Singer-turned-business mogul Jessica Simpson fuels pregnancy rumors after being recently sighted at a friend’s wedding. The mom-of-two was photographed wearing an outfit that seems to be hiding what appears to be a baby bump. Could she be pregnant with baby number three?
Last Saturday, June 10, Jessica Simpson attended Diana Ross’ son, Ross Naess’ nuptials at Rancho Dos Pueblos in Goleta, California. While Jessica was only a guest, her sister, Ashley Simpson, is the groom’s sister-in-law and served as a bridesmaid at the Bohemian-themed wedding. It was clearly a family affair, as both the Simpson sisters’ husbands were also in attendance.
The paparazzi photos, obtained by the Daily Mail, show Jessica Simpson in a sparkly cocktail dress that flaunted her curvy figure. While the dress is tight at the bottom part, it is definitely roomy in the midsection area; the perfect outfit for someone who may be trying to hide a growing belly.
Interestingly, the dress looks very similar to the Michael Kors creation Jessica had worn once before. Fans may remember that back in 2011, the fashion retail mogul guested as a judge on Project Runway wearing a very similar frock. Back then, Jessica was also rumored to be pregnant with her first child. She was tight-lipped when pressed for a baby announcement, only to confirm the pregnancy one month later.
According to Radar Online, Jessica has been the subject of pregnancy rumors since last month, when the 36-year-old singer was spotted at another wedding. Jessica wore a floor-length black dress with Martini prints, as seen on her Instagram post. Her choice of outfit was ironic because a source who was at the party reported that Jessica refused to drink alcohol throughout the affair. The insider also noted that Jessica appeared to be “much larger in the middle.”
She certainly looks at least three months along.
For many years, Jessica Simpson has been persistently hounded with talks about her fluctuating weight. Last year, she made headlines when she flaunted a visibly thinner figure on her Instagram account. Now that she has seemed to put on more pounds again, fans speculate that the reason for her extra weight may be because she’s carrying baby number three.
However, Jessica squashed the pressing baby rumors when she guested on Ellen last May 22. Ellen noted that she was pregnant during the last two times that she’s been on the talk show. Jessica happily announced that this time around, she is definitely not pregnant.
“It’s very exciting, I’m not pregnant on your show!”
When Ellen asked her if she was sure she’s not pregnant, the singer-slash-businesswoman revealed that she and her husband Eric Johnson were taking birth control measures.
“We got an IUD. Nothing is gonna get in that uterus…I have two beautiful children, and I’m not having a third.”
But fans noted that throughout the interview, Jessica seemed a little “puffy” and “out of breath;” two signs that indicate early pregnancy.
“Not to be mean, but she looks pregnant. I genuinely thought she was kidding when she said she’s not,” one fan noted on the YouTube video.
Jessica Simpson married NFL player Eric Johnson on July 5, 2014. They have two children, a daughter and a son; Maxwell Drew, 5, and Ace Knute, 4.
Maxwell, Jessica’s mini-me, recently celebrated her fifth birthday last month. Jessica threw a lavish mermaid-themed birthday party for her daughter, complete with mermaid costumes. She posted a family photo celebrating the event, which shows Maxwell wearing a bikini and heavy makeup. Jessica was instantly slammed by internet fans for letting her daughter pose in such a way. The singer responded to haters by posting yet another photo of Maxwell wearing a bikini.
