Jessica Simpson is craving a host of unhealthy food now that she's expecting a baby with her hubby, Eric Johnson! Friends of the fashion mogul, 38, revealed that with months still to go until the birth of her third baby, Jessica is gaining weight — and is now likely tottering on the edge of 265 pounds. “She’s so big that some guess she’s gained around 100 pounds during this pregnancy,” a source confided. “Jessica is extremely sensitive about the way she looks, and yet she refuses to fight her cravings.” Click through RadarOnline.com's gallery to find out more.

“Overeating has always been a problem for her, but it gets especially bad when she’s pregnant,” the source said. “Now she’s gorging on all her favorite comfort foods with no inhibitions. Fried chicken and waffles with maple syrup and butter, buttermilk biscuits, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes with gravy and fish and chips — you name it, she eats it. She finishes every meal with dessert.”

An insider told Radar that while Simpson “was ordering junk food before pregnancy,” now that she’s expecting, she’s calling in requests for massive high-calorie meals “like crazy.” “Postmates is her BFF,” laughs the source, who noted Simpson “rarely goes out and eats in public” these days.

“She loves Mexican food,” said the insider, noting the star loves to wash it all down with two-liter bottles of Coke, grape and orange soda, and other sugary drinks.

And even after she’s had filling meals, the insider revealed Simpson “gets midnight munchies,” which she sates with everything from licorice, Reeses Pieces and Snickers to gummy bears, potato chips, ice cream, and Sprinkles cupcakes.

The next morning, Simpson is at it all over again! “She’ll order a dozen donuts and egg mcmuffins for breakfast,” revealed the insider. “For dinner she’ll order a full spread or two of dishes because she can’t decide what she wants.”

“It’s out of hand because it’s all the food she’s not supposed to eat in general, and especially now that’s she’s pregnant it’s out of control,” said the insider of the breakfasts, lunches and dinners that are “all junk food.”

Simpson shares daughter Maxwell, 6, and son Ace, 5, with former NFL star Johnson, 39, and back in September the couple announced they were expecting another child. “This little baby girl will make us a family of five,” the curvy star captioned a photo of her kids surrounded by pink balloons. “We couldn’t be happier to announce this precious blessing of life.”

Unfortunately, while Simpson is loving her food, the couple’s sex life has faded since they announced their big news — much to her hubby’s chagrin. “He hinted that she should eat a little healthier but she flipped out," said another source. “That was the end of that! Now she and Eric are both looking forward to this baby being born, if for different reasons!”
