Ashlee and Bronx in NYC (RS/X17online.com)
It looks like the world will have to wait a little longer for the arrival of Jessica Simpson's baby. Earlier today, Ashlee Simpson, younger sister of the "Fashion Star" mentor, touched down in New York City with her 3-year-old son, Bronx Wentz. They are in the Big Apple for a visit — perhaps to spend time with Ashlee's boyfriend "Boardwalk Empire" star Vincent Piazza, who resides there — making it seem highly unlikely that her famous sister will be giving birth anytime soon.
Ashlee, 27, and her curly-haired cutie were all smiles after their cross-country flight. In the series of photos of the twosome, they were dressed in color-coordinated outfits — mostly darker hues of black and gray — and Bronx, whose dad is Ashlee's ex-husband Pete Wentz, clutched a Lego toy. Later, he rested his head on her shoulder for a nap.
In February during New York Fashion Week, Ashlee and Piazza, who have been dating since last year, gave their first joint interview. He said that there's nothing better than when she visits him in the Big Apple. "I love when we get to spend time in New York together," he told reporters. "It's where I'm from so we always have a good time." Their idea of a perfect night? They like to "hang at home and cook," she said. He called her "my sous chef" and said their favorite meals to make are "fish or pasta or something, steaks." She gushed: "He's amazing."
Jessica, seen here with Johnson, has been keeping a low profile (Sharma, Bruja/Pacifi …It's an exciting time for the extended Simpson family as Jessica nears the arrival of her first child with her fiancé Eric Johnson. After announcing her pregnancy on Halloween, Jessica has shared (and sometimes over shared) many details of her pregnancy with the public, especially as she's spent the last few months promoting her NBC reality series. However, after hitting just about every talk show imaginable and sharing funny pregnancy observations — like "I feel like a bowling ball sitting on my hoo-ha," which she told Jimmy Kimmel — in the last couple weeks the fashionista has been out of the spotlight. She still tweets during her weekly show, but she hasn't been photographed at all recently.
omg! reached out to Jessica's rep to see if she's on bed rest, but we have not yet received a response.
Either way, Jessica is in the home stretch, but — with her sister across the country — she can't be that close to her due date. Can she?
