Jessica Simpson’s pregnant pause is childish
WILL blonde bombshell Jessica Simpson wait until she’s being rushed into hospital, in the throes of giving birth to her first child, before she finally reveals to the world that she is pregnant?
With the singer stepping out in New York last week in a figure hugging top, clearly showing a rounded belly, really all that is left to announce is the sex of the baby.
It’s a pity that the Dukes Of Hazzard star, 31, is reportedly still holding out for a lucrative magazine pregnancy announcement (the figure of $500,000 has been mentioned)
This is the girl who has survived being so publicly dumped by her previous beau Tony Romo and humiliated for looking a little too snug in her jeans on stage to finally find love with former NFL star Eric Johnson.

They have been dating for two years and became engaged last November.
Now with a baby due (most health professionals estimate from the size of her bump that she is at least 26 weeks pregnant), it looks as if she is finally embarking on her happily ever after journey. Phew!
Unfortunately Simpson is not the only celebrity to be shy about her kids.
Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher are simply not the kind of couple to buy into celebrity magazine spreads about their young family which includes, Olive, 3 and Elula, who was born in August 2010. In fact almost six months after Elula’s birth, Fisher (who is currently in Australia shooting The Great Gatsby), wouldn’t even utter her baby’s name when she was grilled on a US talk show.
That’s not surprising since the couple wouldn’t even confirm their pregnancy. One moment the diminutive star had a massive baby bump and the next time when she was seen out in public, she did not.
At least they can be commended for not putting their private life up for sale.
But on the other hand it’s hard to turn on and off the public’s interest once you enter the world of celebrity.
Just ask Kristen Stewart who is forever trying to deflect attention on her private life with co-star Robert Pattinson.
Problem is, I think, that she does it by coming across as sulky and quite frankly the whole thing has become quite tedious. She just recently told UK magazine GQ that she too will protect her children when she has them.
“I guarantee whenever I get married or have a baby, everyone is going to want to know my kid’s name, and I’m not going to say it for ages.” A bit childish perhaps?
Maybe it’s time for Simpson and other celebrities to simply allow us all to wish them well and be happy for them.
