[artist id="1245169"]Jessica Simpson[/artist] had remained mum on the pregnancy rumors for as long as possible, but on Halloween, decked out in a mummy
costume, the singer confirmed the news.
"It's true — I'm going to be a mummy!" the pun-loving singer posted on her website, displaying for the world her baby bump while all wrapped up in mummy bandages. The link was posted in a tweet that read in all-caps: "!!!ANNOUNCEMENT!!!"
The confirmation comes after weeks of speculation about the singer, who had been seen in several paparazzi shots with what appeared to be an ever-expanding baby bump. Simpson's body has always been a matter of media speculation, but this time it seems she's ending all the rumors by confirming the news and getting in the Halloween spirit.
This is the first child for [article id="1652269"]Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson[/article]. The two got engaged last November and have yet to tie the knot, and it seems that their soon-to-be-expanding family could delay wedding plans a bit longer.
"I definitely see myself having a family with him, so that's exciting to think about," she told People.com about having kids with her beau, a former NFL player.
Simpson — who has dated Tony Romo (also expecting his first child with wife Candice) and John Mayer — was previously married to Nick Lachey. The two famously shared their life as a married couple on the MTV show "Newlyweds" before divorcing in 2005. Lachey recently became a newlywed himself earlier this year when he [article id="1667380"]married longtime love Vanessa Minnillo[/article]. When news broke last year of Simpson's engagement, Lachey had only the nicest words for his ex-wife: "I will say the same thing I always say: I wish her the very best."
Simpson and Johnson's baby will be the second grandchild in the Simpson family: Bronx, sister Ashlee and Pete Wentz's baby boy, will have a cousin in the very-near future.
