(Newser) – More from the Not Such Shocking News Dept: Jessica Simpson is pregnant. The 31-year-old performer today made a Halloween-theme announcement, tweeting a pic of herself dressed as a mummy and rubbing her tummy: "It's true. I am going to be a mummy," she wrote. Her first baby with fiance Eric Johnson apparently isn't impeding her schedule, either: She's agreed to mentor alongside Nicole Richie on the forthcoming NBC reality show, Fashion Star, the AP reports.
