We’ve suspected it for weeks and now the news has finally been confirmed and on Halloween no less — Jessica Simpson is pregnant! The singer announced the exciting news on JessicaSimpson.com today in a rather clever picture. While posing in a mummy costume, the Hollywood star purposefully cradles her belly, which includes the cleverly punned caption: “It’s true – I’m going to be a mummy!” The fashion designer has been the subject of pregnancy buzz for weeks after photos surfaced of her shielding her midsection at the airport and later showing off a distinct baby bump in a tight fitting outfit on the streets of New York City.
This will be the first child for Jessica and her fiancee Eric Johnson, who proposed to her in November 2010. In the past, she has expressed her desire to have children with her future hubby, stating, “I definitely see myself having a family with him, so that’s exciting to think about.” It looks like they’re well on their way. At least she’s no longer trying to make a profit off of her exciting (yet unsurprising) news. Congratulations to the mother-to-be!
