OK! Mag: Jessica Simpson is pregnant and wearing maternity clothes


I’ve been Code Red: Bump Watch for Jessica Simpson for more than a month now. I know that Jessica has often looked “bumpy” over the years, but I feel strongly that this time, she really is knocked up, and that’s why there’s so much mixed information about her wedding to K-Fed-like Eric Johnson. I also think Jessica has a beyond-first-trimester bump in many recent photos – her natural bump looks bigger than Beyonce’s unpadded bump, let’s just say that. Anyway, for whatever reason, Jessica has not announced her pregnancy. There are rumors that she’s negotiating a cover with People Magazine, but that still hasn’t happened. So, as always, the tabloids are stepping in to “announce” the story for Jessica.

Dressed in a flowing striped maxi dress, a beaming Jessica Simpson smiled as she arrived for a baby shower at the Ivy at the Shore restaurant in Santa Monica.

The performer, along with her mom, Tina; sister, Ashlee; and 2-year-old nephew, Bronx, was at the restaurant on Oct. 15 to celebrate childhood friend Stephanie McGuire Terblanche’s impending motherhood — but that’s not the only baby the Simpson clan is getting ready for!

“Jessica is so excited,” says a close friend, who confesses that Jessica has been slowly telling all her pals that she and fiancé Eric Johnson, 32, are becoming parents.

“She joked, ‘Well, now I can eat anything I want and no one will care. It’s just sort of a rule with pregnant women.’ But it was typical Jessica that she was making a joke of it.”

At 31, Jessica has learned to take life’s little twists and turns in stride. Although she originally told her friends that she didn’t plan to have a baby before she was married to Eric, to whom she became engaged this past November, the order of these happy events hasn’t really mattered to her. Jessica is just delighted finally to become a mother.

“She really did want to get married over the summer and then have a baby on the way by the holidays,” says a second friend. “I remember her saying to us, ‘I’m having a baby before my next birthday’, and it wasn’t even a question. She would always just say it feels right and that she knew he would become the father of her future children.”

You can see some photos from this “baby shower” here. OK! Mag also points out that Jessica is now wearing easily-identifiable maternity clothes, specifically from Pickles & Ice Cream. Oh, and a source tells the mag that Jessica got pregnant really quickly after making the decision to go off birth control – which beats my theory that Eric “trapped” Jessica into it (because boys can “trap” girls too).

As I’ve said before, I’m really starting to wonder if Jessica has changed for the better – I’m wondering if she’s even concerned with famewhoring her bump, or Beyonce-style “bumpwhoring”. Jessica has been so much more low-key lately, so it wouldn’t surprise me if she just “confirmed” her pregnancy over Twitter and then just kept staying low-key. That would impress me, but I’m also kind of hoping she bumpwhores, just because it would be more fun.

    I hope she’s pregs, I wanna see this baby!

  2. Scarlett O'Hara says:

    I didn’t think “nice Christian girls” got knocked up before marriage. So much for that …

  3. The Truth Fairy says:

    I always thought Jessica’s mom looked similar to Britney’s mom. Weird.

  4. Ashley says:

    I hope that her child will be more useful to the world than her/his useless mother.

  5. Alejandro says:

    Why is she stringing this along? Hoping for a bigger paycheck or more attention?

  6. Psyren says:

    Wow. U mad huh Ashley? I wouldn’t call her useless. She’s has a successful clothing line and had a successful music career at one point so she’s not nearly as useless as many others I could name. She’s dumb but harmless IMO.

  7. Jayna says:

    Telling she isn’t married. I think buyer’s remorse for her and rethinking marriage to him.

  8. kelbear says:

    @The Truth Fairy, I have always thought the same thing.

  9. Happy21 says:

    This mag has a story called “Who Else is Pregnant – And Who’s Just Fat” Seriously!!! I know its a tabloid but still that is fucking awful!

    I don’t think it will be long before she confirms the pregnancy with this cover story.

  10. connie says:

    Happy I noticed the same thing!! wtf?

  11. LL says:

    Who is the jacked looking brunette in the photos?? Her mom???

  12. minnie says:

    please tell me, did she actually confirmed it? or ist it just tabloid info with no interview at all, with just “insiders”?

  13. Kim says:

    The look on her mothers face says it all. Look how happy & excited she is and is helping Jessica walk.

    I think she will dump Eric eventually unless he mans up and gets a job & shows he can provide for a baby/family.

  14. Callli Pygian says:

    She looks like she’s pushing five months in that black dress.

  15. Victoria says:

    LOL. i don’t think Jessica is a Christian anymore. I don’t believe anyone in Hollywood believe in s Judaism or Christianity. They couldn’t the majority oof the projects they do if they were convicted. And I believe she also said having a chance to travel has shown her that there isn’t only one way to God or something to that affect. SO basically she ‘s defected.

    She is still sweet though. I like her a lot. Her “idiot” act was annoying, but hey if you like it I love it.

  16. DoMaJoReMc says:

    @Franny: Thanks for the link. WOW! That picture is really telling! I think she looks beautiful!
