Live Your Life, Jessica!

So Jessica Simpson is pregnant again. An “unexpected” pregnancy, 7 months after she gave birth to her first daughter.

I’m happy for her. Surprises happen. I’m sure it will all be fine. What’s there to judge?

SO VERY MUCH, it seems, based on Facebook reactions.

She’s still not married! She’s still fat! She’s going to get even fatter! The baby is going to cause body deformities and she’s ruining any chance at ever being skinny again! She’s going to lose her Weight Watchers contract! Her first baby will be neglected and never get to feel what it’s like to be a “real” baby! She needs to get her life together and stop making mistakes!

Okay, obviously I should know to expect such horror from Facebook. Clearly this is pointing out the obvious. I’m in a ragey mood, though, so roll with it.

I was going to post the 5 FB responses that most make me want to stab kittens, but I don’t have the patience for that much photoshop today. And then, with the stabbing feelings I was getting while looking at the statuses for so long, it was just not good for my mental health and the safety of those around me.

But this? This gem deserved to be shared. My absolute favorite, found on the US Weekly Facebook page.

Yes. High fives to you, ma’am, and I cosign. LIVE YOUR LIFE, JESSICA! And congrats.

I removed the author’s name and pic because I don’t know if she wants me to share her identity with everyone, not trying to take credit for her amazingness! I have a message out to her, asking if I can reveal her awesome identity and will update if she lets me.

 

  • Alex @Before The Baby Wakes - Congrats to her! If I has a team of people to help me get everything done I’d consider popping them out like tic tacs too. But the prospect of getting pregnant again next August (just 14 mths after my last) is making me freak out, but celebs are different. They’re like magical unicorns.ReplyCancel

  • Samantha @ 24to30 - I will never understand why people are so fascinated by other people’s sex lives and reproductive habits. I just saw the big news in my news feed and was laughing/rolling my eyes at the extreme comments. People have been having “surprise” pregnancies for a looooong time and Jessica is obviously well-set, so I’m sure everything will be just fine.ReplyCancel

  • Mae (Life's Candy) - Amen! I love that she’s pregnant again and people who are dismayed by the fact that another woman has conceived a child and has the nerve to be thrilled about it can suck lemons.ReplyCancel

  • Suzanne - YOU GO JESSICA. Have those babies!ReplyCancel

  • Jenni - My kids are 14 months apart. I get itReplyCancel

  • Sarah Hammer - Agreed! I have a ten month old and am itching to get pregnant again. I’m trying to reason between my logical self (telling me to save money) and my ‘why the hell not’ self. Its very hard.ReplyCancel

  • Bethany - My husband and I had our first two babies only 13 months apart and received ridiculous amounts of unwanted criticism from all sorts of people. When I became pregnant with my third child 8 months after my second was born, I was terrified to announce my pregnancy for fear of the verbal backlash. When I shared the news and my anxieties with my hilariously wise mom she replied, “Well, screw all those people! It is none of their business!”
    I can’t imagine having to deal with constant critiquing from thousands of people!ReplyCancel

    • Jill - Oh, that would have irritated me, too. Good that your mom was on your side and able to make you laugh about it.ReplyCancel

  • Miranda (Not Super...Just Mom) - Anybody else go on to sing “ain’t got no time for tha hatas/too busy chasin’ that paper”? No? Just me? Okay then.

    But seriously, live it, Jessica.ReplyCancel

    • Jill - Oh, I’ve totally been singing that song all morning. It’s my anthem, but she can borrow it.ReplyCancel

  • Elizabeth - Yay! Moar chubby babies!! I’m happy for her.

    And anyone who still calls her “fat” after she has lost pretty much 70 pounds in less than a year needs to be shit kicked in the shitter.ReplyCancel

    • Jill - AMIRITE? She looks good. She’s lost all but less than 10 lbs of her baby weight, from what I read. That’s pretty amazing.ReplyCancel

      • Elizabeth - that is amazing and fast! I get pissed when people expect an unhealthy weight loss of more than 2 pounds per week. I LOVE that she’s losing weight like a normal human. This is what we bitch about- not having realistic expectations in Hollywood- and she’s setting an example for realistic achievable goals…and she still gets bitched at for it. I wasn’t a big fan of her before- but definetly am now.ReplyCancel

  • MommaBeThyName - I’ve had to say this once already this week, but that’s what happens when MANY people have access and ability to respond. To anything. 1/3 legitimate comments, 1/3 illegitimate/ignorant comments, and 1/3 links to buy penis enlargement pills and to “SEE WHO LOOKED AT YOUR PROFILE!!!!!”ReplyCancel

  • Gina_AcuteDesigns - ha! love it. seriously, why are people so concerned over something that has nothing at all to do with them? the world is nuts.ReplyCancel

  • Headant - My kids are a year apart. May her two be the best of friends like mine are.ReplyCancel

  • Brandi Stewart - Hahahahahahahaha….I love it!!! And I say congrats to her too. Babies are awesome. I wouldn’t give back one pound I have left over (and believe me, there are quite a few!) if it meant I didn’t have my sweet baby boy to snuggle and laugh with daily. Weight, shmeight!ReplyCancel

  • Jess Craig - eff yes. I liked that comment too.ReplyCancel

  • The818.com - Word. Live your life.ReplyCancel

  • Candice Moretti - Boom!ReplyCancel

  • Tracy Tureson - FYI Awesome Screenshot is great for getting copying things off the web. You can get the shot crop and edit and save the picture. (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/awesome-screenshot-captur/alelhddbbhepgpmgidjdcjakblofbmce) Its an add on in chrome….

    BTW I agree let the girl be, she’s got enough going on in her life. Just let her do the best she can, she doesn’t need any greif from anyone.ReplyCancel

  • AJ Cecil-Starlin - BEST COMMENT EVER! Love it! Why are people so crazy! Who cares if she got pregnant again when her babe is 7 months old. I have a couple friends with kids 11 months apart…so they got pregnant when their baby was 1 month old. It all turned out fine, kids are happy and taken care of and they still look good! :)ReplyCancel

  • Janine (Alternative Housewife) - Word. I’d have 5 kids already if I had celebrity money/chefs/trainers.ReplyCancel

  • Michelle - Kick ass.ReplyCancel

  • Trina - I say good for her! She can at least take care and provide for all her young ones. We’re pregnant with our first, but may have to consider trying earlier than maybe I would love to because of my age. So at first it will be trying without really trying (the kits etc). If it happens early, awesome. If not, I just hope we get a chance to have a second. Each child is a blessing. Surprise or not.ReplyCancel

  • Rachel - I love it! And that commenter is right. Good for Jessica and congratulations to her. My first two were 13 months apart. Now I have a 4 year old, a 3 year old (happy birthday to him actually!), and a 5 month old. I’m skinnier than I was when I got married and my oldest two are best friends that could not adore their baby brother more. Suck on that, negative commenters everywhere ;)ReplyCancel

  • Salt & Nectar - We wonder if Facebook could survive without all the haters? Congrats to Jessica Simpson and her growing family — we wish her nothing but happiness.ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer Pittman Paris - Yes, leave her alone. It’s none of our business how close together her children are, jeez!ReplyCancel

  • Kat - A to the MEN! I was pregnant with #2 when #1 was 10 months old and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I actually PLANNED it that way and am so glad. People can be such jerks.ReplyCancel

  • Jenna - Good advice for all of us. Live your life. Love it.ReplyCancel

  • Best Mama - Wow, good thing I get all my news from blogs – I had no idea she was pregnant again. Bless her. Seven months after my son was born nobody was tappin’ anything LOL.ReplyCancel

  • Kim Kardashian Doesn’t Think Pregnancy Is Fun, AND THAT’S OKAY - [...] swear, I didn’t set out to become some sort of pregnant celebrity defender (see me sticking up for Jessica Simpson here). It’s just, I guess the reactions to these celebrity pregnancies are so magnified and also [...]ReplyCancel
