If there's a point at which a bridesmaid can be so pregnant that she can't help but distract from the bride, Jessica Simpson reached it on Saturday. Along with her younger sister, Ashlee Simpson, the singer-actress-mogul pulled bridesmaid duty over the weekend for friend and former assistant Lauren Zelman's wedding to TV actor Bret Harrison at the Parker Palm Springs in California.
"She was a good sport about being a bridesmaid even though she is so pregnant," a source, assumably in attendance, told Us Weekly. "It definitely wasn't easy for her to get around and help the bride."
Both Simpsons sported printed halter bridesmaid dresses in an airy fabric with a bow at the waist—which on Jessica equated to more of an empire waistline with plenty of support for her super-pregnant bust. Bridesmaids also carried bouquets of white, pink, and peach roses and peonies to coordinate with the palette of their dresses.
Fiancé Eric Johnson escorted Simpson to the wedding, which was also attended by The OC actor Adam Brody (above left) and Jessica's parents, Joe and Tina Simpson.
