Is she or isn’t she? The Internet has been abuzz lately about whether Jessica Simpson is pregnant, and speculation reached a fever pitch after new photos surfaced Tuesday.

In the pictures, Simpson, who is engaged to former NFL player Eric Johnson, is wearing a baggy black top and carrying a large handbag to partially cover her midsection. She was photographed at LAX after a trip home to her native Texas for a work commitment.

Her reps haven’t responded to the rumors, leaving fans to study the photos to decide for themselves if Simpson is, indeed, expecting.

The fashion mogul and reality star, 31, and Johnson, 32, have not revealed a wedding date, and have said they’re not in any hurry to tie the knot.

“We’re enjoying our commitment to each other,” Simpson said recently. “We want to take our time We might elope if it gets to that point.”
