If there's one thing we love about Jessica Simpson, it's her candidness and ability to laugh at herself. So when Ellen introduced her guest as "the always pregnant Jessica Simpson," the Fashion Star host and mom-to-be (again!) took it in stride. During her interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jessica compared her second pregnancy to her first, joked about how her weight gain didn't damage her sex life, and hinted that Maxwell may be getting a baby brother.
Jessica Simpson swung by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to chat about Fashion Star, as well as her growing family. Pregnant with her second baby following the May 2012 birth of her and fiancé Eric Johnson's first child, Maxwell Johnson, Jessica was candid opening up about the path that brought her to motherhood again — and how Eric loved her no matter how much weight she gained while pregnant the first time!
February was quite the month for the stars, kicking things off with Beyoncé Knowles's Super Bowl halftime show and rounding out the month with the star-studded 2013 Oscars. Plenty of fun happened in between, as well. Kate Middleton showed off her growing baby bump for a royal appearance in London, and Miranda Kerr and husband Orlando Bloom showed off their love with PDA at a pre-Oscars party.
That's not all that happened this month — click through to see the best pictures from February!
Eric Johnson and baby Maxwell visited pregnant Jessica Simpson on set as she filmed a commercial in LA yesterday. Jessica got dolled up in a clingy leopard dress that showed off her growing baby bump, while Eric and Maxwell took a moment outside her trailer. It isn't clear what Jessica is filming, but she does have quite a few projects in the works — her show Fashion Star premieres in March, she is set to star in a comedy pilot based on her life, and she still has an ad contract with Weight Watchers. To top that all off, she is pregnant with her second child, whom she reportedly plans to name Ace. With Jessica so busy, Eric and Maxwell have been inseparable.
Maxwell Johnson had a father-daughter afternoon with Eric Johnson yesterday while mom Jessica Simpson took care of business on her own. Maxwell looked adorable, wearing a black hair bow in her blond locks. Eric isn't the only one who is enjoying some one-on-one time with Maxwell — Jessica took Maxwell on a girls' lunch earlier this week. The happy mom recently tweeted about Maxwell's growing skills, announcing yesterday that her little girl can "whistle on cue at nine months." The Johnson-Simpson family will grow bigger later this year. They're expecting a second baby, who Jessica will reportedly name Ace.
Baby Maxwell, could you be any cuter?! The 10-month-old tot was spotted with her mama, Jessica Simpson, en route to a lunch date at Studio City, CA's Don Cuco Mexican Restaurant earlier this week in polka-dot leggings, minimoccasins, a cozy sweater, and a sweet pink hair bow. Jessica flattered her burgeoning baby bump in an all-black ensemble and topped it off with a military-style jacket and oversize sunglasses.

Jessica Simpson took her daughter, Maxwell Johnson, out for a girls lunch in LA this afternoon. Nearly 10-month-old Maxwell was decked out for the special occasion and wore a bow barrette in her hair. Jessica is coming off a fun weekend with family and friends that included lunch at The Cheesecake Factory with Maxwell's dad, Eric Johnson, and pal CaCee Cobb. Jessica, who is expecting her second child later this year, is also gearing up for the return of her NBC reality show, Fashion Star. The design competition, which features other style mentor Michael Kors, will be back on the small screen Friday, March 8.
Jessica Simpson covered her baby bump with a green jacket for lunch at The Cheesecake Factory with her fiancé Eric Johnson and pregnant pal CaCee Cobb in LA yesterday. CaCee is expecting her first child with new husband Donald Faison. The longtime couple tied the knot back in December, and Jessica was a bridesmaid at her wedding. Jessica is pregnant with her second child with Eric, which will make their daughter, Maxwell, a big sister.
Jessica is busy prepping for the birth of the new baby — she went shopping at a baby store last week — but she and Eric got to spend some romantic time together recently. Jessica wore a pink blazer for a special Valentine's Day lunch date with Eric on Thursday.
Stars felt the love yesterday on Valentine's Day, celebrating the romantic holiday with their significant others, family, and friends. Katy Perry and John Mayer went the traditional route with a romantic dinner, as did Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Cash Warren gave wife Jessica Alba a pretty bouquet, and Kate Mara kissed boyfriend Max Minghella during a stroll in NYC.
