The Essential Photo Guide of Jessica Simpson's Baby Bump


The Bump!



Jessica Simpson? She is really, really pregnant. The pop star is weeks if not days away from celebrating the birth of her and fiancé Eric Johnson’s first child a baby girl. On Sunday she reached another milestone in her pregnancy the baby shower (you can see what she got right here).

And Jessica’s pregnancy has been an interesting one, from a PR standpoint.  Rumors started early, denials were plenty, and the not so “secret” of her being pregnant was a secret to no one, and finally she had to announce her baby news (and she did so in a very unique way).

Here is the essential guide to Jessica Simpson’s pregnancy from then to now!
