Yes, it is true. Singer-actress, Jessica Simpson has confirmed she is pregnant. The 31-year-old fiancee of former New Orleans Saints tight end, Eric Johnson corroborated her pregnancy rumors by posting the news through her Twitter account.

Jessica Simpson remained quiet about her pregnancy for some time, even though pictures revealed her to be expecting. According to reports, the famous country singer is expecting a girl. Speculation is that Simpson find out about the sex of her child during a routine scan.
A source close to Simpson said that the media-icon hated surprise. The source also said, “She's telling people it's like winning the lottery, twice. Jessica really wanted to find out the baby's sex, she hates surprises. She and Eric are both so happy.”
Just recently, Jessica Simpson’s mother Tina revealed that she was eager to extend her family and give her two-year-old grandson, Bronx a cousin. Bronx is the child of daughter Ashlee Simpson and estranged husband Peter Wentz.
Tina said, “Obviously I'm looking forward to having more grandkids. Bronx is the love of my life. I don't mind boys or girls, I'll take anything I get. I'm not picky!”
Eric Johnson and Jessica Simpson connected in May 2010, after Johnson separated from his first wife Keri Johnson in October 2009 after 5 years of marriage. Later in November 2010, Simpson announced that she and Johnson were engaged to be married.
According to a Boston-based gynecologist, Jessica Simpson is heading into her third trimester of pregnancy and would expect her first child next year. Doctor Dave David said, “She looks to be 26 weeks, which is around six months. It is definitely a pregnancy and not weight gain. You can by the shape of her abdomen, her belly wouldn't be that rounded if it was just fat.”
