Jessica Simpson never holds anything back, so it’s no surprise that she was candid with her Instagram followers about her weight gain while pregnant. The singer and mogul posted a photo on Instagram in a tight, black dress, and shared how much she gained while pregnant with her baby, Birdie Mae Johnson.
She writes, “6 Months. 100 pounds down (Yes, I tipped the scale at 240).” She also talks about being away from her baby for the first time. “My first trip away from #BIRDIEMAE and emotional for many reasons, but so proud to feel like myself again. Even when it felt impossible, I chose to work harder.”
Under the post, she received a lot of support from other celebrity mothers. Reality stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, JWoww, Kyle Richards, and Katrina Scott all showed love, while Katie Couric gave positive encouragement. “You look amazing,” the TV personality wrote.
