OK! Magazine has announced in its cover story that singer Jessica Simpson is pregnant.

Simpson and her fiancé, former NFL player Eric Johnson, are going to have a baby.

The magazine hit shelves Thursday (Oct. 27). It carries a statement by Simpson: Well, now I can eat anything I want and no one will care. It's just sort of a rule with pregnant women.

Life and Style Magazine earlier reported that Simpson is having a baby girl and that she and Johnson are scheduled to be married in Hawaii Nov. 11.

Simpson, according to Page Six, wants a paycheck in exchange for confirming news of her pregnancy. We're told the Simpsons were asking up to $500,000 to close the deal, the paper writes.
