Report: Simpson pregnant

Jessica Simpson is reportedly pregnant.

Jessica Simpson is reportedly pregnant.

The singer-and-actress and her NFL player fiance Eric Johnson are said to be expecting their first child together and the blonde star is getting ready to announce the happy news after already telling some of her close friends and family.

A source close to Jessica told “It’s still early in the pregnancy, and Jessica has decided to wait before sharing her happiness with her fans. But she has begun telling family and friends the exciting news."

The 31-year-old beauty – who was previously married to singer Nick Lachey - previously sent back her glass of champagne when she celebrated Eric's 32nd birthday, leading to further speculation she has a child on the way.

His father Stephen did not deny the rumours when he was questioned about whether she is expecting.

He said: "I haven’t heard anything. Is she pregnant? I better give them a call if she is!”

Jessica and Eric are thought to have recently postponed their wedding – which was due to take place in November - because she is unsure of how she wants her big day to play out, but Stephen is keen for the nuptials to take place.

He added: "I wish it would happen! It is just a matter of logistics. They have had so much to do."
