There have been rumors lately that singer Jessica Simpson is pregnant, but the celebrity put those rumors to rest yesterday by announcing that she is indeed with child.

Simpson revealed the news on her web site on Halloween, the same day she just happened to dress up all in white bandages as a mummy (mommy?). “It’s true, I’m going to be a mummy!,” Simpson said. The father is former football player Eric Johnson, and both are excited about the child.

The 31-year-old Simpson was rumored to be pregnant simply because she had gained weight in the past several weeks. There was even additional news that she apparently planned to reveal her pregnancy to whoever coughed up $500k. Fortunately, this time, the gossipy rumors turned out to be true.
