Well, Jessica Simpson has confirmed what we’ve all known for a month! She’s pregnant with her second child just seven months after giving birth to little Maxwell Drew. Jessica tweeted the above photo with the message “Merry Christmas from my family to yours!” – and the photo featured little Maxi with the message “Big Sis”. It’s cute, I guess. Remember how Jessica announced her pregnancy on Halloween 2011? She tweeted a photo of herself in her (bump-tastic) mummy costume and “confirmed” that she was going to be a “mummy”. I feel like this is Jessica’s way of being clever. Is it actually clever? Or is it just… cloying? Eh.
It’s official: the stork is once again headed to Jessica Simpson‘s house!
Just seven months after the singer and actress delivered daughter Maxwell Drew, Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson are expecting their second child, the couple announced via Twitter Christmas Day.
Amid growing pregnancy speculation online, the Fashion Star mentor, 32, shared a photo of her baby girl wearing holiday pajamas and smiling in the sand atop the words, “BIG SIS.”
“Merry Christmas from my family to yours!” Simpson writes.
Recently, Simpson has been spotted around Los Angeles in loose-fitting clothing. She also appeared, in a figure-hugging black dress, at best friend Cacee Cobb‘s recent wedding to Donald Faison, where she served as maid of honor.
Simpson also had been touting her recent post-pregnancy weight loss of 60 lbs. after starring in commercials for Weight Watchers and working out with celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak.
For now, Weight Watchers is being nice about it. Just after Jessica tweeted the photo, WW tweeted, “Congrats to Jessica Simpson, Eric and big-sister-to-be Maxwell! Your WW family is so thrilled for you. What an amazing year you’ve had!” After a month of anger and betrayal, WW must feel like they’ve been handed lemons, so it’s best to make farty lemonade. They will stand by Jessica for now, they will run her new WW commercials, and then they will wash their hands of Jessica Simpson. Know when to fold ‘em, Weight Watchers.
Anyway, congrats to Jessica, Eric & Maxi! I’m actually looking forward to this second pregnancy!
