Up until this point, the gender of Simpson's unborn baby, and even the fact of whether or not J-Sims is actually pregnant, has been shrouded in mystery. Back in September, AOL Music reported that the singer was experiencing weird food cravings. Then she was spotted wearing loose-fitting clothing at Los Angeles airport. The latest, rather more cynical reports addressing the rumor, suggest that Simpson and Johnson are waiting for a payout from one of the big celebrity media outlets before revealing the baby news.
This revelation from the couple's friend seems to be the last piece in the baby jigsaw. The pal went on to say that Simpson described the baby's gender news as "like winning the lottery, twice."
On a side note, Jessica and Mike are planning to tie the knot in Hawaii on Nov. 11, so we can expect even more revealing photos of Jess, rocking her growing bump in her wedding gown!
