Oh baby! In Touch Weekly is reporting Jessica Simpson is pregnant with her fiance and former NFL player Eric Johnson. According to a source, Simpson turned away champagne at Johnson’s 32nd birthday party and is having sweet & salty cravings. The couple’s November wedding is still a go, and Simpson has said this is “the best wedding present” they could have asked for.
Simpson dated Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo for two years, and despite her jersey chasing past it’s Johnson who is being criticzed for being in the relationship for money. Johnson played five years with the San Francisco 49ers from 2001-2006 before being released. Although, the Yale grad had a quick stint with the New Orleans Saints in 2007 and was again released…. hopefully this time he is in it for the long haul!
Congratulations to Hilary Duff and her NHL husband Mike Comrie who announced Sunday they are pregnant with their first child. Duff announced the exciting news on her official blog saying on the couple’s one year wedding anniversary, “I can’t believe it has already been a year, time really flies when you’re having fun! We also want to share the exciting news that…… BABY MAKES THREE!!! We are extremely happy and ready to start this new chapter of our lives. Thanks to everyone for the continued love and support throughout the years!”
News came to a suprise to fans of the couple when in May Duff told Access Hollywood that her and Comrie would wait to start of family so she could release another album. But Comrie may just be playing Mr. Mom since he announced he would be taking a break from hockey after having hip surgery.
The 30-year old Canadian last played for the Pittsburgh Penguins but is now an unrestricted free agent. Duff, who is 23, and Comrie met when he played for the New York Rangers.
Congratulations to Victoria and David Beckham who welcomed a baby girl into the world! Their fourth child and first girl, the former Spice Girl and soccer star named the family’s newest addition Harper Rose. Harper is a traditional English name, and the middle name Seven pays tribute to her dad’s soccer number.
Harper weighed 7 lbs., 10 oz. and was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Sunday, July 10. Despite her US citizenship, Posh Spice is also telling friends that she wants her daughter to grow up to be like Kate Middleton, which is not that unlikely considering the couple made the guest list at the April Royal Wedding.
“[The couple's sons] Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz are excited to welcome their new baby sister to the family,” the couple’s spokesperson Jo Milloy told People.com.
It has been quite the year for Texas Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis… in October, Lewis helped lead the Rangers to their first World Series ever and his wife gave birth to ther second daughter this past week. Lewis was on standby for when his wife went into labor and missed his fourth start of the season to be in the delvery room, but according to a Dallas reporter, Lewis abandoned his team!
In his column in the Dallas Observer Jason Whitt wrote, “Imagine if Jason Witten missed a game to attend the birth of a child. It’s just, I dunno, weird. Wrong even. Departures? Totally get it because at a funeral you’re saying goodbye to someone for the last time. But an arrival is merely saying hello to someone you’ll see the rest of your life.”
Under the new MLB paternity leave list players had a 24-72 hour window to leave when expecting a baby. Passed this year, Lewis became the first pitcher to exercise the new rule.
