BumpWatch: Jessica Simpson’s Lunch Break

12/29/2011 at 11:00 AM ET

Table for two, please!

A beaming Jessica Simpson takes fiancé Eric Johnson — and her baby bump! — to lunch Tuesday in Brentwood, Calif.

The reality that the couple will welcome their first child this spring — she thinks it’s a girl while he has his bets on a boy — recently hit the singer/designer full force.

“I felt [the baby] move the other day for the first time and I had big crocodile tears,” Simpson, 31, told Rachael Ray.

“It was the coolest thing ever. It did a flip or something. I was like, ‘There it went. It’s there, it’s really there.”

Very happy for Jessica, however she looks to me like she’s due in Jan or Feb, not the Spring. What do you all think??

That is pretty cool to see a nice actress settling down a bit! Motherhood is going to be good for her!

Chris on

Hope things work out well for her!

Janna on

That’s what I thought, too, ourdalyplate. I can’t believe she still has at least three months to go!

Who is that homeless guy with her? Oh wait, that’s her fiance.

Julianna on

Its not only her showing a lot but also she is carrying high, very high for having months to go yet. In Oct when she announced she looked at least 5 mos, so I also am a bit confused. She has to be at least far enough along to know the sex of the baby!

Julianna on

PS – Jessica, if you really wanna show your belly, don’t wear black!

Ali on

I’m guessing a boy for them!

Marky on

Julianna, surely you know that some couples choose not to learn the sex of their baby before it is born? It is fun for them to guess, and have the news be a surprise at the time of birth.

She looks awesome!!

When I was pregnant with my almost 3 week old daughter I got really big really fast once I hit the second trimester and then really did not get much bigger for the rest of my pregnancy. I had people assuming I was either carrying twins or due way earlier than I was, by the time my daughter was born I was pretty average in size.

It looks to me like the same thing is happening to Jessica, I would not be surprised at all if she stays pretty close to this size for the rest of her pregnancy.

Julianna- Jessica and Eric mentioned a few weeks ago that they were going to be finding out the sex in a few days, so either they do know and just haven’t told anyone, or the baby is refusing to cooperate!

As for Jessica’s bump size, she is a very petite girl, so it’s not surprising that she’s carrying big. That baby has nowhere to go but out!🙂

Anyone know what her fiance is like…he just looks like a tool in every picture I see of them. Did he even play long in the nfl?

Maria on

I think she is lying about her due date to keep it private- which I understand- who wants swarms of press around when you are in labor!! Because she looks like 8 month pregnant! Either that or she is carrying twins. Or maybe she just carries big.

Karen, how would we “know” what her fiance is like lol? I can’t speak for the rest of the posters but personally I take most of what I read on these tabloid sites for what it is – entertainment, not news. Please don’t be like the folks who worship at the altar of Jennifer Garner because they “know” she’s the best wife and mother in the world.

Why do you think Eric looks like a tool? I think he’s kinda cute.

I don’t know why people are saying she must by lying about her due date. All she’s said is she’s due in the spring…which means she could her due date could be anywhere from mid-March to mid-June.

Jillian on

People think she is lying….because she looks bigger thanseeing due in spring and it’s not abnormal to do. I would not be surprised if she was due end of Jan/ feb.


Yuri on

I’m happy for her but it really makes me twitch that she used the term “crocodile tears,” which means faking the crying. I know she meant she just had really big tears, but still…

Terri on

I think she is due in March. She said that they would find out the sex before the birth, but I doubt that they are going to announce it.
