Yesterday, Jessica Simpson was spotted shielding a possible baby bump, as rumors of a second pregnancy persist.
Simpson, 32, was out shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills, CA with friends, including former assistant, Cacee Cobb. Photos show the star dressed in a covering black blazer, with a large Saks bag strategically placed over her stomach.
Simpson’s first child with fiance Eric Johnson, Maxwell Drew, is only 7 months old. The two have yet to set a date to wed, and may choose to postpone their wedding indefinitely if Simpson is pregnant again. Simpson said before Maxwell’s birth “We didn’t even have a [wedding] date nailed down,” she said. “I’m going to wait until everything is over so I don’t end up being a hormonal Bridezilla.” Simpson was previously married to her Newlyweds costar Nick Lachey from 2002-2006.
There is no word as of yet on how a second pregnancy would affect Simpson’s $4 million endorsement deal with Weight Watchers. Simpson famously signed with the weight loss company to shed the pounds from her first pregnancy.
An US Weekly source claims Weight Watchers isn’t too pleased. The source adds, “She was already on thin ice with them since she didn’t lose enough for a the first ad, when they had to shoot from the waist up.” The second ad is set to feature Simpson’s full 70 pound weight loss, but may be scrapped if the star is indeed pregnant for a second time.
Simpson has yet to officially comment on the pregnancy rumors, although over Thanksgiving she did issue this cryptic tweet: “Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know everything happens for a reason.”
For now, it seems she will continue to shield her baby bump as the speculation continues.
