A representative for Jessica Simpson told TODAY.com that she won't be commenting on a report from Us Weekly which says the star is pregnant with her second child. Simpson gave birth to daughter Maxwell Drew just seven months ago.
The magazine cites an unnamed source in its cover story, saying that the pregnancy came as a surprise to the "Fashion Star" mentor and her fiance of two years, Eric Johnson. "It definitely wasn't planned. But yes, Jessica is pregnant again," the source says, noting that Simpson is "overjoyed."
Since Simpson's reps don't want to speak right now, it might be wise for interested parties to keep a close eye on the star's Twitter account, which is where she confirmed her first pregnancy. Simpson used the account recently to tweet a photo of her fiance and Maxwell, attaching a Thanksgiving message to her followers: "I am so grateful for my new lil family!"
The spotlight has been firmly affixed to Simpson since giving birth to Maxwell -- aside from this latest report, any and all news of her post-baby weight loss has been closely monitored. Simpson hasn't said exactly how much she gained while pregnant or exactly how much she's lost since she delivered her daughter in May, but she did speak out in September admitting that the weight doesn't come off easily. "I didn't realize it didn't all come off with the baby," Simpson told USA Today.
E! News meanwhile reached out to Weight Watchers on the baby No. 2 news. Simpson is a spokesperson for the company. "Any questions related to Jessica's personal life can only be answered by her team," Stephanie Schulman, public relations manager at Weight Watchers, told E!. "We do not disclose financial details about our relationships with any of our ambassadors."
