Jessica Simpson Was Surprised At Her Second Pregnancy, Despite Not Using a Condom Or Being On the Pill

Today in sex education: ladies, if you don’t use protection during sex or are not on birth control, there’s a chance you may fall pregnant. Apparently Jessica Simpson missed that day’s lesson, because the singer/actress/Weight Watchers spokeswoman (what does she do???) admitted that her second pregnancy, which came less than a year after she gave birth to daughter Maxwell, was a total surprise. Ouch.

From an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (via DigitalSpy):

Simpson was in the midst of an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, when she joked about the circumstances surrounding her pregnancy.

“I don’t know, apparently protection was just thrown out the window,” Simpson teased, adding: “We were definitely extremely shocked.”

The ‘With You’ singer also admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that the second pregnancy has been far rougher than when she was carrying daughter Maxwell.

“Like with Maxwell, I felt amazing,” she recalled. “Like, I could do everything, eat everything. Do whatever I wanted.

“I had a lot of energy. This time around… I’m like, exhausted, eating Tums. That’s my snack of choice!”

Tums are good – I’d eat them as a snack and I’m not even pregnant (nor do I have heartburn), but calcium is good for all of us. In any case, how much do we want to bet she’ll end up pregnant again after she gives birth to her son (who’s going to be called Ace, apparently)? I’d bet on it.

  • Hmm. Was she still breast feeding when she got pregnant? Because believe it or not, actual health officials from the actual National Health Service here in the UK actually inform mothers-to-be that breast feeding works as a contraceptive.

    (I know. I was horrified too.)

      • While breastfeeding can suppress some of the hormones that return a women to her natural cycle of ovulation/menstruation, it is NOT a reliable form of birth control. If that is what the UK is telling its citizens, maybe that’s why they call siblings so close together “Irish twins”…. (no offence meant to the actual Irish themselves).

  • I have heartburn issues, but eating too many TUMS makes me constipated. There is such a thing as too much calcium.
