Not only is Jessica Simpson officially pregnant, but her size already has Gossip Gawkers speculating that the star could be carrying twins.
“A few people have hinted at it, but she’s being very coy about the whole thing. She’s been like the cat that ate the canary for months now, so there’s really no telling how big this secret may be,” one snoop tells Britain’s Daily Mirror.
Simpson took to Twitter last week to announce her pregnancy, posing in a bandage-like ensemble on Halloween complete with the caption:
“It’s true – I’m going to be a mummy!”
Not that it was news to anyone with a semblance of working vision. For months Jessica, wearing oversized hoodies and covering up with huge handbags – had been the subject of chitter chatter as to the occupancy of her womb. Never one to shy away from the press, Jess’ silence was rumored to be due to her attempts to land $500,000 for the exclusive announcement of her pregnancy. Others say Jess kept quiet about her baby (or babies) on the way because she feared the news would alienate some of her more traditional fans.
“She knows her whole image depends on her being a good Christian girl with a strong moral center.”
Jessica hasn’t responded to the twin reports, but she is explaining why she’s shelved her Hawaiian wedding plans to focus on impending motherhood. The singer-turned-designer been engaged to baby daddy Eric Johnson, a former NFL ace since Nov. 2010, but she told Entertainment Tonight this week that she has no plans to tie the knot before the baby is born.
“We didn’t even have a [wedding] date nailed down. I’m going to wait until everything is over so I don’t end up being a hormonal Bridezilla.”
