Jessica Simpson Is Pregnant! — “It’s true – I’m going to be a mummy!”

Congratulations to the lovely Jessica Simpson and her tall and sexy fiancé Eric Johnson on the recent announcement of their pregnancy! Rumors had been circulating for quite some time regarding whether or not Jessica was pregnant, when the singer and business-woman tweeted on October 31st, “It’s true – I’m going to be a mummy!” Jessica has often spoken of her desire to be a mother, and we could not be happier that her dream is coming true.

As an incredibly successful fashion designer, Jessica’s pregnancy means that she gets to show off her great fashion sense in a whole new arena—maternity clothing! For a recent evening out, she wore a loose-fitting animal print top with sexy jeans shorts and great black heels. The shorts work great, since she paired them with a looser top to balance the proportion. Animal print is very popular this year, and Olian’s ¾ Length Sleeve Animal Print Maternity Dress is a great way to wear it. For a recent shopping day in New York City, Jessica continued the animal print trend with a great structured black and leopard print leather jacket, pairing it with a fitted black tank, black leggings, and knee-high boots. This look is the perfect combination between comfort and style, as the stretchy top and leggings are ultra-comfy and the jacket creates a beautiful and flattering silhouette. Try Bella Band Essential’s Everyday Cami and Japanese Weekend’s Over the Belly Maternity Leggings for an equally comfy look. A great cropped motorcycle jacket adds edge and a flattering shape.

For a more formal event, the launch of her tween clothing line, Jessica wanted to maintain a high level of comfort while look chic and fashionable. She hit her mark, sporting a long-sleeve black tunic, black tights, and dressing it up with fabulous jewelry. Adding statement earrings, a great ring, or a bold necklace to any outfit will instantly dress it up and take it to the next level, while still allowing one to maintain one’s comfort.

We are so happy for the beautiful couple, and are eagerly awaiting the birth of their child!

Hilary Duff Is Pregnant!

Lizzie McGuire is all grown up! The beautiful Hilary Duff and her cute hockey player husband Mike Comrie are expecting their first child together this February. Hillary announced her pregnancy on an October 14th appearance on The Ellen Show, stating, “”I haven’t told anyone yet. I wanted to tell you first. I just found out.” As to the baby’s gender? “It’s a boy! I had a feeling it was a boy the whole time,” she gushed to Ellen. We are so excited for the sweet couple, who also just celebrated their first year of marriage.

Throughout her pregnancy, Hilary has been staying healthy and in shape with lots of work out sessions, and looking cute in the process. On November 2nd, she was spotted leaving the gym in cute ankle length leggings, and a V-neck tee. The tee was cut extra-long to provide plenty of coverage for her growing baby bump. For a similar look, pair Maternal America’s Maternity Leggings with Shade Maternity’s Baby Tee. Comfy and stretchy, one will feel and look great throughout one’s workout. The following day, Hilary sported a similarly comfortable look while rushing through JFK Airport. She highlights her baby bump in a cute long-sleeve white tee, black stovepipes, ankle booties, and a cozy black scarf. By sticking to classic colors and shapes, she looks both chic and comfortable. We love how she layered a striped tank underneath the white tee to provide extra length and coverage!

Hilary transitions easily from day to night, as she showed us this Monday at the Hollywood launch of The Beauty Book for Brain Cancer. She rocked a sequined, citrus-hued mini dress that showed off her curves beautifully. Pairing it with gold jewelry and nude pumps created a perfectly modern look, and her long, soft waves of hair contrasted the tightness of the dress perfectly. Congratulations to the happy couple!
