Jessica Simpson just tweeted a picture of her 8-month daughter Maxwell playing in the sand in Hawaii next to the words “BIG SIS” …. which can only mean one thing.
Jessica Simpson is pregnant!
“Merry Christmas from my family to yours!” Simpson, 32, wrote as the caption. In the adorable snapshot, Maxwell is dressed in a red-and-white striped onesie, a red bow in her hair and has a big smile on her face.
The rumors have been swirling for weeks – but Jessica has been mum about the mom situation … until now.
Speculation began last month when it first reported about the pregnancy. Sources told the magazine that Simpson, who recently lost 60 pounds following her previous pregnancy, was not expecting to be expecting again any time soon.
“It definitely wasn’t planned. But yes, Jessica is pregnant again,” the source told the Us Magazine. “She really is overjoyed!”
Actually after a lot of time of pregnancy speculation, the singer-turned-fashion entrepreneur has finally confirmed guesses.
Wearing a form-fitting black dress, Simpson tried to hide her growing baby bump at BFF Cacee Cobb’s wedding Dec. 15.
“I was the maid of honor last night for my BF Cacee Cobb,” she tweeted. “She was the most beautiful bride I have ever seen in my life!” The pregnant star included a photo of herself and Johnson at the wedding, with her bouquet covering her belly.
During Thanksgiving, Simpson posted a holiday card to her official website and Twitter page that may have alluded to the new bundle of joy.
“I am so grateful for my new lil family! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!” she wrote.
According to the source, “As Jessica and her [fiance] were about to leave the party somebody asked her, ‘How’s the baby?” To which she replied, ‘Which one?! I’m pregnant again!’
After welcoming her first child in May, Simpson became a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers. So now the big question is: how will the pregnancy affect her $4 million deal with Weight Watchers?
After signing the a $4 million deal, the fashion mogul has been flaunting her recent post-pregnancy weight loss of 60 lbs and working out with celebrity trainer Harley Parternak. As far as her contract, Weight Watchers still plans on working with Simpson on the future.
The company said: “There have been no changes to our contract with Jessica and we have a great relationship with her.”
And Weight Watchers is really keeping it merry today. The company tweeted, “Congrats to @JessicaSimpson, Eric and big-sister-to-be Maxwell! Your WW family is so thrilled for you. What an amazing year you’ve had!”
The holiday announcement comes just seven months after the birth of Simpson’s first child with former NFL player Eric Johnson. She has been engaged to Johnson for two years.
Simpson is certainly a fan of holiday pregnancy announcements. On Halloween 2011, she announced she was pregnant with her first child through a photo of herself dressed as a mummy with the message, “It’s True! I am going to be a mummy.”
