Jessica Simpson has confirmed she’s pregnant for the second time with a sweet tweet on Christmas morning.
Jessica Simpson, 32, who is engaged to Eric Johnson, posted a picture of her 7-month-old daughter Maxwell sitting in garden with the words “BIG SIS” scrawled in the sand.
She wrote alongside the snap: “Merry Christmas from my family to yours!”
Jessica Simpson confirmed her first pregnancy with a similarly playful post – she dressed as an ancient mummy for Halloween in October 2011 and wrote: “It’s true, I’m going to be a mummy!”
The announcement ends weeks of pregnancy rumors surrounding the star, who had just lost 50 lbs with Weight Watchers as part of a $4 million deal.
Her Expect Amazing commercial, which is officially released on TV today, showed her flaunting her lean post baby body on the back of a pick-up truck.
Weight Watchers congratulated Jessica Simpson on her baby news via a tweet which read: “Congrats to @JessicaSimpson, Eric and big-sister-to-be Maxwell! Your WW family is so thrilled for you. What an amazing year you’ve had!”
Jessica Simpson was last pictured attending her best friend Cacee Cobb’s wedding to Scrubs star beau Donald Faison in Los Angeles on December 15.
She wore a black bridesmaid dress and had a bouquet on hand to strategically cover her bump.
Although the pregnancy wasn’t planned, Jessica Simpson and retired NFL player Eric Johnson, 33, are overjoyed to be having another baby.
A source previously said: “Jessica wasn’t planning the pregnancy but she’s beyond happy about it. She adores being a mother and she’s always wanted to have a big family so she feels totally blessed to have another baby on the way.”
Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson are said to be hunting for a bigger home to accommodate their growing family and have reportedly made an offer on Ozzy Osbourne’s former home.
Ozzy Osbourne’s $13.5 million Hidden Hills home in California boasts six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a recording studio and a pool.
Jessica Simpson hopes to move before her new baby is born.
Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon bought the property – which is situated in a gated community – for $12.4 million five years ago.
It also has floor-to-ceiling windows, and has examples of the couple’s eccentric style such as a black spiral staircase.
