OMG!! Jessica Simpson is pregnant. AGAIN. Seven months after giving birth to little Maxwell, her first child. Us Weekly is running the story on this week’s cover, although they don’t have a solid confirmation from Jessica or anyone around her. I still think it’s true, though, mostly because I doubt Us Weekly would have put it on the cover unless they were sure. Plus, the Enquirer/Radar has the same story too! The Enquirer says that Jessica is nine weeks along right now and “She’s trying to keep it a secret until she makes it safely through her first trimester.” Here’s what Us Weekly says:
Christmas is still nearly four weeks away, but Jessica Simpson got her biggest — and totally unexpected! — present early: Another baby on the way! Seven months after giving birth to daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson, the star is once again expecting, the new issue of Us Weekly exclusively confirms.
“It definitely wasn’t planned. But yes, Jessica is pregnant again,” a source reveals to Us. The surprise baby-to-be is the second for the singer and Fashion Star mentor, 32, and fiance Eric Johnson. (A rep for Simpson had no comment.)
Engaged for the past two years, Simpson and former NFL pro Johnson, 33, welcomed Maxwell — a whopping 9 pound, 13 ounce bundle of joy! — on May 1 of this year.
And while Simpson felt energized about her admirable 70-pound slimdown post-baby, her greatest inspiration is being a mom.
“Motherhood is a dream,” she told Katie Couric back in September. “It really is absolutely amazing.”
Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to her 5.7 million Twitter followers Nov. 22, she gushed: “I am so grateful for my new lil family!”
Notes the source of pregnancy number two: “She really is overjoyed!”
You know what? I love Farty. She is a gift. I love that “it definitely wasn’t planned” and the basic assumption that Farty loves sex and loves to eat and why wouldn’t she get pregnant again right away? I enjoyed her first pregnancy, mostly because she was so over-the-top with her TMI and her lack of diet, but my guess is that she won’t go crazy on the all-you-can-eat buffets this time. But who knows? I’m also guessing that there are some people at Weight Watchers who are going to lose their jobs over this. They paid her all of that money to lose weight, and what does she do? She gets knocked up again right away and she’ll use it as an excuse to walk away from her WW contract.
Oh, and congrats to Jessica and Eric!
