Then, just last night, paparazzi caught Jessica leaving Los Angeles Airport sporting a bump so big, some news outlets are claiming Jess is approaching her third trimester! In the revealing photos, Jessica is flanked by her mother Tina, who tries to shield Jess from the swarms of photographers that greeted them after their flight from New Orleans. Jessica also tries in vain to cover her mid-section with her oversized animal print bag, but with little success.
Rumors of a pregnancy have grown louder and louder throughout the past months, reaching a fever pitch after it was reported that Jess had postponed her upcoming November wedding due to the unexpected bun in the oven. Jessica even joked she might elope to avoid all the pressure that wedding planning brings.
Whether or not the star is currently pregnant, if Jessica has her way, she'll be a mother sooner than later. "I absolutely want kids," Jess told talk shot host Rachael Ray before meeting her fiance. "I can't wait to have kids, hopefully, some day."
