Jessica Simpson took under 30 minutes today for her Instagram post to turn a little awkward. The 40-year-old actress, singer, author, and clothing designer updated her account on Tuesday with a stunning joint photo of herself and husband Eric Johnson – while the chilled outdoor shot showed off the “Dukes of Hazzard” star’s 100-pound weight loss and shouted out 2014-married Eric’s birthday, the comments section quickly filled up with fans assuming Jessica was pregnant.
Jessica is already a mom of three, having dropped her 100 pounds after third baby Birdie Mae was born last year. Check out the photo below.
Scroll for the photo. It showed Jessica and former NFL player Eric both smiling and posing on a lawn and near trees. Jessica, just about in her husband’s arms as he stood behind her, was showing off her super-slim frame and wearing skintight jeans, a black-and-white hoodie, plus a snazzy and very high-heeled pair of boots. The “Open Book” author, also in a burgundy hat and shades, then took to her caption.
“Oh how I love you!!! When I was in my mommy’s belly God formed me and placed you in my heart.”
Jessica gushingly continued: “It took me 29yrs to discover my soulmate and colliding with your heart was our spiritual destiny. You are the human that all should aspire to be.”
Jessica, also talking about being “excited to see all that you have been working on so beautifully to be introduced into the world this year!” then wished her hubby a happy 41st birthday. The comments section now sees one massively-confused fanbase and Jessica appearing to have made her caption a touch awkward. More after the photo, plus how Jessica looked before losing the weight.
Jessica, followed by 5.5 million, has her followers talking. “I thought this was a pregnancy announcement at first ?,” one fan wrote. “Same,” one replied, with another echoing the thought and stating; “Same.”
Jessica had actually been shouting out her husband’s new Legendary Disciples Instagram account, but the fans seemed thrown.
“Thought this was gonna be a pregnancy announcement lol, after you lost all that weight too,” one fan exclaimed. Others, meanwhile, were still distracted by Jessica having dropped 100 pounds in just six months.
Jessica is fresh from reavealing that her previously-admitted 240-pound high was actually closer to 300 pounds. The star told Hollywood Life that she was in the “high two hundreds,” also revealing that she’d consumed eggs and cauliflower so much during her weight-loss journey, she can barely stomach them anymore. Jessica now only eats eggs in cakes.
Jessica may have had her fans wondering about a pregnancy, but the star is busy with her mom-of-three status. She’s raising 8-year-old Maxwell, 7-year-old Ace, and 1-year-old Birdie Mae.
