Jessica Simpson can't seem to shake off the pregnancy rumors that have been surrounding her lately. The singer/TV personality was forced to deny speculations that she is pregnant in mid-July. Unfortunately, her choice of outfit for a recent outing did little to put down the buzz for good.
On Thursday, August 4, the 31-year-old was snapped in Brentwood, Los Angeles wearing a sequinned gold mini-dress with a deep V-cut that draws more attention to her belly, oversized sunglasses and chunky nude heels. Radar Online reported that she was picked up by fiance Eric Johnson (II) from a photo shoot.
The ex-wife of Nick Lachey first sparked the pregnancy rumors when stepping out in a form fitting bronze colored dress. Photos taken from the outing exposed what looked like to be a baby bump. Quick to dispel the speculations, her publicist told Hollywood Life, "This photo agency is full of malarkey. She is not pregnant."
Still, a longtime friend of Jessica recently told OK! magazine, "Her priority now is to be a wife and mother, so I can easily believe she's pregnant." The so-called pal added, "Jessica's already been the young bride, the starlet and the mogul, so she's ready for motherhood. If a happy 'accident' happened before the wedding, she and Eric would be pretty thrilled."
