The Word: Jessica Simpson is still pregnant

Jessica Simpson in early March of this year.

It’s a slow gossip day, so let’s check in with everyone’s favorite subject: The uteri of the stars!
First up: Jessica Simpson, who, it should be noted, is still pregnant. (At this point, does anyone else feel like Simpson is going to be in the Guinness Book of World Records for “Mammal with the Longest Gestation Period,” right next to: “Elephant”?) “I just woke up from a dream that I wore a leopard caftan in the hospital. Fabulous!!” Simpson tweeted yesterday. “Now I need to find one!”

Even the “Fashion Star” mentor knows that this is a seemingly never-ending pregnancy: “To everyone who keeps congratulating me on the birth of my baby girl…I’m still pregnant!!” Simpson tweeted Saturday. “Don’t believe what you read ladies and gents.”

Meanwhile, Life & Style is reporting that Drew Barrymore, who has yet to confirm her pregnancy, is, like Simpson, having a girl. A source close to Drew “exclusively revealed” to the mag the sex of the child. “She’s so excited,” the source adds.

I’d take this news with a grain of salt, folks, as no “close” friend would sell out such sacred information to a tabloid. That being said, there’s a 50-50 chance that this made-up information is correct. Good job of hedging your bets, Life & Style!

And, just in case you missed it: Giuliana and Bill Rancic, whose struggles with infertility are well documented, announced Monday on “Today” that they are going to have a baby via a gestational carrier. “She is giving us the greatest gift we’re ever getting in our lives,” Giuliana, 37, tells People of the woman whose identity has not been revealed. “She’s so selflessly helping make our dream a reality. We adore her.”

Let’s hope this gestational carrier isn’t on the Jessica Simpson timeline of giving birth.
