have this athletic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping, ’cause all she’s gonna want is sports bras and Nikes!”

And then Jess on the name decision:

“[It's] nontraditional. We’re sure on the name. It’s nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it, they’ll know … why.”

Oh dear. It’s not going to be, like, Daisy Duke or anything, right? Because while, yeah, we’d all know why (God, wasn’t Jess so smoking hot in her DD days?), it doesn’t really seem like an appropriate name for a little girl. OK? Can that just be said already? I’m willing to support just about any name that Jessica Simpson and her fiance could come up with, but Daisy Duke is just not on that list.

Jess on forgetting all of the tabloid troubles she’s had in the past:

“I’m still standin’. I grew up very strong! You know, my father used to be an adolescent therapist. I remember sitting at his office, watching the girls walkin’ in and out. Kids doin’ coke at 16 … heroin. Pregnant at 14. I could see what I didn’t want to be.”

And finally, Jess on how her body told her that she was pregnant:

“We were goin’ to have an all-day drinking binge. Gonna ride our bikes, hang out … do naughty things. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?”

Seriously, though, all joking aside: won’t it be so much fun to see how Jess’s daughter’s going to turn out? I know I’m excited. I just hope she doesn’t give her advice on maternity clothes if and when she decides to have children of her own. Some mistakes just aren’t worth repeating no matter how innocent they are in the beginning.
