Jessica Simpson is still NOT pregnant with baby number three, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

“Jessica’s Got A Bump!” blares the headline in this week’s In Touch, which alleges “the telltale signs were all there” to confirm Simpson’s third pregnancy. A so-called “source” tells the outlet both Simpson and Eric Johnson were spotted together at a New York City restaurant in late September, but only her husband was drinking alcohol. The magazine’s supposed source further claims “the biggest sign of all” was when she flew back to Los Angeles and was seen wearing a “figure-hugging” dress that purportedly accentuated a baby bump.

What’s more, the publication’s ill-informed or possibly made-up insider contends those close to Simpson are “buzzing” about baby number three, with a number of friends supposedly commenting on how “bumpy and thick” she looked around the middle. “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,” adds the “source.”

Gossip Cop busted the equally unreliable OK! magazine only two weeks ago for publishing the same claim about Simpson, and we again checked in with a source close to Simpson and were assured the rumor is”not true.” Sadly, we’re not surprised the publication seemingly fabricated this. Among the many articles Gossip Cop has debunked from In Touch was one from two years ago that wrongly alleged Simpson was choosing drinking over her family. Much like that provably false story, the latest one about Simpson being pregnant with her third child is equally untrue.
