Jessica Simpson’s Memorable Pregnancy

Man, it really felt like Jessica Simpson was pregnant for ages, right? We’re happy that she gave birth to Maxwell Drew, but we’re going to miss all her crazy pregnancy antics and quotes! It reminded us of Jessica’s no-filter mouth when she was on Newlyweds. Here’s a look back at her pregnancy:

Mummy Time

Jessica wore a mummy costume to announce her pregnancy on Halloween (how appropriate!). She said, “It’s true! I am going to be a mummy!”

Cover Girl

Jessica bared all on the cover of ELLE’s April issue. When asked about her daughter, she predicted that her baby won't be a girly girl at all but athletic like her fiancé (who used to play professional football). Jessica said, “I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!”

Ring the Alarm

There’s no such thing as TMI with Jessica. She told Jimmy Kimmel that she apparently has a lot of amniotic fluid, “Whenever my water breaks it’ll be like a fire hydrant!”

Not-Quite Pregnant in Heels

The new mama donned high heels during most of her pregnancy, but she missed her stilettos when she couldn't walk in them anymore. She tweeted, “I can’t wait for the day I can walk in heels again! My feet feel homesick!”

Swamp People

Have you ever compared your butt to a swamp? Only Jessica would. She told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, “I just started referring to myself as Swamp A—. Like, I have 'swamp a—' right now. I seriously had major swamp a— because I was wearing these Spanx to hold in my gut. It's like the bayou up in that region."

Strike or Spare?

If we all thought that Jessica was carrying her baby for an unusually long period time, think about how she felt! Jessica told Jimmy Kimmel, “I feel like I have a bowling ball sitting on my hoo-ha.” Thanks for the visual, Jess.

Seeing Spots

Jessica tweeted, “I just woke up from a dream that I wore a leopard caftan in the hospital. Fabulous! Now I need to find one!” We really hope she donned one in the delivery room — she is on Fashion Star, after all.

Happy Mama-to-Be

Even though Jessica liked to joke about her pregnancy, she really did enjoy it! She told PEOPLE, "Pregnancy was meant for me – it really was. 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.” Should we expect a whole brood from Jessica in a couple of years? Please let there be a reality show…
