Well, well, well. So not everyone who's expecting a stork delivery is so intent on keeping it a secret (we speak of absolutely no fashion mogul pop star in particular, of course).
But which of Jessica Simpson's exes is about to enter into parenthood?
Granted, there are a few to choose from—John Mayer, Nick Lachey and Tony Romo, to name a few—and each seem equally capable of adding to their family's gene pools. So which former flame is procreating and proud of it?

It's Tony Romo!
The newlywed Dallas Cowboy, who tied the knot with Chace Crawford's sister, Candice Crawford Romo, just five months ago, announced to a group of high school students, of all people, that he was about to be a papa.
"I actually got one on the way," he told students at Ceder Hill High when asked if he had any kids. "My wife's pregnant."
The disclosure, handily enough, happened to be caught on tape by Texas' local Fox affiliate, who was filming Romo's visit to the school as part of the Red Ribbon drug prevention campaign.
Meanwhile, as coincidence would have it, Romo's ex has been keeping almost radio silence on the state of her much speculated on and ever-growing belly. Though she has steadfastly refused to engage in the endless stream of chatter on whether she is or isn't expecting with fiancé Eric Johnson, a picture's worth a thousand words, and while just weeks ago Simpson was wearing the loosest clothing her considerable money could buy, she seems to have abandoned that sartorial tactic and just this week has been spotted out and about with no attempt to hide her obviously protruding midsection.
In any case, congratulations are in order. For at least one of them.
