So Jessica Simpson finally had her baby. (Thanks, Amanda, for posting about it so quickly so I caught the news!)
I must say that I was quite surprised that the baby wasn’t bigger. I just told Lee last night during our weekly review of news at The Superficial that I was convinced she would have a 12 pound baby. Or at a minimum, a baby bigger than my last one.
So how big is her baby? 9 lbs. 13 oz. and 21 3/4 inches.
How big was Brinkley? 9 lbs. 14.7 oz. and 23 inches.
I know that’s not a huge difference, but still. I really thought her baby would be bigger than mine.
I’ll admit I was a large pregnant person. I don’t have many pictures of me at my largest, which is best for everyone. But here’s one from my baby shower, about 5 weeks before Brinkley was born. And seated, which doesn’t give the best view, but it’s all I could find. Keep in mind that I’m only 5’1″ so mostly I expand straight out when with child.
And here are a couple relatively recent pictures of pregnant Jessica Simpson:
I may be fooling myself because again, I know I was a giant pregnant person. But I swear I think she’s bigger than I was. She said last week that she’s gained 40 pounds. I’m kind of thinking more, as someone who gained more than 40 pounds with each pregnancy. It looks like more than 40 pounds to me.
At least I can say that I’m glad I didn’t go 10 days past my due date with Brinkley like Jessica did. He would have been even bigger than this:
