Jessica Simpson probably stocked the tree with plenty of gifts for her baby girl Maxwell on Christmas Day, and also slipped another out to her Twitter followers.

The singer seems to have confirmed rumors that she’s expecting again -- only seven months after giving birth.

“Big sis,” a message scribbled in sand read in a photo Simpson uploaded to the social network, featuring baby Maxwell in some adorable Christmas footie pajamas.


“Merry Christmas from my family to yours,” a message attached to the photo read.

Reports of the second pregnancy have been floating for weeks as the singer, engaged to Eric Johnson, has been sporting loose-fitting clothing.

It’s been a busy seven months for Simpson, and not just for the obvious reasons: She’s been stepping out in support of her Weight Watchers campaign, and recently played maid of honor at the nuptials of Cacee Cobb and Donald Faison.
