Jessica Simpson Might Be Pregnant

Nick Lachey might’ve gotten remarried first, but if the rumors and “reports” are true, then Jessica Simpson beat her ex to something else: Multiple outlets say that the singer and one-time Newlyweds star might be expecting her first child.

But take this announcement with a grain of salt, since it’s coming from In Touch Weekly and not a more reputable source like People. They say that at fiancé Eric Johnson‘s 32nd birthday party recently, Jessica sent back her glass of champagne. From there, we jump to a source saying she’s already having “kooky cravings,” especially (this triggers our gag reflexes) nacho chips dipped in chocolate.

Celebitchy points to a recent blind item from Blind Gossip, posted a little over a week ago, that definitely seems to fit:

This female star has certainly had her ups and downs. Her career has gone up and down and has expanded over more than one creative medium. She has dated at least three or four famous guys, has been married to and divorced from another celebrity, and is a tabloid staple. Depending on who you talk to and which day it is, she is either gorgeous or ugly. Well, we know one thing for sure: she is pregnant! She is seven weeks along, and you should expect the announcement within the next couple of weeks. She could wait longer, but she wants to avoid the criticisms about her fluctuating weight. She thinks it will be good for people to know that she “has a baby on board, rather than a burrito on board.” Both she and her partner are very happy about the pregnancy. Oh, and they will be getting married, although the wedding will now happen after the baby is born.

The detail that most fits is “depending on the day, she’s either gorgeous or ugly”: Jess has certainly had a tough time of it in the media, getting constant criticism for her mom jeans and her fluctuating weight.

This would seem to explain the rumors that Jessica was getting cold feet and the wedding would be pushed off indefinitely, though In Touch says that she and Eric will get hitched before the baby arrives in the spring. Oh, and remember what I said about People? Celebuzz reports that the magazine is coming out with a “special pregnancy announcement” in the next few weeks. So we’ll hunker down and wait for a big announcement over Twitter or in the mag, and in the meantime scrutinize pics of Jessica like the one above.

When was the last time the Internet got so riled up over a rumor? …Oh right, the origin of Miley Cyrus‘ lingerie photo. But at least this piece of “news” is more wholesome.

    I really hope that comment about People Magazine being a reputable source was a sarcastic joke. I about died laughing and forgot about the rest of the article.

      I’m glad I made you laugh! …but actually, I was being semi-serious. I don’t read People much these days thanks to the immediacy of gossip blogs, but I do recall them actually being -correct- and not just guessing about stuff like celeb pregnancies. (Or maybe I’m still wearing my rose-colored glasses…)

    It’s true People is a reliable tabloid type magaine. I was in Hawaii once when David Hassellhoff was there, a wave knocked him over and he lost his bathing suit. Next publication People had the scoop….Many celebs sell their stories to People because they are reliable and tell the truth…

      That’s dedication! ^_^

      I wonder if there’s some comparison of how much each magazine spends… Obviously People has millions of bucks to pay folks like Brangelina for their kids, but I wonder if a publication like In Touch stores up a bunch of cash to blow on just one exclusive.
