Last month, rumors percolated that Jessica Simpson and fiance Eric Johnson may be calling off their engagement. Now the latest gossip surrounding the duo is that the singer-turned-fashionista is reportedly about to announce her pregnancy!
The 30-year-old star has been seen wearing baggy, tummy-disguising clothes lately -- but some recent photos seem to depict a noticeable baby bump (like the shot above, taken on Oct. 13). And RadarOnline reports that Simpson is almost ready to let her fans know that she and her man are expecting a baby.
"It’s still early in the pregnancy, and Jessica has decided to wait before sharing her happiness with her fans," a source close to Johnson revealed. "But she has begun telling family and friends the exciting news."
But if the rumors are true, it's certainly news to the grandfather-to-be! The former NFL player's father, Stephen Johnson, seemed skeptical when contacted about the pregnancy.
"I haven’t heard anything," Stephen said. "Is she pregnant? I better give them a call if she is!"
Simpson's rep have not yet commented on the rumors. But according to RadarOnline's source, Simpson is expected to make the baby announcement in a magazine exclusive.
The engaged couple has yet to set a wedding date, leading to further speculation about Simpson and Johnson's relationship (meanwhile, her ex-husband Nick Lachey remarried in July), but the tight end's father is hopeful about the wedding plans.
"I wish it would happen!" Stephen told RadarOnline. "It is just a matter of logistics. They have had so much to do."
