Her interview is below, along with her clothed photo shoot and cover. She also did an unclothed cover which can be found HERE (it may be NSFW, if only for the botched Photoshopped nudity). In any case, it’s a passe, cheesy photo shoot for which she’s rubbing her stomach and fiance Eric Johnson is kneeling and kissing her belly.
On her hopes for her daughter’s sense of style: “Ah swear, ah will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” she blurts out, her Dallas accent swooping back in this moment of heightened anxiety. “Eric is so athletic. We’re gonna have this ath-a-letic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping, ’cause all she’s gonna want is sports bras and Nikes!”
On taking tabloid brutality in stride: “I’m still standin’,” she drawls. “I grew up very strong! You know, my father used to be an adolescent therapist. I remember sitting at his office, watching the girls walkin’ in and out. Kids doin’ coke at 16…heroin. Pregnant at 14. I could see what I didn’t want to be.”
On her body subconsciously telling her she was pregnant: “We were goin’ to have an all-day drinking binge,” Simpson says, not shy about saying so. “Gonna ride our bikes, hang out…do naughty things. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?”
On her heavy baby: “I was only six pounds,” she notes. “So maybe Eric and I can meet in the middle.” – via Elle Magazine.
