Jessica Simpson - Jessica Simpson felt for Kim Kardashian during pregnancy
Jessica Simpson has said she ''felt for'' Kim Kardashian when she came under criticism for her pregnancy weight gain - and suggested people are unfair to women preparing to give birth.
Jessica Simpson sympathised with Kim Kardashian after she was criticised for her pregnancy weight.
The reality TV star gave birth to North West - her first daughter with partner Kanye West - in June, and the 'Fashion Star' mentor has defended her after she got mocked for her own curves.
Jessica - who also has a daughter Maxwell, 15 months - told Us Weekly: ''I felt for Kim - I knew exactly what she was going through ... I send a lot of love her way, and I know she'll come back with a bang.''
The 33-year-old singer doesn't ''understand'' why women are given a ''hard time'' when they gain weight during their pregnancy.
She added: ''I will never understand why people give pregnant women such a hard time.
''We are creating a human life: I think we get every excuse in the world to eat a doughnut!''
Jessica also praised Britain's Duchess Catherine for ''glowing'' while she was waiting to give birth to Prince George - and admitted she doesn't mind that she ''can't help'' gaining weight.
She said: ''Kate Middleton was glowing throughout her pregnancy. A lot of pregnant moms were looking at her like, 'How do you do that?'
''I am definitely one of those pregnant women who just gains a lot of weight. I have really big boobs, I have my curves and I just gain weight.
''I can't help it ... It's been six weeks since I've had my baby now, and I feel great ... It's okay to gain weight, and it will always come off.''
