Jessica Simpson shows off her alleged first trimester baby bump in Beverly Hills

Jessica Simpson is definitely pregnant again. No, there still hasn’t been a solid confirmation, but I definitely think that Jessica would have come out and denied Us Weekly’s cover story by now if the story was false. Plus, there’s the little fact of these new photos of Jess. She was spotted out and about in Beverly Hills yesterday, doing some Christmas shopping with her former assistant Cacee Cobb. Note the profile shot in particular – that’s not ALL fabric, you know? Even if Jessica is only 9 or 10 weeks along, it makes sense that she’s already showing a little bit. It was the same for her first pregnancy too. Jessica just has one of those bodies – she starts showing early.

With the holidays nigh, an unexpected second pregnancy isn’t going to prevent Jessica Simpson from partaking in one of her favorite pastimes: Shopping! On Monday Dec. 10, the pregnant-again star, 31, was photographed picking up some wares at a Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills with one of her closest pals and former assistant, Cacee Cobb.

Clutching a shopping bag (adorned with seasonal-appropriate snowflakes) from the high-end chain, the Fashion Star mentor looked more radiant and glamorous than ever: Wearing oversized tinted sunglasses, bright-red lipstick, tight black top and pants, a black blazer with gold trim — and stiletto boots!

The high heels should come as no surprise. While pregnant with her first child, daughter Maxwell, 7 months, the style mogul joked (optimistically!) that she’d deliver her baby in four-inch YSL heels. Alas, the star eventually cried mercy in the late stages of pregnancy number one — giving up her beloved heels for flip-flops.

Nearly two weeks after Us Weekly broke news of Simpson’s second pregnancy, the star has remained mum on the subject. (Her rep had no comment.)

Just before Thanksgiving, Simpson (engaged to Eric Johnson for over two years) sounded tellingly philosophical, retweeting a quote on Twitter.

“Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know everything happens for a reason,” the tweet said.

Regardless, a source close to Simpson told Us Weekly that the singer “loves being a mom…She really is overjoyed.”

I really am happy for Jessica. I mean, I think it’s really funny that she basically got pregnant again (“accidentally”) so she could get off of her Weight Watchers diet. But I’m happy for her too, because I think she enjoys being a mom and despite his K-Fed-y status, I believe Eric Johnson is enjoying fatherhood too.

Two things: I still don’t really know if Jessica and Eric will end up getting married before she gives birth again. I don’t see why it would be a big deal this time around, but I can also see how Jessica might feel like “sooner is better than later.” If it happens, I’m thinking a “surprise” Christmas or New Year’s wedding? Either that or a destination wedding for Valentine’s Day. Last thing: Jessica is probably not much further along than Duchess Kate. Isn’t that amazing?!? Jessica and Kate could conceivably give birth within days of each other.

    This just reminds me of what Dolly Parton said when she was on Stephen Colbert the other day about growing up in a huge family…
    ‘We weren’t Catholic we were just horny hicks’
    I am happy for her, I find it hilarious how there clearly was no family planning involved.

    Jessica’s hair: real or fake?

    also, after what her parents are going through, it may not be as important to get married now-it wouldn’t shock me if they waited years..

    Get ready for 8 more months of farty watch.

    Poor Jessica ….she may be like me….and Loretta Lynn…I have 4 kids in 6 yrs before I figured out what I was doing wrong and put a stop to it ! ;)
    I’m glad I had my kiddies close together gave them playmates and they were each others best friends…..till the hit their teens of course…..
    and Jessica reminds me of myself in the fact that I started showing the instead the darn egg was fertilized I truly believe and by the time I was 4 mos people were screaming twins and It was always just one…setting wwwwwwway out front…..
    But if they are going to marry they need to just get the deed done and over with……don’t you think you waited long enough….if you wait for things to be perfect you will need get there…..just saying……

    How can she walk in those heels? Seems like she would tip over.

    But congrats to her. She looks weeks ahead of the Duchess – but who knows?

  6. ShazBot says:

    Remember when Will and Kate’s engagament trumped Jessica’s engagement? And now the Royal pregnancy, and inevitable baby, has done it to Jessica again! She must really be getting sick of them haha

    Kate’s birth would kind of steal Jessica’s thunder though.

    Who in the hell go shopping in 6 inch heels? Only in LA. LOL

  10. nancypants says:

    Hmmm….In that one photo she appears to be trying-on a FLAT boot.
    Good idea, girl.

  11. KellyinSeattle says:

    Yes, I was checking out the shoes in the photo at the shoe store, too! She looks healthy and content, so that’s good to see.

  12. Bodhi says:

    I very seriously doubt that she got pregnant again to get out of her WW concert. Some people are super fertile & it just happens.

    I have a friend who had 3 boys in 2.5 years (all single babies & the 3rd has a very rare genetic disorder). I don’t know how she does it, but she is the most organized person I’ve ever met.

  13. Isa says:

    I see the belly! It’s big for her first trimester. Soon we are going to start reading about her weight and how big she is but who cares if she’s happy.

  14. Jaxx says:

    Already huge. Go figure. At least she has an excuse to quick sucking in the belly she never really lost. And I imagine she’s happy she can lose the three layer of Spanx that she had to wear for the big reveal.

    I don’t want to think about her vagina anymore . Or her double chins . And i highly doubt she’s going to be mentioning her daisy duke shape during this pregnancy .. I think she knows those days are ovah!!!
    I do think her body is going to def be thick from now on .. I dont care except for the fact it’s all we are going to hear about after the birth of this one .. Hopefully no more over sharing with this since the excitement of her flatulence will be old news ..

    • Yeah Yeah Yeah says:

      Spot on. I can’t stand the thought of another 7 or so months of belly holding, sappy quotes and speculations about how much she weighs now. I also can’t stand another 7 months of every woman on here telling long winded stories about their pregnancies. It starts to look more like a “Mommy and Me” blog than a gossip site.

    I remember she held out officially confirming her first pregnancy hoping for a big payout but it was very obvious she was expecting.She doesn’t look bad here at all-doubt she did it to get out of a WW contract. Hope she has a healthy pregnancy and baby.

    why are we knocking Jess & her pregnancy have you been reading the internet & post baby stories.. I mean really all the women that have just deleivered are all on there experiences & lots of talk but for some reason Jessica is not allowed to share her experience. She did not get pregnant to get out of her contract with WW & WW has a plan & it includes Jessica. Eric is not a K FED either but fits the gossipy stories. He does not have Jessicas wealth but comes from his pwn wealth as does Drew Barrymore’s husband.. Both men into a high degree of art. Have you noticed how much they look alike.. Anyways back to Jessica. She clearly is happy & never had any intention of getting into Daisey duke.. What she did say was she wanted to be comfortable & where ever that weight was she would be happy with it. 60 lbs in 7 months is right on target with WW what more could they want & ask for. WW is fine & so is Jessica.

    She obviously shows very early & probably will have another close to 10 lb baby.. Eric was slose to 10 lbs.. OH & by the way her cover sold very well for People compared to other covers with new babies she topped them all & as far as Kate goes & her big splash Jess outsold that cover too.. I think its awesome to hold out for that payout & get it.. Many try & don’t succed. I thought how she announced her preganacy was brilliant as in yes Im going to be a MUMMY on Halloween & I’d bet she may do something very cute for this one too. Credit must be given where due & she has great ideas.

    Yestersay with her & Cacee Shopping they needed a police escort to get home & from shopping.

    hahah, the guy in the first picture is like.. never mind the baby belly, where are those tatas everyone is talking about?

  20. telesma says:

    I can believe she’s only 3 months. With my first pregnancy I hardly showed at all, not even 2 days before she was born, and I was not overweight by any stretch of the imagination (underweight at the start, actually). Then with the second, by the third month my belly was huge – bigger than it was right before the first one was born.

    My theory is that tight abdominal muscles kept me from showing much the first time, but in the second round they were already stretched, so *boom*. I may have lost the baby weight by that point, but most definitely had not worked those abs.

  21. Vesper says:

    Jessica has been wearing loose baggy clothing and carrying large purses since the so-called weight loss. While she might be pregnant, I think it’s likely too early for her to be showing. She is still “plump” from her first pregnancy, imo.

  22. kct says:

    It would be funny after all the TMI of the last pregnancy that she would remain very hush-hush about this one and let us all keep guessing for the next few months. Way to play it, Jess!
