Jessica Simpson is reportedly expecting a baby boy less than one year after giving birth to a baby girl, it has been claimed.
The 32-year-old, who is engaged to retired NFL player Eric Johnson, 33, is said to be thrilled with the rumored sex of her unborn child after allegedly praying for a boy, according to RadarOnline.com.
"It's Jessica's dream come true, she prayed she was having a boy," a source told Radar. "What with everything going on in her personal life, and her problems with her father, this has given her something to smile about."
Simpson, who is a Weight Watchers weight loss ambassador, confirmed her second pregnancy on Christmas day when her latest TV commercial began airing.
"This year is all about new beginnings for me. I lost over 50 pounds on Weight Watchers and did not have to be perfect to do it," Simpson says in the TV ad. "Being healthy has become a part of who I am -- which is great timing, because I'm having another baby."
The fashion designer, who is rumored to be in talks to star in her very own TV series, gained approximately 70 pounds during her first pregnancy with 8-month-old Maxwell Drew Johnson, although she eventually shed the weight through her Weight Watchers program.
"[Jessica] found out this week after a check-up at the doctor, who asked her if she wanted to know the sex of the baby ... she immediately said yes and when the doctor told her it was a boy she screamed with joy!" the source said.
"She was so happy that Maxwell is getting a little brother because that's something she always wanted when she was growing up," the source continued, adding, "Jessica and Eric are so excited and have started going through names, but they haven't settled on one just yet. It's just a pity their favorite boys name went to their daughter first!"
