Jessica Simpson is getting married around Independence Day.
The 33-year-old singer-and-actress and footballer fiance Eric Johnson - who have children Maxwell, two, and Ace, 10 months, together - will tie the knot over the July 4 weekend in Santa Barbara, California.
And the blonde beauty - who was previously married to Nick Lachey for three years until 2005 - is not planning to walk down the aisle in a traditional white gown. "Jessica is having something unique made. It will be very different from the Vera Wang she wore to wed Nick Lachey," a source said.
Jessica - who got engaged to Eric, 34, in November 2010 after five months of dating - recently admitted her plans have been progressing and she is "very close" to issuing invitations for her nuptials: "We are very close to sending out our invites. I've been very picky on how I want everything to look and feel. Eric's family alone is almost 90 people, so it'll definitely be a big event."
Jessica Simpson is being sued by a man, who claims she made it appear that his baby was her own.
Christopher Hurst has accused the Fashion Star mentor, who is set to give birth to her second child next month with her fiance Eric Johnson, of conspiring with OK! magazine to make money by posing for a photo with his son, which later appeared on the front cover of the publication.
According to court documents, obtained by The Times-Picayune in New Orleans, Christopher took his teenager daughter and baby boy to meet Jessica, 32, at a department store in October 2011, when the singer was pregnant with her daughter, Maxwell. The lawsuit claims that a stranger suggested that he let Jessica hold his son and Chris claims a photographer then came out of nowhere and started snapping pictures of the blonde beauty holding the infant. He says he was stunned when the images appeared on the front cover of OK! with headlines that made it appear his son was Jessica's child.
Jessica Simpson wants to get married after her baby is born. The singer - who has had to cancel her wedding plans twice due to surprise baby news - hopes to walk up the aisle with her fiance Eric Johnson as soon as possible after the couple's second child arrives.
"[Jessica] was telling friends she wanted to get married a few months after the baby is born," a source said. The insider claims Jessica was joking during her baby shower on April 14, "Let's have this wedding already before I get pregnant with another one!'"
The 32-year-old blonde already has 12-month-old daughter Maxwell with Eric, and the pair were surprised to discover she was expecting another child - a boy, due to arrive in July - so soon after.
Jessica - who got engaged in 2010 - is very body conscious, especially due to her new role as the face of Weight Watchers, so has employed a personal chef to ensure her diet is as healthy as possible during her second pregnancy. "The chef is there all day. Jessica eats things like egg whites and sausage. It's healthier," a second source said.
Jessica Simpson's parents are officially divorced.
Tina Simpson - who also has daughter Ashlee Simpson with her former husband Joe - filed for divorce in September 2012 after 35 years of marriage and the union has now been dissolved, according to TMZ. While details of the settlement have not been made public, it was recently claimed Tina, 53, was so sick of fighting with Joe that she was willing to willing to give into his demands for an equal split of everything under the family name, including the multi-million dollar clothing line she manages for Jessica.
"An offer of a 50 percent split of everything under the Simpson name has been offered to Joe. That includes the coveted Jessica Simpson Collection, which Joe desperately wanted because that's the real cash cow. Even though he has nothing to do with the fashion label, Tina just wants an end to the saga and if that means giving Joe what he wants, so be it," a source said.
Jessica Simpson has accidentally confirmed she is having a baby boy.
The 32-year-old beauty - who has a 10-month-old daughter Maxwell and is pregnant with her second child with fiance Eric Johnson - wanted to keep the sex of her little one a secret but while talking about how she was been suffering "awful" morning sickness, she accidentally let the information slip.
Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday, she said, "It's a total different pregnancy. I just feel awful. I've been vomiting. I had no idea that a wiener can make me nauseous. Oh shucks! Well I guess told the world that I was having a boy. I just outed that I am having a boy. I can't believe I did that. It was not planned. It was kind of out and about in the press that I was having a boy. I was like 'How do people know these things'?"
The Fashion Star mentor also revealed she has planned her wedding to the retired NFL star a number of times but has to keep postponing the big day because she is always getting pregnant:
Jessica Simpson reportedly plans to call her baby Ace. The Fashion Star mentor and her fiance Eric Johnson - who are already parents to nine-month-old daughter Maxwell Drew - are said to have told friends what they are going to call their impending new arrival, but haven't explained the inspiration behind the name.
"She's told people she's going to name the baby Ace!" a source said.
While the 32-year-old blonde is pregnant with her second child, she is still very focused on Maxwell and is astonished at some of the things she has mastered at such a young age. "Maxwell can whistle on cue at 9 months! Heck I'm still learning! This lil human impresses me everyday. (sic)" she wrote on Twitter.
Though Jessica and Eric, 33, haven't confirmed the reports of the baby's name, insiders correctly predicted their daughter's moniker some time before she was born.
Jessica Simpson's parents are reportedly fighting over financial rewards from their divorce.
The singer-and-actress's mother Tina and father Joe separated last September after 35 years of marriage, and the showbiz patriarch is said to be keen to move their case from Texas to Los Angeles as he believes the no-fault state will look upon his indiscretions - such as being found guilty of driving under the influence (DUI) - more favorably and give him a better financial outcome.
Although Tina has already offered Joe $100 million of her $300 million fortune, her estranged husband - who manages both Jessica and his other daughter Ashlee Simpson - still wants more, including a bigger share of the profits gained from Jessica's clothing line The Jessica Simpson Collection.
Jessica Simpson has been "obsessed" with her weight her entire life.
The Fashion Star mentor - who lost 60 pounds on the diet program following the birth of her first daughter Maxwell seven months ago, before announcing she is pregnant with her second child - admits she was a yo-yo dieter all of her life.
In a newly released Weight Watchers 360 advertisement in which she teams up with the company's other spokesperson Jennifer Hudson, that will hit screens on Thursday, the 32-year-old star says, "I obsessed about my weight my whole life... I was always on some new life-stopping diet." The former size 0 star then claims Weight Watchers, "let's me be me," and says "I amazed myself."
Meanwhile, Dreamgirls star Jennifer admits that the program completely changed her life as well and helped her lose 80 pounds over the past two years. "I was overweight my whole life. I figured I was just born that way," the 31 year-old singer says.
Jessica Simpson is pregnant again.
The Fashion Star mentor and fiance Eric Johnson are set to have their second baby together just seven months after Jessica gave birth to their daughter, Maxwell Drew Johnson, on May 1.
"It definitely wasn't planned. But yes, Jessica is pregnant again," a source said.
Jessica, 32, has previously said of her daughter: "Motherhood is a dream, it really is absolutely amazing." The former singer has been engaged to NFL player Eric, 33, for two years, and it was rumored they had been planning to tie the knot in Italy next year.
Shortly after giving birth, Jessica was named the face of slimming brand Weight Watchers, and had been working hard with trainer Hayley Pasternak to lose some of the 60lbs she gained during her first pregnancy.
Jessica Simpson wants fans to feel like they can give her a hug when they see her. The singer-and-actress says it's important not to dress to over-the-top as she doesn't want people to think she's not approachable.
"I would say that I'm pretty casual. I don't ever wanna come across too intimidating, so as long as I look like you can come up and give me a hug, that's good. My signature look has always been really classic and comfortable jeans and T-shirt," the mother-of-one said of her look, speaking as the Guest Editor for women's website iVillage.
The blonde beauty also revealed her mother, Tina, is her style icon as she's just so creative with what she wears: "My style icon really for my whole life has been my mother. The way she can put together and outfit and just color and even print mixing. I mean she's just so creative and has always looked flawless to me. That's why she runs (my clothing range) the Jessica Simpson collection. I trust her with every single garment."
