For weeks now, Jessica Simpson has stayed mum about the persistent rumors she was pregnant with her second child.
But on Christmas Day, she revealed her big news in the sweetest of ways.
The 32-year-old, who is engaged to Eric Johnson, posted a picture of her seven-month-old daughter Maxwell sitting in garden with the words “BIG SIS” scrawled in the sand.
“Merry Christmas from my family to yours!” the accompanying caption read.
[Jessica confirmed her first pregnancy on Twitter also, tweeting on Halloween in October 2011: "It's true, I'm going to be a mummy!"]Contrary to reports that Weight Watchers were furious that the star was pregnant again after she justlost over 50 pounds, the company said they were “thrilled” by Jessica’s news.
“Congrats to @JessicaSimpson, Eric and big-sister-to-be Maxwell! Your WW family is so thrilled for you,” they tweeted out.
And the company has insisted that no changes have been made in their $4 million business deal.
“There have been no changes to our business agreement with Jessica,” a representative for Weight Watchers told ABCNews.com. “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.”
That video dropped just a few hours ago and is featured below. It was shot at the same time as her “Expect Amazing” commercial.
The Weight Watchers rep added that Jessica “will not be following the program during the pregnancy while her weight and well-being are monitored by her obstetrician, as is recommended for any woman during pregnancy. After she gives birth, Jessica and her doctor will decide when she may resume following the Weight Watchers program.”
The ads are scheduled to air through winter.
