Jessica Simpson has spent months trying to fool us with an array of big bags, bulky cloths and other baby bump distracting devices all designed to keep our attention off her burgeoning belly.
This week the singer and reality star is busy hitting the beach with her baby bump. The singer decided to beat the paparazzi to the punch by tweeting her own first photo of her baby bump in a beautiful patterned bikini with the caption, "Bumpin' and proud!" This came a day after the singer hit the beach in her favorite baggy sweater and plush Uggs just days after announcing that she is expecting her second child with fiance Eric Johnson. The new photos come just days after she posted her own picture on Twitter in a red beach cover-up looking quite boob-alicious with the caption, "Fun in the Sun".
