“Has she really had bad habits this pregnancy?” wrote another, along with elephant emojis. “I thought legit her body was rejecting this pregnancy haha.”

Simpson’s appearance has garnered much attention throughout her career. A one time spokesperson for Weight Watchers, those close to the star report that during pregnancy she has been craving junk food.

She’s so big that some guess she’s gained around 100 pounds during this pregnancy,” A source told RadarOnline. “Jessica is extremely sensitive about the way she looks, and yet she refuses to fight her cravings.”
