Thanks to a slip of the tongue on Wednesday night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Jessica Simpson announced that she and fiancé Eric Johnson are expecting a baby boy.
“It’s a total different pregnancy. I just feel awful ... I've been vomiting,” Simpson said. “The crazy thing is, I never knew a wiener could actually make me nauseous.”
After realizing what she said, the “Fashion Star” mentor clarified, “Well, I guess I just told the world I'm having a boy.”
A stunned Kimmel assured viewers that the reveal was not planned, noting, “I didn’t even know what was happening … I thought maybe you were having a girl with a penis.”
Perhaps in an attempt to take advantage of Simpson’s “pregnancy brain,” the host asked about reports that she’s naming the baby Ace. However, she managed to move past the question without offering a straight answer.
Simpson, who will next appear on the second season premiere of “Fashion Star,” which returns to NBC on Friday, joked that she and Johnson still have plans to wed, but she just keeps getting “knocked up.”
“I can’t believe that I’m pregnant again either,” Simpson said. “It’s like déjà vu.”
