Seriously, is Jessica Simpson pregnant with Eric Johnson’s baby?


I wish we had these new photos of Jessica Simpson, but we don’t. GO HERE to see the pics of Jessica in Cabo San Lucas with her family. While Ashlee Simpson is parading around in a bikini, Jessica has been wearing a series of ponchos, muumuus and loose, oversized, long-sleeved blouses. Radar says Jessica is “doing little to dispel the pregnancy rumors that have been swirling around her for the last few months.”

Now, I usually defend Farty because when she gains weight, people often start yelling “Pregnant!” at her, and that kind of sucks. Farty gains and loses weight very quickly, and I think that most of the weight usually goes to her midsection and her boobs, which adds to the pregnancy speculation. Plus, chica can’t dress. She doesn’t know what flatters her figure, and she’s usually a hot mess. So is she really pregnant, or is this just a combination of weight gain and bad clothes? Well… I don’t know. There was this blind item last week:

This female star has certainly had her ups and downs. Her career has gone up and down and has expanded over more than one creative medium. She has dated at least three or four famous guys, has been married to and divorced from another celebrity, and is a tabloid staple. Depending on who you talk to and which day it is, she is either gorgeous or ugly. Well, we know one thing for sure: she is pregnant! She is seven weeks along, and you should expect the announcement within the next couple of weeks. She could wait longer, but she wants to avoid the criticisms about her fluctuating weight. She thinks it will be good for people to know that she “has a baby on board, rather than a burrito on board.” Both she and her partner are very happy about the pregnancy. Oh, and they will be getting married, although the wedding will now happen after the baby is born.

[From Blind Gossip]

It sounds a lot like Jessica, right? So, did Eric Johnson decide that Jessica was taking too long with the wedding plans and he decided to seal the (financial) deal another way? Yes, I’m saying that Eric may have “trapped” Jessica with an unplanned pregnancy – boys can do it too! Especially when those boys don’t have an income any other way.

Further evidence: Jessica hasn’t looked drunk in a while. Usually we have monthly sightings of her drunkenly clinging to Eric as they leave some restaurant or bar. I don’t even remember the last time I saw a photo of Farty drunk.

Oh, and she just tweeted this photo of herself:

    She just looks like she’s gained weight again to me…

  2. JaneWonderfalls says:

    She could be or it could just be her weight, Jessica Simpsons weight goes up and down.

  3. gee says:

    I would be so happy for her if she was preggo. I know that this dude is only about a step up from KFed, but these guys are kind of disposable anyway, and she’s make an adorable mom.

  4. ladybert62 says:

    She looks hugh to me – pregnant? Yes.

    Also, her face looks different – did she have some plastic surgery done?

  5. Quest says:

    It could be the angle, the breeze and that blouse…she could be preggers. Some of those other pics are looking like a baby bump

  6. brin says:

    That would be funny if he did “trap” her, leave it Jess to get preggers that way (“How’d that happen?”).

  7. LIVEALOT says:

    She has great taste in shoes. Now if only she would retire the denim cut-off shorts she’d be on to something.

  8. Nanz says:

    I always thought she would announce her pregnancy at the moment of conception. I will be shocked/impressed if she kept the secret this long.

  9. DavidBowie says:

    He needs to burn those cutoffs…a billion dollar clothing empire, huh?

  10. melissa says:

    Saying this in the most unmeangirl way, I think she has just gained (more) weight. She wears the short shorts, cuz her legs still look awesome (I wish mine were that thin), but she is an apple shaped girl, thru and thru. 5 lbs go right to her midsection. And I think she has gained 5 lbs several times over, now.

  11. serena says:

    To me she’s pregnant, I totally see it in one of the photos. But again it can totally be a burrito bump too, this time it doesn’t see so um.

  12. Lindsey says:

    It looks to me like she’s got a serious case of pregnant face.

  13. DarkEmpress says:

    I still say she belongs with Nick and Britney with Justin. The good ol 90′s.

  14. Hautie says:

    I hope that Jessica has enough sense not to marry him.

    I hope she has all the children she wants. But legally marrying this boy, will lead to a life time of misery.

    (But I am tending to believe the pregnancy rumor this time.)

  15. Lukie says:

    All I know is her boobs look HUGE! Those look like pregnant boobs to me….

  16. Tierra says:

    Idk, I think she just may be gaining weight. If it is due to a baby on board then thats a pretty big baby already if she’s only 7 weeks. I would have thought 3-4 months but it could just be the clothes, her legs still look good.

  17. Pix says:

    She sure is preggers and way more than 7 or 8 weeks along. She looks well into her 2nd trimester.
    If she is not pregnant then someone needs to step in and tell her to Put Those Fritos Down!

  18. Raina says:

    How can she look so cute and normal in the twitter pic and so huge in those paparazzi photos. Yes, I realize she can control the angle of the photo she posted but I doubt she’s sitting around photo-shopping camera pics real quick before she uploads it and there’s a major difference there. Bizarre.

    Also, what’s up with Ashlee Simpson’s boobs in those pics? They look all wonky. No matter how much weight Jessica gains, she’s still the prettier sister IMO. Ashlee is just ugg.

  19. honeybunz says:

    Yep!! I read a blind item that sounded very much like her!! And that they were still getn married but just after the baby is born!! Bt it said she was about 7wks…but she looks more than 7wks here….hmmmm

  20. Melinda says:

    I’m buying the rumor this time. Her face looks different.

  21. fabchick says:

    I think she is pregnant. It’s kinda showing in her face.

  22. anjasmomma says:

    She absolutely looks preggo!! Good for Jessica! Hopefully she is cause otherwise that is some unfortunate weight gain.

  23. shocked&appalled says:

    @LIVEALOT are you kidding? Her shoes are usually the worst thing about her outfits, which are, admittedly, often unflattering. I call them hooker-ware deluxe. They are probably expensive, but look cheap. Eeeew.

  24. lilibet says:

    Could be pregnant but more likely to just be fed up of people constantly commenting on her weight so has just gone for a HUGE top to cover all her bits……and it’s still in the press!

  25. the original bellaluna says:

    First of all, that heart ring redefines the word tacky. Dear goodness, how gauche. (Please, nobody tell the dimwit what that word means; she’ll take “gauche” as a compliment and I don’t want to hurt her feelings. It’d be like kicking a puppy.)

    Now, onto the “preggers rumours:” her face, rack, and belly look pregnant. And IF she’s pregnant, she’s further along than 7 weeks. If she’s only 7 weeks, gf is going to BLOW UP.

  26. says:

    I’m going with pregnant too, but she is way more than 7 weeks. Most women don’t even or barely show at 7 weeks, for a first pregnancy.

  27. It is ME!! says:

    @tierra and @honeybunz: It’s called first trimester bloating. I had it. It totally sucks.

    I agree with those who say she is pregnant. Her face is different.

  28. It is ME!! says:

    People, it IS possible to look big in early pregnancy due to bloating. She could very well be 7 weeks or so and look like she is 4 months along. Trust me.

  29. palermo says:

    Seven weeks? I’d say more like seven months.

  30. searching4grace says:

    Is that a $20 clasped between their hands? How appropriate for this relationship.

  31. miss_bhaven says:

    She has some facial bloat, but other than that, its hard to tell. I’m just not seeing a bump….She really needs to lose those horrible “daisy dukes”.

  32. Sumodo1 says:

    Oh, Jess! Did you throw away your birth control pills because they made you fat? Well, look at you now! (Yeesshhhh! She is lucky to have her “empire” because she is going to be paying out LOTS to have the “perfect” husband, baby, house, staff. Good luck, genius!)

  33. bubbly says:

    LOL “Her career has gone up and down and has expanded” TO HER ABDOMEN AND CHEST AREA AS WELL…she’s still growing…TO THE SIDES! HAHAHAHAHA…Since Nick beat her to the altar now the other way to get ahead of them is getting knocked up, DUH!

  34. Jennifer says:

    We criticize people who are a little overweight or a lot overweight for wearing to tight of clothing (who wants to see their fat?) Then, when someone is doing the right thing and covering it up, the media goes crazy. Personally, I like to cover up my flab, it not only saves onlookers but it makes me feel more secure and I think that is what Jessica is doing.

  35. Lemon Drops says:

    she looks pregnant in the face.

  36. 4Real says:

    Gawd I hope she is pregnant…that would explain why she’s gained so much wait suposedly while planning a wedding. That Tan dress she wore a couple weeks ago sealed it for me.

  37. Firecracker says:

    After that blind last week, I’d say yes, definitely. It has to be her!

  38. Emily says:

    Ewww… those linked photos of Ashlee strutting he stuff with her ass cheeks hanging out, in front of her DAD…. I think I am going to lose my lunch.

  39. Truthful says:

    hmmm, since Nic and his new wife are trying, I wouldn’t be surprisd.

    Jess WON!! LOL

  40. mzjask says:

    im callin preggo on this one too and i hope it’s true!!

  41. Happy21 says:

    I’d like to say she looks preggers but her weight does fluctuate and she does put on weight in her tummy when she does so its likely she has just put on a few pounds. I feel bad though if she is NOT pregnant that people think that she is. I could not even imagine being in the public eye and having nothing but scrutiny when you just put on some weight. Is she preggers? Is she just fat?, etc. The pressure would be terrible. If she’s just put on weight she isn’t exactly picking outfits that are flattering to her mid-section.

    It’d be cute if she was pregnant but I don’t think that she is. I think she’s just put on weight.

  42. hmmmm says:

    She’s got the look of pregnancy … mainly in her face. But if she’s pregnant I think she gets married before the baby is born not after. Her daddy would make sure of that.

    And, I don’t understand how Eric can be happy just following Jessica around and not having a job. The guy doesn’t have self-respect.

  43. Heather M (Heather) says:

    I’m torn. I thought she looked preg in some of the shots when I first saw them, but aren’t those the same horrid daisy dukes she always wears? I doubt they have an elastic band, and they are kind of mom jeans daisy dukes (ie high waisted), so I’m just not sure.

    I kind of hope she is because wearing a poncho to the beach is just wrong…unless you are pregnant.

    It’s still wrong, actually, but we all know Jessica’s IQ is low, including her fashion IQ.

  44. Heather M (Heather) says:

    Whoa. I just followed the link and saw the July photos, where she looks at least 4 months pregnant. That means she should be absolutely huge right now.

  45. David Oakes says:

    Very educational appreciate it, I’m sure your trusty audience may possibly want a good deal more blog posts along these lines maintain the good content.

  46. Your mama says:

    Preggers if you ask me. Good for her. Haters will always hate.

  47. Denise says:

    I am now officially tired of tabloid pregnancy watches; they really consumed the entire summer as every celebutard with a womb and a man decided to get knocked up. Way over it!

  48. ahoyhoy says:

    Good for Jessica! That girl could use some unconditional love in her life!
    And she is GORGEOUS at any weight.

  49. Keiko says:

    She seems like a sweet girl, hope this is true.

  50. G says:

    Pregnant. There’s something about the way he’s holding her hand, now. Like he’s protecting her.

  51. Erin says:

    her rack got way bigger. seems suspicious to me!

  52. Firecracker says:

    BG’s calling it solved, so she is.

  53. Dirty Martini says:

    Well ….that would be one way to trump Nick for beating her back to the alter.

    I’m thinking shes in the family way.

  54. Redd says:

    Pregnant, but suspect they are already married in secret and will have the big ginormous blow out wedding after the baby, no way is her daddy going to allow her to birth a bastard.

  55. Miranda says:

    Good for her if she is pregnant. I can’t help but respect this girl. She makes a BILLION a year in her shoe and clothing line, so she’s no dummy. I love love love her shoes. She can’t act and she can’t sing…but she certainly has a brain that head.

  56. Boe says:

    I cannot thank you enough for the blog.Much thanks again. Fantastic.
