Jessica Simpson’s $2 million birth

Jessica Simpson is expected to give birth in the next few weeks and she is sparing no expenses. The singer/actress/fashion designer and her fiancé, former NFL player Eric Johnson, have reportedly spent $2 million on security for the birth of their child as well as to ensure the safety of the baby afterwards. They booked an entire wing of the hospital so Simpson can privately give birth. “She’s turning the maternity ward into Fort Knox. If her friends and family want to visit her, they’ll have to make it through numerous checkpoints,” an insider told In Touch Weekly. “She’s terrified of kidnapping. Her head of security just held a pre-birth meeting for her family to brief them on the rules!” The couple will also be hiring 30 armed guards to protect their newborn around the clock. But despite the big-budget birth, Simpson is planning to make it all back and with a profit. According to In Touch, the mom-to-be is planning to sell pictures of her baby to the highest media bidder for a whopping $4 million. ~ Renita Naraine

    Long story short: Jessica Simpson is still freaking pregnant.

  2. Nobody Important • March 29, 2012 @ 3:02 AM

    30 armed guards? 2million dollars?

    Save your money Jessica, you could always make another crying poop monster if you should drop this one, if it should run away and join the circus, or if it’s stolen by wild dingos.

    She has the money, can’t blame her for wanting to spend it on her baby.

  4. David • March 29, 2012 @ 10:09 AM

    Oh I can blame her. Pure stupidity.

  5. Catherine • March 29, 2012 @ 10:34 AM

    OMG some people have more money than brains – everything today has just gotten totally out of hand with the rich and famous – right down to giving their children the most ridiculous names ever.

  6. jo jo • March 29, 2012 @ 10:56 AM

    I agree.. OMG. Who does she think she is?? Queen of the Universe and that it actually revolves around her! Does anybody actually care she is having a baby??

  7. Tharsos • March 29, 2012 @ 11:05 AM

    Celebs like her, and Beyonce & JayZ, Make me sick. If you are afraid of kidnappings, and what not, and feel like you need to spend 2million$$ to “Protect your child” maybe you should think about what type of world you’re bring that child in. Millions of women give birth, every day, you are not special.

    And to Say she’ll make her money back by prostituting pics of her baby… Someone take that baby away from her

  8. lkjh • March 29, 2012 @ 11:15 AM

    she also has a deal with weight watchers..she’ll be making money while she MAYBE loses the baby weight

  9. Bob • March 29, 2012 @ 12:02 PM

    If she’s spending 2 million for security for the birth of her child, how much is she going to spend when the kid goes to school later.

    The bottom line is that all parents have fears of what might happen to their children. If she has the dough, she might as well spend it on her kids. But at one point she’s going to have to realize that no amount of money in the world will total prevent her kids from getting hurt. In her case, it won’t prevent the media from exposing her kids from the camera. Thats the price hollywood stars kids pay for having popular parents.

  10. Lou • March 29, 2012 @ 12:18 PM

    Love the comments here and the hate for the uber-rich who spend more money than most of us will see in a lifetime on ridiculous paranoid self-indulgent things. Makes me sick.

  11. Heather • March 29, 2012 @ 12:22 PM

    Huh… when Beyonce and JayZ did this exact same thing everyone thought they were covering up a surrogate mother! The world thinks Beyonce didn’t give birth because they booked an entire wing of the hospital and had a bunch of security. Although I must admit, there is no denying Jessica is actually preggers, she is gigantic… what it comes down to is WHO CARES? It’s their money, it’s their baby, it’s their life.

  12. Sandra • March 29, 2012 @ 1:51 PM

    Now every kidnapper in the world (who never even thought of taking the kid) is planning the big nap(pie).

  13. Trevor • March 29, 2012 @ 2:01 PM

    She is a has been and washed up hack. No one cares about her or her extra chromosome child to be.

    Look at how fat she got with all that baby weight. Yuck.

  14. vickie • March 29, 2012 @ 2:23 PM

    Why do these people who think they are stars really need to spend so much on protecting their children. Who really cares about her giving birth. There are more important things people think about than JESSICA SIMPSON GIVING BIRTH. And to think she will sell the pictures of her baby to the highest bidder. Trust me the world doesn’t give a dam what you have and what it looks like.

  15. Tharsos • March 29, 2012 @ 2:26 PM

    @Heather… Who cares? how about the parents who need to go to the hospital to bring their children into the world, who will be turned away cause this moron has taken up all the room. There’s already a bed shortage in the hospital system that idiots like this, who think they own everything cause they have money, are not making things better.

    Think about it, if you were giving birth, and got to the hospital only to find out “Sorry there’s no room, you’ll have to go someplace else” you’d be P#$$ed when you found out that, Yes there was more than enough room, but this 1 idiot was making sure you couldnt get in.

    THAT is who cares.

  16. Silver • March 29, 2012 @ 2:42 PM

    Two questions:
    1. If she is worried about privacy, why doesn’t she have a home birth so that others aren’t inconvenienced?
    2. If she is worried about kidnapping because she is famous, when was the last time that happened? Patty Hearst?

    She should watch the show “Bubble Wrap Kids”.

  17. O'Neill • March 29, 2012 @ 3:30 PM

    Really? This money could help so many people in this world. Has she been receiving threats against the baby or is she just ridiculously insane? I hope no one buys those stupid pictures. Who cares? Unless the baby comes out blonde with gigantic breasts, there’s nothing really to tell here.

  18. WTF • March 29, 2012 @ 4:17 PM

    Of all the famous babies in the world..who on earth would want to kidnap Jessica Simpson’s? She’s being just a tad paranoid I’d say…no one wants her baby mroe than she does we get it

  19. Hilary • March 29, 2012 @ 4:19 PM

    If she wants to spend her money on her first baby what’s so wrong with that? I agree she doesn’t need a whole wing and can just have the baby at home but still…you’re all probably just jealous that she has the resources and you don’t

  20. Bug • March 29, 2012 @ 4:35 PM

    In the immortal words of Yoda, “care not do I”.

  21. Jacquie • March 29, 2012 @ 4:39 PM

    I dont think she is a has been. To me she is a “never was”. Who cares about her or her baby.
    She is one of those people who promote themselves like Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian. Famous for just “being”.

  22. yuck • March 29, 2012 @ 5:25 PM

    I didn’t even know she was pregnant but the photo clearly shows she is–wow she is big! I guess if you have the money, why not, but it seems a tad excessive to ensure privacy and safety but then I’m wondering, who would want to steal their baby? I guess there are all kinds of crazies out there but still!

  23. Macbeth • March 29, 2012 @ 5:29 PM

    Love all the comments about this dumb blonde!
    What’s the big deal about her having a baby anyway?
    Who does she think she is Midas Touch?
    These freaking celebrities think they’re babies are so different from our babies, all babies poops and so is she and the rest of us.
    THat is why I dont buy those stupid magazines or her product because I dont want her to make more money unless she sells my product, My awesome brain!

  24. gbh999 • March 29, 2012 @ 6:17 PM

    @ Heather & Hilary. The 2 of you… are vacant.

    I agree completely. This isn’t a matter of money, and it’s certainly NOT jealousy on my part. It’s really a matter of having some g*ddamn common sense.

    First, she’s not that famous. Second, child kidnappings are increasingly rare. Third, you can’t protect your children forever (especially at this scale). Will this child be shadowed by 30 guards when they attend grade school, during recess, bathroom breaks?

    I swear, these celebs have more money than common sense; they’re trapped in an opaque, air deprived, bubble where they can’t see or process how the real world operates.

  26. Roberta • March 29, 2012 @ 8:30 PM

    Why do people like this take every opportunity to be media hogs…….and then say they need to protect their privacy and child. And then turn around and sell pictures of their baby. THAT is what is so wrong about this. Just stay out of the public eye and shut up……please. Design your fashion line, sing, act or whatever it is you do…..and other wise fly low on the radar. So many untalented celebrity types should take this advice.

  27. Connie • March 29, 2012 @ 8:56 PM

    Did her sister spend that much on security because kidnappers could have stolen him and made Jessica pay the ransom since she is an extremely rich entrepreneur.

  28. My opinion • March 29, 2012 @ 10:12 PM

    Stupid…If she’s telling the world that she’s willing to pay 2 million on security for having her baby, isn’t she also telling those nut cases who would do anything stupid to make money that she has 2 million that’s she would give as ransom.

    Honestly, if she’s willing to spend that kind of money on security…she might as well build a small birthing room in her house and pay a personal doctor and nurse. That way she won’t block those waiting in line to have their baby but can’t because she took all the rooms on that floor in the hospital. I can’t believe that hospitals allow this.

    ——————————
    I was thinking the same thing. No one threatened to kidnap her sister’s baby… who, btw, was in the media spotlight at the time (unlike Jessica). I tellsya, this reeks of a media plow to make a fast buck… publicize the security costs to build demand; thusly, raising the price of the baby photos. It’s desperate and pathetic, and it can backfire in her face as some of you have noted. Now that baby’s become a target. Nice job Jessica.

  30. ap22 • March 30, 2012 @ 11:43 AM

    Who is goint to protect this innocent child from it’s parents and their excessive lifestyle?

  31. Joshua • March 30, 2012 @ 5:45 PM

    So many good causes to donate 2 million, But 2 Million on a F**king baby? I guess its just the poor people that dont see this as ok…lol

  32. Nobody Important • March 30, 2012 @ 9:34 PM

    Poor folks successfully give birth to healthy babies everyday…. all without the benefit of 2million dollars, so again, whatever Jessica’s doing she’s doing it wrong.

  33. Meow Meow • March 30, 2012 @ 9:59 PM

    Re: Heather… While not relevant to the story, I TOTALLY agree with the Beyonce surrogate mother thing… I also believe that Jessica, in yet another attempt at being “relevant”, is going to have TRIPLETS. Yes, you heard it first here. She’s so big that even twins would have a lot of room in there. I say she’s going to try to one-up them all and go for three… Oh yeah… she’s whacked re: article.

  34. Velvet • March 30, 2012 @ 11:48 PM

    Celebrities don’t know any other lifestyle besides excessive, instead of living modestly and giving more to charity to make a difference. But from a health standpoint, I hope she’ll take better care of herself because she is out of control huge for her first pregnancy. For her tiny frame, I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s at risk for gestational diabetes when she gives birth. She’s gained way too much weight from admitting to eating southern foods that she didn’t want to give up. Well, it shows!

    Personally, I respect actors/actresses like Meryl Streep, Michelle Pfieffer, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro and more who keep their private lives separate from their celebrity and they don’t flaunt it in public. That makes them that much more believable in their films. Hence the reason why I can no longer stand to see Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise, Owen Wilson, Halle Berry, Kate Hudson and others on screen because their personal lives are just so over the top and overexposed that they seem fake.

    I haven’t bought a tabloid or celebrity magazine since the death of Princess Diana and I really don’t care about celebrities and their babies. I have enough good friends and extended family members having babies that I readily celebrate and cherish with them. Peace out!

  35. Bender • April 1, 2012 @ 1:01 AM

    Jessica…. I am gonna get that baby… you can’t protect it forever… I’ll get it and I’ll eat it…. muah ha ha ha ha …

    Seriously though… nobody want’s to steal your kid.

  36. soccerworria • April 10, 2012 @ 5:23 AM

    alot to spend but alot of people would do the same if they had the money to spend for their kid but still lot of money none the less hope everything goes right for her tho.

    one last thing these threating coments that some people make not pointing out anynames but the cops and that can look it up and were it came from bender just to let you know

    When Silvestri and 15 witnesses turned up at a hearing to determine how a corpse could have given Silvestri a horse, the event was abruptly canceled. Each girl should formally ‘sign out’ the dress when she takes it off the rack. For instance, I argued that talk should go on talk pages and got people into that habit.
