As we all know, Jessica Simpson, the fiance of former NFL player Eric Johnson, is pregnant. She is reportedly due next month and there have been whispers that she is expecting a girl, as she was recently spotted shopping for all things pink. She has kept mum on the gender of the little one, so we’ll have to wait and see if the rumors are in fact true. Find out what the singer had to say last week in our Sports WAG Quote of the Week column below.
Lots of great things happening for Jessica in March — not until will she become a first time Mom, she will also see her new show, Fashion Star, premiere on March 13th on NBC. During a conference call to promote the show, Jess said…
“I wasn’t pregnant when we shot it. It will be amazing to see myself with a waistline. I’ll be like a big blob sitting on the couch watching myself thin.”
A big blob, eh Jessica? Yeah, that’s pretty much how I felt too when I was about ready to pop. Doesn’t it seem like Jess has been pregnant forever? She finally admitted that she was expecting back on Halloween, when she tweeted a pic of herself in a Mummy costume, holding her belly, along with the caption, “It’s true, I’m going to be a mummy!”. Too cute!
Jess reportedly waited to announce her pregnancy because she had hoped to snag a magazine deal worth a purported $500,000, but evidently no one was interested. Perhaps we’ll see a deal when the baby is born, right? Would those baby pics be worth $500,000? I suppose we’ll find out soon enough.
Word is that the millionaire fashion maven and her former NFL player fiance will wed some time after the baby is born, with Jess enlisting the help of Weight Watchers to shed those extra pounds. I have no doubt that the pop star will get her figure back, but regardless if she does or not, she’s beautiful in my book.
