28 year-old country singer Jessica Simpson is said to be desperate to have a baby with her quarterback boyfriend, Tony Romo, 28. Jessica’s younger sister Ashlee is expecting a baby with her new husband around Halloween, and Jessica is anxious to join the motherhood club. According to the National Enquirer, the blond country singer took a home pregnancy test and thought it was positive, so she made an announcement to Tony’s family that they were expecting. The only problem is that she wasn’t really pregnant and Tony’s family was floored at the prospect:
Jessica Simpson wants Tony Romo’s baby!
With her little sister Ashlee married and expecting, Jess has decided she wants to start her own family with the Dallas Cowboys quarterback.
But Romo’s family is none too pleased, say sources.
“There was a huge fight on July 18 at the Romo home,” a source close to the family told The Enquirer. “Jessica and Tony thought she was pregnant and happily announced it to the family.
“The news resulted in dead silence. Then Tony’s dad Ramiro said, ‘You’re not married. this is crazy!’ Tony’s mom Joan joined in, demanding, ‘How can you do this to us?’”
Jessica, 28, said her home pregnancy test showed a positive result and that she was heading for a doctor to find out for her.
A spokesperson for Jessica says she is not pregnant, but pals say it’s not for lack of trying.
“Her friends know she’s feverishly trying to conceive,” confided an insider.

I love that quote “feverishly trying to conceive.” The National Enquirer is more accurate than a lot of the other tabloids and I don’t doubt this story. If anyone could get confused between one or two lines on a stick, it’s Jessica Simpson. I had a false positive pregnancy test in college once, and it happens. The tests were more complicated back then and involved eyedroppers and little cups.
Do you think Romo is ready to be a dad? This article makes it sound like he’s happily on board but that his family is dead set against it. These two broke up temporarily right before Ashlee’s wedding amid rumors that Jessica was too open about their relationship in an interview and that Romo was sick of her dad’s controlling ways. It’s not going to get any easier for him if he marries into that family and/or has a baby with Jessica. He seems like a pretty easy going guy, but one who is willing to put his foot down as needed.
Jessica first met Tony’s family on June 27 at a dinner at the Olive Garden. She’s said to have impressed them at the time, but if she went and announced a non-pregnancy just three weeks later she’s got to be on their shit list now. Maybe she’ll rethink her baby urge and wait until she’s won over his family and sealed the deal with a wedding first.
