Pregnant Jessica Simpson Pokes Fun at Her Extremely Swollen Foot in 10-Year Challenge Photo

Simpson is the latest star to join in on the 10-year challenge fun

Jessica Simpson is making light of her tough pregnancy.

After sharing a photo of her very swollen foot last week, Simpson had some fun with the “10-year challenge”, the latest viral craze that has seen dozens of stars taking a walk down memory lane with comparison shots from 10 years ago and today.

Instead of calling attention to her “glow up”, Simpson, 38, took the opportunity to show off the transformation her body has undergone since becoming pregnant with her third child.

In the left shot, Simpson’s incredibly toned legs are featured in cut-off denim shorts and a pair of wedges. Meanwhile, in the right image, she shared a snap of her swollen foot.

Simpson first shared the photo of her swollen foot on Jan. 11.

“Any remedies?! Help!!!!” she captioned the photo, prompting a number of her followers to share their experiences and solutions, which included elevating her feet and staying hydrated.

Other users, however, simply sent their support to the star. “Ugh, I remember. It was so painful. Nothing helped me!” wrote someone.

American Pregnancy Association explains that during pregnancy, “the body produces approximately 50 percent more blood and body fluids to meet the needs of the developing baby.”

The swelling, which is called edema, is common in the hands, face, legs, ankles and feet and is completely normal.

Simpson announced that she is expecting her third child — a baby girl — with husband Eric Johnson in September. The couple, who wed in 2014, are already parents to daughter Maxwell “Maxi” Drew, 6, and son Ace Knute, 5.
