Aww. I feel really, really bad for Jessica Simpson. Seriously, I'm not being sarcastic! It truly makes me sad to hear that the new mom is reportedly "stressed and overwhelmed" about the $4 million deal she made with Weight Watchers to lose 50 pounds in 5 months. Especially the part about how it breaks her heart to hit the gym when all she wants to do is spend time with baby Maxwell Drew. According to a "friend," she “She doesn't want to leave her baby,” a friend said. “Sometimes she just starts crying. It's hard for her."
Aww. I remember the emotional rollercoaster of early motherhood; how the slightest thing could make me weep uncontrollably. The baby made a sad face, oh my god! Boo-hoo-hoo! I feel for Jessica Simpson because she's just like any other new mom. (Except for the part about getting millions to lose the baby weight all new moms have to lose, but close enough.) And being a new mom is tough!
Take the pic Simpson tweeted of her giant nursing boobs. Sure, breastfeeding gives you quite the bountiful bosom, but in reality -- as Jessica Simpson no doubt knows by now -- those big boobs can be incredibly painful! Not to mention the leaking. The irritated nipples. And my fave, clogged milk ducts.
Sure, motherhood has brought Jessica Simpson millions of dollars and more cleavage than ever, but that doesn't mean adjusting to motherhood is any easier for her than it was for you or me.
Do you think Jessica Simpson deserves to be an emotional new mom even though she's a celeb?
