She gave birth to son Ace Knute back in June, and Jessica Simpson struggled with envy when comparing herself to then-pregnant Kate Middleton.
The Fashion Star actress told US Weekly that watching the Duchess of Cambridge progress through her term was a bit intimidating because of how graceful it all seemed.
“Kate Middleton was glowing throughout her pregnancy. A lot of pregnant moms were looking at her like, “How do you do that!””
As for the scrutiny over her own weight gain, Simpson added, “I will never understand why people give pregnant women such a hard time. We are creating human life: I think we get every excuse in the world to eat a doughnut! It”s very hurtful, especially when you”re so emotional and going through all of these hormonal changes. People would come up to me and say, I”m so sorry that everybody is giving you a hard time.””
