Now that Jessica Simpson has been pregnant, is she going to add a line of maternity clothes to her Jessica Simpson Collection?

Simpson, 31, whose initial fashion focus was on shoes, boots and handbags, has expanded her line to include apparel, jewelry and perfume, so it wouldn’t be a stretch for her to add maternity clothes.
“I was going to launch a maternity line, but it seems like everything is already out there, and the point of launching a maternity line, for me, would be to do something different,” she says. The singer turned fashion mogul says that she didn’t buy maternity clothes during her pregnancy, just larger sizes of regular clothing.
“People don’t want to spend a lot of money on maternity clothes because you’re only pregnant for nine months, so it’s a harder business, but I feel like it’s something that we will do eventually,” she adds.
These days, the Abilene, Texas-born actress can be seen on Fashion Star mentoring up-and-coming designers and, for the finale, presenting the first-ever runway show for the Jessica Simpson Collection. “I think just seeing the drive and the excitement of these designers definitely reignited a fire within me and makes me want to go back to those beginning stages of excitement and fresh creativity,” she says.
