Due-Date Countdowns for Kate Middleton, Kim Kardashian, and Jessica Simpson

Sarah Ball




Of Hollywood's crop of mothers-to-be, not one has volunteered the date she's set to hatch. Kim Kardashian and Jessica Simpson, brave pioneers in the world of gestational overshares, would rather reveal the extent of their weight gain (Kim's 140 these days, she says) and the precise nature of amniotic pressure ("I have a bowling ball sitting on my hoo-ha," Jess told Jimmy Kimmel) than share the range of their doctors' estimated-arrival dates.



And yet! They've all dropped hints. So, with a working knowledge of the very trashiest tabloids, a bookmarking of TimeandDate.com, and a reasonable familiarity with prenatal development, we've pinpointed dates-and ginned up countdowns-for Kate Middleton, Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, Penelope Cruz, and Jenna Dewan-Tatum. To the preggometers!
