The much-buzzed-about pregnancy news has hit the Web in the wake of the Weight Watchers spokeswoman's spectacular weight loss, and Simpson even debuted her slimmed-down figure less than two weeks ago.
Whether true or false, there's no doubt we're obsessed with baby Maxwell and would love to see a sibling for Jess and fiancé Eric Johnson's bundle of joy.
