The tell­tale signs were all there. Dur­ing a din­ner date with hus­band Eric John­son at NYC’S Amer­i­can Cut on Sept. 20, “He was drink­ing,” says an eye­wit­ness, but Jessica Simp­son — who has a rep­u­ta­tion for en­joy­ing her al­co­hol — “was not.” Then, back at their ho­tel, a guest no­ticed that Jessica, 36, “was look­ing a lit­tle curvy,” adding that Eric, 37, was “get­ting the door for her” and gen­er­ally dot­ing on the star. But the big­gest sign of all came when she flew home to LA on Sept. 23. Ac­cord­ing to an eye­wit­ness at LAX, Jessica, who was wear­ing a fig­ure­hug­ging green dress, “looked like she had a baby bump and is preg­nant.” Peo­ple close to Jessica are buzzing about baby No. 3. “When she and Eric re­turned home, a num­ber of Jessica’s friends no­ticed how bumpy and thick around the mid­dle she looked,” a pal re­veals to In Touch. “And she re­ally has that glow. She and Eric have been ac­tively try­ing to have a baby since July, so ev­ery­one is con­vinced she’s preg­nant!” Un­til re­cently, Jessica thought her fam­ily was com­plete. In 2014, the mother of Maxwell, 4, and Ace, 3, fa­mously de­clared, “Oh, we are done. We’ve got the girl and we’ve got the boy.” Af­ter los­ing her baby weight — and then some — af­ter Ace, “Jessica re­ally got into ex­er­cise, eating right and work­ing on hav­ing the per­fect body. Be­ing a mom to two ram­bunc­tious chil­dren, a de­voted wife to Eric, stay­ing in shape and run­ning a fash­ion em­pire was the per­fect life for her.” Un­til it wasn’t. “As the kids got older,” adds the pal, “Jessica started to yearn for another child. Her doc­tor ad­vised her that she should do it sooner rather than later.”

She even­tu­ally con­vinced Eric that they should go for it. “She’s been on the baby kick for about a year, and right around her 36th birth­day in July, she man­aged to get Eric on board,” says the friend, adding that Jessica also cut back on her car­dio work­outs and loos­ened up on her diet re­stric­tions. “Since then, it’s been all sys­tems go. Jessica and Eric have been hav­ing the time of their lives try­ing to con­ceive. It’s just a mat­ter of time be­fore they an­nounce that they’re hav­ing baby No. 3. And they couldn’t be hap­pier.” ◼
