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.
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.''
