The week has been flush with outlets claiming to know precisely what is going on inside Jessica Simpson's uterus. But with no confirmation from Simpson or her publicists, and only suspiciously baggy clothing and teetotalling to go on, we're not going to pretend to know for sure whether Simpson's with child. Instead, we've rounded up the main talking points.
It's a girl! In swift fashion, we've moved on from "is she pregnant?" to knowing the sex of the unconfirmed baby. A friend of Simpson's reportedly told Life & Style that Simpson is telling people that having a girl is "like winning the lottery twice," and "girlie baby clothes" and nursery decor are already in the works.
Feasibility: Without any real confirmation from Simpson herself, WHO KNOWS. As an aside, I remember when "friends" of Jennifer Lopez said the same thing -- a full two years before becoming pregnant with her twins.
Wedding before baby: Also from L&S, the wedding is still on! Mark Nov. 11 on your calendars. Simpson and her fiance Eric Johnson are said to have plans to tie the knot in Hawaii.
Feasibility: Wedding details are typically easier than baby bumps to keep under wraps. Could happen. At least we know this: Simpson and Johnson are engaged, so they've got one part down.
A deal to cash in on: Simpson, according to Page Six, wants a paycheck in exchange for confirming news of her pregnancy. "We're told the Simpsons were asking up to $500,000 to close the deal," the paper writes.
Feasibility: This wouldn't be the first time the Simpson camp employed a pay-to-play strategy. This isn't out of the realm of possibility. If she is, in fact, pregnant.
**note: We approached reps for Simpson for comment on each of these claims. They did not respond.
