Jessica Simpson announces she really is pregnant




We can all finally stop wondering if Jessica Simpson is pregnant, because she's officially announced it's true. She did it on Twitter, too, because when you run a billion-dollar fashion empire, where else would you tell people such a thing?

"Merry Christmas from my family to yours" Jess tweeted on Christmas, complete with a photo of daughter Maxwell Drew sitting on a patch of sand on which "BIG SIS" had been written. This no doubt is how Simpson revealed the news to Weight Watchers. The company noted that while Simpson had lost 60 pounds using their methods, she will be suspending her participation in their program because, well, baby. But she'll still do ads for them.

"There have been no changes to our business agreement with Jessica," a rep told "Jessica's successful weight loss prior to becoming pregnant will be featured in Weight Watchers' new 'Expect Amazing' advertising campaign, including a spot with her sharing the happy news." Watch that video, which came out Wednesday, below.

Jess and fiance Eric Johnson only had Max about seven months ago, and with no other details, it's hard to say how far along Simpson is. Nevertheless, it's no doubt going to be a spell until those two actually, you know, get married.
