Jessica Simpson has confirmed the obvious. She’s pregnant. The engaged singer announced the news with a Halloween picture of her on her website. She’s dressed as a ‘mummy’ and holding her already very noticeable baby bump.
She wrote: “It’s true, I’m going to be a mummy!”
The baby will be the first for her and her fiance, Eric Johnson. Simpson has been the subject of baby speculation for months, thanks to an increasingly undeniable baby bump she’s been sporting during recent outings in Los Angeles, New York and elsewhere.
Yale grad and former NFL pro Johnson, 32, proposed to Simpson in November 2010 after about six months of dating. “I met a wonderful man,” Simpson tweeted of Johnson in September. “Damn, I’m lucky.”
Simpson’s bun in the oven isn’t the first grandchild for her parents Joe and Tina Simpson: That’s Bronx, the 2-year-old son of Ashlee Simpson, Jessica’s younger sister, and her ex Pete Wentz. “I can’t wait to have kids,” the “Irresistible” singer gushed on The View last year.
And, indeed, Simpson tweeted of a prescient dream in March 2011. “Dreamt that I had a son named Tenacious D,” she wrote. “That was a strange one.”
The star’s wedding plans, however, are still up in the air. “She can’t figure out what kind of day she wants. Some days she wants a big wedding in Hawaii, then other days she wants something closer to home,” a pal recently told new Us Weekly.
