Jessica Simpson Calls Her Babies ‘Accidents’ But We Know She Still Loves Them

LOL 48

jessica simpsonJessica Simpson is still trying to explain how she keeps getting knocked up. Yesterday she did a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest -- and Jessica pretty much called her future babies "accidents"! You've heard that one before, right? That first -- or maybe last -- child referred to as "our little mistake." (Hopefully totally out of earshot.) Well, that's Jessica's whole family.

Jessica says she originally wanted three kids, but now? "I really hope it stops. I feel like I could stop here. It's a lot of work." But what, Jessica? "Accidents do happen." Well with that attitude, I think those three kids are going to happen. Maybe even four or five. Does anyone else totally cringe when people refer to their children as accidents?

I kind of do. Even when parents who intended to have kids say it, it kind of implies that your child wasn't really wanted. And I think every kid wants to feel like they were planned for, like their parents really, really wanted them in their family. "Accident" and "mistake" always kind of make me feel a little sad.

But of course you can love your little "accident" just as dearly as you love your "planned" child. And I guess that's all that really matters -- how much you love your child once they're already here, regardless of how they got here. You love your kids no matter what.

I do kind of worry that Jessica still hasn't quite wrapped her head around the concept of birth control. These babies just keep happening to her and she wants it to stop but she can't! Stupid sperm and eggs, darn it! Or maybe she's attracted to the Adventure! of playing reproductive Russian roulette. Or maybe she's embarrassed about wanting lots of babies, so she just keeps pretending she didn't mean to get knocked up. Whatever, as long as she gives those babies (accidental or planned) lots of love.

Have you ever referred to your unplanned babies as an accident?

Both mine were suprises, which most babies are.

I don't cringe at "accidents" because all an accident is is something not planned for. That doesn't make it good or bad. I cringe when I hear "mistake". Especially when some uses "mistake" when what they mean is accident. I hear "mistake" and think "unwanted".

I prefer the word "surprise" to refer to an unplanned pregnancy, it's a much more positive way to look at it. "Accident" & "mistake" are words that are generally used in a negative context.



And no, I have never and would never refer to my unplanned children as accidents or mistakes.

I agree with larissa - I heard it said (a long time back and I think the story also was on some TV show once) that a baby is a surprise because an accident is something you wouldn't do over if you had the chance but a surprise is something you didn't know you wanted until you got it.  I've always like that comparison especially when thinking about babies.

^^ I think it was an episode of Rosanne where she says something like that to DJ. Its always stuck in my head because it was such a sweet way to word it.



Our third is the only one we planned.

An accident is something that, if you could go back in time, you would take steps to prevent it from happening.....a surprise is a wonderful gift you did not realize just how much you would love it until you were given it......and given the choice you would want that surprise again because you know how wonderful it was and you look forward to that feeling again.

I agree with the first commenter. An "accident" isn't always a bad thing. An "accident" is simply an unplanned event. Though I do prefer the term "happy accident" or "surprise." I WOULD have a huge problem with someone calling their unplanned child a "mistake." That is cruel and something no child should hear. Most of my siblings were what my mother termed "oops" babies. They were all wanted, just unplanned.

I couldn't agree more with Kattey. Calling a Child an Accident isn't as bad as calling more a mistake. But really, no one should call their child an accident, not to the face or anywhere where the child can hear them. NO Child is ever a mistake.
