When it comes to everything from first trimester symptoms to nursery decorating, motherhood seemingly comes naturally to some women. CaCee Cobb, the best friend of Jessica Simpson, says that the celebrity is one of them.
Recently, Cobb claimed that Simpson is truly a super mom while speaking to Us Weekly magazine. Simpson, who is in the middle of her second pregnancy, is constantly having to run after her 1-year-old baby, Maxwell. However, it seems like nothing can slow down the fashionista, who is happily approaching her due date.
"She's got me beat," Cobb, 35, told the news source. "Just watching her, I'm in awe because she makes it look easy - but it's not, I can tell!"
Cobb is experiencing her first pregnancy with actor Donald Faison, and as Simpson's former personal assistant, she seems to have learned a lot while spending time with the celebrity.
"I like being pregnant," Cobb confessed to the magazine. "I hate to say it because some people are like, 'There's no way!' But I actually enjoy it so far.'"
As for Simpson, this will be her second child with fiance Eric Johnson. The two haven't been able to tie the knot in between Maxwell and this unexpected pregnancy that's now consuming their time. However, the couple seem eager to welcome the new baby into their family.
Being pregnant for a second time
After going through pregnancy symptoms for the first time, you might think you're completely prepared for the road ahead once you find out you're expecting again. However, there's still an ample amount of effort that needs to go into planning for baby No. 2.
First, you'll want to check with your doctor to ensure that your body is ready to handle a second child. Depending on how long it's been since your last pregnancy, you may be advised to wait until your body fully recovers from the last delivery.
Next, you and your partner will need to take lifestyle changes into account as the second pregnancy comes into play. Do you have enough money to support both children? Will one of you need to take more time off to spend with your kids?
Finally, you'll need to get used to listening to your body and taking care of yourself. Being a parent of multiple children can be demanding - don't be afraid to ask for help.
