At this point, do we really need an announcement? Jessica Simpson was photographed at LAX wearing black leggings and a stretchy black Lycra top. And guys, if the Beyonce pregnancy conspiracy is true, Jessica Simpson is probably the one carrying the kid. Because she looks really, really pregnant. And black leggings and a stretchy top? She might as well be wearing mom jeans and a sweater that says, “I love my kids.” She’s not exactly trying to hide anything anymore.
She did, however, carry one of her favorite totes—an oversized leopard print bag she has occasionally used to hide her midsection. Well her midsection has gotten so big, it's now making that oversized bag look like a coin purse.
Speculation of her pregnancy started back in July, and there’s really no denying it anymore. And it’s not just Jessica’s appearance that’s fueling the pregnancy rumors. She’s been acting like a pregnant woman, too.
A couple of weeks ago, Jessica’s mother, Tina, helped her to her car. Tina held on to her daughter’s arm and back as she walked her into a car. Not exactly normal mom-daughter behavior past the age of ten.
So why isn’t Jessica going public with the big news? According to sources, she and her father, Joe Simpson, are shopping around for the best deal. Yes, these people get paid to announce what my friends announce for free on Twitter: “So it turns out it wasn’t just gas. #ImPreggo.”
According to the New York Post, Simpson is looking to sell a story about her pregnancy and announce it to the media source that offers her the biggest paycheck. Right now, her offer is in the $500,000 range.
In Touch is reporting that Jessica is in her second trimester and already knows she’s having a girl. She’s also reportedly decorating her nursery already.
“She’s already having kooky cravings,” a source told the mag, listing cheese popcorn, nacho chips dipped in chocolate and virgin margaritas among those cravings.
At this rate, Jessica isn’t going to make this announcement until the kid has entered college. Back in September, Jessica postponed her wedding to NFL player Eric Johnson. Some sources were claiming she was “miserable.” There were even rumors that Jessica pushed it back so she could get a breast reduction.
"She thinks if she downsizes her breasts, she will look smaller," a source told In Touch. "She's never loved having a huge chest."
I mean, there are a lot of reasons a gal might postpone a wedding. But not wanting to walk down the aisle while you have contractions is probably at the top of the list.
