Report: Jessica Simpson Expecting Baby Girl

I really don’t see how much longer Jessica Simpson can pretend she isn't pregnant. I'm guessing once that baby bump nears Octomom proportions, she's gonna come out with it. Guuuuys…I have some shocking news to tell you…

Simpson recently postponed her wedding to NFL star Eric Johnson for the second time. Between that and the photos of her alleged pregnant belly, it has everyone thinking she doesn’t want to walk down the aisle ready to pop. And who could blame her?

Now, friends say the singer is excited she's having a daughter. A source said: "She's telling people it's like winning the lottery, twice. Jessica really wanted to find out the baby's sex, she hates surprises. She and Eric are both so happy."

The couple are set to wed in Hawaii soon, and they have reportedly been painting the baby's nursery pink and are considering the names Morgan and Karen. Definitely go with Morgan, Jessica. Karen just doesn’t sound like a kid's name to me. Don't get me wrong, it's a fine name. But when I hear Karen, I just picture a bank teller processing your transaction and then asking her boss if she can go on her smoke break now. Not a little girl.

Jessica has said in the past that she looks forward to starting a family with Johnson, so we know this is something on her mind. "I definitely see myself having a family with Eric, so that's exciting to think about."

And Jessica's mom, Tina, recently revealed she's looking forward to having more grandchildren. She's already grandma to Bronx, the two-year-old son of Ashlee Simpson.

"Obviously I'm looking forward to having more grandkids. Bronx is the love of my life. I don't mind boys or girls, I'll take anything I get. I'm not picky!"

Gotta love that Southern wit.

So anyway, why exactly is Jessica not coming out with the news? Well, according to sources, the singer-turned-designer is shopping around for the best magazine deal. Her father, Joe Simpson is in contact with several publications in a bid to sign a deal. Page Six is reporting that the Simpsons are asking for half a million dollars to close the deal.

“We’re enjoying our commitment to each other,” Simpson said recently. “We want to take our time ... We might elope if it gets to that point.”

A rep for Simpson had no comment.
