Jessica Simpson, who's expecting her second child, is eating healthier and avoiding the excessive weight gain that marked her first pregnancy.
"The first pregnancy I let loose and kind of ate everything that I wanted to eat and I just really enjoyed it," Simpson said on the Ellen DeGeneres show March 6.
"This time around because I was doing Weight Watchers and I felt super-healthy, I’m not really craving as much. I know how hard it is to get [weight] off, so I’m trying to make healthier, wiser decisions."
Jessica, who gained 70 pounds during her first pregnancy, says her second time is different in other ways.
"It's the complete opposite," she says. "Like with Maxwell, I felt amazing, like I could do everything, eat everything. Do whatever I wanted. I had a lot of energy. This time around, I’m like exhausted. Eating Tums. That’s my snack of choice."
The 5-foot-3 Simpson, who reportedly tipped the scales at 200 pounds during her first pregnancy, is trying to minimize weight gain this time, but insists fiance Eric Johnson will love her no matter what her size.
"I can gain as much weight and I will have a husband to be that loves me," she says.
