Today's Evil Beet Gossip

From Us:

Christmas is still nearly four weeks away, but Jessica Simpson got her biggest — and totally unexpected! — present early: Another baby on the way! Seven months after giving birth to daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson, the star is once again expecting, the new issue of Us Weekly exclusively confirms.

“It definitely wasn’t planned. But yes, Jessica is pregnant again,” a source reveals to Us. The surprise baby-to-be is the second for the singer and Fashion Star mentor, 32, and fiance Eric Johnson. (A rep for Simpson had no comment.)

Engaged for the past two years, Simpson and former NFL pro Johnson, 33, welcomed Maxwell — a whopping 9 pound, 13 ounce bundle of joy! — on May 1 of this year.

And while Simpson felt energized about her admirable 70-pound slimdown post-baby, her greatest inspiration is being a mom. “Motherhood is a dream,” she told Katie Couric back in September. “It really is absolutely amazing.”

Wishing a Happy Thanksgiving to her 5.7 million Twitter followers Nov. 22, she gushed: “I am so grateful for my new lil family!”

Notes the source of pregnancy number two: “She really is overjoyed!”

Well hell. That was fast. I mean, if it’s true, of course. It’s not Tori Spelling-fast, but it’s still fast nevertheless. Is it really happening? Well, it’ll remain to be seen for at least another few months. You remember how it was last time around, when Jess waited, like, six months to even announce that all of the rumors were true.

Congratulations, new lil family!

  • My mum got pregnant with me immediately after she had my brother. Coincidentally he has strong bones, good eyesight and is tall. Not saying he bogarted all the good vitamins, but yeah. :)
    Probably would have been better for her body’s sake if Jess had waited a little longer.

  • I’m not saying it’s not true, but I’m appauled (sp?lol) at this Us Weekly cover… Jessica Simpson SHARES her good news? REALLY? it’s just an anonymous source!!!

    • Appalled. To be overcome with consternation, fear, or horror.

      Another word for “feeling faint with a bad mental shock”. It is also an overused word and typically hyperbole.

      If this was not your intention, try:

      Horrified: alarm, amaze, astound, awe, consternate, daunt, disconcert, dishearten, dismay, faze, frighten, get to, gross out, insult, intimidate, outrage, petrify, scare, shake, shock, terrify, throw, or unnerve

      Aghast: afraid, agape, agog, alarmed, amazed, anxious, astonished, astounded, awestruck, confounded, dismayed, dumbfounded, frightened, horror-struck, overwhelmed, shocked, startled, stunned, terrified, or thunderstruck


      Bewildered: addled, agape, aghast, agog, astonished, astounded, awe-struck, awed, baffled, befuddled, bowled over, dazed, dazzled, disconcerted, dizzy, dumbfounded, dumbstruck, flabbergasted, flipped out, floored, flustered, giddy, in a dither, lost, misled, muddled, mystified, perplexed, punchy, puzzled, rattled, reeling, shocked, shook up, speechless, staggered, startled, stumped, stunned, stupefied, surprised, taken aback, thrown, thunderstruck, uncertain, or unglued


  • I think she will have to announce it asap because she is on a weight watchers contract, and they certainly wont want people think that she is putting on weight on their diet. I honestly think that it was irresponsible of her to get pregnant on their contract. You are promoting weight loss, you got paid 4 million and now, no one is going to see if this stuff really works because now you are pregnant. I think that is unfair to the company. And before ppl bash me for that’s not fair its a woman’s right to conceive if and when she wants please remember she got 4 million dollars and all weight watchers got was a commercial from the neck up and a girdled appearance on Katie Couric’s show.

    • I’ll go you one better. For all that the media has been trumpeting her 70 lb. weight loss, no one has seen her in anything that wasn’t a tunic top or hiding behind a cow-sized handbag. She looks to me like she lost maybe 40 pounds, so I have a couple of theories: A. She knew she wasn’t going to make it to the target weight and got pregnant or B. Most likely, she’s so stupid that she just got her dumb-ass self knocked up again. Either way, I think we’re going to see a whole new dimension of fat and we won’t have to wait months to see it. We’ll know for sure in 2 weeks, if that long.

  • If Jessica keeps having kids her body will be shot. You cannot gain 50 lbs. like she does while pregnant, and get a great body back. Her Daisy Duke (sexy short wearing days) will be over. If they aren’t already…
