Pregnant Jessica Simpson Looks to Cash in on Kid

by at .

As far as we're concerned, Eric Johnson made Jessica Simpson pregnant and that's a fact. She has not denied this report, and all signs point to its accuracy.

She hasn't officially confirmed anything, however, and reportedly will not do so until she secures a magazine deal for at least $500,000, Page Six reports.

Somehow not surprising in the least.

Jessica Simpson Covering Her Baby Bump

With the help of her father/manager/pimp Joe Simpson, Jessica refuses to say she is expecting until she had a deal in place. But will she be able to get one?

This isn't exactly 2003 here. While still a celebrity by any measure, Jess is no longer all the rage these days. Her last movie and album were ... we forget.

Plus, how many gossip mags are going to drop half a mill just to "break" this news ... especially after In Touch already did a month ago? Quite unclear.

The longer she walks around hiding her obvious bump (see Jessica Simpson photos) and saying nothing only diminishes the chances of a big payday too.

You can admit it, Jess. Share the joyous news. Then you can stop walking around in black, baggy clothes looking ridiculous with giant bags in front of you.

Jessica Simpson Quotes

They're just the cutest couple in the world. They are adorable. Anybody would wish to be them and you can only wish them well. Just being around them inspires love and everything I sing about.

Jessica Simpson [on her sister and Pete Wentz]

It’s fun to do a small film that might be released to DVD not because it’s a horrible film, but because it’s an independent film. For people to say Employee of the Month was a flop is ludicrous. We made the money back–that’s not a flop. For people to say The Dukes of Hazzard was a flop–it opened to $30 million! If these movies are flops, why would I still make them?
