Jessica Simpson has learned a thing or two from her savvy manager dad, Joe.
The singer and (maybe) mom-to-be is the subject of the weekly gossip mag covers this week, with OK announcing “Yes, I’m Having a Baby!” next to a picture of a glowing Jessica, and In Touch “revealing” the alleged baby’s sex.
While both mags relied on sources to talk about Jess’ growing belly, she is reportedly looking to sell the real story and announce her pregnancy—once she gets a big-money offer, per the New York Post.
So how much does she supposedly want?
According to the Post, Jess is asking for a $500,000 paycheck for the big reveal.
Pregnancy rumors began flying over the summer when Jess was snapped wearing baggy outfits that could easily mask a bump.
OK, on stands Friday, has the star focused on having the baby and putting her marriage plans to fiancé Eric Johnson on hold for now, while In Touch reports she is in her second trimester, having a girl and already decorating a gender-appropriate nursery.
“She’s already having kooky cravings,” a source told In Touch last month, adding that the star is eating cheese-flavored popcorn and nacho chips dipped in chocolate, and drinking virgin margaritas.
Come on, Jess, just fess up already!
