Jessica Simpson has spilled the beans -- for real this time! Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, the pregnant TV personality cracked an unintentionally revealing joke, leaving no doubt that her second baby is a boy. Watch below!
Simpson, whose daughter Maxwell was born last May, was telling Jimmy Kimmel how her second pregnancy has been rougher than the first.
"I never knew that a weiner could actually make me nauseous!" she quipped. Then, with a startled laugh, Simpson added, "Well, I guess I just told the whole world I'm having a boy."
"That was totally unplanned," she added.
Hmm ... do we believe her? Earlier that day, Ellen DeGeneres aired an interview with the Fashion Star mentor, in which she revealed that she'd forgotten to use birth control after the first baby. "Mommy brain" notwithstanding, how forgetful can one person be? (A person, we should add, who has single-handedly built the most successful fashion empire of any celebrity.)
We could be wrong here, but we suspect that Simpson's "accidental" slip on Kimmel was a deliberate (and successful!) attempt to get people talking. After all, she's been pretty savvy about her pregnancy reveals in the past, with a Halloween-themed announcement for Baby No. 1 ("I'm going to be a mummy!") and an adorable twit-pic confirmation of Baby No. 2. When she revealed last year that she was having a girl, Simpson did it in an Elle cover story, which means she patiently sat on that news until press time. In other words: She's smarter than she lets on.
But hey, whether her slip on Kimmel was an accident or an "accident," we're happy for her! And we're very curious whether she actually plans to name her little boy "Ace."
