And an expert has now predicted that the singer, TV reality star and fashion designer is around six months pregnant.
Simpson, 31, has yet to say she is pregnant as she reportedly tried to secure $500,000 for a magazine deal to make the annoucement.
Boston-based gynaecologist, Dr Dave David, told Radar Online that Simpson is heading into her third trimester, with her and fiance Eric Johnson expecting their first child early next year.
“She looks to be 26 weeks, which is around six months,” he told Radar Online.
‘It is definitely a pregnancy and not weight gain. You can by the shape of her abdomen, her belly wouldn’t be that rounded if it was just fat.
“She is short so the bump looks bigger because it has no where to go but out.”
Sources told the New York Post that Simpson’s manager father Joe is asking for $500,000 for his daughter to confirm she is pregnant with her fiance, former NFL star Eric Johnson.
A PR expert told Radar Online that Simpson does not have the “star power” to secure such a figure.
Nicole Richie sold the first photographs of her baby Harlow for a reported $1m while Christina Aguilera demanded double that for snaps of her baby Max on the cover of People magazine.
Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter Shiloh earned her mummy and daddy in the region of $4m – although they did give the proceeds to charity.
Simpson was set to wed Johnson in November, but the couple have postponed the wedding with sources claiming the delay is due to Simpson being pregnant.
The couple, who have been together for two years, became engaged in November 2010.
