Err, we guess a Christmas party is a pretty good spot to announce to your nearest and dearest that you’re having a baby. But to be honest we’re a little surprised at the reports that Jessica Simpson did just that at Daddy Joe’s holiday shindig on December 11th, mostly because we weren’t sure that they were all back on speaking terms after all that divorce drama. But we guess things are all good between everybody, and according to Celebuzz, Jessica took the occasion to confirm that she’s indeed expecting for a second time!
“As Jessica and her husband were about to leave the party somebody asked her, ‘How’s the baby?’an guest at the Santa Monica party told the website. “And she boasted, ‘Which one?! I’m pregnant again!’ She was so happy, smiling and giggling.” Rumors of the pregnancy with fiance Eric Johnson leaked a few weeks back much to the dismay of the folks over at Weight Watchers,who are apparently furious at the prospect of losing their celebrity slim-down spokesperson.
Trend alert! If you’re a famous person, chances are your mom and/or dad’s brother will at some point gab about your personal life to the media. Take Kate Middleton‘s uncle Gary Goldsmith for example, who shared his vital opinion about the Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy. “We are delighted for them both, it’s great news,” the British businessman gushed to Celebuzz today. “And funnily enough, I had a feeling she might be a few days ago and said as much, but it was just a hunch of mind.” Of course, Unkey Gary is only the affable gossipy tip of the iceberg. Remember Amanda Bynes‘ uncle Ronald Bynes, who spilled to the press during the actress’s public meltdown that, “The problem is there’s no correspondence [between Amanda and her parents]. I don’t even think they know what’s going on with her”? Or Peter Jessop, uncle to alleged Lindsay Lohan attacker Christian LaBella, who went on record with the New York Daily News to say, “He’s a decent kid who met her at a nightclub and she invited him back to her hotel room with other people. And now she’s using her celebrity to launch a full-scale witch hunt against him just to be relevant again.” We don’t see very many aunts, grandpas or nephews chatting with the press, is all we’re saying.
So what is it about uncles that make them so willing to add their two cents? According to Celebuzz, some people have criticized Gary Goldsmith for attempting to use his relation to Middleton to hype his business ventures. For example, earlier this month he tweeted a photo of a man in a Kate mask, which definitely seems like something an uncle would do. Maybe it’s just that much easier to get an uncle’s phone number or email address for a quote then, say, a parent or a cousin? At least none of Kate’s uncles weighed in on her
Get ready for little baby Adele! Today the British singer announced via her blog that she and Simon were expecting their first child. In the post titled “I’ve Got News” she writes, “Im delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx.” Read more…
Ok, for real this time. Whisperings of Jessica Simpson’s pregnancy have been circulating for months, especially lately as the singer has been seen out and about wearing very loose fitting tops over her teeny short-shorts. But now inTouch Weekly is reporting that the singer is indeed pregnant with fiance Eric Johnson’s baby! The couple recently attended Eric’s 32nd birthday party, where Jessica reportedly refused her glass of champaign for the birthday toast. An insider says that Jessica has an extra special bday gift for her soon-to-be-hubby: a first born!
Despite this, the two still plan to wed this November. “Jessica might have to take out her dress a bit,” the source admitted to in Touch. They went on to claim that the bundle is due in spring. “She’s already having kooky cravings!” Her chow of choice? Nacho chips dipped in chocolate. They apparently satisfy her urge for salty and sweet. Hmmm, we’ve never thought of that, but we’d try it. Someone should open up a restaurant with a menu of pregnant woman flavor combos. Write this down people, this is gold. Oh, and congrats to the (reportedly) new parents to-be!
