Jessica Simpson expecting a baby boy (report)

First of all, apologies for leaving you with one little post yesterday — about Tom Arnold! That wasn't very nice of me, was it? It's just that Josh-O's been leaving early for work and coming home very late this week, and my parents are away. So it's just me and the kids. AND..., they are both lying down sick next to me. Flu! (And of course, I had tons of other stuff to do for our fair website....) So it's one of those weeks. Hopefully, things will start looking up tomorrow.

In the meantime, I've got a juicy(ish) report.

This just in from RadarOnline: Jessica Simpson, 32, is reportedly having a baby boy.

This is juicy because you guys love your Jessica Simpson candy..., plus it's all over the Internet this morning.

According to Radar's sources, Jessica found out she was having a boy earlier this week. "When the doctor told her it was a boy," a source said, "she screamed with joy."

"She was so happy that [eight-month-old] Maxwell is getting a little brother because that’s something she always wanted when she was growing up," the source added.

Apparently, Jessica and her fiancé, Eric Johnson, are so thrilled they're already talking boy names.

"It's Jessica's dream come true," the source said. "She prayed she was having a boy."

OK, so their first child's name is Maxwell — so boyish and not even on the radar for unisex names (until now) — so what do you think they'll name their baby boy?
