Pregnant Jessica Simpson craves salty fruit

Pregnant Jessica Simpson has developed a bizarre craving for salty cantaloupe melons.

The singer/actress is expecting her first child with fiance Eric Johnson and she reveals her tastebuds have been turned upside down in recent months.

She can no longer eat pizza because it "tastes sour" and she only ever wants to eat one particular fruit.

She tells People.com, "I crave cantaloupe like a crazy person. But I put salt all over it, so I don’t know if it’s that healthy. I crave anything salty and sweet. That mixture to me is so good. I can eat a whole cantaloupe in one morning."

Simpson isn't the only star who craved melon while pregnant - Jessica Alba gobbled chunks of watermelon while she was expecting baby Haven.
