Even at Jessica Simpson’s heaviest weight, her finacé, Eric Johnson couldn’t get enough of her.
The star, who's currently pregnant with her second child, opened up about her significant weight gain from pregnancy number one, admitting that her added pounds never repelled her loving beau.
“Apparently Eric still wanted me,” Jessica joked with Ellen DeGeneres today, March 5. “So I can gain as much weight and I will have a husband-to-be that loves me.”

Jessica, who’s lost 60 lbs. since giving birth to Maxwell (now 10 mo.), admits that she’s being more careful about her weight this time around, making sure she’s monitoring her food choices carefully.
“I was doing Weight Watchers and I felt super healthy,” she notes. “I’m not really craving as much, [plus] I know how hard it is to get off so I’m trying to make healthier, wiser decisions.”
And unlike her pregnancy with Maxwell, the bubbly blonde has been frequently snacking on something to alleviate morning sickness— Tums!

“It’s the complete opposite. With Maxwell, I felt amazing. I could do everything, eat everything,” she says. “I had a lot of energy. This time around, I’m exhausted. Eating Tums — that’s my snack of choice.”
While the reality star still refuses to share the sex of her baby, In Touch can reveal that she will give birth to a little boy this summer.
“She’s so excited about it,” says a source close to Jessica.
