Reese Witherspoon Pregnant, Reese Witherspoon is reportedly pregnant with her third child. Various sources close to the actress broke the news to US Weekly, and a few onlookers recently caught a glimpse of the 36-year-old out for hike in the Santa Monica Mountains earlier this week.

“You could definitely see a small bump, which she covered-up with a loose fitting sweatshirt,” an observer on the trail tells the site. “Her baby bump is still small, but very noticeable. But she is in great shape — the hike was not that easy!”

The child will be Reese’s first with her current husband Jim Toth, and will join siblings Ava, 12, and son Deacon, 8, from Witherspoon’s first marriage to Ryan Phillipe. A friend of Witherspoon’s tells US that she is “right around twelve weeks.”

Jessica Simpson Pregnant

Jessica Simpson Pregnant, Although Jessica Simpson has been on the receiving end of a lot of body-negativity during her career, she hasn’t developed an aversion herself to making such comments about pregnancy and its effects on the female form.

Simpson- who has been pregnant for like two years now, it feels like- was speaking about her upcoming appearance on NBC’s Fashion Star in March. The 31-year-old pop singer says the appearance was filmed before she was pregnant, so appearing on the show now will create a contrast that she described in some not flattering or body positive terms. Simpson was on a conference call plugging Fashion Star when she said:

“I wasn’t pregnant when we shot it. It will be amazing to see myself with a waistline. I’ll be like a big blob sitting on the couch watching myself thin.”

I guess she gets some kind of a pass for not knocking other pregnant women, but still, that kind of insidious self-hate has a way of infecting others who watch and listen- particularly when it comes from the mouths of celebrities. And most pregnant women don’t have a stylist, scads of money for a trainer, or a makeup artist to touch up their look before they have to appear in public- so she undoubtedly made more than a few women who saw or read her comments feel not that great about themselves.
