Jessica Simpson has hit back at her critics for making catty remarks about her weight when she was pregnant.
The 33-year-old American actress/singer has frequently met with comments about her expanding waistline, but she has revealed the remarks were particularly vicious when she was pregnant with her daughter Maxwell and son Ace.
She tells UsMagazine, "We are creating a human life. I think we get every excuse to eat a doughnut. It's very hurtful, especially when you're so emotional and going through all of these hormonal changes... I am just one of those pregnant women who gains a lot of weight. I have really big boobs. Even trying as hard as I did with Ace I still gained."
