On Christmas Eve, during a family holiday in Oahu, Hawaii, the pregnant star hit the beach in her seemingly-favorite article of clothing: a green Theory sweater she has owned since 2005! Even stranger, Simpson, 32, paired the oversized “Juliette” poncho with Ugg boots, despite the fact temperatures reached a high of 82 degrees on the island that day. But she had good reason for all the covering up: she was hiding her baby bump! The very next day, on December 25, the “Fashion Star” mentor finally announced on Twitter that her 7-month-old daughter Maxwell Drew was going to be a “big sis.”
Simpson, 32, has gotten very good use out of her green sweater over the seven years she’s had it: She wore it over leggings for a run to the grocery store in April 2005, with flare jeans and pointy boots for a day out in September 2006, and even as a mini dress with sky-high blue suede wedges to show off her toned legs in May 2011.

Two months earlier, in March of that year, Simpson told People her favorite sweater “has been through a lot … It’s my magic sweater!” And it has gotten just as much action out of the public eye. “I like to wear [it] with just underwear around the house,” the fashion designer added with a laugh.

Now that it’s official that she’s expecting her second child with fiancé Eric Johnson, some wondered if Simpson’s $4 million deal with Weight Watchers would be in jeopardy, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. On Tuesday, the company tweeted out their congratulations to their famous client: “Congrats...what an amazing year you've had.” They also put out a press release noting that Simpson “will not be following the program during the pregnancy while her weight and well-being are monitored by her obstetrician, as is recommended for any woman during pregnancy,” in addition to a new ad spot, where Simpson shares her happy baby news with viewers.
