“Eric is so athletic — we’re gonna have this athletic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping, ’cause all she’s gonna want is sports bras and Nikes!”
“It’s nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it, they’ll know … why.”
Simpson reveals her daughter made her presence known early on — just before a roadtrip, in fact.
“We were going to [go] all-day drinking…” she explains of her and Johnson’s planned drive to Venice Beach, Calif.
“Ride our bikes, hang out. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?”
With an inkling that something was off, Simpson took a home pregnancy test — and discovered she was expecting. Instantly, her life changed.
“I’m a free-spirited girl, but giving up my scotch? My Macallan 18? That was hard for me!” she says.
“Though now that doesn’t even sound good, being pregnant. You crave other things. A big thing of water sounds great!”
With what her ob/gyn predicts is a 10-lb. baby on the way (the same weight her former NFL-playing beau was at birth), Simpson hopes for a slightly lighter little one.
“I was only six pounds,” she notes. “So maybe Eric and I can meet in the middle.”
