Jessica Simpson covers the December issue of Lucky magazine, and the 31-year-old mom-to-be chats about putting on a few extra pounds, her fiance Eric Johnson and how her growing fashion empire may be linked to her growing waistline.
On her recent weight gain, Jessica told the mag, â€œEverybody fluctuates, but Iâ€™m open about my weight and Iâ€™m still confident. I didnâ€™t cry about it too much.â€ Jess added, â€œI got so much scrutiny for putting on extra pounds, but I think that the decision not to make myself anorexic was actually great for branding. Because when youâ€™re really, really skinny, not everybody can relate to you.â€
Jessica also chats about fiance Eric Johnson, telling the mag, â€œWhen I met him I just felt so comfortable with myself and where I was in my life that if he didnâ€™t want to be part of it, he didnâ€™t have to be.â€ Jessica just announced that the two are expecting their first child together, but she still hasn't made plans to walk down the aisle. â€œI havenâ€™t started shopping for our wedding yet,â€ she admits. â€œWhen I got engaged, everyone thought I would get married immediately, but I have not put a single dress on, and by the time this comes out I will not be married! Weâ€™re just enjoying being engaged right now -- and thatâ€™s honest.â€
Kudos to her for speaking out about such a weighty issue!
