Jessica Simpson Confirms Another Baby’s on the Way

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images for Jessica Simpson Collection(NEW YORK) -- It’s official: Jessica Simpson has another baby on the way.

Today, the 32-year-old pop star tweeted a photo of daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson sitting in front of a sand-drawn sign saying, “Big Sis.” It’s pretty much in line with the way Simpson announced her first pregnancy, dressing up as a mummy on Halloween 2011 and tweeting, “!!!ANNOUNCEMENT!!!”

Rumors that Simpson was pregnant with a second child sparked in November. She’s remained mum about that while touting her increasingly slim figure as the spokesperson for Weight Watchers, a gig she scored after giving birth to Maxwell in May and admitting that she weighed 170 pounds at the height of her pregnancy.

Simpson’s latest Weight Watchers commercial debuted on TV today. ”I didn’t need to be perfect to get here, to lose over 50 pounds on Weight Watchers,” Simpson says in the ad, clad in cowboy boots and driving a pickup truck. “I love food, I love life, and I had no idea I could be so in control and so free at the same time.”

It remains to be seen if Simpson will continue as Weight Watchers’ spokesperson with another baby on the way. A rep for the weight loss program didn’t immediately respond to ABCNews.com’s request for comment.

Report: "People" Paying $800K for Jessica Simpson's Baby Pics

ABC/RANDY HOLMES(LOS ANGELES) -- Jessica Simpson's little bundle of joy is about to make her a bundle.

The magazine Women's Wear Daily reports People magazine is forking over "about 800 thousand dollars" to publish exclusive pictures of Maxwell Drew Johnson, Simpson's 2-week-old daughter with fiancee Eric Johnson.

While this pales in comparison to the $6 million People ponied up for shots of Jennifer Lopez' twins with then-hubby Marc Anthony back in 2008, baby Maxwell is helping mom's bottom line out in another way. 

Simpson reportedly inked a $4 million deal with Weight Watchers to lose all the baby weight she gained during her pregnancy. She sold that exclusive cover story to Us Weekly.

What Kind of Mom Will Jessica Simpson Be?

Alo Ceballos/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Now that Jessica Simpson finally has her baby, what kind of mom will she be?

The singer and reality TV personality wasn't shy about revealing the details of her pregnancy leading up to Tuesday's birth of her first child, daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson. Expect more tweeting and talking now that she's a mom.

"I think she's so excited to finally be a mom, it's something she's been looking forward to for a really long time, and she wants to share it with all her fans," said People magazine reporter Lesley Messer. "She was very vocal about her cravings during her pregnancy, she was tweeting photos of the cereal she was eating, so I don't think it would be surprising if she shared a funny story or two about being a new mom."

Simpson embraced the celebrity trend of giving your kid an unconventional name (see: Beyonce's Blue Ivy, Alicia Silverstone's Bear Blu). The names Maxwell and Drew are reported to have family significance to Simpson and her fiance, Eric Johnson. Even though little Maxwell may have a hard time finding a license plate keychain with her name on it, Carolyn Castiglia, comedian and blogger for the parenting website Babble, thinks she'll be just fine.

"At least weird names are hard to make fun of," she said. "Take Apple and Moses Paltrow. What are the kids at school gonna say? 'You're a piece of fruit!' 'You're a historical figure who led his people out of bondage!'"

Simpson, 31, and Johnson, 32, announced the arrival of their daughter on Simpson's website Tuesday, saying the baby weighed in at 9 lbs., 13 ounces.
