3 'Signs' Jessica Simpson Was Hiding Her Pregnancy This Whole Time


Jessica Simpson

Unless you've been in a cryo chamber, you probably heard that Jessica Simpson is expecting her third child. The happy pregnancy announcement is all sorts of feels-worthy but comes after months -- heck, a year -- of speculation the celeb mom of two might have a bun in the oven to join her two kids with hubby Eric Johnson, daughter Maxwell, 6, and son Ace, 5. And as happy and thrilled as we are for the Simpson-Johnson clan, one has to wonder if the writing has been on the wall? (Hmm.)

  • Here's a look back at the times people thought Jessica Simpson was pregnant that, at this point, might've been a "sign" -- or "clue."

  • 1. Jess has made a point not to show pics too many pics of herself -- unless they didn't show her midsection.

    A classic move that never goes out of style.

  • Careful product placement with your adorable daughter: check.

  • 2. Her choice of wardrobe turned heads, and not just for style reasons.

    This post Jess shared in August had a number of her followers wondering why the celeb mom was dressed in such warm fabrics.

    "Over the knee boots and a velvet blazer in August?!?" one person questioned after seeing Jessica's Instagram post.

    "Why so many clothes it’s summer time?" wondered another.

  • 3. People swore they saw a baby bump months ago.

    A number of outlets speculated Jessica Simpson was pregnant months ago after the singer-turned-entrepreneur stepped out rocking what looked to be a baby bump -- among other examples. Her rep had to step in at one point to dismiss hearsay Jess was with child, telling GossipCop.com the rumors weren't true. (We now know they obviously were.)

  • Jessica has been adamant about not expanding her clan.

    "We got an IUD, nothing is going to get into that uterus," the now expectant mom told Ellen in 2017 about not wanting to have a third child. "I have two beautiful children and I'm not having a third. They're too cute! You can't top that."

  • But a beautiful surprise, like a baby on the way, has been known to cause a change of heart.

    "They are SO excited. Maxwell and Ace cannot wait -- and it was a very happy surprise," an insider revealed to People about Jessica's unexpected pregnancy.

  • We're so excited for this family.

    Congrats again!
