Jessica Simpson arrived at LAX on Monday evening with her mom Tina Simpson and was suspiciously wearing very loose fitting clothes, doing nothing to conceal those pesky pregnancy rumors. She was also photographed holding on to her mother as she made her way past paparazzi at the airport.
Jessica and her fiancé Eric Johnson have been the subject of baby rumors ever since she denied a glass of champagne at Eric's 32nd birthday which is not like Jessica at all to turn down alcohol. She was also seen wearing a leopard print cover-up while in Mexico.
You know that fear of asking a fat woman "when are you expecting" only to find out that she's not pregnant and actually just overweight? That's the fine line we're walking with Jessica Simpson right now. She clearly has a baby bump, she's not doing anything to hide the size of her stomach, but I can't tell if inside that baby bump is an actual baby or just a burrito left over from lunch.
Anyways, Jennifer was in Louisiana over the weekend to promote her Jessica Simpson Collection at a Dillard's in New Orleans. At the LAX airport she wore a stretchy waist banded maxi skirt and an oversized black sweater that prominently displayed a round belly.
Her reps have refused to confirm either way if she's expecting, but a source has just told Radaronline that she is indeed pregnant and is planning to make the announcement once she's past her first trimester.
The source says, "It's still early in the pregnancy, and Jessica has decided to wait before sharing her happiness with her fans. She has begun telling family and friends the exciting news."
However, Eric Johnson's dad has either not been alerted about the news or is just playing coy, "I haven't heard anything," says Johnson's father, "Is she pregnant? I better give them a call if she is!"
Simpson and Johnson have also postponed their wedding and she's publicly stated that she hasn't started looking at dresses yet. Some think it's because she doesn't want to walk down the aisle pregnant and would rather wait until after the baby so she can look better in her wedding gown. Other's are saying they might just elope which is why they are so quiet about wedding details.
One thing that Jessica IS planning to announce is that she and little sis Ashlee Simpson will launch their clothing lines for tweens later this month.
Ashlee tweeted, "@JessicaSimpson and I are SO excited to introduce our girls' clothing collection launching this month! YAY!!!"
